    This is how a well balanced class common should look.

    Sweet turn 10 play with Earthen Might, although I don’t know if there is a deck that wants to include both cards.

    Control Shaman might actually play 2 of those alongside Zilliax.

    The control is real. Also this is 16 heath swing for 8 mana. 5/5

      It is an eight health swing, not sixteen. You cannot count both its heath once and it’s attack twice, because it has to attack into a minion and the only time it’s heath won’t reduce from that is if it attacks a zero attack minion. If that was your meaning you should have been more specific.

    This it’s actually a semi decent and cheap alternative for al’akir in even shaman (yes ik it’s rotating) for ppl that don’t want to spend the dust on al’akir.

      Al’akir is a classic card. It was not listed in rotating to the Hall of Fame (the only place and time classic cards rotate). Kalimos and Grumble are both rotating, perhaps you meant one of them. Please do some/more research before stating things you think to be fact, otherwise people might take what you say as fact when it isn’t. Opinions are fine, but people should not be allowed to put disinformation on this site. Reason being that it is hurtful to people who take you at your word rather than fact checking your comments. Yes people should actually check a valid and reputable site to confirm what’s rotating, but even still, what you are doing is potentially harmful to the Hearthstone community that plays Standard. For those who have looked at it here is a link that shows what is rotating, and a crafting guide to maximize your dust if you do so prior to April 9th 2019: https://www.hearthstonetopdecks.com/guides/hearthstone-standard-rotation-schedule-guide/ Please read all of this information carefully before crafting any cards in golden so that you what’s best in your situation first.

        Made some slight errors in that last post. Hopefully people “read between the lines” the “have” toward the bottom should be “haven’t” and last sentence should say “do what’s best in your situation first”. Also when I say opinions are fine, that is assuming nothing hurtful or overly derogatory is put in said opinions. This is all likely deduced by most people who read this, but it is nonetheless here for those who haven’t/didn’t.

        I think he meant that Even Shaman is rotating, not that Al’Akir is rotating.

    Can’t wait to Lazul’s Scheme, Shadow Madness, Divine Spirit+Inner Fire this for a 32 dmg OTK as Priest.

      It’s a shaman card….. plus really? You want more otk priest?

        Did you even read my comment? lol… Or did you just see “Priest” and assume that I thought this was a Priest card.

        The combo I’m talking about is steeling an opponents minion with Shadow Madness + Lazul’s Scheme and then using the Divine Spirit Inner Fire combo as a finisher. The Divine Spirit/Inner Fire combo isn’t really an OTK deck as it relies on a large body minion sticking.

          Ooooooohhhhh, lol sorry I have a personal hatred of priest, but that actually makes sense now lel ????

    It isn’t broken. Solid control card that has an immediate impact on board, and has to be answered most of the time. Probably won’t see Mich play outside of control shaman, I would imagine.

    Cleans up enemy minions, heals you up, and leaves a body behind for your opponent to deal with. Looks to me like Control Shaman is going to be a thing in 2019. 5/5

    Seems like a reasonable replacement for Healing Rain for slower Shaman decks. I can see both control and midrange shaman running this. Also really scary if it sticks. And a reasonable pull from Muckmorpher

    lightning can strike twice apparently :D. We are looking at a great arena card. its basicly 8/8 rush lifesteal. and it is elemental. I think shamans are most likely to have elementals anyway they are full of them.
    It can even see play in constructed as w ehav eseen lightning watcher in some decks Althout in wild you have a bit better options like khalimos, grumble etc. But this gives you a ton of value 8 mana heal for 8 and deal 8 dmg to the board is nuts.
    As for wild i don’t see this making the cut in the gen decks as they have a ton of great cards. And i don’t think shaman will play anything else than gen in wild.
    Great card to discover. Tons of value and it is worth the cost. with the loss of the lich king the 8 mana slot is clear for some option and this may as well be one of them. There is tons of letover synergy with elementals for shaman and this will make the cut.

    Scary card that may as well have taunt. It reminds of a rexxar beast Hunter would guarantee to get when you have lethal on board.

    Control decks will happily play this, especially since the rotation of Healing Rain and Tidal Surge leave Shaman with no class healing (other than Omega Mind…). And he serves as a big threat against other control decks (even more dangerous if you picked up Bloodlust or Rockbiter from Hagatha).

    Probably too expensive for Midrange Elemental, but we’ve seen those decks willing to drift to the lategame (by including Shudderwock and Hagatha). So maybe!

    Walking Fountain looks like a pretty reasonable bigger version of Zilliax for Shaman. If slower Shaman decks are worth playing, this will be part of it.

    Eight healing, instant impact on the board, likely two or three for one advantage generator, and a serious threat if it manages to survive. Everything a control deck wants.

    Late Game Zilliax expect it doesn’t cost you 1600 Dust. Although It’s not as flexible as Zilliax since he is 5 Mana, and Walking Foutain is 8, it’s still going to see some play for both Midrange and Control Shaman.

    This card seems cool, but the name doesn’t match the picture at all! It looks nothing like a fountain, but more like a Kobold rock monster. Also, no legs so it can’t walk

      it is the the statue in the dalaran fountain. Although it is a unique building and it totally deserves to be a legendary card. If you knwo what you are looking at this is the statue turned to elemental that is leaving the fountain.

        Gotcha, that makes a lot more sense!

        Being a statue in the Dalaran fountain, shouldn’t this card be mage or neutral? As the city of Dalaran is protected by mages. Only ways this fits the storyline is if hagatha animates one of the statues in Dalaran, as I doubt any of her minions have magic strong enough to do that, also she seems to be the big cheese of the shaman world in this story arc, so I doubt there is someone above her in the shaman class.

    This is a ridiculous card now evolves have possibility to pull out another 8 cost monster add in the elemental tag and things get crazier toss this into wild and you have 2 of the boosts for corpsetaker on one card that’s not a Lego which was an issue with it since if you drew the Lynch cards you miss out. Maybe build into a wild even shaman.

    great card but not sure it will see a lot of play… 4/5.

    Great synergy with Earthern might and fits perfectly in the current Elemental/Overload/Shudderwock midrange shell https://www.hearthstonetopdecks.com/decks/midrange-overload-shaman-rise-of-shadows-theorycraft/
