    Broken. 100 % broken card and must be nerfed. It should say “Shuffle two Jade Idols (that only summon a Jade Golem) into your deck”. Druids are immune to fatigue. This is – really – good in any druid decks as a anti-fatigue card.

    Is it just me or when this card get going with fendral and gadgetzan auctioneer it’s just plain dumb. I hate the card because it make me feel blizzard does not do one bit of playtesting. We playtest, they nerf and so on…

    so this will beat any control deck by itself 🙁 priest used to have the best end of game but now…. thanks blizzard, you took away the only good thing for priests 🙁

    I see the potential to absolutely steam role every deck around, and I hate that I’m going to get beat by this all the time, mainly my favorite deck is Warlock, because it takes skill to play well, so this sucks I had high hopes going into this expansion my decks would do okay, but now this strategy trumps them all, I’m forced to win faster than they can summon these golems, which isn’t possible due to the amount of ramp Druid will have after this expansion, thanks blizzard I’ll have to dust all of my cards now in hopes of putting a dent in a deck, that I won’t enjoy playing…

    u guys not seeing the potential of this card.

    Keep playing your control deck as usual then keep shuffling this cheap card.

    first shuffle: 4 cards in deck
    second shuffle: 6 cards in deck

    with the help of others “do something, summon a jade golem” you´ll end up playing HUGE minions with just 1 mana.

      Heck, I’m running zoo and there’s no chance, the ramp druid jade golem has to be the best deck in the game

      People forget that that dilutes your deck also, so shuffling them in early will screw ur draws bad.

      Itll still take finesse to know when to cycle them thru the deck or when to hold onto them.

        November 26, 2016 at 4:48 pm

        They should nerf it now, mainly the jade golem mechanic I’m not mad at the cycling so much as I am mad that will all that ramp, will just be impossible to deal with, zoolock needs to be faster, and we only got slower cards

        • Jason Miller
          November 26, 2016 at 4:58 pm

          This combo would be fair if jade golems were just 3-3 minions, but of course they have to make a mechanic more broken than any other in the game

          What ? you love aggro decks ? 2 years aggro was stronger deck in the game and many beginners could beat pro players with control decks that has too many legendary cards , it’s so good that control decks time has come . this card is not better than 4 mana 7/7 , that card is bug not this.

    Very good. Not actually “broken” all on it’s own, since it fills your deck with the same card. good for sustained value and possible burst in minions on board. but its a grinder. combo and heavy aggression still crush the deck with much earlier plays. it shines against control where you can infinitely play more value than they can remove. so all in all very good. but it won’t win games on its own.

    • Jason Miller
      November 26, 2016 at 4:55 pm

      You’re saying with all the ramp druid has, that this combo will be slow? what are you high? Druid already deals with zoos early game, so zoo wins by like average turn 7, by then you can have 10 mana at least 5 golems deep in combo, and be swiping the crap out of zoos board, while refilling your deck because you didn’t already have enough plus

    I would agree with everyone that in a vacuum this is too broken and simply outrageous. However, in light of the devolve card reveal I am okay with this, to hell with shamans and their broken garbage at least we have something to battle them with now. Fight broken with broken, good one blizzard you made a joke of the expansion and balance in general….but hey at least its not all for shaman!

      Why would you neglect half of a card just to have a one mana add three of these cards to your deck, I don’t see beast druid picking this up ever

      It’s fair if the jade golem mechanic, and the choose one synergy, weren’t a part of it, a one mana add three of these to your deck and heal your hero by 5

    Think of keep shuffling and playing other cards that Summons a jade golem until somewhere in the game you fill the board with a squad of golens 4/4 5/5 6/6 7/7 8/8 and so on.

    Fendral shuffles AND play a jade golem 🙂

    • Moohlord

      This would be a good idea if Druid would be able to draw a lot of cards. Building this card up is very slow and that stops it from being too strong.

      • CD001
        November 24, 2016 at 5:48 am

        Wrath, Nourish, Mark of Y’Shaarj and maybe, at a pinch in a Golem/Minion focused deck, Lunar Visions… Druid isn’t terrible for card draw on the class cards alone.

        Then bear in mind you’ve got Fandral in there as well and all the buff cards that make Token Druid a “thing”. Jade Golems _could_ be the new Tokens as it’s all about the big swing from having nothing on the board to it being full of big minions in very short order… and they could be pretty big minions if they’re Jade Golems.

        A Fandral/Cenarius/Jade Golem Token deck *might* work.

        Are you tallking about the same class?

  14. Zenanii
    November 22, 2016 at 2:38 pm

    While its usability will largely depend on how playable the jade statue cards end up being, my first impression is that it’s strictly worse then gang up. Granted, druid is a much better control class then rogue, but it suffers the exact problems as gang up:
    You’re spending mana and cards for no immediate impact, the card is dead weight in tempo/aggro match ups and you won’t get any significant value out of it until the game reach fatigue.

    I don’t know, I think it might have been playable in warrior/priest, but I think it’s too slow to be playable in druid.

    ALWAYS shuffle the three cards.

  16. Nightfall
    November 22, 2016 at 1:45 pm

    I do think it is a good card, but shuffling 3 copies of it into your deck COULD be a really weak play. first of all you play a card that does possibly nothing, second, when topdecked later in the game and your lotus golems aren’t that strong these cards are really bad. I think it is good I think it’ll be tried but I don’t know if it is ACTUALLY gonna be played in competitive decks

    • Suga
      November 22, 2016 at 2:31 pm

      when you play one a card that lets you summon a golem each time the golem becomes stronger soo it is pretty op to summon for 1 a 4/4 next a 5/5 next a 6/6 and with this card you can have infinite value at a cheap cost

    • 8BitBrain
      November 22, 2016 at 2:59 pm

      Well, 1 mana summon a 1/1 and buff all the others or summon bigger than a 1/1 is insane

      November 22, 2016 at 6:07 pm

    • T33NW01F
      November 22, 2016 at 3:41 pm

      2 for stability, plus if you draw both early on, use one to summon and one to shuffle.

    In the right circumstances its great, but I can’t help but feel that it could be a really, really bad topdeck at the wrong time unless you’re packing some serious card draw. It’s likely to be extremely good, and I will be playing with it until my dying day, but I can’t quite say it’s broken. Shuffling it into the deck is a pretty bad tempo loss, after all.

    • Dingy
      November 22, 2016 at 2:04 pm

      This card will never be played in a standard tempo deck anyways. The tempo loss will be largely irrelevant. The only way to counter this card is a hyper aggressive deck.

      • Simon Caskey
        November 23, 2016 at 8:35 pm

        Tempo in Hearthstone is not just for tempo decks. Tempo loss means this card has zero value when you play it to shuffle copies, and actually prevents you from playing the cards you need to maintain board presence. So no, agro decks are not the only way to stop this. Anything from agro to slowish midrange wants their opponent to be playing this, because it’s incredibly slow.

          It can get as big to as many you play… that was only the example it can be 100/100 if you manage to play that many jade golems. This card is super powerful control/mill Druid here I come!
