    Payoff for playing midrange elemental is good, because this card is excellent.

    As to whether it can carry the whole archetype that's another question entirely. Because we can already see the main issue with this payoff. You need to consistently drop an elemental every turn, and in 2023 doing something like that usually will get you destroyed by aggro.

    We'll have to see whether there's enough good elementals incoming to truly judge whether this thing can fly. From what Ive seen, its likely to end up like pirate rogue at the start of sunken city: Good enough, but falls flat very quickly as the meta develops.

    My first thought on looking at a card like this is whether you can use it for lethal. Yeah, in a long, control match-up where you play an elemental every turn for 20 turns or so, this might make lethal, but that's not happening often. On the other hand, just using this as a board clear with some face damage thrown in will still be pretty good. Elemental Shaman is looking better and better!

    This looks strong, assuming you can build a good deck with enough elementals that you can get decent damage with this. Like maybe play ten elementals in a row.
