    I remember seeing Amaz say that this exact effect with this exact wording would be good when he was talking about “Forbidden: Shaping” in his whispers of the old gods reviews, and he was also pretty close with his nerf guesses, I think Bliz watches Amaz

      Most of the nerfs were pretty obvious. Also, Amaz said a shitload of card nerfs… Not hard to hit “all of them” if your prediction s like half of the cards would be nerfed.

    I think it goes well in most decks, but also particularly in an astral communion deck, as it can both be played on turn 3 if necessary and all the other turns for 10/10

    Combo with Brann and Innervate.

      Do you think it will work with Brann? I’m sceptical. I mean, the minion’s battlecry states it will spend all your mana and gain +1/+1 for each mana spent. When reaching the second battlecry you got no mana left to spend from, therefore the second battlecry will have no effect at all thus no reason to play Brann beforehand. Correct me if I’m wrong.

    I like this type of card because it can be as big as it needs to be. It would be alot better if it had taunt

      it would be better but the taunt would make it different from the other forbidden cards (it already is since its the only minion but still)
