    now this is... very scary to be honest thinking of the huge burst potential that this has in aggro lists.

    Depending of the list this has the potential to replace Decimate

    A good addition to reputation decks, pair this with Ruin Runner and you got yourself a powerful finisher.

    Elixir of Wrath exists

    you are paying 4 times the mana for +2 attack on a card that rarely sees play in the same region.. why?

    Seems like a card that is missing reputation: costs 1 or something..

    Card efficiency is as important as cost efficientcy in aggro since you usually don't run any extra draw effects. 

    Elixir of Wrath might be way more cost efficient yet it is kinda the same case as it is with Decimate and Mystic Shot: Decimate is worse in the cost/effect ratio but it is the finisher of choice for aggro decks because it is more card efficient

    I see, but Mystic Shot is a stample card and Elixir of Wrath is rarely played (As far as I know).

    Also their ratios are much worse Decimate to Mystic Shot is 2* in damage to nexus, and 2.5* in cost

    while this card is *4 in cost and *1.66 in potential, besides Decimate being harder to counter while attack buffs are easier.

    I see your point but I think the power level of this card is much worse.

    An important thing to not is that this is a counter to Frostbite for Reputation decks. Instant 5 attack from 0, to guarantee the trigger.

    I'll boop you

    I see this card very positive and I think it has its place as 1x or 2x.
    Besides an "overwhelming burst" option that may suprise or finishes off enemys, there are a few things in my mind:

    - Arrel the Tracker
    - Riven +10
    - Sivir/LeBlanc
    - Flurry of Fistst
    - Ghost/Elusive
    - Syncopation

    And as a counter to Frostbite, and Spiders/-Attack such as Quicksand or Scrying Sands.

    were people's faces as unfinished as their minds."
