    Am I wrong to think that this is better than the legendary? If Halduron is in your bottom 10 he's useless, but you can always keep this for a bigger payoff later and also play it twice (and combo with Brann for maximum greed)


    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Im on the fence with this card. Because hunters dont draw very well in the early game so if youre dropping this on two youre essentially playing a river croc. And you might well be forced to do it, because hunters dont tend to play for tempo very well. So we're faced with a situation where this card can be excellent, but conversely might be a brick in the hand.

    Like all the other arcane hunter cards its clunky. But if Talented Arcanist proves a better, more consistent, trigger for Conjured Arrow we might actually have to cut this card from the list because what the point of playing a river croc on 2 when there's a slew of better 2 drops?

    Kinda lame that this is basically the same effect as Halduron Brightwing but for arcane spells in your hand. This minion is ofc weaker coz you don't want to hold onto your spells, but hey, not idea how this new archetype will function. It'll probably be more midrange and have Renathal, like the current beast hunter... ah, honestly I'd just play beast hunter.

    I kinda aggree that this steps on the legendaries toes a bit too much for the same set. Maybe Halduron could do ALL spells or do hand AND deck to feel more worthy of a  legendary.

    Overall I like this card though. Feels like it pays for itself easily with just 1 hit and anymore is icing on the cake.

    While I worry hunter doesn't have enough Arcane to make these 2 cards worth much I appreciate spell school matters cards. Makes things much more interesting. Especially on a class that doesn't have a lot of spell schools to start with.

    Wait ..?! Now the spell themselves get to be enhanced? Kinda unique, so I see where the "legendary" feel is, but in a class where you wouldn't want your spell - nor your minions, for that matter -  to just sit in hand until the right time, makes this clunky at best.

    Surprisingly nearsighted.

    I'm not sure if Hunter will get a big enough hand to be worth playing this out, or at least not without already using a Conjured Arrow first. Suppose buffing up the spells for a later turn as merit over any generic Spell Damage minion.

    This on 2, followed by Halduron Brightwing, followed by Eversong Portal ought to be good (or a second copy of this instead of Halduron, but that would be a bit less good).

    This seems pretty good. You can pump up your Eversong Portal before turn 4 (if its in hand) and also buff some other arcane spells. Seems good.

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    Pretty strong card, even if it only affects spells in hard. Has decent stats to boot, too!
