Star Aligner Card Review
If all stars align, this card might actually be powerful. Which is basically the entire concept of this card. It’s a joke card, a pack filler that was made more interesting by the design team than just another variation of vanilla stats on a minion with no effect. It’s will work just as well as another 8 mana 5/11 or 4 mana 7/2, but unlike those, it will actually be interesting. And some folks will do everything to try and make it work just for the sake of it. Which is fun!
If you haven’t realized that yet, I hate to break it to you, but this card just sucks. 99% of the time it’s a War Golem, and it will work roughly 1% of the time. If you needed to have 3 minions with 7 OR MORE health, then it might make a tiny bit of sense. But it’s exactly 7. You basically need to build your entire deck around its effect, and then it’s still incredibly hard to stick THREE of those minions onto the board at the same time. Is it possible? Yes. Is it viable? No.
Not to mention that 7 health minions usually have a solid amount of attack too. If you have three of those on the board, the chances are that you’re winning the game anyway and you don’t really need to deal 7 to all enemies. So not only it’s incredibly hard to pull off, but it’s also a win more card on top of that.
Still, I’m looking forward to seeing people experiment with this card. When it finally works, it will surely feel great.
Card rating: 7/10*
*(It’s really 1/10, but I gave it +6 for a fun design/flavor)
