    This is pretty tame. At best, it's a free 5/5 potentially pretty early. That's alright, but nothing to scream about. Ooh, unless it's a 10/10 thanks to Therazane, but then it's not coming down early.

    Its actually funny to me how a zero mana 5/5 these days can be considered unviable but there it is.

    The card is actually very powerful, because of course it is, its practically zero mana in any turn above 4, assuming you actually have this in hand by turn 1. Even if its not, you can easily swing board with this card at any time after an AoE.

    Problem? Well, its redundant for one thing. Mage doesnt need stats because their win con is sif 9/10 times. And hunter cant ever reliably spend so much spells, and this card is only zero mana if its in your hand while you do it

    In other words, its a strong card, maybe like 6 years ago it would have been OP as hell. But we arent in those times anymore.

    Comparable to Desert Nestmatron, which does see play, but possibly only because of the Taunt and Dragon tag. It is possible that the Elemental and Naga tags will make this relevant.

    I'm not ready to count this out just yet.

    Seems like trash. Needs to see you cast 5 spells, which can be slow even in mage. I don't think this sees play.

    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.
