    Meh.
    Waste 2 slots to gain a bit of armour?

    No mage deck atm needs it.
    Maybe worth thinking of it if ice block really goes to the hall of fame…..

      The flaw in your logic is, โ€˜right nowโ€™, as if every deck will be the same once this expansion drops.

      Turn 8 this card and Flamelands Portal, not good enough? Or the new spellcard that casts random spells when drawn -consistantly gaining 5 armor? Not good enough? With the new Mage legendary, which synnergizes with expensive spells – not good enough?

      control/highlander/elemental mage will love this card simply because there isnt a lot of ways to heal. they only have ice barrier,frost lich jaina and alex. I am very sure u play tempo mage so u wont need it

    tier 3 card gets everyone exited.
    1 drop that is absolute garbage up to turn 8.

    Can’t wait for elemental mage to finally be a thing!
    This’ll be a core card for any mage deck really.
    5 stars.

    The latest on the game, the better this card can get. I bealieve, starting from turn 8, this can be a broken 1-drop. But is a okay 1-drop at the early game

    I think this card is some tool to mage to survive after ice block going to hall of fame

        Agreed, but it is still not the same, mage is going to need some sweet cards.

    This could be a lot of fun in wild grinder mage decks that use duplicate and echoes of medivh.

      Except fireball allways needs a target to be able to cast. Once iceblock proc’s you and the board is clear, nothing to gain. Allso if you make fireball cost 0 my guess is you gain 0 armor for each cast.

        It worked that way in the “summon a minion with the same cost of the spell you cast” tavern brawl.
        so I expect it to be similar

    Even though I never play as mage, this is a nice card!
    The design of the minion looks like a demon

    Looks like im another mage player fan boy but the impact on this card is quite potent. Basically, any burn spell also becomes essentially life gain for mage, unaffected by Alex… Im not gonna buy too much into this set but ill surely craft some of the better cards, this being one of them. ๐Ÿ™‚ Go Blizzard.

        What are these? Voidwalkers? If so why do they look so much cooler here (and in the Kazakus potion)

    Not sure I would run it in a deck, but a great 1-drop draft for arena.

      Or freeze/quest mage, like mage doesn’t already have enough tools to survive/gain random spells/freeze/burn. I forsee a Mage meta for a time and then some mage nerfs :p
