    DO you gain 2 Excess Mana if cast at 10 mana? otherwise it's unplayable.

    I's double Wildgrowth in a  not too awful mana slot.

    Nourish at 5 was used for ramp occasionally back in the day, so this doesn#t seem too far off.

    In fact, this might actually be just enough to justify not running Quest in Druid for once. It curves directly into Overflow and also activates both of the new cards that need to be at 7-mana to cost 0, which, combined with Overflow could be big.

    I mean, realistically, if Quest Druid can afford playing suboptimally for like 3-4 turns then regular Druid can probably do it for just one turn, especially when you get more than enough mana to clap back on the following turn.

    At the very least it gives Spell Druid something to do in the early game outside of just stalling.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Need clarification on Excess Mana, the least explained mechanic in the game.

    This might see play as a one of in some decks.

    The huge Advantage this has over Nourish is that it can come out way earlier, in a State of the Game where Ramp has a much bigger Impact. 

    T2 Coin/Inervate Wild Growth into this would be a perfect Start. Imagine planting down a Winged Guardian on t4. Or, even better, a Marsh Hydra that'll keep on destroying tiny enemy Minions and giving you one big Guy after another.

    Might be a Dream Scenario, but it's more than possible.

    Ramp Druid was dead after the nerfs to Wild Growth and Nourish. Maybe this archetype will return with the next expansion. The currently strongest Druid decks, i.e., Quest Druid and Embiggen Druid, won't use this card though.

    Not sure what this will give you when you reach 10 mana. Probably just one Excess Mana.

    Its probably not going to see any play. Nourish as an option is just better since it can also draw you cards and is infinitely better when played in quest druid. But if it gives 2 Excess Mana at 10, there may be some use of this in a kael-thas deck to warrant play.

    Considering that Wild Growth was nerfed from (2) to (3) mana, this (4) mana one - doubling the effect for just (1) extra - seem to indicate that they had been too severe with the nerf hammer.

    Wow, big Wild Growth.

    At 4 mana, I think this will see play but won't be as impactful as pre-nerf wild growth.

    They try to bring back Ramp Druid with some tools this expansion, but it need more to be playable!

    Maybe next expansion!

    t2 breath

    t3 overgrowth

    t4 overflow into zero mana stuff (defender / bog beam), or winged gaurdian, or marsh hydra + ironbark

    t5 do one of the above again

    t6 ysera, maybe with an ironbark on it


    put some dragons in there, kaelthas and some innervates, nourish


    idk maybe its a deck.  probably not but it would be nutty.

    I really feel that they have to make the Excess Mana more consistent. I remember playing Jade Blossom on turn 10 in the past, thinking that it will give me an Excess Mana since Wild Growth has the same effect with an additional minion summoning. To my surprise, it doesn't. I was a new player back then.

    Hence, in theory and according to how Wild Growth works, you should get two Excess Mana when played on turn ten. However, it is very likely you will only get one Excess Mana.

    Its hard to evaluate since team5 have said before that Excess Mana is given so Wild Growth isnt a dead card at 10, which is why Nourish for mana at 10, and Jade Blossom doesnt work the same way (they both have secondary effects)

    I'm fairly certain they will give an excess mana at 10, but its not certain if it would be 1 or 2.

    Based on other cards (and I know they're not always consistent), this should definitely give you an Excess Mana, but only one. Remember Astral Communion? One Excess Mana card.

    Damn. The mana ramp will be off the charts. I don't think that was such a good idea :(. Druid will ramp the first 3 turns and then start slamming those big minions and then you have to nerf this card or dragon's breath or both. Why?

    Nice ramp card makes wild growth look silly. Regardless of the cost a turn 4 allowing you to play 7 cost on turn 5 is pretty nice ramp.

    Overgrowth turn-4 into Marsh Hydra turn-5 is a solid play. But it really needs to produce Excess Mana, as others have noted, so it's not a dead card at the end of the game.
