Luna’s Pocket Galaxy Card Review
This is a very interesting card, and the effect really looks broken. Reducing the cost of all minions in your deck is massive, it activates all kinds of Big and Combo decks. Just think about it – a 1 maan Archmage Antonidas or even Malygos would be absolutely broken. However, I think that people were lost in the hype and didn’t think about this card longer.
First and most importantly – it’s a 7 mana card with zero immediate effect. And I mean zero, not even a small board clear, minion or whatever. Since Mage has no way to cheat mana on spells, that 7 mana will always have to be spent. Another thing is that it reduces the cost of minions in your DECK, not in your hand. That’s one of the reasons why Quest Druid is not always consistent – and Quest Druid usually gets to finish the Quest quite quickly. The issue here is that if you go for a combo deck, and you draw one of your combo pieces, then it won’t get a discount. You can theoretically shuffle it with Baleful Banker and THEN play Pocket Galaxy, but that means that you have to spend two entire turns not clearing/freezing the board, which might be way too much in the late game. This card can also be stuck in your deck for a while. Yes, you COULD try to fetch it with Raven Familiar, but if you play a combo deck, you need lots of other spells to stall the game, stuff like Dragon's Fury and Blizzard, so you won’t get it consistently. Not to mention that a Combo deck wouldn’t take a huge advantage of this effect, because the deck is spell-heavy, not minion-heavy. It’s just incredibly hard to make it work, and people are looking way too much into the best case scenario.
So maybe some other deck? The deck definitely needs to be minion-heavy, with multiple bigger minions to really take advantage of it. Something like Elemental Mage? Then again, there’s another huge issue. Spending 7 mana doing nothing means that you fall behind in tempo. So you probably need some powerful AoEs to come back, and if you have a minion-heavy deck, you might simply not have one.
Maybe an entire deck will be built around it, with Stargazer Luna, Aluneth etc. But again, perfect case scenario – if it works, then it’s great. But realistically, it will rarely work. So when it comes to this card, I’m going to go against the hype and say that it’s pretty bad. It might be better in Wild, where you still have Ice Block and you can cheat it out with Inkmaster Solia in Reno deck.
Card rating: 3/10
