    Very solid if slightly less reliable then Vulpera Scoundrel.

    The elemental tag doesn't really matter at the moment, but that might change.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    This will be run in every shaman deck for the next two years. Amazing effect, and its Vulpera Scoundrel with better bases. Also good for wild elemental shaman?

    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.

    Really depends on how easy it is to put out spells on 2. Its not a curve card so its actually concerning to have this in your deck. Vulpera Scoundrel might just be better, since its more reliable.

    A solid 3-drop that is also useful in the late game. Definitely an intersting minion that could fit into both aggro and control decks.

    Contrarily to Totem shaman, I can totally side with Elemental shaman. I like this one, a lot, actually!
    Marshspawn hopes to someday be promoted to Marshsqueen.

    Elemental shaman with a twist. I kinda like it. And Discover is such a awesome mechanic.

    hard to play this on curve.. which spell would you cast on 2? rather I think the idea is to cast Serpentshrine Portal and then play this card.

    feels like a filler card for the conditional play sham. but this allows you to generate some more spells for the win. we'll see if this will be effective during real play.

    Very solid and very strong: 3/4 for 3 mana, tag elemental and draw effect. Cast a spell is really easy to trigger, so for me it's an insane minion

    Good value generator, but I just don't see "spell shaman" happening and this is just not that good outside of it. Sure, it would be great with the quest reward, but in Quest Shaman you want lots of battlecry minions and very little spells, meaning you can't activate him consistently enough.

    Elemental+Spell-shaman! For all of us that like value a lot.

    Elemental really needs to be pushed for Shaman. If Spell Shaman can work, than this will be in it.

    Really hard to play on turn-3, so you'll have to wait until later to produce results. The potential is there; whether or not it can execute is another question entirely.

    If you have the time, you should totally check out our weekly Hearthstone card design competitions! :D

    It's solid stats make it playable, even with Shamans elemental tools rotating out.

    of course there aren't a lot of spells you can play on turn 2 that won't overload you and make you too overloaded to play on curve

    This card just feels very nice. It fills out a slot that isn't really filled by a lot of cards at a 3 mana value minion. I like this card in a lot of archetypes.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    Seems okay, but not very exciting. What elemental synergy does Shaman even have in the Year of the Phoenix?

    Nice minion but; same with Shattered Rumbler, wouldn't it be better if it say "elemental" instead of "spell" ? I mean the mechanic is same with elemental synergy but this time it is for spells. That's inconsistency in my opinion. Well, consistent for its own experience since shaman is themed like it but a general inconsistency i would say.

    Good body on curve and easy to activate. Easy pick for decks with more than just a few spells.
