    In theory, this card only useful in summoning 8+ minions without battlecry, or 8+ spells, because lower than that, players don’t get the payoff. And that’s actually a very bad card. No one gonna play this if the cost is not cheated in some ways.

    But then again, C. Alignment still in Standard, and the card is actually very good tutor. Which then make this a broken card. I could actually see this being nerf, but I honestly don’t know how to nerf this. The cost of this is already bad enough when C. Alignment rotate out, and it’s useless to raise it even further.

    I guess that it’s a cool card? This kind of cards is bound to someday break the game, especially for the spell part of it, which is also the less impressive part right now. I guess the devs are trying to push for this Ramp Big Druid archetype, where it really didn’t need more support to become meta. What is actually missing though are the big minions: what’s the payoff? What’s the actual minion you’d like to summon with this vardon?

      its two extra copies of malygos in Wild that are one cheaper and easier to discount further

      Celestial druid could use it, use it for the sake of combos using Anacondra, Sesselie of the Fae Court, and the new druid dragon. Cheat Sessalie out, draw either a 0 cost anacondra or the topiary drake and just keep applying pressure. I don’t believe it is amazing but there are other options but I think it is more a nature/anacondra/topiary drake deck.

        Nah, play manasaber + anacondra + mechathun, cut all other minions, pre-alignment this gives you a shot at alignment, post alignment it guarantees anacondra or is a 0 mana draw + cast a spell with anacondra in play.
