The Storm Bringer Card Review
I feel like this card is better than some of you might be thinking. While cards that featured random Legendaries weren’t historically very powerful, this might be a difference. Have you ever played Rotface in Recruit Warrior? If you trigger it once, you’re very susceptible to bad RNG – you often low-roll it. But if you trigger it 4-5 times, you nearly always end up with a great board, with at least 2 or 3 bigger minions. And that’s the thing about this card. Evolving an ENTIRE board into Legendaries means that even if you hit some low rolls, at least some out of the let’s say 5 minion’s you’re Evolving are going to turn out to be good.
The main issue here is mana Cost. 7 Mana is A LOT for a Token deck like that. Thrall, Deathseer costed 2 less and it was already sometimes pretty hard to utilize.
“Why not just play Bloodlust?” is the question I’ve read a few times, and it’s a silly question. You still play Bloodlust, duh. It’s just an alternative win condition. You don’t always have Bloodlust, and Bloodlust is not always great. Like when Druid answers your board full of small minions with Spreading Plague – what will Bloodlust do? Maybe clear a few 1/5 Taunts and that’s it. While this can potentially swing the entire game.
With the new Thunderhead and Voltaic Burst, on top of already existing cards like Saronite Chain Gang, Primalfin Totem or Fire Fly, it seems like Token Shaman might some nice ways to build the wide boards of small minions. If a board like that sticks for even a single turn, this card can be incredibly powerful. I mean, you don’t even have to stick a huge board in the late game. If you’re at 10 mana already, and have 2 minions on the board, just play Voltaic Burst + Fire Fly and suddenly you have 6, and can still play this card. And while some of the decks have good answers for a full board of big minions, lots of them will just lose on the spot.
I don’t think that this card alone will make Token Shaman a thing, but it should be a nice addition to the deck nonetheless. I still can’t rate it too high, because even with the new additions Token Shaman might not be good enough.
Card rating: 6/10
