Astral Rift Card Review
In general, getting 2 cards for 2 mana is a very powerful effect. But you really, really want those cards to be at least playable. But in this case, you can’t. Random minion means that you can get absolutely anything. And if you look at the list of minions, you will notice that only a portion of them actually sees play, and only a portion of that portion would be good in the deck you play it in. So there is a significant chance that you will end up with 2 bad minions, or a bad and a mediocre minion. To get two good minions, you would need to be incredibly lucky. There’s no way that it’s worth 1 mana discount over Arcane Intellect, which always gets you 2 good cards (because you put them into your deck).
Now, this might be okay to get from a random source, like if you’re looking for more value, see this in Primordial Glyph, you can pick it. But that’s basically it. You don’t want ot put it into your deck. The only situation in which this might be good is if you follow it up with Leyline Manipulator and discount those two minions by 2. But same thing can be said about lots of other cards, and I don’t see them being played.
