    @FrighteningTorus: Ah yes, pass me that "Pixie Dust." I honestly really enjoy the flavor on Back Alley Brightwing (and it fits Gadgetzan so well!), though it's not something that Blizz would ever publish. The mechanics support the theme, and the balance is good as well. The main thing I'd want to see changed is the art on Pixie Dust, because it doesn't feel like Hearthstone art, and- not to say one decision is better than another, but- it's also worth considering whether you want to use the original BW statline. What sorts of decks do you envision making use of this?

    Hey y'all, just migrated here after seeing that hearthpwn no longer has comps, after a year or so off Hearthstone- good to see y'all are still at it!

     

    @Demonxz95: I like your new version of Nefarious a lot. At first it seemed overpowered, but there's no consistent way to combo off the effect, so now I can appreciate it as a much needed value-to-tempo finisher for thief Rogue. Al'ar is fine, but not as interesting, and quite possibly too powerful, considering how common freeze effects are.

    @grumpymonk: Maiev has my vote, though it's worth noting that there's a fine mechanical line to walk. In Hearthstone, when a Stealth minion attacks, the Stealth breaks before it dies- if this weren't the case, Maiev would allow for infinite trading, which is surely not your intent. If you go for Maiev, it'd be worth making note of this, since otherwise some people may misjudge the card. Considering its niche use, I don't think it would be problematic to increase her health to ensure that the card works against AoE rather than dying alongside.

    @Xarkkal: I agree with Demon, the card would be very polarizing by matchup. I like the callback to Blackrock though: it's got some nostalgia to it.

    @Feuerrabe: I adore the flavor on Leeeeeeeroy, but- while I recognize that Leeroy is a Paladin- this Leeroy doesn't feel any more Paladin-y than the original, ya feel? On the other side of design, the balance is solid, and it would probably work even with a buff.

     

    My current ideas:

    Any feedback is helpful, but especially on these three criteria: Would it be fun to play with or against? Is it balanced? And does it stand out, flavorwise or mechanically?

    Came back to Hearthstone after more than a year of not touching the game: welcomed with about 7k dust from Hall of Fame rotations, a HIghlander mage deck, and some two dozen free packs. Including Galakrond, 12 legendaries in a single day... Feelin' pretty good!
