Quartz Elemental Card Review
This card has 2 more health over vanilla 5-drop (Pit Fighter) that would never see play in Constructed. While I believe that a vanilla 5/8 might see some play, this card comes with a quite big downside – it can’t attack when its damaged. It might not seem as crippling as “Can’t Attack” in general (hence it costs 5 mana and not 3 mana like Humongous Razorleaf), but it actually is quite bad. For example – you play vs an Aggro deck with some 1/1 on the board, he can trade into it. Now, you HAVE to spend 2 mana on your Hero Power if you want to attack with it. Even worse if you end up killing something bigger. E.g. if you trade it into a 5/5, you would need to heal it for a few turns in a row for it to work. Or rather, you wouldn’t be able to attack until you drop Divine Hymn too.
I mean, it’s not THAT bad. After all, the stats somewhat try to make up for the downside. But I still can’t see it being good enough unless you put a lot of healing cards / synergies into your deck. For example, if you run either a Baku Odd deck (Hero Power now heals for 4), or put cards like Circle of Healing + Divine Hymn into your regular Priest deck, it might work. But it’s just not good enough to build a healing deck around.
Card rating: 5/10
