    Ridiculously powerful board clear for such a few mana. Only concer remains in that dragon shaman was never played archetype and support for it is very weak.

    a good removal for 3 mana, holding a dragon it's not dificult with all the dragons being added to the game

    Bonkers spell for Dragon Shaman decks.  3 mana it's super cheap for clearing the board.

    Even as base line it is Shadow Bolt so solid enough, with dragon it is just very good. It is not meta defining or anything, but very solid card nonetheless.

    Wow this card is amazing. However, you need dragon shaman to work for this card so if that deck is viable then this card will be amazing but otherwise, not too good

    A pretty nice card in standard if dragon shaman becomes a thing. In wild, however, despite it being pretty good for early game removal, it may be difficult to fit into highlander shaman since it doesn't fit into even shaman.

    Is an arguably better Lightning Storm. And hey, Shaman did play a bit of Dragons himself, with the

    3 mana for 12 damage split on 3 minions? And no overload? Just broken...

    The dragon requirement may be tougher for shammans to fulfill, but still have to wait untill the reaveals are over.

    Almost an instant replacement for lightning storm, with the main issue being that you need a dragon to activate the cleave effect. On its own its already a decent 4 mana deal 4 damage. You will put dragons in your deck just to play this, not the other way around.

    Wonder what the effect is with Zentimo. Is it just flamestrike like that?

    Strong as hell, as most already mentioned, this can pretty easilty be 3 mana Flamestrike.

    Seems absolutely insane.

    A control Shaman with a couple powerful dragons with battlecry such as Twilight Drake can already make this card work, and it is in most cases a Flamestrike that can be played on turn 3.

    If Shaman gets a bunch of well-statted dragons then a midrange board focused deck would definitely run this card.

    Holy moly this seems insane.  Dragons typically have battlecries, so I'm pretty sure a Dragon Quest Shaman will emerge somwhere and will 100% use this card to help secure a good early/mid-game.

    a potentially more powerful lightning storm if a dragon's in your hands.

    WITH no overload.

    that's pretty good. but we gotta see what dragon's Shaman gets this expac

    Value-town!  What dragons would Shaman include in order to run this though?  Would be a nasty board clear if there are enough viable dragon cards to fit in a Shaman build.
