    The only thought that came to mind when is saw this card is how sad its going to be if you open it. Why ever play this over Onyxia unless you really need token generators but this still seems so bad. 

    What if you play a deck that wants 2x Onyxia, Violet Wurm can be silenced/sapped.

    So strong.  A must-include for wide board strats and a decent top-deck and pushy Aggro. 

    Demands an immediate answer and when dropped after a few waves of zoo/Aggro minions your opponent will need to have a lot of answers to stay above water.

    Great mechanic and flavor that suits the lower-tier Paladin archetypes of late - but with big Noz incoming things may change quick.

    So this card is absolutely broken, it advantages all archetypes both in the early and late game. 

    Most likely a clutch late-game play for a Control deck stealing the likes of Zuljin or Boom.

    My money is on a Nomi deck.  You can already beat a lot of midrange if you get crazy opening hand with Myra's + Chef.

    A cycle oriented build with some early board control cards, add new draw 3 for 3.

    Hate that this is our new game mode. 

    We needed something new badly and lo behold blizz desperately trying to stay relevant by copying the auto battlers that have more or less gone out of fashion already. 

    Imagine we got pac man added as a game mode would you be happy?

    Why didn't they release a multiplayer adventure.

    It's an old card that sees play when other decks skip their early turns.  Hurts Druid/Priest most

    Do the mana crystals come full or empty? I would expect it to be empty, which means yes you just dropped an 8/8 but your opponent is the first one to get access to a full ten mana. On the other hand if the crystals come in full this is broken.

    if it works like Mojomaster Zihi then you will gain full mana crystals, but any mana you have already spent this turn will stay empty. So playing this guy at 4 mana will leave you with 6 mana open.

    This is just an educated guess, so don't quote me on this.

    You never know with hearthstone until you get to test it because it's not the most consistent game in the world. Just judging by balance though, I would be shocked if this card left you with 6 mana to spend after coming down as a 4 mana 8/8. That would completely negate the 'cost' of giving the opponent the first turn with ten mana to spare: assuming you have any 6 mana plays you're effectively putting 14 mana worth of stats on the board, not to mention the fact that your opponent probably didn't build their deck or mulligan for spending 10 mana on turn 4.

    I think it's pretty safe to assume you're left with empty mana crystals if you play this on turn four, or if not, that it'll work that way after the inevitable nerf.

     

    I completely agree there's no way you gain the crystals you just set them to 10.

    They did Maly bad here, the card's fairly good however - mostly if the dragons are kind to Mage

    The deck should be built less around Flamewaker - a regular Burn/Tempo/Tempo mage with added Flamewaker is closer to what will settle imo.

    The deck is very weak to Aggro and making your opponent draw 2 for free is a death sentence. You've lost that game if they had 1 drop.

    Flamewaker is worth building around but due to what we have in terms of support we're better off simply adding him to our Cyclone Mage list or Highlander lists - where he fills the role of allowing you to draw him at least  if other core cards (Mountain Giant, Mana Cyclone, Zephrys) are at the bottom of your deck.

    The 1/3 stat line was originally for the Priest to have something to challenge aggro is my impression.

    Further extending that to Warrior is questionable, as Warrior is already supposed to beat aggro - and it should lose to Priest. 

    No idea why Mage had Manawyrm, guessing its to mirror Magic's Mono Blue Tempo. 

    Here's the confusion tho, Manawyrm was only used for Aggro Mage.  Why is it nerfed so heavily while Cleric and Rover continue in Standard? They slot in automatically in their archetypes with no restriction.

    I think Manawyrm should be reverted and Eternium Rover nerfed.  The stats of 1/3 aren't the problem, it's the upside effect of these cards being worth 2 mana that breaks it.
