Duskfallen Aviana Additional Information

Duskfallen Aviana Card Review

I thought that it’s some kind of April Fools joke, but no, it’s real. This card reminds me of another – Millhouse Manastorm. You know why no one plays it, despite it having the best 2-drop stats in the entire game? The reason is simple – it can lose you the game on the spot.

And this card is exactly like that. Remember that after playing this, you’ve already played your first card that turn. It means that you don’t get that effect right away. But you know who does? Your opponent.

Their first card will cost 0 mana. Which means that yes, exactly, they can play a big drop for no cost at all, and then possibly even remove this minion. If you play vs another Control or Midrange deck, they will most likely have a way to clear it while also getting lots of free tempo. For example, they might drop some expensive minion first for 0 mana and then use the rest of their mana for a removal. They might turn into the DK first and then remove it (imagine Mage getting a Jaina DK for free on Turn 5-6…).

This feels better in Aggro matchups, but not by a huge margin. They still get to act first, so they can e.g. drop a Spellbreaker for free and then continue their turn like usual. They might be able to kill it with a weapon/minions on the board, and if they can, it’s like you’ve played a 5 mana 3/7 Taunt that gave them some free mana. The best case scenario for you is when they can’t kill it and you have a huge bomb in your hand, or when they’re topdecking and would play the card they get anyway.

I just can’t find any use for it. Yes, sometimes it’s going to win you the game if your opponent can’t abuse the effect AT ALL, but 9/10 times you will come out behind when playing it.

This is a meme card at best, but it’s not even a good meme card, because it’s not particularly fun or innovative.

Card rating: 1/10

            I run it in a troll Hand Druid with that other Witchwood legendary that gave you a 10/10 copy of a minion. In low levels when the decks are just trash they don’t know what to do and I saw someone actively avoiding to kill her. It works like 80% of the time ( mostly just cause I have way better cards ) but when I pull both cards I play her, then wait and play the copycat one and next turn the 10/10 just to deliver the fatal blow with it.

            *** – Good for trolls and crazy comboes.

            Also only affects me with the effect when they topdeck at 10 mana so I try to get them to use as many cards as possible.

    April 4, 2018 at 9:41 am

    If you REEEEEEAAAALLLY need to get this effect first: you play her on turn 10. then cube her on the same turn. if enemy doesn’t kill cube just buff it so he HAS to kill it or just drop a doomsayer.

    Duskfallen Aviana

    5 Mana
    3 / 7

    Choose one: Dust this card and gain +400 Arcane Dust
    Fill the last slot of your Deck with this “Mega Ultra Chicken”
    and increase the chance of your opponent, to draw a card
    that would rip your ass apart, to 80%.

    I dont think this card is such a bad card. If you really play it in turn five your enemy has to kill it with an instand destroy spell. So one removal spell is away for him. If he can play a big minion use the 1 mana spell which destroys a minion and let the enemy take two cards, no matter. But in the case aviana survive you have a big game before. Cause if you have aviana or khun in the hand the game iwll destroy the enemy instand in my opinion. The biggest problem i think is the second turn the enemy get. Because there you have a strong board, and warlocks for example can do a nether for 0 mana. But if this card survive i bet in 90 percent of time you will win the game. And if it doenst survives just play a mill deck an dont care. Or beat the enemy with other big minions he cant remove cause of taking one spell for the aviana. Funny card for me with maybe an awesome use. 4/5

    It’s a crap card but I’m fine with it. Any decent TCG always has a couple of garbage legendaries. It actually makes the game better. You can’t have the great cards without some bad ones too. And Druid has been a consistently strong class since launch. Now if the second Druid leg. is also terrible then that would be a problem.

    • Grulog
      April 2, 2018 at 9:06 pm

      It has ramp potential, and early in the game it could get the other deck to burn a removal.

      I could see a “coin->wild growth->greedy sprite->this card->win” scenario with it.

      especially in wild with regular aviana and kun in hand, as opposed to waiting a few turns and letting someone develop board presence. if you played it with quest druid, you could potentially have free minions for the rest of the game by turn 6.

      at that point, it wouldn’t matter what they could throw at you.

      • CD001
        April 3, 2018 at 6:24 am

        With Quest Druid you can already get free minions for the rest of the game by turn 6… and it’s not *that* uncommon with Cursed Disciple, Oaken Summons, King Mukla (actually good in Quest Druid if you can Summon him), Stranglethorn Tiger and Menagerie Warden (rotating out though).

        This however doesn’t even have 5 attack to help with the quest and gives your opponent a free card to drop first.

        In Wild, Aviana/Kun you’d be relying on dropping Duskfallen Aviana on turn 5 (or earlier) *and* having it survive, unsilenced to your next turn (after giving your opponent a 100% cost reduction on any card their holding) to be able to drop (good) Aviana and Kun and all other giant minions in your hand on your next turn… that’s a *lot* of ifs in a very small window; by turn 8 your opponent could well have the perfect counter in a single card like Twisting Nether or Shadowreaper Anduin – let you flood the board with your giant minions then just kill the lot.

        I suspect playing this will lose you far more games than it wins.

    There’s gotta be some sort of mechanic to summon this on your oppornent’s turn, like some said with cube, or with recruit… there’s gotta be a card with a deathrattle to summon a 5 cost minion from your deck or your hand, so it does not come to play in it’s owner’s turn…

  19. hughese
    April 2, 2018 at 10:44 am

    I think people are writing off this card too early. Yes it is poor in most situations, but supposing we’re in a meta dominated by aggro this card can be extremely powerful. Drop it when your opponents hand is close to empty and they’re forced to deal with it, if they can’t you UI for 0 mana and, I expect, stabilise and win the game. Not saying it’s a good card, but I don’t think it’s as terrible as people think.

    April 2, 2018 at 10:42 am

    Carnivorous cube,meat wagon and alarmbot…we atleast have 6 cards that can keep Avian to be summoned in your turn to you,any deck that can replace 3,5,7 or 9 slot with some combo cards could try it,if would really replace not so important cards cause atleast this combo would save you like 1 each 6 games(alarmbot,meatwagon and it support buff and the cube are strong cards even if not used for that combo)if you need try to summon Avian in half of these games(if you’re losting tempo against a midrange or valor against a control for example) really have the combo pieces in the rigth place half of these times,and can done the combo the majority times you try it…a combo that save you 1 each 6 games and let you use the combo pieces to gain tempo(less Avian of course)is probly a nice deal,and I like very much these cards seemed a garbage but actually have a hidden potential xD

            An card that buff a little the atack from 8 minions in your deck if you draw it,and have you to build a deck around it to not be useless is really better than a 4/4 minion that can alone kill everybody in board or a 4 3/6 minion that are still nice in turn 10

    • Lucasato
      April 2, 2018 at 10:52 am

      To me it’s the better expansion ever cause it have so much “bluff cards”,like secrets it give you a effect that you opponent know just half from,like emeriss,your opponent know that you buff every minion in your hand,but don’t know if there’s an Leroy and a face manipulator,so he will never know how to react…

      If your opponent kills the Cube using cards from their hand they lose the first card discount and it will be benefitting you’re next turn and if they ignore it you can kill the cube yourself via trading sounds like a good Idea I’ll be testing this out
      A few problems though
      First its a pretty weak turn 10 play (especially when its silenced) and your opponent could put up low attack high health taunts (like Voidlord) to delay your power turn also once the cube breaks and you make your swing it’ll be your opponents turn to play a zero mana card also if your opponent can kill the cube without using any cards from their hand (like trading their minions into the cube) they get the benefit first anyway

    April 2, 2018 at 4:55 am

    Hmm, let’s see..
    In wild: Duskfaller Aviana -> (on your turn) the original Aviana -> put some big minions and the last one Kun and again put some big minions. Or some combo with Malygos and after Kun.
    I think the idea of this card is to can put the original Aviana faster, at 6 mana or something.

    • Nilmur
      April 2, 2018 at 4:57 am

      Correction Duskfaller Avian into Aviana.

    • Wow
      April 2, 2018 at 4:58 am

      And maybe there is some synergy with the druid weapon from kobolds & catacombs.
      Having a card to cost 0 is something very powerful, don’t underestimate it especially that is on druid which has alot of ways to get mana fast. You said that Keleseth is a bad card, wait until someone finds a combo with this card.

    • zamudek .
      April 2, 2018 at 5:01 am

      It says first card in each turn…this card took that spot so until your next turn, the effect that would benefit you doesn’t take place. Take the Pint-Sized Summoner as an example

      • Wow
        April 2, 2018 at 5:18 am

        Well yeah, that’s what I mean.
        If you’re lucky and this card survives on the board until your turn, you can make some sick combos.

  33. Helioshadow
    April 2, 2018 at 4:51 am

    Honestly I can see this being great against Aggro. Clear their board, drop this around turn 6 or 7when their hand is empty as well as their board, then you Maly-Faceless burst them out of nowhere, many turns before you would’ve had the full Aviana/Kun Combo.

    That being said though, this is basically a dead card against control, and horrendous against a combo deck. So idk.

    • Brady Lynch
      April 2, 2018 at 6:21 am

      Yeah but at that point after you’ve cleared their board and they are out of cards in hand and board and youre druid, shouldn’t you win anyway?

    • Somenoob
      April 2, 2018 at 6:49 am

      Frankly, if you can waste your turn on this sub-par minion against aggro, you’ve already won.

  34. minti
    April 2, 2018 at 4:29 am

    I honestly beli this is some april fools joke. Some nameless harpy to be the druid legendary they could have at least gave her a name. 5 mana pint size summoner with bonus effect that helps your oponent. I mean its cho’gall value unplayable, that was the only legendary that i dusted and i dont regret it. Now of course the idea about blood magic warlock is really tempting and sounds cool the lack of ultimate infestation-like spell kills it and it will never be playable in stadard.

    The same problem is with this card its a ramp druid support card and ramp druid is gone. You can add it to your ramp deck but there is still a chance your oponent takes advantage since the new meta introdused some crazy 9 mana cards for the control classes like obsidian statue and void lords whitch as druid you cant outvaluenot to mention you are potentially giving your oponent a free turn of their lich king before yours and the fact that as druid you dont have that much removal and astral tiger druid being the recruit version of the druid and the new tempo style hand druid i dont see this card making it to the meta.

    The only viable strategy is that you can ramp mally and otk your oponent on turn 7 potentially that is if you are lucky with the draw (extremely kind of lucky)

  35. WildRage
    April 2, 2018 at 4:00 am

    This card could potentially work with a Deathrattle card that recruits a minion, similar to Grizzled Guardian but taylored to work with this card.
    The obvious problem is that by the time you play Daskfaller Avian or recruit her through cards like Oaken Summons, you’ve already played your first card so her ability is useless until your next turn.
    Even worst, you’ve actually allowed your opponent to use her ability before you, play a card for 0 cost and they probably removed her by the time your turn comes up.
    This would have been fine if you could use her ability immediately after she’s summoned (I can’t really think of the appropriate wording for that), but this way it’s pretty bad. Maybe “The first card each player plays each turn, other than this card, costs 0 mana” would have made this card work. Actually, it would have been a decent card that unlocks a couple of combo decks. It would have been exceptional in Malygos Druid.

    • DyingHawk
      April 2, 2018 at 4:34 am

      You might not understand what this effect does. It is not a super pint-sized summoner. It allows your opponent to play the card first. This card is guaranteed to lose you the game unless your opponent has no cards over (4) cost in their hand or they have an empty hand. this is 5-mana lose the game. At which point this likely is not the card you want to play anyway. This is beyond shit, about 4 times worse than temporus, an already terrible card.

      • Infrapuna

    April 2, 2018 at 3:17 am

    You are not seeing the big picture here:
    In wild you play Alarm-o-bot on turn 2 with coin –> Aviana comes out–> you play Kun and refresh the mana crystals –> replay Alarm-o-bot –> ??? –> value

    • Psycho
      April 2, 2018 at 4:13 am

      Aviana works only on your minions passively. This card works similarly to Pint-sized Summoner, it starts working only on the turn after you play it. Worse, it allows your opponent to use it before you, so you may give him a massive tempo swing by allowing him to play a big card for 0 and then playing a removal. It has potential, but like Dirty Rat and Bring it On, it will backfire from time to time

        Agro will have board control. So they play their most expansive card for free and kill this after that…

  40. Soup And Salad
    April 2, 2018 at 2:26 am

    This can be good if you’re playing against aggro and they’ve pretty much run out of cards or really any deck that have run out of cards in the hand. That is a rather niche application, but I can see it happening if there’s ever a situation where Druid is the most value oriented deck out there.

    Even though this will end up not seeing play unless the format shifts in one of the oddest ways imaginable, the game is better for there to be legendary card that are as interesting as this or Temporus. They may not see play, but they might stay in the back of you mind in a similar way the card “One with Nothing” tends to in the minds if Magic the Gathering players.

    • DyingHawk
      April 2, 2018 at 4:38 am

      playing against an aggro deck who doesn’t have board control and has no cards in hand is called winning the game. So yes, If you play this as your opponent is conceding you can win the game with it. I agree temporus is interesting and fun. But this is not, this loses you the game 99% of the time. Temporus probably does that 75% of the time. This isn’t even a fun card.

    I don’t think this card is as bad as it looks.

    The first thought is you could combo with ultimate infestation for free, and that’s insane power spike at turn 6. A high risk high reward card.

    If you are playing against aggro decks, your opponent may save at most 4 mana, but you are gaining 8-10 mana value

    • DyingHawk
      April 2, 2018 at 4:40 am

    Oh, look, it’s a Temporus for Druid! Awesome effect which your opponent gets to exploit earlier, thus probably leading you to lose the game. If at least you could give it Stealth for a turn, it would work in the Malygos Druid. As it is, your opponent will play a card for 0 the next turn and make sure you don’t have this minion or its effect by the next turn. 2 out of 5 stars, meme legendary, but like Temporus, it could be exploited in the future if you can get around its drawback (so far unlikely).

    It might seems bad, but if you ramp and play it at turn 3 or 4 and play Tyrantus on turn 4-5, each pretty much over. (not to mention Witching Hour <3 )

    You know what I’m noticing druids are getting So many BAD CARDS in this expation. Also, this is just MY opinion, But why have the Druid class been getting the most nerfs In Patches. I told my friend that I haven’t played Druid Sence the launch of the Mean Streets Of Gadgetzand because that was the last expansion that I liked/ loved their cards. But with recent exceptions, they just don’t have any fun or interesting cards. well besides a couple of cards but overall I have been having more fun with the other classes ( except Priest Fuck that class).

    Just a weird design. You could design cards like this for games where you can make plays during your opponent’s turn, but in Hearthstone?

    This is crap.

    If only Druid had an effect like Skull of the Man’ari to cheat this out. Then you could abuse her.

    Might work nice with the 0/3 that switches places with a minion in your hand at beginning of your turn but even then it would be clunky and unreliable.

    I wonder what the designer was thinking while making this card? It is mind blowingly awkward.

      I’m curious to know how this card actually interacts when it is played out. Since it IS the first card you play, it’s effect won’t activate and you’ll pay out the 5 mana for a mediocre minion at best. OR it could be a “pay 5 for this and 0 for UI” the turn it is played. Hoping the latter isn’t true. Seems like a fun pseudo-taunt to have though 🙂

      • Killer Lord
        April 2, 2018 at 12:35 am

        You probably pay the 5 mana, and every card you play after isn’t the first card anymore. Just like pint-sized summoner. If you play her, the minion you play after her has it’s regular cost, and not a reduced one

  53. WaqTheWalker
    April 2, 2018 at 12:13 am

    Aggro can just play their biggest minion on their turn and silence this minion. XD

  54. Gamerdude
    April 2, 2018 at 12:02 am

    Why can’t this card be a 8 mana 2/7 that says the first card YOU play each turn costs zero. What I am reading right now is the next card your opponent plays cost zero and they discard a removal spell for five mana

    • DyingHawk
      April 2, 2018 at 4:43 am

      this is a great idea. Blizzard probably created this one at a drunken new years party and never playtested it or used a single brain cell thinking about it.

  55. Astramir
    April 1, 2018 at 11:56 pm

    I think it’s a fake for two reasons. It’s not on Blizz’s official spoilers gallery [1], and it’s got a common title. Legendaries are characters with real namesakes.

    Afterthought: plus the art doesn’t have that ‘legend’ feel, imo.

      It’s not fake, it was leaked via the Korean Blizzard press area (where it has since been removed). Blizzard’s official spoilers gallery is updated slowly (and rarely done on weekends), and because it was leaked it wouldn’t be added there.

    Alright so don’t get me wrong the art is cool and the affect can lead to some combos but I think twig may fill this role better. This card let’s your opponent take advantage of the effect first so say you are going against a controll warlock they play a voiddaddy for free and then they get remove it with a siphon soul. Much like the one six each player draws at the end of your turn it gives your opponent aadvantage over you if the affect.

    People compare this to milhouse a lot, but i dont think its that bad since youre only giving your opponent one card. Its actually more like temporus. Still trash tho, just putting that out there

    • DyingHawk
      April 2, 2018 at 4:45 am

      no it is that bad, in fact it’s worse. against some decks millhouse can survive and you then have a crazy turn two body. This will NEVER survive against anything you haven’t already won against and it will lose you the game.

  61. HS
    April 1, 2018 at 10:26 pm

    i see this as a weird anti aggro, if your opponent have no cards this is good, but seems to situacional to be played in constructed, is nice to have useless legendarys, imagine if you need to craft all legendary cards

  62. DhaosLaser
    April 1, 2018 at 10:20 pm

    is blizzard for real? this is a CLASS legendary? this set is looking very bad for druid… the only saving card to the moment is the beast ress.

    well, not that i need anything for my combo druid in wild, but still sucks to watch this reveal.

    this should at least be some battlecry with a permanent effect, so you give advantage to your opponent but get guaranteed value to yourself. hoping for a real legendary next, or at least something a little good.

    April 1, 2018 at 9:57 pm

    This wants to be in Big Druid. Sure, you give your opponent a huge benefit but you also get to play your Tyrantus, or Lich King or Malygos on turn 6. Or hell, play Spreading Plague for free next turn. Don’t underestimate this card.

    • Felixhana
      April 1, 2018 at 10:15 pm

      Wrong, this has to be alive because the effect is not battlecry. So you opponent just play his free card then kill this, very easy for a control deck to do that on turn 6

  66. Kondrias
    April 1, 2018 at 9:50 pm

    This card is going to be the king of rank 15 memes. At 20 players thought is. Kill everything then them. At 15 it is go face use your advantage. So people gonna leave it up like dolts just playing a big minion that costs 0 and then the druid who played this will play some big rediculous stuff and ruin your day.

    • Sterling90
      April 1, 2018 at 9:52 pm

      This is on par with Millhouse. Druids are in a worse position than the Germans were in the aftermath of WW2. Looks like the class will be getting a timeout for a while on account of the havoc they created with Jades and whatnot. GG Druid players.

      Dirty Rat rotates. And if you’re playing in wild – then – who really cares if this card works in that format because everything is broken in Wild.

    April 1, 2018 at 9:39 pm

    Nah, you guys have it all wrong. This is the “New” and “Improved” Druid class. Druid’s are all about Peace, the environment, and Free Love maaaaaan. Like, here, I’ll summon my 4 mana cost 1 attack/6 health Forest Guide! There. A card for me and a card for YOU. Oh, look it’s my Duskfaller Avian. You want to Pyroblast me in the face? Take the first shot on ME friend. — What a great idea! …. …. …. Ok guys, April fools day is over. Let’s see the real card text.

    April 1, 2018 at 9:37 pm

    My dick has been split in two upon seeing this card. Guess Druid had too much glory last standard rotation, time to to nerf he crap out of it by giving him literally the worst cards.

    This is worst than Wilfrid Fizzlebang, if anybody remember that card from TGT


  71. Deathtosanta
    April 1, 2018 at 9:37 pm

    *plays this*
    -Opponent removes for 0 mana
    -Ultimate infestation for 0
    -Free death knight
    -Combos off turn 5
    Since you can never use this effect before your opponent… what is the wincondition of this card exactly? Hope they leave it on the board so you can combo?

  72. Spyder9899

  75. Dave
    April 1, 2018 at 9:24 pm

    Hello again guys. Im assuming you all forgot that Malygos will love this card. WIth the Twig weapon, you are basically receiving 2 turns in one with a card like this. Its a stretch but control is a thing now and i see this card being very useful. Im open to other opinions…

    • Orasha
      April 1, 2018 at 9:42 pm

      It’s just too easy to remove. Aggro decks might not be able to remove it, and they benefit less from the effect, but against aggro you don’t need to kill them with the Malygos combo, since you can just run them out of resources. And if they can’t get rid of a 3/7, they definitely can’t remove a 4/12. Control decks are where you really care about the OTK, and Control decks WILL have a way to remove this card, and their removal has the potential to be FREE the next turn.

      At least Temporus is guaranteed to give you 2 turns, even if it dies…

      • Random Dude
        April 4, 2018 at 2:39 am

        Yeah, but most Aggro by turn 5 is either:
        A. in the lead (and can push for final/sufficient face with Aviana’s notable help)
        B. losing

        It’s not uncommon for Aggro to deal 10 face dmg by turn 3. Matches against fast decks tend to be already leaning towards a resolution mid-game, in whichever direction. Receiving a massive tempo gain on T5/6 is pretty much “Kick me as hard as you can, if I’m still standing by next tur-… OW!”,

        – So no, I don’t see it against Aggro (unless they run out of cards by then, but that’s universal).
        – Against Tempo it’s ridiculous, since it actually produces a tempo gain for the Op.
        – Against Control, which by definition has sufficient removal tools, it’s a free play for the other guy.

        Maybe if this had Taunt. But I still see it removed or silenced after a big, free play from your Op. And even if it lives by your next turn, you’re too busy dealing with whatever was put on the board thanks to it.

        It’ll win you some games. It’ll lose you more.

    • Wywern
      April 2, 2018 at 3:11 am

      There is no way this card doesnt get removed on turn 5, expecting it to live on 10 is just delirious. This thing isn’t even useful against aggro or other decks that run out of cards, since if you can waste your turn on this, you’ve already won.

    Holy hell… just putting it out there that this card will see ranked standard play. Can cheat multiple cards/ combos then just Naturalize if you care to take this away from the other player. Not saying broken (yet) but for sure decent enough to notice and perhaps play.

      You do realize that your opponent gets the first free card. So you play this, they play a free legendary or UI or something of that nature, then remove her, and just get free value.

    • Krapp
      April 1, 2018 at 10:33 pm

      This card is pure Krapp. It enables opponent combo before yours, cost 5 and it’s so fucking removable.
      The best scenario you will encounter is: turn 5 duskfellah, opponent turn, legendary + removal=gg
