    (Rating based on play it will see in the upcoming meta, similar to trump’s ratings)

    5 Stars

    While seaforiam bomber saw no play whatsoever outside of meme decks (which it still won’t after the rotation) this card is a mech which means it can be magnetized with Zilliax and has rush with Dr Boom Mad genius. Its also cheaper at 3 mana (where at 5 mana you would start to want a stronger effect on the board, rather than just shuffling a bomb). The value meta we are going into means that control vs control is more likely to happen, thus fatigue battles make this cards effect much stronger. However the only reason it will see play is because of Blastmaster boom.

    5 Stars as a 2 of card in a tier 1 deck.

    This card is a better Seaforum Bomber. You could also combo this mechanic with Augmented Elkk

    This mecanic doesn’t look strong enough unless if they print a card to force your opponent drawing all the bombes at once. If your opponent has 14 cards in his deck,playing this card is like dealing 1 damage every 3 draws (5/15). Not very usefull

      I surely hope you don’t base everycqed you see off of how it would perform in a vacuum. 1 damage every 3 cards adds up, but in addition, it’s guaranteed damage eventually, and also provides a downside to what is usually very valuable, which is drawing cards.

    Between the mech tag, its effect, and Blastmaster Boom, this should see play. Filling your opponent’s deck with bombs will prove to be a largely untenable win condition without Coldlight Oracle, but it still is the best bomb shuffler card revealed.

    Auto-include in any kind of Mechwarrior deck. Synergy with Dr. Boom also helps. This is at its worst vs. Aggro decks, but even then a 3/3 body for 3 mana is reasonable. 4/5

    Looks like Elekk is going to be appearing in warrior decks with this and the wrench just need a bit of control for stalling till bombs are drawn these are also cheaper Mana cost than other bomb cards we’ve had.

    This card is solid all around, I’m just imagining how crazy this deck will be in wild. 4/5

    I love the idea of a Bomb Warrior, he’s always been lacking in win conditions other than fatigue (even moreso with Fire Plume’s Heart rotating out). Easy to combo this with Elekk, and even Control Warrior would be happy to pull this from his Mech Discovery tools. Good show.

    Midrange Bomb Warrior is looking nasty. This feels well balanced for it. 4/5

    Oh man a new archetype coming into wild. Bomb warrior. Make way for the fun. And by fun i mean really fun. Its a nice way to screw combo. The more they draw the bigger the chance to draw the bombs. You can dead mans some of the bombers belefull banker then augmented elek them. bran them. Ofc surviving while your oponent draws the bombs is still the hard part of the deck building but it is on. The deck also works againts reno decks since if you shuffle multiple bombs your oponent will not have his reno active. Whitch is why the darkness’s the candles were used for.
    A small card that can go a long way. 3/3 is a regular stat for a 3 mana control minion, but this has th eextra mech tribe to it. In any case it has a place in some decks. Finally some interesting mechs. I really wished boomsday had such interesting minions like this and omega devastator.

      I’m switching to WIld more and more . Thanks for sharing some interesting ideas which may see experimentation or even immediate play, especially in WIld. Unfortunately, Elek and Banker are not Odd to include this bomber archetype in Odd Warrior. We’ll see… Yeah, this deck is going to be a combo killer. Although I enjoy playing some of these, I can see Freeze and Exodia Mage to suffer (proper usage of Ice Block will be more important then ever). Myra’s Kingsbane Rouge… Bombs are 5 mana, which means Hemet can’t kill them.

        i don’t think putting this into another archetype will be that nice. I have had bad experiance with priest mostly. Odd warrior is purely control deck. Reno can give you more healing if you are looking for un ultimate control deck restriction archetype. The upgraded hero power, you can get from justicar. The Dr boom hero power is actually more worth it control wise. And as odd you are losing some good control ptions like slam, execute, doomsayer etc. Do not forget if you choose the mech archetype you can still use the regular boom bots that deal 2 dmg to your oponents face. So don;t feel restricted to commit into one single thing just because it is powerfull. Baku warrior is still very far away from the good warrior combos that carry them into wild. So far baku warrior is only some sort of transition phase. All the good things warrior has get some sort of negative synergy with it. Overall you are ditching a lot of cards while building your deck in order to completely ditch the synergy in the end game.

    An interesting reapplication of mechanics. With the other cards in the bomb warrior, this looks like an intersecting archetype
    4.5/5
