Almost, but not quite.
I hate to be overly harsh here… But most likely 1 star. At best, maybe 2 stars.
People compare this card to Cobalt Spellkin… To which I must disagree. Although both cards are resource generators, Cobalt Spellkin at least guarantees that the resources you get are cheap enough to be played. Even if they don’t completely fit into your game plan, you might find some niche scenarios where you’d need some 1 mana removal, or some tiny minion buff that helps it survive a trade.
But for Onyx Magescribe, the resources you get would usually NOT be cheap enough to be played. Most of the time, they’d be completely dead cards in your hand unless they just happen to fit perfectly into your game plan.
Not only this, but Cobalt Spellkin is probably at least 2 mana cheaper than this card (Onyx Magescribe costs one more than this card AND requires you to spend mana on a spell to trigger its effect). Obviously both bodies for Cobalt Spellkin and Onyx Magescribe are bad, but at least playing a weaker body on turn 5 is better than playing a weak body on turn 6.
Even Cobalt Spellkin barely saw play… I wonder how much play this card’s gonna see.
This is a cool card to use. Surely something that a lot of classes like Mage and Rouge would want to have for sure. Only Question is where can it be Placed, becuase it is a bit costly, because of it’s stats. 3 Stars.
A pretty awesome card to evolve into or get from Power of Creation. That being said I don’t think people will be adding this to their decks much but it’s a card I’m glad exists.
Not a bad card for anyone that may be running Highlander deck. Although it could also be a downside card if your class has a bunch of spells that are dependant on you having something else in your hand or deck.. overall it’s a rather nice card that should see play in a few decks.
this is a pretty strong value card for every class. Probably will see play in a variety of mid-control decks. Not sure how strong it will be in those decks, though.
It’s like Cobalt Spellkin only bigger and more expensive.
And you need a spell to activate its effect. The card would be totally broken if it was a Battlecry like Cobalt Spellskin.
Hence why I said more expensive. Not just mana wise, but card wise. However there are plenty of 0-mana spells you can use to trigger it.
Really? Cobalt Spellkin at least guaranteed that you’d get some cheap spells to play. This card doesn’t.
Chances are with this card that you’re gonna end up with some medium-cost spells that don’t really fit into your game plan, and are just gonna sit around in your hand the rest of the game.
Another strong dragon, it has great stats, the effect pays for itself and there are tons of cheap spells revealed already. I think it at least goes into Highlander priest and most dragon decks maybe it’s too expensive for hunter.
Well.. “Alot of cheap spells” also makes this card weaker since it increases your chance on getting some less value spells.
Getting two cards incidentally off a 4/9 for six is still going to be pretty alright.
