    So it has spellburst...and summons a copy...that has spellburst...that summons a copy...that has spellburst.

     

    Anyone else feeling the turn 1 full board cheese?

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    As funny as this card is, I don’t think it’ll be that great altogether. You need to go all in and use up your entire hand, just for a board of 1/1’s, maybe some 3/3’s if you have buffs in hand.

    By the time you can do that, you can also get punished really badly for it

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    Not bad if you can get a serious combo or hand buff, but not something I'd play on turn 1 where it's super vulnerable.

    I guess it is good for token buff? I don't know, I think druid does not use more than 3 cards for token generation and buff and this seems to need more spells for being good. 3/5 stars for me.

    Initially, I thought this card was just a joke card like Feral Gibberer, but then I thought about it and it actually isn't bad. If you use a single spell then it is Alleycat for a class that really likes tokens. If you get 2 spells or more than it is just really good value for 1 mana. The only issue I see is that only one Gibberer will have the Spellburst active at a time, which means your opponent just has to ping one of them and the chain ends, but you should be able to get enough value out of this guy in one turn to still be worth it.

    Expect to see videos of Druids getting godhand openings with this card and just having a board of 3/3s turn 1.

    Nice for aggressive token druids.

    A little annoying that the summoned token doesn't get buffed by board buff effects, but that shouldn't stop the card from seeing play.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    90% sure I saw this around the custom hearthstone subreddit.  Might be good enough for Token Druids since they run a lot of spells, but the impact seems kind of 'meh' to warrant this over other cards.

    Token druid or some other variation of aggro druid is kinda being pushed in this final reveal. I wonder if it will find ground once the expansion is actually released.

    I'm not convinced of this Card.

    Druid already has good Token Generators that don't need you to dump your Spells.

    Long, drawn-out Control Match-ups with Boardclears en masse and an unbelievable amount of greedy cards?

    Seems horrible to me. Sure it can go "infinite", BUT druid isn't going to cast that many spells early game. Also there are a lot of cheap clears these days. So sticking this will be hard.

    Yet another cheap way for Druids to flood the board. They're weak compared to treants and glowflies, but Druid has buffs...

    Cute, but I'm not sure if it's great.

    You definitely can get a board full of these and buff them extremely early in the game, but that feels like it might be too niche.

    If you have multiple spells and want to flood your board then this card will be good.

    There's a small chance in token druid, but its otherwise just filler material. Had it been a 1/2 at least it would've been just great. Too bad.

    First off - i love the art!

    Very good card for Aggro Token Druid. And the Effect is very much op - at least for early game development.

    Historically Token Druid Decks have used Violet Teacher as a way to create large boards of sticky minions with power of the wild and soul of the forest, but for 4 mana Violet Teacher was sometimes clunky to play, and with Exotic Mount Seller and Kael'Thas Sunstrider Druids completely abandoned the violet teacher.

    So, a minion that's 3 mana cheaper that also creates 1/1 tokens from spells you play should see play, being 3 turns faster than Violet Teacher and 6 turns faster than Exotic Mount seller. While the first Gibberer will only summon 1 additional Gibberer due to spellburst, the new Gibberer will still retain it's spellburst ability, allowing you to repeat the effect as you desire.

    So on turn 2 you can play this on for (1) mana and have a mana left over. play the coin or innervate to summon another and have (2) mana to play Power of the wild and give your minions +1/+1, which will summon another Gibberer with your board receiving the buff giving you 6/6 worth of stats across 3 bodies.

    Card also has a soft synergy with survival of the fittest, and while you might not be able to play them on the same turn if this spells hits while a gibberer is on the board it will summon another that will gain the buff for two minions with 5/5 of stats. 

    since you'll be playing spells in token druid there's a high chance you'll be able to save at least 1 or two of the gibberers needed for a good soul of the forest play to lead into savage roar.

    I think when the new Gibberling is summoned it will have Spell Burst.

    So this + Lightning Bloom x2 + Innervate x2 + Moonfire x2 will give you a full board and 6 aviable mana for Blessing of the Ancients x2.

    28/28 board for a 9 card combo. Not that bad lol
