    You get spell generation, and you get spell generation... everyone gets spell generation!

    Strong body and good effect.

    Good inclusion on any dragon deck.

    By The Holy Light!

    Definitely not going to make the cut for standard. Maybe some nice shenanigans in arena tho. Too much rng, blah.

    Just too random and too slow a body to see significant play.

    The statline is pretty okay though, and random spells are usually acceptable at worst, as most spells at least do something good.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    Well, there's our dragon synergy at least. I have a feeling that spell generation could become key for the next few months, given it's emphasis in this set.

    not bad at all, but a bit too expensive. Cobalt Spellkin saw some play, but that's because it's much easier to predict what you might get (and can use).

    Great Arena card though.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    4/9 for 6 isn't bad, and the effect could be strong. Might see play in spell-Dragon decks.

    But bigger.

    Honestly I don't think this is a bad card. It is a well designed neutral card. It is flexible, generic, not too powerful, but good enough to consider playing.

    Its a 4/9 for six. That's already good enough in my eyes.

    Probably see him more often out of a discover effect though, since its still effectively a bigger conditional cobalt spelkin. Too bad, I really like the art, the stats, and that its a dragon.

    Excellent, more fodder for my Dragon Casino Mage.  I think its probably a bit slow though.  Cobalt gave targeted spell addition, random spells might be too unreliable or niche for this to see regular play.

    A good followup to Cobalt Spellkin and boosts Dragon Mage decks even more. That 9 HP body can help with control to set up the damage spells for Shaman.

    Frizz Kindleroost lowering the cost of the card will make it playable... but only if Frizz hits the board before you draw it.

    "We will tone down rng and resource generation and direct them mostly to mage and priest"

    Yeah sure.

    aren't his stats really good? also has a dragon tag.. so maybe can be used in highlander mage.

    This card could slot into Highlander Mage or Highlander Priest.  Probably most Highlander decks honestly.  Outside of that he's pretty meh.

    Effect a bit too random, as others said. Spellkin is more predictable. Still cool effect though. Always appreciate a dragon. Could see some use for sure and strong in arena.

    Now that is a spicy Dragon! Highlander lists are going to love this.

    What ever happened to less resource generation across the board? But here, have a Neutral resource generator so everyone can have a bunch of spells that didn't start in their deck!

    Very interesting, could mean a lot of vaule for the right decks. On the other hand, it's slow and you need to have spell to activate the Spellburst.
