Spellshifter Card Review
Only one good thing could be said about this card – it’s better than Dalaran Mage. But that’s about it.
Neither 1/4, nor 4/1 for 2 mana would see any play. We had minions like that before and they never did. To be fair, I feel like this minion shifting in your hand is a downside not an upside. It would be much better as a 2 mana version of Dalaran Mage – the 4/1 minion is bad, because it dies to any 1-drop, it can get pinged easily etc. 1/4 has a chance of surviving a trade or even sticking. The Spell Damage part is a nice addition, of course, but not enough to make it playable. Both Bloodmage Thalnos and Tainted Zealot seem to be better. The first one cycles, so is more disposable, and the second one is more durable – it will always survive two hits. While technically 1/1 with Divine Shield is worse than 1/4 in some scenarios (e.g. facing two 1/1 minions), it’s still better in the late game, because it’s resistant to AoE and such. But the fact that this can switch to 4/1 when you don’t want it makes it a much worse choice. And Zealot doesn’t see any play right now anyway, it has seen some play in Control Warlock thanks to its synergy with Defile but that’s about it.
So I don’t really see any reason to play this guy right now. Possibly in Warlock after the Zealot rotates out, but I still doubt that, because it’s so inconsistent. The card has good synergy with both Defile (1/4 version) and Shadowflame (4/1), but the thing is that you can’t control which one it is, so it’s super inconsistent…
Card rating: 2/10
