Walnut Sprite Card Review

This seems like a more aggressive version of Phantom Militia, which I already didn’t like that much. Most of the slower decks, so the decks that could take advantage of being able to play it 3 times on Turn 9, would prefer the 2/4 Taunts over the 3/3’s. On the other hand, faster decks like Aggro or Midrange builds would rather play a stronger on-curve play than a vanilla 3/3. Yes, it’s playable, but it won’t likely win you games. On Turn 3 you want to push the tempo (…push the tempo, push the tempo), and on Turn 6 you want to look for a way to close out the game, and 2x 3/3 minion is definitely not it (I mean, Hunter has 2x 3/3 for 5 mana with the basic version of Lesser Emerald Spellstone and it’s bad until you upgrade it).

It’s an easy card to understand the Echo mechanic, but it doesn’t look good in Constructed – it’s a pack filler.

The only thing I like about it is the art! It looks so wacky. While I enjoy the beautiful art of some MTG or Gwent cards, the art in Hearthstone is great for a whole different reason.

Card rating: 2/10

    What does the sprite say when you play the card?

    It’s pretty cute, but at all mana costs you can play this at, there are better options.

    This is one of the “look at our new mechanic” cards that gets printed every expansion. Solid in Arena as most of them are, will never see Constructed play as none of them do.

    Very good Arena Card to get.

    Otherwise this Card is just there for the Noob Friendly Moments.

    It has some Synergy for Sea Giant, but I just don’t see it yet.

    Worse than the 2/4 Taunt with Echo. Pack filler. 1.5/5 stars.

      I don’t know, I definitely would not mind getting multiple of these in arena. You can play them early game for curve, and if you get them late game in top deck mode, it’s a 9 mana 9/9 spread across 3 bodies.
