Soup Vendor Card Review
It’s an interesting effect, but I don’t think that it will make cut. Most importantly, healing for 3 in this case means healing for 3 at once. If you heal for 2 and then for 2 on the same turn, it won’t trigger. If you play Healing Rain, it won’t draw 4 cards, since Rain heals for 1 at the time.
There are two issues with this card. First, the stat line. It’s okay for a 1/4 that draws a card, but the thing is that it doesn’t draw a card immediately. If you drop it on T2, it needs to survive until at least another turn to do it, so it’s not really a 2-drop – it’s more of a mid/late game card to combo with healing immediately. Another thing is that 3+ healing cards are not THAT common, a lot of the effects actually heal for 2, which is obviously not going to cut it. And finally, in order for this card to really start getting value, you need to trigger its effect twice (otherwise just playing Loot Hoarder won’t be much worse, since those stats are kind of meaningless in the mid/late game anyway), and that’s again not easy due to the lack of 3+ healing effects as well as the weak stats of this minion.
I honestly think that there are more reliable ways to draw cards, not to mention that those heal-oriented decks might not necessarily need to draw that much in the first place anyway.
It seems okay-ish in something like Heal Paladin, but I don’t think I would actually put it in there. No guaranteed pay-off and pretty situational card draw.
Card rating: 3/10
