    Now it looks like a good time to bring out the Banana buffon. Turn 3 play the buffoon to gain 2 spells plus potential 2 others in your hand then turn 4 play a 4 mana 5/6, then coin, buff 1/1 to 6/7

    What kind of deck is likely to have a bunch of spells in hand by turn 4? Control decks; they like spells, and they tend to hoard cards in hand. If you’re a control deck with a bunch of cards in hand… why exactly are you playing this instead of Twilight Drake or Mountain Giant? 2/5

    Mage and Hunter are the prime targets to run this heck any deck running twin spells can get away with this card since it takes 2 uses before spell leaves your hand.

    How is this rated so low? All you need is two spells in hand to make it playable (4 mana 9 stats). Any more and it leans toward broken. I think this is the sleeper card of the set!

    Probably can’t get enough spells consistently to be worth

      You can’t consistently have three or more spells in hand?

    Dunno why this is being rated low. With two spells in hand you get a 3/6, which is average for 4 mana. Any more than that and you’ll get good value. Seems like it should be a good fit for any spell-heavy midrange deck with card draw, such as small spell Mage.

    Spend turns 1-3 developing your hand. Turn 4, play this to bait out removal. Turn 5, go nuts with Questing Adventurer or whatever.

    No. We tried it with Mastermind or whatever it was called from Ratakan’s Rumble, and we forgot that card Existed. and so will this card. 1 sta– Actually, you know what? Priest with Inner Fire and Divine Spirit.

    Alright fine, 3 Stars, but PURLY because of Divine Spirit Priest.

      You can’t judge this set’s cards by the current meta, because set rotation always means a giant drop in overall power, and Blizzard has made it clear that this year’s sets won’t be as OP as Year of the Mammoth.

        You need 3 spells in your hand to make this card decent, and a heavy-spell deck doesn’t need strong board presence. It’s just bad

          Small Spell Mage will 100% be a thing with this set, and that’s an archetype that specifically builds a large board presence using spells.

      theres much better low-cost targets than this if you want to divine inner fire. eg. twilight drake

      Divine spirit priest wouldn’t bother with this since there’s a 2 cost 0/6 making a possible turn 5 12/12.
