United in Stormwind Cards List & Guide
Deal 2 damage.Unlock your Overloaded Mana Crystals.
Chocolate lava cake is shockingly delicious.
WITNESS THE POWER OF PURE WATER!
They should call this card Neptulon Unleashed.
Reincarnate can cause some nasty combos!
Alot of decks run 2 earth shocks or 2 ancestor spirits. Could easily sub one of those out for a lava shock. This card is definitely not meh, it provides the shaman much needed flexibility when using his spells.
Oh, my mistake I meant to say Feral Spirit and earthshocks can sometimes be dead in your head without a good silence target.
Cards like Feral spirit and Lighting storm are great, but their overload in the early game can be painfully especially if you are forced to keep using them to solidify your board or deal with threats. At the same time, it'll help keep your tempo up, as the main point of lava shock is to be able to use those cards, along with heavier overload cards such as Earth elemental without being gunked up mana wise. As for it being dead card, that's actually pretty untrue. Earth shocks often end up being dead cards (especially late game) since, even though you silence a minion, 1 dmg doesn't always kill it. Lava shock's two dmg can deal with threats like Flame imp, Knife Juggler or even slime and actually remove it. And, unlike earth shock, it appears from the card text that you can actually target the enemy hero, so its not as situational or dead as you say.
I guess you do, since from what i've seen and heard its considered the worst, lol.
No, what it basically does is "unlock your overloaded mana to deal 2 dmg AND play other cards", which for a class, as you wrote, needs as much value as possible is so very important. Efficient removal in comparison? Lol, like what? Lighting bolt and forked lightings? Not even used because of how bad they are with the overload. Lava burst? 3 mana for a 5 dmg is great but the 2 overload kills it early game. The only overload cards used consistently are crackle, feral, lighting storm and doom hammer. I guess you can say time will tell, but its already clear this card is going to be used.
Whoa! A playable Shaman card! it was confirmed that it clears the overload for both the current turn and the following turn.
That's amazing... imagine having used a doomhammer on turn 6, then a feral spirit or lightning storm + this on turn 7 cleaning both overload for turn 8 AND having 2 spare mana for, say summoning a flametongue or rockbiter weapon to hit enemy's face.
Pretty impressive actually.
Definitely running two Azure Drake and a Bloodmage Thalnos with this card :D
Pretty sure most Shamans use three slots on those cards regardless.
This could potentially be really strong - just not in a current deck type. Nice to see we're getting cards that lead to new deck archetypes, things like Earth Elemental suddenly become a lot more viable.
i think it will be used in 1 slot
Time for HEAVY Shaman!!! YES!!!!! Here comes EARTHY ELEMENTAL!!! Oh yeahy!!!
