    Hi all,

    I’m not very good at Shaman class, I mostly play Priest, Hunter, Paladin and Druid.
    I only play Standard (it allows me to get the dust necessary when new expansions come out. All my only-wild cards go to dust ASAP.
    I encountered this card by ‘taking’ a seemingly very good standard pro deck (around +25 rating, i thought it could be good).
    I played Bolner Hammerbeak
    + Brilliant Macaw + Lor’themar Terron
    Not sure if it’s the exact sequence. But i got all my minions with like x4 or x8 attack and def. Just crazy.
    I still am not sure of the mechanic of the card.
    Have I used it first on turn X and then Brilliant Macaw + Lor’themar Terron on turn X+1 ?
    Is it the way it’s suppose to work ?

    Thanks in advance for helping a very old man in his quest to joy 😉
    I am from a generation that discovered (!) the ZX-81, Atari, first Apple, and so on. So, I’m becoming a bit slow in understanding some of thos mechanic.

    Have a great day from the land of rain and… Jacques Brel (and waffles, if you like)

    Now Imagine this in a Galakrond Battlecry Shaman. Then watch your opponent quit

    BUT GUYs….. just watch trumps’s video and he mention that there is an infinite combo here
    1 Play corrupted medic & dunktank beforehand
    2 Combo turn = yasheraj + lightning bloom + bolner,
    3 Play dunktank on face, play medic (trigger bolner)
    4 Then play medic on your medic, play dunktank face
    Repeat step 4 infinitely

    Bolner -> mailbox dancer -> pen flinger -> coin -> pen flinger -> coin -> pen flinger -> coin -> pen flinger -> coin -> pen flinger -> coin -> pen flinger -> coin -> pen flinger -> coin -> pen flinger -> coin -> pen flinger -> coin -> pen flinger -> coin -> pen flinger -> coin -> pen flinger -> coin -> pen flinger, repeat

      This is really scary for standard, as it’s a really cheap board clear (wild has flurgl+toxfin). If pen flinger could have gone face, this would be even worse than the hysteria combo

      I assume that battlecry are targeted at random so, there will be a time where pen flinger will hit bolner & killing it

        we’re repeating the mailbox dancer, not the pen flinger. everytime you play a pen flinger, bolner gives you a coin, meaning you can cast it and play pen flinger again, giving another coin, causing an infinite cycle.

    Why was I the only one who found the effect weak?? This minion is the evolution of “Murmuring Elemental” but only one minion with Battlecry will be activated per turn. I found the weak effect to be legendary! (Rating: 3 out of 5)

    • PPAP

      Almost, it will activate the effect of the first battlecry every time, so it can activate multiple times per turn

        For those who only play in wild mode, I don’t see an advantage in this trash card! It will only last one turn, who is the game designer for the shaman class? Very incompetent!!

          > For those who only play in wild mode
          Bold of you to assume Blizzard cares about wild.

            And you who don’t even understand what is written on the card! I do not know what’s worse?! Wild Mode >>> Standard Mode!

    Maybe this is obvious, but with enough mana, you can repeat ‘the first’ battlecry X times, right?

    So with let’s say 7 mana, you play him, Promordial Dungeoneer (draw 4), Cagematch Custodian (draw 2 and a weapon)!?

    • Generalflagada
      July 22, 2021 at 10:39 am

      Yes it should work like that
      Si 6 card from bolner + dungeoneer + (in this case) weapon from custodian

      And if by miracle bolner survive another turn his effect is still ok since it should be an aura so you can do other shenanigans

    Mmh si basically
    Play this t2
    T3 play the 3 mana draw nature spell & elemental
    => you draw 4 card
    Darn that’s good

      I didn’t even think of it working that way… that’s pretty sweet.

        How did you think it worked, then? 😉

          By the wording it doesn’t seem obvious that you double the first minions battlecry when you play it. I would have assumed you play a battlecry it triggers once and then every other battlecry after that triggers it again. Makes it much better this way of course

          • Generalflagada
            July 22, 2021 at 7:43 am

            True that the wording look confusing, just hope that BC effect will trigger twice, otherwise bolner hammerthingy is just a mediocre late game combo card

            lol just thought of a combo;
            Bolner + lifedrinker + 2 kindling elemental + 2 glacial elemental + 1 small elemental 1/2
            Eleven mana for 18 dmg lifesteal

            • Generalflagada
              July 22, 2021 at 7:53 am

              Wait I think you can put elven archer instead of either elemental for 2 extra dmg
              & I forgot 1 battlecry in my calculation
              Because it’s 12 mana (kindling elemental are technically 0mana)
              So it’s 25 dmg?

                Hombre, ¿es difícil usar el traductor de Google para entender inglés? La activación del grito de batalla es para un solo esbirro por turno y solo para el primer esbirro con el grito de batalla. ¿Entendiste en tu idioma?

                    “It fools me that I like it!” How can you not understand the effect of the card in your language?

                  • Cassio
                    July 22, 2021 at 10:18 am

                    Is it hard to understand your native language?? Did you understand that this minion only activates ONE battlecry effect of the first minion in the current turn, and the others won’t activate twice?? You’re not American, I laugh at you!!

          Oh no, I can absolutely see that that’s how it will work, I just didn’t quite think of that interaction.

    So for Otk you’ll be looking at toxicologist stacking or talent arcanist right because damage battlecrys will just hit a random target?

    I think see this being a rather obnoxious way to deal with your opponent, for a cost that you need to play Battlecry Shaman, basically. I would assume that the Battlecries are at random, but since a lot of your minions are about generating or drawing, or maybe even some extra token for Shaman, that I think this is a Universally good Shaman Card. This makes the cut really well for what Shaman is struggling against the most, which is extra ammunition. I’m going to give this 5 stars, I think this is a really cool card to have for Shaman.
