The wording is wtf? It can only hit one thing and freezes last 1 turn, how could it possibly destroy all minions.
Who signed off on this vague sketchy and inconsistent card? My 2y/o could write a clearer description.
PS. If shaman is getting more frozen love I do like that direction both with the lich and elemental themes. Just not like this...
Well control shaman has always been one of my fav archetypes in a class. So this is good. If this hard removal theme keeps coming like with plague scientist one thing's for sure, priest is getting shit on since they'll never be able to build a board.
This is gonna be op just like shatter was!!! This is like 3 shatters in 1, 6 mana value in a 3 mana weapon. What was blizzard thinking printing a card this OP, This is gonna be so meta defining. I'm totally gonna craft a golden verison of this as soon as it comes out. This is gonna make pirate warrior look like a joke.
3 mana for a 1/3 weapon is absolutely abysmal in terms of raw stats. 1 Attack weapons tend to be poor in general, and 3 mana is incredibly expensive for such poor damage output. So this card has a lot to make up from it's text.
Freeze effects are already powerful tempo swings on their own. This card's effect turns them into ridiculous tempo swings by turning them into conditional hard removal. Currently Shaman only has Frost Shock in terms of class-only Freezes; thankfully a cheap one. Glacial Shard and Frost Elemental round out the rest of the package; again decent, but not fantastic. This card is probably hinting at a few more Freeze effects to look forward too.
I feel that in a world where Shaman already has Hex this card serves almost no purpose. Shaman isn't starving for removal options so much as to be desperate enough to run crappy two-card combos. The effects is too conditional and a 1/3 weapon for 3 mana is a joke.
