    Question - does Manathirst count as a Battlecry? For instance, could Shaman double Crystal Broker's effect?

      Nope: Manathirst can be seen as Combo - here's a tweet from Celestalon that explains it.

      Quote From Celestalon

      Manathirst can just be thought of like Combo. It's an optional additional effect that happens when played, unless otherwise stated. Brann doesn't normally affect Combo, but a Brann'd Perdition's Blade would do 2 twice.

        Thanks, Avalon! By that logic, I suppose Astalor Bloodsworn's Manathirst effect could happen twice? Or would it only happen on cards like Sunfury Clergy, with the 'instead' qualifier?

          If I get that right, you'd get double Battlecry and single Manathirst.

          Unless the Manathirst changes the Battlecry, they are separate effects.

          Astalor would happen only once as its attached to a different effect, it would add itself twice to your hand, though.

          So you'd be correct on the instead part, since Sunfury Clergy changes its battlecry from heal 3 to 6 with manathirst active.

      In their own sets technically: Path of Arthas and Core. As the expansion packs for Lich King will only contain 10 DK cards total.
