I can't really evaluate this.
The effect is pretty damn insane if you hit even just 2 minions, but it's gonna be hard to get off.
5-mana is also quite a heavy cost if you don't have a 0--mana proc at hand.
Fungalmancer this is not.
Probably pretty great in Arena though
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
all depends on how easy it is to activate frenzy. goes great for warrior lets see what the others get
Horrible stats, will need an activator directly or it will probably be killed without activating the effect (most 5 drop have 5 attacks and some 4 drop too). Also need other minions on the board so if the opponent trade the turn before it is nearly useless. Giving +2+2 is not that good in late game. I think this is a bad card who wont see plays.
This one was probably tricky to balance. You need 5 mana + something else to trigger the effect on the same turn, but the payoff is really good. Could it find its way into Token/Zoo decks?
Great arena card.In constructed we need to see more cards that can damage minions .Maybe for zoo warlock?warrior tempo?or tempo deck with the broom?
As long as broom exists, frenzy is looking king of overpowered. This is fungalmancer 2.0 if you can hit frenzy. This is what swarm based boards needed to close the game
Looks great in arena and dude paladin
I do not think this will see much play
Instant pick in Arena
English is not my native language, so please excuse occasional mistakes
IDK about this one, I wouldn´t play it personally.
Seems a little high costed to me, since it's not an immediate effect.
But time will tell.
Papa Nurgle wants to share his gifts.
Wide board buffs will always at some point be relevant, so I'm not counting this one out yet. Its slow at 5 + a trigger. But the core set has been geared towards tempo so the game is likely slow enough that this card can actually work.
Expect to see some unconventional ways of triggering the frenzy of this card. Maybe rogue, because its the only class that currently has a 0 mana activator in backstab.
if you can drop this on a full board the game is basically over
I can see a Token Warrior, with this plus that 0-mana damage spell.
I can imagine a world where Priest finds a way to use this. Is that world just Arena? Possibly.
can be a better fungalmancer or a simple 5 mana 3/5, probably will see experimentation but I dont think this will be really good
Don't underrestimate this card. It's easy to combo with cards like guardian augmerchant
hard to activate seems like a good arena card
The first set of the year is always filled with potentially good cards. This is one of them, but it's probably too high costed.
