    It's a funny card for Casino Mage, I don't see it being much else. Maybe you could theoretically use this in an aggro deck to beef up your spells for the late game, but I don't see this card ever being used in a serious deck. Cards like this, Explore Un'Goro, and Renounce Darkness that basically say "your deck is random cards now" will never be good or competitive.

    Carrion, my wayward grub.

    Hey so you play secret mage then you cast this, you transform your secrets into 6 drop spells that cost 3, then you draw 3 mana Skull of Gul'dan and then you have 6 drop spell that cost 0... Seems balanced

    This is insane. The randomness makes it inconsistent, but this will surely be a fun card.

    Renounce Darkness 2.0 here! I don't see much competitive viability in including this card in your deck, as you include spells in your deck to achieve a desired and controllable effect. Deck of Lunacy essentially throws away the consistency of your spells in an attempt to create possible future power spikes. However, the real issue here is that you now have less of an idea of what you're going to draw and can plan less around it. Solid meme card though!

    For glory, honor, and gold!

    Its just a fun card. Apparently mage is the only class that is mandatorily required to be designed like a slot machine, which only occasionally becomes cancerous to play against.

    I honestly have fun against players that run those decks. Maybe because I also like playing that and I respect them.

    Spell mage, aka no minion, will be playing this, it's very random, but I like it anyway

    Full spell mage maybe?  You lose the syngery cards like Apexis Blast, but effectively upgrading every card in your deck sounds spicy enough.

    Thanks, I just found the gameplay video, and it did create Paladin cards.

    It's not just a "fun" card, though. Almost any high-cost card can be good when it costs 3 less.

    It's actually not all that random, especially at the high end.

    I think Regis Killbin was annoyed about this card (given his tone and the title of his video), but he also noted that he hadn't really studied the Mage spell list to see how things might pan out.

    Turns out, you will always get Blizzard from your 3-costs and always get Flamestrike from your 4-costs (unless they release more 6- and 7-cost spells this expansion). Your 5-costs will become one of two possible spells (and it really doesn't matter too much which one you get), there are no 9-cost spells, so Blizzard won't change, and there are only two 10-costs -- Pyroblast and Puzzle Box. So really the only nail-biter is the last one.

    If you're running Flamestrike in a deck with Deck of Lunacy, you're probably the kind of person who was already jamming Puzzle Box into every Mage deck anyway, which is why I think the overall effect of this card on the meta will not be all that random.

    It doesn't specify "Mage spells" though like other Mage cards that only generate Mage spells.

    So I'm pretty sure you can get spells from other classes from this.

    Random spells is worse than random mage spells.

    That card is extremly random to be really competitive, but can see play on some hard spells decks, Who knows?

    By The Holy Light!

    Meme fodder, I can't see this being consistent enough to see much competitive play. But it sure does counter Bomb Warrior.

    I wonder which mana slot has the best spell pool? I do think this could see competitive play, depending on how narrow the pools are and whether Bombs exist.

    Better call Thrall!

    Pretty strong but inconsistent card for casino mage.

    Unfortunately for me, I hate that archetype.
