    Somewhat interesting, but only if you have something on the board already, otherwise it's just a worse Kobold Geomancer

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    We're so close to getting a 1-drop spell damage minion, I don't think spell damage minion for 1 mana would be broken these days, or maybe.

    You could use this with mana reservoir and shadow step for a cheap finisher in Rogue or you can get spell damage x 6 for 8 mana in druid I know I will try to make this work.

    Actually the more I think about it there are dozens of way you can make a threat out of these for almost every class

    I don't think it will make the cut for constructed play. It's just weak in my opinion.

    Easily the worst one of the 3.

    Edit: I mean spell damage is not that great when you need to have another minion to trigger it, we had a fisherman for 2 and a 2/3 that did the same saw 0 constructed play.

    The weakest out of all the Augmerchant cards, this might see play in some weird combo deck with Spellzerker in wild,  but that would just be a meme.

    The worst Augmerchant, I believe. This card is technically the only one mana spell damage minion in the game, but requires you to control another minion, so cannot set up a turn 2 wipe against decks like pirate warrior. Decks that want to ping their own minions with a one mana card would be better off with the other two augmerchants.

    Cool effect and super strong in druid (where +2 spell damage can be a huge diffence for a board clear)

    Someone will make a OTK utilizing this. Otherwise, won't see play

    I just don't see it being used. The other two Augmerchants are more reliable and better equipped for trades and the like; this one wants to combo with spells, and a lot of things have to go right just so you can have +1 damage on a spell at the correct moment you want to cast it.

    I really like the Augmerchants, but this is quite situational. Most spell-heavy classes don't run alot of minions that sustain damage well.

    dealing 1 damage to give a minion spell damage +1 seems okay? but this is a ... 3 card combo and I'm not sure where this would fit...

    Still better than Elven Archer.

    Just play it with Magic Carpet and give carpet spell damage and make your Mortal Coils 2 damage pings. :)
