Elemental Evocation Card Review
Innervate for Elementals? Why not.
I like the card and I think that it might be quite powerful. If you’ve ever played the Elemental Mage build with Mountain Giants, you’d know that the deck doesn’t struggle when it comes to value or card advantage. On the contrary, it’s often looking for ways to get some extra tempo on the board. This card will definitely help with that, Tempo swing potential is quite high. E.g. something as simple as Elemental Evocation + Water Elemental on T1/T2 can be like an old Innervate + Yeti, but this time it also freezes the face, so it can counter Odd Rogue. Evocation + Blazecaller can be an amazing T5 play – you can easily clear their 4-drop or 5-drop while developing a 6/6. You can even get out the new Arcanosaur earlier if you need it against Aggro.
The only issue I have with this card is that the Elemental deck I’ve talked about runs 2x Book of Specters, so it doesn’t want to run many spells. The current build (at least the one I’ve played) doesn’t run any other spell than those, so adding two Invocations might not be that big of a deal in terms of consistency, but still – it’s something to consider. Maybe even a more aggressive / tempo-oriented Elemental Mage build would pop out? Because T1 Nightmare Amalgam or T2 Water Elemental might even carry some games.
Card rating: 8/10 in Elemental Mage, obviously useless outside
