Extra Arms Card Review

Cool card, I love the flavor. Sadly, it doesn’t look too strong. You’re paying 6 mana for what is basically a Blessing of Kings – overpaying 2 mana is not great. Of course, you can argue that you can spread it among two targets, it synergizes with Test Subject, you can play it for cheaper with Radiant Elemental and those are all true, but I still don’t think those make it good enough.

I feel like Unidentified Elixir might be a better option for one simple reason – it’s a higher tempo play. Besides the +2/+2 buff, you’re also getting an extra, immediate effect, as opposed to another 3 mana +2/+2 buff. A slow card that gives you another slow card isn’t great if it doesn’t impact the game significantly. And this one doesn’t.

So, again, I like the flavor, but I doubt that it will see play, because it seems underwhelming.

Card rating: 3/10

    Where is the “more arms” token card? It’s not in the searchable card list!

    Priest will be sooooo bad.. other classes has such a tempo and value swing, and Priest has no AoE, no new dragon. Only playable thing would be quest but u will still die before or after playing amara.. soo it doersnt even mater.. I am realy sad that class that was mostly bad and had just 1 goood time when they ofc have to nerf to stop it… and where is the cloning theme ? most of the cards has nothing coomon with cloning.. Blizzard again didnt suprise mew with Priest

      I like the idea here and would love to play buff priest with test subject. Sadly, I think you’re right about this card being bad 🙁

    Card is ok, but I don’t think buff priest will work.

    1/5

          Ripoff quest paladin? Lol it’s so out of meta people don’t even know the name of the quest reward. I don’t blame you tho. It’s literally just a meme.

            No I know what you meant I just don’t get how this is a rip off of galvadon specifically. It’s more of a rip off of the primalfin champion.

          Oh I meant the archetype in general. Not the specific card lol.

    The stream has a bit of delay in EU, doesnt it? Or are you literally faster than the stream?

      I would bet that it’s Stonekeep that is faster.
