Firelands for 5 :0
That's shockingly good .. 5 mana-5 dmg- 5 drop ; I know its a big ''if'' but a deck full of spells for mage should be doable, or so is Team5 telling us ^^
Struggle with Heroic Galakrond's Awakening? I got your back :
So obviously this is good, but is it even possible to build around this? We already had both Mage legendaries revealed and neither of them really work with this (Evocation does, but doesn't exactly help that much).
There's also the draw problem. Only Arcane Intellect won't cut it if you can't even play the board.
I'm assuming there will be more cards to support this, but without a big payoff card a la Rhok'delar I don't see this working out
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.

It may take a set or two before all the support that was intended for the archetype is available, and mind you, more cards are to be revealed. There is still hope !.... Or it will be yet an other Totem Shamy fiasco
No minion deck? Interesting, but competitive? Not so sure.

Mage has definitely enough Removal and Aoe to support this Archetype. Flamestrike, Blizzard, Frost Nova, Ray of Frost, etc.
Drawing Cards might be an Issue. Randomly generating them however...

Why not? the spell is really good and helps such an archtype.. what we need is
1. another card with such payoff.
2. more proactive cards that generate minions like in hunter..
But isn't it just the same archtype but in other class?
Hey, new mage archetype! This card looks very promising, any card that can remove a minion and get you a minion on the field is worth considering. Obviously this card isn't very good on its own, but I am under the impression that this archetype will be getting a lot more support this expansion. At least two other cards that either say "no minions" or just really really want you to have a lot of spells.
Carrion, my wayward grub.
Albatross mucks with this card a *lot*.

I'm intrigued by the possibility of a no-minions mage, but at the same time, why is this exactly Firelands Portal for less? Couldn't it have done something slightly different?

I think a Spell-only type of Mage might not work, and this card is also a pretty bad card to get "randomly".
If no-minion Mage get's more support, this card might be interesting. But for now, such a deck doesn't look very promising.
Bad card. Needs a lot of support
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 spell mage card. mini pyro with a kick. still this does not beat the RNG mage cards that I am anticipating.
Firelands Portal - save 2 mana by having no minions in your deck.
This will see play in pure spell mage, but I don't think that it's enough pay-off for that deck to work.
I ma unsure if a pure spell mage deck will be something competitive. If that's the case, this is will be a staple, but I have seious doubts about it.
Well, No-Minion Mage is one of those archetypes that will be supported - directly or indirectly - with each new expansion. It might not be enough direct pay-off right now, but we'll have to see. Still looks like fun.
