Spirit of the Frog Card Review
If anything, the card is a real deck building challenge. When you play it, you want to run spells with increasing mana cost, e.g. have a 2, 3, 4 and 5 mana spells. You definitely do not want to skip any mana cost, e.g. having 2, 4 and 5 would mean that you can only draw with the 4 mana one, and that’s not good.
While in theory it could be a nice way to chain burn cards as Aggro, I don’t think that’s the best way to use this card (I mean, it costs 3 by itself and doesn’t do anything immediately, so it’s not a great fit in Aggro). But a slower, Control deck can really use this effect to the fullest extent. For example, Crushing Hand or Elementary Reaction in 2 mana slot, Lightning Storm or Haunting Visions in 3 mana slot, Hex in 4 mana slot, Volcano in 5 mana slot and Rain of Toads in 6 mana slot (not necessarily). Which means that basically no matter what you play with this card, you draw something else.
It’s also pretty interesting with Unstable Evolution if you run a bunch of 2 mana spells. This + a single Evolution can draw you all of them quite easily.
Another good thing about it is that the draw isn’t random. If you run only a single spell in a certain mana slot, you can be 100% sure that you will draw it. So if your 4 mana slot is Hex and you’re looking for it in the late game, you can play this, a 3 mana spell to draw Hex, and then even Hex something to draw Volcano.
Sadly, the card’s power gets lower and lower as the game goes by. You will eventually start seeing holes in your mana curve, because you never draw cards evenly. But it’s really good for the mid and late game (not very late game) shenanigans in a slower deck. Maybe even in Aggro, because chaining Lightning Bolt -> Rockbiter Weapon -> Lava Burst is no joke (but I still think that it’s too slow for Aggro).
Card rating: 7/10
