    I’m pretty sure this card puts the minion in play, but what if it adds it to your hand?
    Would be used in a completely different deck.
    However, it should summon the minion, meaning you might be able to get some Archmage OPness going, or even a true no setup OTK.
    Apprentice, Apprentice, Molten, Molten, this pulling Archmage, FIREBALLS
    5/10 however, Exodia Mage never does that well

    Google “Pure Cold”. Blizzard cutbacks? Lel

    I rate this card very high, I’m still not too sure how the mechanic works. If it simply a cast and it will automatically mimic the least cost minion in hand, copy and activate all it’s battlecry/effect/deathrattle, it have insane value in tempo mage. You can either reserve to cast during turn3 if your hand still have other low cost minion such like mana wyrm or arcanologist, then cast it next turn or later when you know you can have insane value from it like arcane giant, water ele, etc. Or you can simply cast it by turn3 for an 8/8 arcane giant/ alex!

    Yes, it will reveal your hand but who cares for tempo mage minion revealing? low cost high value minion in tempo will have insane value and impact on the board. I give 8/10 to this card.

      Well what if you use it exodia mage? the sorcerer’s apprentice is cheaper that way, although you do dump 3 mana into at first.

    This card is rated low but it will be highly used in my opinion. I am even close to saying that there will be new decks built with this.

    play all spells mage and get a 3 cost antonidas? i mean i also dont really understand if this is ‘summon’ a copy or add a copy to your hand and one of those is easily busted mage and the other is just hot garbage. I dont want it to be either of those.

      I have been informed that blizzard does not know how to write words on cards with ANY degree of clarity. Add a copy to your hand. HOW HARD IS IT TO SAY ADD A COPY TO YOUR HAND. IF YOU CAN’T WRITE THAT ON THE CARD DON’T MAKE THE CARD.

    While this will inevitably find its way into Exodia decks, I might give it a whirl on a Kazakus, just to see if it’s any good there.

    • wHATEVER

      Exactly! I was looking for cards that could make Kazakus more relavant again and this is definetly one 🙂

    how does this work? does it play it or add a copy to your hand? it should say more such as summon or add.

    • Moltar
      August 1, 2017 at 2:41 pm

      It copies it and puts it in your hand.

        And what if I have 2 minions that have the same mana cost?

        • Moltar
          August 1, 2017 at 4:02 pm

          RNG? Like other similar cases in this game.

            I think it would be by alphabetical order. Like if you cast Call of the wild but don’t have enough place, it will always be Huffer, Leokk and then Misha. Then again, with that little text and stuff. Hard to be 100%

    Even for those not running exodia this willmake the arcane giant package stronger for mages…

      Giants mage died in the early 2016 and this card won’t bring it back.

        U are wrong there is still quest giant OTK wich is doing ok

          That’s not what giants mage is 🙂

      • Xix

        Their is a secret mage version wich runs arcane giants in it. And it’s tier 1 – tier 2

    What do you mean by Exodia?

    • Kenchilada
      August 1, 2017 at 2:30 pm

      It’s an OTK that cannot be interacted with (unless your opponent gets a lucky dirty rat or something) For mage, they use the quest reward to do this:
      Sorcerer’s Apprentice
      Sorceror’s Apprentice
      Molten Reflection
      Molten Reflection
      Time Warp (end turn)
      Archmage Antonidas
      This gives you infinite 0 mana fireballs

    • Muzek

      exodia mage package is archmage antonidas and 4 sorcerer’s apprentices. this allows you to have infinite damage and in many cases is an automatic win (it comes from the name of 5 cards from yugioh, if you had all 5 pieces of exodia in your hand you automatically win the game)

    • Moltar
      August 1, 2017 at 2:40 pm

      Exodia is a term that comes from yu gi oh, it was a set of cards that automatically won you the game when in your hand simultaneously.

    • Atioras
      August 1, 2017 at 2:43 pm

      Exodia refers to the One Turn Kill (Really two turn) quest mage deck, similar to the Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards Exodia the Forbidden One, where by holding the 5 pieces of Exodia, (2 arms, 2 legs, the head) you automatically win the game. If you aren’t aware of Yu-Gi-Oh! Rules, you can have at most 6 cards in your hand, or you have to discard them, which is why the combo is so difficult to pull off, because you cannot play them, you need to hold them.

      Exodia Quest Mage is either
      Giants (Arcane Giant and Molten Giant) utilizing the free Arcane Giants with Ice Blocked lethal to have free Molten Giants, giving you 4 8/8 meaning as long as they have no more than 2 armor, you win with giants alone.
      (Play free/cheap giants, play quest, next turn use burn spells and attack face with giants for up to 45 damage with 4 giants, 2 fireballs, and hero power)


      Antonidas Quest which revolves around Sorcerers apprentice and Archmage Antonidas.
      Which is pretty much after (usually) completing the quest,
      Sorcerer’s apprentice x2, Molten reflection them, play quest, end turn, play antonidas, play a spell, throw infinite fireballs.

      Thanks for the reply.
      However IMO HS it self or WOW universe are reach enough to not borrow the terms from something bad is SUSHI-O.
      Lazy nerdiness or nerdish laziness.

        Yu gi oh was for many people the first true interaction with tcgs and will remain the easiest way to explain what kind you are playing to strangers.
        Nothing wrong with borrowing a term from the (culturally) largest tcg (apart from maybe pokemon which nobody actually played)

      • CypherC
        August 1, 2017 at 5:03 pm

        Is not lazy, is a smart name but you’d have to know what exodia is in the first place to understand.

    I don’t understand how this card works. Like does it play the copy it copies or just add it to your hand? (I’m hoping the first one since otherwise it would suck, but the card text is very unclear)

    • DatMageDoe
      August 1, 2017 at 6:14 pm

      It takes the lowest cost card in your hand (chosen randomly if there is a tie), and adds a copy of it to your hand. Or, rephrasing it, “Add a copy of the lowest cost minion (at random if a tie) in your hand, to your hand.

    Oh great another exodia combo piece…

  14. Killyridols
    August 1, 2017 at 2:05 pm

    Yeah I guess a new tool for Exodia. If you take the Tony fireball machine route. Seems like the giants build is just better though. And that deck needs more spell adding cards than anything else.

  15. Killyridols
    August 1, 2017 at 2:03 pm

    I don’t fell like there is a current Mage deck that would like to play this on turn three.

    • Syrea
      August 1, 2017 at 2:05 pm

      It’s quite obvious this isn’t a turn 3 play
