    Scrying is good in MTG, I don't see why hearthstone should be any different. I am very interested in how much this card will be played.

    *edit* also in wild Twig of the World Tree is now broken.

    1 mana make your draws better? maybe.. probably not that great since you don't gain anything really since the deck is random you just discard one bad posibility..

    maybe weapon buffs or cards like twig.

    First Transfer Student, then Lorekeeper, and now a Neutral Legendary weapon, this expansion is breaking all the molds.  Idk how to properly judge this, but I don't think it will see play.  There are better ways to cycle through your deck or even tutor what you're looking for where this might be run, but I'm open to this seeing play.  We've never seen a Neutral scry-esque effect, so who knows what could come out of it.

    Fun card for combo decks, you can now guarantee that your win condition is the last card in your deck :^)

    I don'T really see any practical use for this, but there might be some decks that really don't want to draw a specific card until they meet some sort of condition, so this might be good for those (like Rogues trying to draw Malygos through Galakrond or something similar).

     

    Enables a guaranteed OTK for Quest Warlock if you put Malygos at the bottom and then hero power into it.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Good point. But with Blingtron, you had to spend a total of 9 mana to get 10 mana. Now you have to spend a total of 5 mana to get 10 mana. And with the sphere you can set it up to have 19 mana in a single turn, but with blingtron you could get at most 15.

    I have no idea how to evaluate this, but I'm guessing that it goes into combo decks and not much else.

    Also, as mentioned earlier, twig of the world tree + this = 5 mana for 10 mana. Probably not needed when aviana + kun exists, but something to think about, especially given that this can also be used in combo druid decks to filter for pieces.

     

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    I really enjoyed Brann's tracking hero power in Tombs of Terror, so I'm happy to see it incarnated into a playable card to some extent.

    In the early game, it's not a mana problem; it's a consistency problem.  You have to draw 2 legendaries in class that can't tutor weapons and you have better and more reliable ways to ramp.  At turn 10 you are talking about a difference 4-9 mana, in a class that can heavily reduce the cost of cards in your hand via other minions plus cheat mana with cards like Floop.  There might be something broken here but I don't think so.

    Very good points. You are probably right and this won't make Twig of the World Tree into a big card. I didn't consider druids many other ways in which to cheat out mana, and by the time you have set up a combo with Twig into Sphere Into malygos or something you could have just as easily played Aviana + Innervate + Kun the forgotten king.

    Don’t think it’d be quite as good as it would be in Magic, given that it helps to draw mana when you want it and draw a spell when you want it. Hearthstone doesn’t do that, so the difference between drawing your highest impact card and your lowest impact card is much closer than in Magic

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    Scrying in HS - I like it.

    You can kinda rearrange your deck with the last 2 neutral legendaries. Which can be powerful, I guess. Or at least - experiment-worthy.

    in a game about drawing cards knowing what you may draw should always be good.

    and while this card and effect is powerful you should not forget that putting the card on the bottom of your deck means you may not see it for the rest of the game unless you are a very draw heavy class. 

    It should also be noted that this card does not offer its ability when drawing extra cards, so Plot Twist will not give you a chance to choose what you draw with this weapon. 

    It will still be very powerful with control decks, I believe, as they will have an extra chance to look for board clear and life sustain to keep the match going while their opponent runs out of steam, combo decks may also see this weapon in order to get crucial components for their win condition.

    The only question is what do you substitute in your deck slot for this item?

    Its just a meme card at best. Rng to draw it, and you rid that card you draw to the bottom of your deck.

    It has a slightly positive effect of maybe condemning a bomb to the bottom (in effect means the bomb will never trigger) assuming it works the way I think it does but that's a small niche not worthy of a deckslot.

    This will be excellent for Recruit Warrior. I can use the Armory to draw 2 weapons, 1 of these being it and can send any big minions back while I draw the lower control cards.

    I never played MTG, so i am not familiar with Scry from personal experience, but the effect on this seems pretty interesting. Tho the biggest question will be, is this worth a card? You are already putting cards you do want to play in your deck and just drawing something else might not be worth it. Tho it could save you in a clutch, so who knows how will this end up performing.

    Im honestly not too worried about Twig, whatever combo you were going to pull off, you just added another card to it. But then again, drawing cards was never Druids weakness, at least not in combo decks, so maybe it will push it over the top.

    At first I thought ”Wow!” After reading some of your comments, this is propably not as good as one could think at first sight. Still like the creativity behind this card.
