Varden Dawngrasp is a 4 Mana Cost Legendary Mage Minion card from the Forged in the Barrens set!
Battlecry: Freeze all enemy minions. If any are already Frozen, deal 4 damage to them instead.
Flavor TextVarden Dawngrasp could wield fire, summon hailstorms, and morph a night elf into a sheep with a snap of their fingers. Knowing how malleable reality could be, certain labels felt downright trivial.

Uber Nova man! He looks great, and I love the effect. I sincerely love this card.
So this is why they rotate board freeze (Blizzard, Frost Nova) because they think it’s not good for Mage to have a lot option to freeze the board. Just one for the game huh.
Freeze Mage still alive, but it’s not really that good anymore. They really need a few win conditions as Burn spells no longer an option.
Is that what they said? I thought they removed all the freeze to open up design space – for new, ‘temporary’ freeze cards!?
It is for me. It seems that way. Opening up design space, but printing a card like this is not really improving anything (worsen more likely). It’s kinda like a body with frost nova on a stick and you only have 1 of it.
Yeah, but it’s so good tho. You can delay the game, have a body behind, and even deal some damage if your deck has multiple ways to freeze. What’s not to love.
So, you either get a Free Frost Nova or side orders of Ice Lances along with a 3/3 Body for 4 Mana? Sign Mage right up. I thought about the copypasta idea of Paladin, becuase I felt the same power, where I could just rate as 5 Stars (which actually do deserve it), but I’m starting to get a feeling that we’ll probably get like maybe 1 to 2 more of these cards with such power, and if I want to rate them also 5 stars.
Now granted, this is a 4 mana 3/3 with a FREE Frost Nova. There’s nothing wrong you can do about that. I only wished I gave that Paladin legendary like maybe 4 stars of something, I don’t know, but, regardless, this card is universal.
Kazakus is crying at all these 4 mana legendaries
Certainly makes flurry somewhat better, especially 5 mama +
