Brainstormer Card Review

Well, the card would be interesting if it started at 2 health. At 1 health, it just seems too hard to make it work. You need to have 3 spells in your hand for it to be a vanilla 3/4, with a downside of being vulnerable to Silence. You need to get it to AT LEAST 3/5 for it to be worth (given the Silence downside), but realistically it would be great only past that – at 3/6 and bigger. This way you get a 4-drop’s stats for 3 mana, which is great. So you need 3 spells in your hand for it to hit vanilla stats, 4 to be okay and 5 to be good.

It will never be big when played on the curve, even in the most spell-heavy decks. It might be pretty big later in the game, in something like Big Spell Mage for example, but a 3/6 for 3 would be strong if you could drop it on T3. It’s not really that strong later in the game.

Like I’ve said, if it started at 2 health, it would be easier to make it work. But in the current state, it’s pretty bad. Maybe if you build a really spell-heavy deck with lots of card draw, but it’s unlikely. Twilight Drake seems just better, because it gains health for each CARD in your hand, and it still doesn’t see play in most of the decks.  Very meh card.

Card rating: 3/10

    A twilight drake that is worse. One less mana and one less attack, but usually gains way less health. Nah

      Twilight Drake is run in control decks with mostly spells. Probably minus 1-2 health on average. And Twilight Drake is an extremely good card in those decks.

    So realistically in mage you can have 5 spells in your hand

    so this can be thought as 3 mana 3/6 that can be silenced.

    Pretty good, not worth for standard to. 3/5

    A better twilight Drake if the rest of your deck is spells. Otherwise it sucks. The only potentially viable deck, spell hunter can’t use it bc of legendary weapon, so…. probably not seeing play.

    Yeah you see the thing is that deck with a lot of spells don’t care about minions.
