    At 3 mana, Shadowbolt is borderline playable. For 4 mana, you expect something dramatically more powerful, like Walk the Plank, Polymorph or Hex. Going back to a bigger Shadowbolt at 5 mana (Flame Lance) is therefore completely out of the question.

    Rolling Fireball is like Flame Lance, except it can make use of any overkill damage. In a way, that makes it more like a smaller, smarter Volcano that only damages enemy minions.

    So, how good is an 8-damage, smart Volcano? Not very. Volcano deals double the damage in exchange for a 2 mana Overload. Reno deals more damage and comes with a 4/6 Body for just 1 more mana. The idea is cool, but 8 damage is just not enough for 5 mana. Warlock can achieve something only slightly weaker for 3 mana with Dark Skies. I give this 2/5.

    A good skill testing card with a mechanic basically stolen from custom hs.

    Soo.. Yeah. Fire Lances and Explosive Runes had a Baby. And I think it’s safe to say that Mage will use this card quite a bit. 5 Stars.

      The real question is can it only dmg 2 minions or could it do more if until hit dead end or ran outta dmg whichever direction went. If it kept going this would practically be a board clear against several aggro decks.

    This will definitely make you put more thought into minion positioning when facing a mage. this basically has potential to wipe out multiple minions if roll keeps going till runs outa dmg.

    Nice one against aggressive one, still a bit of a risk on which way it will go. So always best to hit the center.

      Is that how it works? Can it go right even if I target the rightmost minion with it?
