    How to pull off an easy twenty-damage combo with just three cards:

    1. Have the Corrupt the Waters quest completed.

    2. Activate Heart of Vir'naal.

    3. Play Lightning Bloom.

    4. Unleash the lightning with your two Cumulo-Maximus.

    You get bonus points for playing as Lei Shen since this combo is already pretty on-brand with the lightning theme.

    Obviously broken.

    They nerfed Innervate for a reason. Now that there are so many other strong cards that revolve around combos, this card will be game-breaking.

    They're going to have to nerf it, but I don't really see how they can nerf it at this point...

      The most likely possibility would be to rephrase the card as: "The next minion you play this turn costs (2) less. Overload: (2)". Credit for this idea goes to Kibler since his recommendation for the Innervate nerf was to make the extra mana only applicable to minions. This would prevent Druid from ramping into Overgrowth as well as the class's ability to chain into more spells.

    I honestly believe that this will end up breaking the game somehow. A lot of cards have been released since INnervate was nerfed that would have been pretty crazy we get it back...with a minor downside (as in, if whatever you're pulling off with this puts you far enough ahead then the Overload won't matter)

    it's a strong card, will definitely see plays in ramp and combo, the overload is barely an issue

    Ok, so we will see the return of combo decks, probably both Wild and Standard. 

    I hope Malygos will be fine after all the hate he will suffer.
