    In the spirit of the card, I will make a proper comment when I am replied with 3 'candles' (i.e. 3 different people reply with anything, preferably candle related). For now my comment is dormant...

    This could take a very long time.

      OK, so Blizzard expedited the process with their announcement of The Darkness no longer appearing in random transformations; essentially they played Stowaway (not advisable against The Darkness BTW!).

      Anyway, I'd like people to imagine the perfect comment, and how it puts a smile on everyone's face, even stirring respect and envy from those who disagree with it (let's call such people 'opponents'). Then, with it standing majestic before you, it is shot down, stunned, utterly disrespected and stabby stab stabbed to death.

      But things with so much build up rarely pay off. Sometimes the anticipation is more interesting than the end result, and the midst of reveal season is the perfect time to make that point. The Darkness isn't good competitively, but it is nevertheless one of the coolest cards in Hearthstone, and can make a game feel interesting for both players even when it flops hard.

      Your hand is full. 3rd candle disappears.

      Just kidding, have that last candle.
