Cool card, looking forward to someone comboing it with a charge minion.
Before anyone gets ideas, no this will never ever make Lightspawn meta.
Its a nice discover card or you'd get this from Wandmaker with a smile. But as a clear option it's not necessarily the best thing in the world. For one thing, this card also 'damages' your own minions, so its not likely to see play in aggro shadow priest, and secondly, this thing needs a target, so if you're running control you need something down, or otherwise you'd end up building a big healthy minion on board for your opponent that you might not be able to kill.
The best thing about this card is that its a shadow spell that costs 1. So for any reason you'd want to build a shadow control OTK priest, this card might make it in, as sort of ammo for Psyfiend
Dapper, you really need to chillax on the whole negativity thing. "BeFoRe AnYoNe GeTs IdEaS, nO tHiS wIlL nEvEr EvEr MaKe LiGhTsPaWn MeTa"
I mean seriously, who pissed in your cheerios this morning? The whole point of reveal seasons before expansions is to make previously unused combos/cards/archetypes viable (usually). It's a theorycrafting phase. It's an exploration phase. It's a period of innovation, collaboration, and thinking outside the box.
And here you are shitting on a card because "ThIs WoNt EvEr Be MeTa!"
Lol, Im more curious what's gotten into you
Clearly my comments are more important than I ever gave it credit for. Because usually if someone disagrees with my opinion, they'd just dump downvotes on me. But to deserve a critique on my critique - that's something else.
Look, its just my opinion. And Im fairly sure Im not important enough to sway even 1% of the population of this website. Sometimes, someone grants me the pleasure of having an argument on the subject matter, which I fully appreciate. But for those who are aggravated by my written words, they may scroll past it fairly easily - or grant me a downvote, whatever tugs their boat.
Besides, Ive been in OoC for some time. It should be fairly obvious what to expect from my posts. Sometimes I try to crack a few jokes, but I dont think anyone expects sunshine and flowers from me.
Nothing, just I think reveal season should be met (usually) with an air of excitement. It's kind of a downer to have people crapping on cards during the theorycrafting phase of an expansion.
I mean, I think you're reading too much into this. The point of sites like OOC is to create a community that discusses things and has fun with whatever the focus of that community is. I like to think that here, as opposed to reddit, if people are "just dumping downvotes" they are in the wrong community. There are times I may not agree with people, doesn't mean I hate that person, just that I don't agree with their particular opinion at that time. As such when I feel particularly strong about something I try to verbalize it, as opposed to internalizing it. (Unless it's going to create flamebait, or escalate out of control, or is a controversial subject matter.)
Eh I don't keep track of people's personality types that closely beyond my close friends. Don't take that as dismissive, but I don't really care whether you are stormclouds and brooding, or sunshine and flowers. The point of discussions shouldn't necessarily be "to sway" someone but to just discuss something for the sake of discussing it. I'd rather people take the time formulate specific strong opinions on things occasionally, then post all the time (aka the tiktok/instagram method) in the hopes that by just spamming/posting all the time they "make a presence" and become liked. (for the same reason that I detest Nifty in the Runeterra part of the OOC forums because he spams the boards every day with a new thread in an obnoxious "I know better than you" tone.)
Tring to think of situations where you'd use this on an enemy. Maybe when they have a small minion and a bunch of big ones, and you go for a Shadow Word: Ruin? Still, really cool card.
Online station redemption arc
The card's kinda decent I guess? it's like a glorified Whirlwind. If token decks are popular, I think this card will see play. The shadow tag does help though.
I would never have guessed the site would be online. It was slow, but it managed to stay afloat which was impressive to see. In the years of doing card reveals and them getting so many of them, I've never been able to post one of their reveals within 5 minutes.
What a time to be alive!
I'd say it's a bit better than that, since you get to buff up one of your minions, and it also removes damage.
