    Very nice to see a volcanic potion for warlocks that doesn't miss demons.

    Definitely worth trying out in a lot of renolock decks, maybe even mecha'thun where you can draw the fragments semi-regularly.

    EDIT: This does disable reno, but I think that the effect is worth it for the fact that you'll likely draw at least one fragment before you need reno.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    I think people will play this because all of the Soul Fragment payoffs are very powerful, but this card specifically doesn't look as good as some of the other cards that shuffle Soul Fragments. I haven't seen Demonwrath played in a very long time. This card will be played because Soul Fragments are probably worth it, but it isn't my favorite card in the Soul Fragment package.

    I like it a lot, but I feel like it might clash with Dark Skies.

     

    Then again, having extra AoE and healing  is never a bad thing, so I can see this become a staple in control lists (especially if Demon Hunter continues to be at the top of the meta)

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Would even play it out without other soul fragment cards, good card overall.

    Cheap board clear, and it does good damage. Just look at priests, they are really hard to deal with early game because of their early game board clears. I feel like School Spirits might actually be better than cards that do something similar, like Breath of the Infinite, Holy Nova, or in WILD Demonwrath. Sure most of them are in different classes, but if you compare them i think School Spirits is way better. If you compare it to Holy Nova, School Spirits is 1 mana cheaper, and heals for 4 health. Sure only heals your face, targets ALL minions & you need to find the Soul Fragments first, but the Soul Fragments have a lot of synergy with other cards while in your deck. 

    This is a great control tool, and that's it. It will only see play in control warlock decks, but it's also healing. And healing is something warlock currently in standard really lacks. Also this won't see play in any highlander decks, because of the Soul Fragments.

    I love the soul fragment theme this expansion because it fuels my Rafaam Quest Warlock exceptionally well.  This card especially helps get rid of wide boards earlier that Hellfire and is more consistent that Dark Skies, as well as providing some much needed healing and quest ticks.  Once the quest is done and Rafaam is in hand, all remaining fragments become random legendaries and help push back fatigue.

    Interesting concept. And since warlock likes to draw - should be easy to get the healing part as well.

    Volcanic Potion with Soul Fragments seems decent. Unlike Demonwrath, it still hits enemy Demons in mirror matches.

    Great control card, both removal and healing in one. Will see play in all control warlock decks.

    just being Volcanic Potion is good enough warlock got a TON of control tools this expansion it's currently slightly weaker since the galakround decline but it might be enough to give it new life.

    You definetly can't play alexstraza and zephyrs with those cards though.

    Volcanic Potion with an upside. Even if you didn't want to play any of the synergies, this is good enough for a control deck that wants the extra healing and the AOE.

    Volcanic Potion and powers the Soul Fragment cards. Good but not great.

    This is probably one of the better Soul Fragment generators -

    Volcanic Potion saw some constructed play in mage decks as early removal (since Arcane Explosion is REALLY bad), and warlocks who play control haven't have good, cheap aoe removal since Defile since KotFT.

    True for 1 mana more you can play hellfire, but Hellfire has the drawback of hurting your hero as well, and by turn 4 your opponent's aggressive board my have already hit you for enough that you don't want to deal 3 additional damage to yourself.

    This comes out a turn faster, doesn't hurt your hero, and shuffles in 2 cantrips that will heal you for the cost of your hero power, which warlocks love to use.

    5 star card, will see play in constructed

    Demon wrath was already a good card with the main downside being that it’s useless in the mirror, this still hits demons while also giving you healing later on, and giving fuel for other cards. I’d be amazed if this didn’t see a lot of play

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    If we can shuffle soul fragment consistently on the first 3 turn, i believe this will see much play. Especially against DH with a lot of 2-hp minions.

    Good Card , like Breath of the Infinite or Volcanic Potion and is also helps you with Soul Fragments - but still good even if you would not play Fragments.

    Demonwrath got worse because of Demon Hunters, you can't hurt their early Demons. I think it will be played in control anytime aggro rises.

    Its yet another AoE for warlock. Cheaper than Hellfire, but doing less damage. Whether this can make it will depend highly on whether the additional soul fragments are worth it, and whether its actually a better meta card than either Dark Skies or crazed netherwing.

    Ok board clear for fragments builds. Not bad since the fragments are kind of slow to get to use.
