    NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS AT ALL. NOT LIKE MAGE GOT A 1-MANA SPELL DAMAGE GUY AND A WAY TO REDUCE HIM TO 0 BEFOREHAND.

     

    Yeah, have fun seeing this a lot in Mage. If you throw in Khadgar as well it's like Conjurer's Calling was never nerfed

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Could be good in Spell Damage Shaman or Mage, but I'm not entirely confident in the archetype or card.  Seems a bit slow, but 12/12 is a lot of stats, so who knows.

    It's not bad, but needs spell damage support, if you don't have it on the field that means investing more mana and let's say you play a 2 mana spell power and this, then you could have just played Power of Creation

    we saw if you have spell damage on board before.. Master of Ceremonies it's HARD to have a spell damage card on board.. they are always killed and understated.

    sure the reward is strong but it's a slow reward, much slower than Master of Ceremonies which never was considered

    Not very easy to get to activate, and 6 mana for nothing but stats is a little slow for any aggro decks.

    I don't expect this to see a lot of play.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    The down-vote is an 'I disagree' button, not an insult.

    I reckon it'll probably be experimented with in SD Mage or Shaman, and then probably subsequently dropped by most of them. The payoff is pretty good and maybe easier to get off due to the new synergy, which is why it'll be experimented with. But then it might get dropped because this isn't the type of payoff the deck really wants.

    Lol. Its a high powered card that will only realistically be seen in shaman and mage.

    Is it strong? Yes, but then again, if there's spell damage on board wouldn't you rather, you know, cast spells?

    So its a small niche for tempo mage, but potentially very strong. I personally dont think it'll ever see play, since its proven with cards like Animated Avalanche that any expensive card that doesnt affect board will likely just be too slow.

    I think this is a sleeper card !

     

    Does not look that good at first but i think we will see this card a lot because Mage has lots of potential to get the effect going. Like we've seen on the Reveal Stream he played it on 6 with a 0 Mana Spell damage guy!

    Yeah, this will see play for sure. Should be easy to activate in the upcoming meta.

    Shaman and mage spell damage synergies could make use of this, at some extend hunter too with Vereesa Windrunner

    I'm skeptical about this card. 6 mana 12/12 seems really good, but i feel like spell-damage/burn decks might not want such a late game minion. They probably want their opponents to have 0 hp by then. But hey 12/12 on turn 6 shouldn't be underestimated. My guess is that it will certainly see experimentation, but it will fall off quick.

    6 mana for 2x6/6 is just GG on turn 6. 

    I guess the only "good" thing about this card is that it's not a mage minion (it would have been too obvious, right?!), so mage can't get it from the raven or the spell that gives you 3 mage minions if you have spells only deck.

    Good minion to pick from Power of Creation. This day it's too slow probably, but 6 mana for a 12/12 is quite interesting for a neutral card. Need some test to judge better this card

    Unless you can reliably cast if for 2x 6/6, then it's good. Since you probably can't, I find it hard to fit in standard. In arena is almost an Ogre, thats enough usually.

    This is an amazing swing card for Spell Damage decks that will give them some good board presence later in the game. I think this is a card people will have to think about when it is turn 5 and you have a spell damage minion on the field. And even just playing this on turn 7 with the new mage 1-drop isn't terrible.

    Seems solid but I'm not sure if it will make the card in spell damage lists.
