I'm just another one of those. You know, those who do things. Things that need to be done by those that do these things in order to do those things that don't do these things themselves. Has the word 'things' lost meaning to you already?
This card is nuts. After the BGH nerf, this is how Mage will kill big minions for tempo. It's also a huge buff to all Freeze Effects, especially Frost Nova. WIth Blizzard + Shatter, Mage now has an 8 mana 2 card MEGA-Swipe.
With all the new really huge minions, getting cheap hard removal like that puts Mage ahead quite a bit, especially since other classes just had nerfs to their removal (Hunter's Mark) or had it rotate out (Sabotage).
