    Still confused about Holy Fire … why no 2nd Crowd Roaster? Is face potential that important? Or heal 5? I always find this card to be very mediocre when I play it.

      Holy Fire is a removal spell which you can find with Shadow Visions. Also the heal is quite important and additional face damage is very nice.

      I like Holy Fire, I’ve played a list with 2 of them for a while, but it was too much. I think that 1 is optimal spot.

      It’s basically a mix of everything. Crowd Roaster can only be used as a minion removal, and in slow mathchups you have almost no way to connect 7/4 with face, because it dies (sure, it still often gets 2 for 1, but you aren’t playing a value game anyway). Holy Fire is a guaranteed 5 damage to the face, which can also be used as a minion removal.

      And healing also helps, A LOT. I won many games thanks to the 5 healing part, especially against Aggro, but even vs slower decks. Once you turn into Anduin and you push face damage, you have almost no on-board tempo, so they start damaging you. 5 healing can give you another turn, and each turn is a extra damage.

      I often set up a 2 turns lethal with Holy Fire. HP + HF + HP is first turn = 9 damage and 5 healing means that I both make my opponent much lower AND have a much higher chance of surviving. Then next turn you go HP + Mind Blast + HP + MB + HP = 16 damage. 25 damage over 2 turns, which is usually enough to kill someone who isn’t a Warrior or Druid. Without Holy Fire, I would run out of burn to kill them quite regularly.

      That’s why I think that 1 copy is optimal. 2 are too clunky, but 1 is great.
