    I’m just disappointed that you can’t Brann Bronzebeard or Murmering Elemental combo with this card.

    So u get a 3/5 with flare…whoopie…unless they add some major minion buff for him he’s not game winning..shaman and hunter are getting screwed which makes no sense hunter is the weakest class and shaman really isn’t that much better. When your win condition is sheer luck , that’s not a win condition..and before everyone says ..but what about primal fusion at best it’ll be +4/4 assuming you have the mana and luck to get all 4 totems to stick..and that isn’t going to happen it’s to easy to control the board against totem shaman it’s been done before. Didn’t work then won’t work now..they need to work on elemental shaman that’s the only hope for a top meta shaman.. and hunter needs too much to even get into…

    It seems pretty insane value but hard to do.
    Comparing it to scalebane would be pretty decent way to make sure its powerlevel.

    Considering scalebane would enjoy having 1-4 totems on board as well, id say scalebane is more reliable way to get that extra damage.

    I think this card should just be “if you control 4 totems”, because it doesnt have much synergy with flametongue etc and board will be practically full of useless totems even if you have al’akir and this.

    2/5, i dont see much play for this

    i found a way to meme deck this, only in wild though. okay so you need to get all four totems there are cards to help you but find your way around it and then you need 10 mana and then bloodlust in hand and brann bronzebeard in hand and the Windshear stormcaller in hand then you play emperor thaurissan. you then play brann for 2 mana then windshear stormcaller for 4 mana which will summen 2 alakir that you will bloodlust for 4 mana. 24 damage with just the 2 alakir.

      But to play this card you also need all 4 totems out. 4 totems+1 brann+1 of this+2 Al’Akir=8; you can only have 7 minions on board at once.

    The game plan for this card:

    Turn 1: Coin + Hero Power
    Turn 2: Hero Power
    Turn 3: Hero Power
    Turn 4: Hero Power
    Turn 5: Your totems are probably dead, push the concede button.

    This game plan can only work if you have the coin.

      Totally agree!

      Myabe in wild with tuskarr totemic it has a chance…

      • CD001

        Or Wicked Witchdoctor with nonsense like Totemic Might and Primal Fusion – might be possible to get all Totems on turn 4 (with the coin) ready for a T5 Windshear Stormcaller drop.

        Totem synergy with Thing From Below and Thunder Bluff Valiant as well, who used to be a staple in mid-range Shaman decks a while back… Dranei Totemcarver still won’t be great though.

          burgly bully+witchdoctor can do it but still hard to do

      With Brann + 2 of these new totem spawning cards + a bit of luck you can get up to 2 Al’Akirs immediately

      • Zodiark
        December 1, 2017 at 10:11 pm

        Unfortunately not, due to the limit of 7 minions on a battlefield at one time.

        4 Totems + Bran + Windshear = 6

        Hence there would only be room for one Al’Akir.

    This cards best potential is memes, unless some totem evolve shaman becomes a thing. That being said, who doesn’t like memes? It’ll be fun to try to make some midrange shaman with evolve as a backup strategy, maybe not practical for ladder, but ill definitely enjoy making some midrange shamans with this and grumble.

    Lol. Shaman is getting screwed this expansion.

    • Logic
      November 27, 2017 at 11:05 pm

      Yep a 6 mana 7/7 followed by two 1-mana blazecallers is really bad

      • Spyder9899
        November 28, 2017 at 12:45 am

        I’m not buying that legendary just yet. I might be wrong but I don’t think it’s that good. If the best part of a legendary is that its a 6 mana 7/7, then yeah, not so good. And if you had 2 blazecallers on board before playing this, most likely you’re already winning.

        Crap legendary weapon and cards pushing this swarm totem thing, yeah, not a good expansion for shaman.

          Turn five, play death knight, you get a bunch of interesting minions
          Turn six, reload them. You have a chance to at least exploit a battlecry or overall just heal them.

    Worst epic of the set. Absolute garbage.

    • Khajit
      November 27, 2017 at 2:26 pm

      No, It’s just a 5 mana 5/5, so not even close

    • 8BitBrain
      November 27, 2017 at 3:45 pm

      I disagree, a 5 mana 5/5 is bad, but playable. It isn’t a card like cataclysm, where it’s often generating terrible value at best.

  13. Imaloony
    November 27, 2017 at 1:12 pm

    Well, the good news is twofold: Firstly, a 5 mana 5/5 isn’t that bad on its own. Obviously you’d never play a 5 mana 5/5 vanilla, but with the right text, this card can become super good. Now obviously 5 mana for a 5/5 AND Al’Akir is absolutely insane. But the condition of needing all 4 basic totems on the board… oof. And there’s no real good way to cheat this out even with Wicked Witchdoctor, because that CAN summon duplicate totems. Unfortunately, you’re going to need to compromise your deck and bend too far backwards to make this even a possibility of happening, and too likely the setup will get your killed, and the reward isn’t even enough to win the game on its own. So this isn’t happening in standard.

    In Arena the effect will obviously almost never go off, but a 5 mana 5/5 isn’t too bad of a body. And any time you DO get the battlecry off, you’ll probably just win. It’s a low pick, but it’s not a card you’ll feel bad about picking even if you do have to pick it up.

    Standard: 1/5
    Arena: 2/5

      This should be a menace in wild with true heart and tuskarr and thunder bluff and other stuff. Seems week in standard, although there could be more totem related cards coming out

    November 27, 2017 at 1:04 pm

    At least it isn’t a 5 mana 4/4 or something. Could be viable depending on how hard a totem archetype is pushed. The existence of this card should alter the way that people interact with opposing shamans on ladder.

    Its a pretty ok card… not fantastic but not horrible… its not great in constructed but arena wise… great vanilla 5 mana 5/5…

    Constructed: 2/5

    Arena: 4/5

    If they made more cards with if you control all four basic totems could be a fun deck

  17. Tyramir
    November 27, 2017 at 12:16 pm

    It’s interesting, but going wide on board right now is a bad game plan with Spreading Plague. Druid laughs at Evolve Shaman’s game plan as it is. Now you want to fill your board with totems, which are even more useless, on the off chance of getting Al’Akir on 5? Especially with Priest’s new dragon coming out? Doesn’t seem like a viable game plan.

    Is it fun? Probably. I’d love to meme it. But I don’t see it being competitive.

  18. Crapcrack
    November 27, 2017 at 11:35 am

    Not a good card, it’s very hard to get all 4 totems and make them stick on the board. Even with the new cards. Plus having the new Shaman totem cards in ur deck really makes it worse, they are just not good. I would not play a 5/5 that very rarely summons Al’akir.

    Cool, but we’ll have three months of primal fusion before it cycles out. Kind of late to push a totem shaman deck type no?

    • Mitpaul
      November 27, 2017 at 11:20 am

      Maybe, unless the next expansion that apears after cards gets cycled out gives totem shaman even more suport wich is most likely going to happen unless Blizzard gives up on it early.

          I’m free to play and only started playing around old gods, so this will be the first cycle where I really lose some of my collection. Maybe Wild will be where I live from now on.
