    This style of cards worked pretty well in Paladin and was ok in Mage (but those were random not replay, with replay you have much more control) so can be good if here is any kind of good combination of fel spells

    This looks decent. Kind of like a mix between Solarian Prime and Zul'jin. I think with the right mix of spells you can end up with a consistently good result out of it.

    Unfortunately, common sense isn't as common as it should be.

    It could be better, and could actually get better as dhunters get more fel spells worth casting.

    At the moment, the only thing this card can do is to finish games, and dhunters have plenty of those already - not to mention that this one comes with a condition that you need to actually draw and play those spells first.

    Im not that optimistic at the moment, but no doubt this can change once more dhunter cards gets revealed. Team5 dont usually print legendaries without some form of support.

    This looks powerful, and it has potential to be even stronger when better Fel spells arrive for DH. Just being able to cast Fury (Rank 1), Chaos Strike, and Eye Beam for free in the late game makes this a good finisher. That said, this might be more of a win-more card right now because DH has a better finisher in Illidari Inquisitor, but Jace Darkweaver's power can't be denied.

    Looking at current Fel Spells for Demon Hunter, it's mostly AoE with Felscream Blast, Immolation Aura, and Chaos Nova, but there is Chaos Strike and Fury (Rank 1).

    Probably sees play in slower Demon Hunter decks as a nuke and recovery that you naturally built over the course of the game, but let's be honest, even the slow Demon Hunter decks want to focus on bashing their opponent's face in.

    Depends on other Fel spells in the set however withChaos Strike and Fury (Rank1) you could hit someone really hard on turn 8. Then Illidari Inquisitor and hero power for another good hit next turn. Any other fell spells used to try and clear out taunts as the targets are mostly enemies. Other noteable spells Felosophy and Mana Burn just to set up more Illidari and thwart a counter attack. Wandmaker could even add to that. 

    I can see this fitting in well into current Illidari DHs for sure. Definitely very strong.

    Can be a solid finisher for a DH deck.

    First thing that came to mind was burst damage. I think this card will become part of an OTK package in future expansion. For now, it looks solid but not an amazing card with the current fel spell pool.

    Most of the Fel spells are either very cheap or hit your entire board. Its main uses seem to be to get another Metamorphosis and double up on your Chaos Strike and Fury (Rank 1) for a lot of burst in the lategame, but it does require you to play all of those first. It has the potential to be bonkers with even just a single expensive good Fel spell though.

    Reminds me of Solarian Prime, but generally worse spells. Potentially a lot of value for 8 mana though.

    Reminds me a little of Yogg or even Solarian Prime ... defenitely interesting and with Cards like Fury this could give you some insane Damage Boost.

    For now this seems like an AOE boardclear, you hero gets some attack and you probably draw 2 cards. For 8 mana thats pretty nice. Jace Darkweaver kinda gives me Tess Greymane vibes, but Jace Darkweaver works only with fel spells. Oh i just noticed Mana Burn also works with Jace Darkweaver... that's annoying. 

    I bet were going to see a lot more fel spell support for DH, and even if we do not see any support any time we do get a new fell spell in the future can make Jace Darkweaver a lot stronger.

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    Assuming we're getting a decent amount of new Fel spells and assuming some of those are damage boosts of some sort then this could be a legit finisher in...some kind of deck. I have no idea what that could be, but gaining a ton of attack and smacking your opponent with it sounds pretty good.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    with the standar cards, you can deal 14 dmg to the enemy with that card, Metamorphosis, Chaos Strike and Fury (Rank 3). And 14 dmg are a lot of dmg, i hope that no more fel attack buffs will be printed that set.

    So I guess we get to see some new Fel spells for Demon Hunter this expansion. As of now this isn't really worth it. The primary spell that you want to recast is Metamorphosis, but that isn't really a meta card at the moment.

    Looking at the current Fel spells in DH, aside from random board control shenanigans like Chaos Nova or Immolation Aura which just don't see play these days, there's just Fury (Rank 1) and Chaos Strike as the best card targets, making Jace Darkweaver just a worse Illidari Inquisitor as far as finishers go.

    I can expect some extra Fel support and I can actually expect said Fel support to be rather underwhelming as to not make this card way too broken.

    Rating cards on coolness factor rather than predicting power because I like screwing up rating averages (and because I suck at predicting real power levels, but we'll ignore that LUL)

    Regardless if this legendary is good or not, I'm so excited to try it! And with each new mini-set and expansion, there will be more Fel spells to play with. Here's hoping Blizzard printed a high cost Fel spell to release with this guy.

    This card is great! As noted above, most Fel spells are board clear and add to your hero's attack, so playing this could easily equal a clear board and 12 to face. Plus, we haven't seen any other new cards for DH yet, so there are bound to be some good Fel spells coming.

    This may be the card that gets me to play demon hunter. I love big payoff cards like this that encourage unique deck building. Hopefully this opens some doors for demon hunter to play some slower archetypes.
