    Early game this doesn’t quite do enough.
    Late game it is too easy to remove.
    3/10

    hm… i could see this seeing SOME play, but not a whole lot. for 2 mana, i would have liked to see the effect stick around, but as it is, that is a single target freeze as long as you have it. 3 mana can be hard-ish to remove depending on your class, and the ones that wouldn’t be able to deal with it are weak to freeze anyway. definitely thing this should have been like the murloc version for paladin, but really that didnt do anything on its own, it had to combo with other things. if this did that, especially if you dropped it right after lich queen jaina, that would be nightmarish to deal with, a 1 mana ping freeze that can spawn elementals, fun.

    Meh. If it was a Battlecry ability like the murloc paladin 1 drop then it would be great. But reads like the effect only lasts while it’s in play, which means you may never see the effect since at 3 health it’s not too hard to kill. Not nearly strong enough to be a 2 drop in a mage deck. If it was a 1 drop then I’d have considered it.

    Shouldn’t it be – Your hero power also FREEZES the target – ? I mean, isn’t it a grammatical error?

    Not strong at all.

    Especially compared to mage’s current 2 drops, arguably the best in the game: Arcanologist, Frostbolt, Glyph, Valet.

    Might not even be strong enough for elemental mage if that becomes a thing.

    4.4/5? Bro

      The only thing i disagree with what you said is valet. its not that great if you blank on secrets it rots in your hand and could be the difference between winning and losing. its def a 3/5 because if the meta slows down controlling the board every turn is great snowball and can combo with doomsayer in a reno style deck. who knows its one of those cards that needs more to benefit from playing it.

      Valet is a good comparison since neither card is a 2 drop that you are slamming on curve.

        yeah but if you don’t have a secret then its not very good its just a 2/3, and you need to have ice block. I am talking strait value then this card might be better. It has the elemental tag which synergizes in a midrange/control deck and stalls the board for tempo. This only requires you to have a hero power which is always and can be used on turn 4. Stabilizing and stopping a Arcanite Reaper almost permanently is much better then deal three. This card will be better depending on the meta like i mentioned before. if it stays a fast meta this card can be very good anti aggro card. Also with almost every deck playing Eater of secrets i can see this out doing Valet in any deck that only wants to play a few secrets. And with the new hunter legendary i can see every deck putting in eater of secrets because on curve if you opponent goes off with the legendary and cloaked huntress you basically win the game.

          Yea, I see potential as a later game play once you stabilize. I’m just saying it doesn’t overlap with 2-drops at all really.

    U can consider this card as a 4 Mana 1/3, deal 1dmg and freeze the target. Seems underwhelming. Reminds u on tgt expansion. Inspire sucked.

        Dunno. People are obsessed with super value and cute effects, forgetting that most minions don’t live more than 1 turn and tempo is important. Look at some other card ratings, it’s bonkers.

    Pretty bad I would say. Mage has insane 2 drops compared to this, it will never take arcanologist’s or glyph’s spot.

    If Hunter or Warlock gets it, would it still freeze your opponent/yourself?

          I think hunter would yes… and warlock as well because the hero power is targeting you/opponent for the damage, it’s not you doing the targeting it’s the hero power. That is how I understand it.

            How is the interaction of Hunter /Warlock Hero Power wird Noggenfogger? Is the Hunter dealing damage randomly or does it hit your opponents face everytime? I think this card could probably show the Same reaction (?)

            I have no idea… I want to say they don’t change otherwise Warlock could run mayor and deal random two damage to things.

            Consistency in hs is an issue, but im positive that u don’t ‘target’ with warlock or hunter hero power, hence it won’t freeze since ‘targeting’ sth has a meaning in this game, like with mayor Noggenfogger, whose effect is restricted to targeting cards. Unless they change all of that, I am correct here.

            Hunter and warlock’s hero power dont target, so it wont work with them, noggenfogger don’t work with them aleast, so I cant see why they should change it with this, well until you get your hunter minion that lets you target with your hero power, but that still only works for hunters not warlocks

    Great card with a strong effect and the elemental tag. The thing I don’t understand is why everybody (including Blizzard itself) complaint about the freeze mechanic and then we always have new freeze cards.

    I know FREEZE is a keyword and thus is bold and has text explaining it when you hover over the card… but shouldn’t it still have an “s”? Reading this card out loud just feels wrong.

    It also has to change the animation to an icebolt. Otherwise you freeze the enemy with fire.
