    This minion is not good, cause spell power is something you want immediatelly and this is delayed..

    3/3 stats for 2 in arena so there's that.

    I mean...it's not awful. It's a better Kobold Geomancer on the basis that it's better stat value for the mana cost, meaning you can play it even without leveraging spelll damage and you still did okay.

    I would use this in Quest Hunter if that deck ran any damaging spells.

    Maybe there's a Warlock deck that runs this alongside of Sac Pact and some damaging spells. Warlock likes Spell damage but they are rarely able to justify running them, so maybe the upside of getting a smol demon helps in some way

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    not good. If you want spell damage their are better alternatives and it's delayed, while you want it activated immediatly.

    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.

    Edit : my objection was objected before being received - no further questions, your Honor - 3/3 is also what I'm stating

    Another filler. We kinda need them, because usually the first exp of the year is the weakest one and now we are getting DH, Prime cards and demons everywhere.

    I don‘t think this card will be used somwhere outside the Arena. If you need some spelldamage, you want ist immediatly.

    meh..1/1 with +1 spell dmag..feels like bliz works so hard on the class specific cards but makes these neutral cards not so useful..might as well categorize them as arena maybe cards

    It's a decent arena card, but spell power isn't strong enough for this to see play.

    A fiddly card. I would say that this is unlikely to see any play, wide aggro strategies have better cards than this available.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    2 mana for a 3/3 +1 spell damage. Better of Kobold Geomancer but i prefer Ethereal Augmerchant in deck that want some spellpower

    Hmm... it's pretty bad... unless...

    OTK deathrattle spell Hunter in Wild?

    I'm going to have to think about this one.

    Too much hassle to see play: you want Spell Damage to be reliably accessible, and this doesn't do that.

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

    This minion's honestly too weak to see play on it's own, even with the token with spell damage.

    Hmm interesting effect but very weak play i suppose. Cool flavor, though.

    Well, All says something about Spell Damage +1 but there is a fact that it is still a 2/2 that summons a 1/1 with an upside and which has also a tribe.

    This is a fair card, but because Blizzard always powercreep, we all think that this card is not good enough.

    This is a good card for zoo/token type decks imo.

    Definitely an arena card. You don't want to run this in constructed, unless you are new to the game and lack Bloodmage Thalnos. That card is strictly better, unless you somehow can game the deathrattle effect to trigger multiple times and create your own cumulative Malygos effect.

    Hooray jank!

    If there was some damage spell you really wanted to play turn 3, then maybe it could see play (since it kind of protects the spell damage) but beyond that it’s not too great

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?
