    So you play Big Spell Druid and then this is just a free 5/5 on turn 6. Classic Druid I guess, but at least the mana cheating is hard-locked to 6-mana.

    Also there'S some cost reduction Alignment bullshit just waiting to happen. let's hope that deck is dead for good.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Isn't it the synergy with Alignment negative in this instance ?

    Because you would only get one mana back anyway ?

    Even if you managed to generate some heavy-costed spell after setting cost; you would still be set back by having reset max. mana crystal to 1.


    Don't get me wrong : I have no doubt someone will manage to pull a lot of value out of this.  But I don't expect it to be more broken than its spiritual predecessors.

    Hopefully, it will be a sanest Khun, for a sanest Standard : A bit faster at 6-mana, but more nuanced - due to being dependent from your hand's content -.

    Pretty sure it's supposed to replace Celestial Alignment (which was never that good anyway), not have synergy with it. I'm just very glad Guardian Animals and Survival of the Fittest are both leaving.

    I do not see the synergy with this card.  At best, its a 0 mana 5-5, which honestly isn't even that strong anymore.  Antisynergy with Celestial Alignment, and not much with the tempo side of naga midrange.

    Well the good news is that there aren't a whole lot of Druid spells that Cost 6 or more, so the odds that Druid can play this as a "free" 5/5 are a lot lower than they might otherwise have been. That being said, we know that Blizzard will eventually print more big spells for Druid, so I guess we gotta watch out.

    I have spoken.

    I dont know how, but this card will blow up wild and then in standard at a different time.

    I mean, its practically Forest Warden Omu in most cases.

    Looks like a decent mana cheat for druid!

    So if you play this naga while there's a 10 mana spell in hand, you're basically getting 4 extra mana for free. Ofc this won't happen in standard as Survival of the Fittest is rotating but there's always the next 2 expansions and mini-sets to add more big spells.

    Just depends in big spell druid is viable on rotation

    Wow Big spell druid support, this will be soo good alongside Survival of the Fittest! Oh wait, that rotates.... Actually druids have a really shallow 6+ mana spell pool after rotation. Celestial Alignment, Scale of Onyxia, Miracle Growth and Best in Shell are the only 6+ mana cards in standard, and are basically the only card you want to run Green-Thumb Gardener with. Honesty i'm not 100% certain about this card RIGHT NOW, but when it gets any support it might be a really good card.

    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.

    Was Druid gaining any mana ramp to make up for the loss of Overgrowth? This may not be a substitute, but it could potentially double the amount of mana you can spend in one turn.

    I'm really unsure about Druid's Naga package but ...

    Basically a free 5/5 in Ramp Druid, could even play cheaper spells first before reloading back to full mana in the right circumstances.

    Seems like a strong card. It should be easy enough to at least make it a free 5/5, so I can see it being ran in spell Druid!
