    I like this because this is a one-drop that becomes better if you go second, which is good for arena since it helps reduce the advantage of going first. decently costed, trades with a lot of things, slows down the opponent’s deck. Good card and good for the game as I see it

    I mean it seems good and all but what deck would even run it? Doesn’t really fit into any current deck archetypes, combo with corruption/shatter isn’t really good enough as 2 card single target removal doesn’t sound that good no matter how cheap it is, gives your opponent card advantage.

      I’d argue it fits in a midrange elemental deck, or control warlock elemental, if anyone plays it. It’s also good in snowball buff decks so your 1 and 2 drops don’t die from trading,

    THIS! When you see a good 1 drop, you know it’s going to see play.

    Doesn’t actually kill a minion, but its good in a pirate warrior matchup and perhaps in zoolock with corruption? Interesting card. Personally, I don’t see it as ridiculously OP.

    Glacial shard is interesting. It’s 2/1 stat allows it to trade up into with anything that has 2, but if you go first it dose nothing made you can freeze their face to prevent a coin into a 2 manna weapon. if you’re going second you could freeze any weapon class for a slight tempo advantage or their one drop, If your opponent plays a one drop that has 2 hp you get the trade most of the time unless you’re faceing a mage. IF we put this into the reno/zoo deck, which will soon be just a kaza/zoo, we can run corruption( a lesser degree in shatter ) to help in the controll match as it will give us a cheap removal. Glacial shard dose allow tempo gain, it is best played on a board with exactly one minion on the board and can be played both early and late because of it.

    It can also be combo’d with the Warlock spell Curruption for a cool way of removal

    Helps the turn 1 vs turn 2 discrepincy in arena. Freeze your opponents turn 1 play if youre going second, could give you back some tempo.

      Nah, Kripp will probably like this card. Much better going second, which Kripp is always moaning that more cards should be.

    Only problem I can find with this card is you don’t really want to be playing it on turn 1 when you are extremely unlikely to actually get value (it is impossible if you are going first)

    Might as well be a Mage card.

    Hmm, will Shatter finally see some play in Elemental Mage maybe?

    What a great zoo lock card. It’s not aggressive, so unfair, but not on a small time buccaneer level of stupid. Okay maybe it is
