    As core as it gets for the mechanic and the class I guess.

    Solid Core Card and with the Nature Spell Tag , there could be some Spell Damage Shenanigans with Bru'kan etc.

    Solid removal and great burst for spell-damage shaman. Glad to see it in the core set.

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    Just want to share this story: way back in the early days (like, the 90's, when there were only physical cards), my brothers and I got started with Magic the Gathering. One of my brothers used to only build red decks and start every match if possible by lightning bolting the opponent's face. We all thought it was such a great opening move, dealing 3 damage before the game was even underway! Of course, I also remember building mostly green decks myself and always running Force of Nature (so cool, an 8/8 with Trample!). We had a lot to learn back then ...

    Considering how high you can actually push this damage in a single turn's worth of mana (using Bru'kan and Novice Zapper), I will be surprised if they print any other Nature spells that can go face. Or if they do, the new ones would have to be fairly expensive.

    (It gets even crazier if you can time it right with a Phoenix or two.)

    1 mana deal 3 to face has seen play every once in a while

    Are you guys really rating this card like it's new? you know it's been in the game since classic, I realize there was a rework but it's not a new card the only change is the spell synergy here you know..
