Azure Drake 2....except the meta is gone too far for it to work. Probably too slow for any constructed deck, but it's fun at least.
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.

IKR thought a few days ago.. would azure drake be playable today? and I got the the conclusion that.. no.. it wouldn't.
inb4 'What the hell is this?' meme with Azure Drake and Ethereal Conjurer. This card seems pretty good in spell+battlecry Shaman decks or possibly some highlander lists, but I struggle to see any wider applications.
The strength of azure drake in raza priest is solely due to it filling so many roles in the deck, a source of spell damage AND a dragon AND deck thinning is what makes the card.
This only has one of those traits, and it's the worst one. This is unlikely to see play anywhere, unless the elemental tag somehow becomes important.
This post is discussing the wild format.
The down-vote is an 'I disagree' button, not an insult.
I will definitely try this in Elemental Mage and Shaman with DK Jaina and Kalimos.
As I have said many times before, I am very anxious at any chance to make Spell Damage a thing, but not for this card. This is to be honest, straight up trash. Nobody is going to spend an extra 5 mana on a spell to deal 1 extra damage, the discover effect is nice, but not for 5 mana. This could have been a 4 mana 4/5 and it would have been okay, but as a 5 mana 4/4 it is just bad.

The ability isn't bad. It could be used as a way for any class to Discover a spell, although it's not that good for the Spell Damage since you typically want those to be as cheap as possible unless it's Malygos.
This seems really solid, it even has semi taunt because the oponent may want to destroy it before you play something.
Slower than Vulpera Scoundrel. Yes that's it. Just play Vulpera Scoundrel
What else it there is to say? It discovers a spell, which is good. But at 5 mana, which means you're taking a major risk here.
Unless casino dhunters are here, not likely to ever see play outside of being discovered itself.
Decent - but i only see this working out in Shaman, mostly Burn or Spell Damage Shaman.

Maybe to slow for some decks, but the fact that it is common could make this fit into budget spell-damage decks.
Might see play in highlander decks, but i'm sure that pre-nerf [cardAzure Drake would be too weak these days. The thing Steward of Scrolls got going for it is the fact it can discover a spell instead of drawing a card. But i feel like that's still not good enough. Also it's a elemental, and standard right now has almost no elemental synergy cards that this can profit from.
In wild: This feels too weak, even in elemental decks with a lot of synergy. There are just way better elementals out there.
Superb card! Azure Drake saw so much play that they HoF'd it. This is a slight twist, and very good.
"Be excellent to each other." -Bill and Ted
Too slow. And the RNG is too big to be worth it to discover ANY spell :(. I doubt it will see any play.

Good but not excellent...
The new Azure Drake!!!! We have only one problem: right now this minion isn't enough to be competitive. Even if Azure Drake return I doubt it will see any play....like this card
Might see play in some clases...
Lemushki - The one and only since 2006
Not as good as Azure Drake, but VERY strong in Midrange and Control decks.
You might as well say it doesn't have spell damage (except for stuff like Primordial Studies) cause you won't get to use it much. Then you realize it's a much weaker Big Ol' Whelp.
Related but unrelated, didn't Arcane Dynamo see play?
