I updated the Spreedsheet List for all the cards it could give per mana and what I think is good or bad. The update now contains the Karazhan cards.
Not much has changed percentage wise, only in the 2 mana slot really.

Oh man, got Al'Akir the Windlord 3 times today. Thanks, RNGesus!
I'm that kind of guy who gets Corrupted Seer evertytime he plays this with 6 mana.
are you gonna be the guy that gets Big-Time Racketeer now?
Not the most competitive card but it's certainly really fun to toy around with.
It is highly recommended to browse all the X-mana minions first to decide if that's worth it to use Shaping at X mana. For example, 7-mana minions include Baron Geddon, who could mess with your board, 2-mana has Doomsayer. 4-mana though has some sweet 5-6 (x2) and 7-7 minions.
It is forbidden to dust this one.
Been having a lot of fun with this card, there's lots of duds at any mana cost but its seemed worthwhile more times than not.
Getting Darnassus Aspirant when played on turn 2 will make you hate your life though. -_-
Really underestimated this card. Turns outherwise dead turns into potentially massive plays and the flexibility is just insane. Forbidden ancient is more reliable but also really vulnerable to silences, this one not so much. Just had a sylvannas spawn and singlehandidly win me the game near fatigue because warrior's last topdeck was deathwing lmao
Use it on turn 8 if you can
Forbidden shaping on 10 mana will summon a copy of your buffed c'thun if it summons c'thun. This just happened in my priest game.
depending on your other two picks, this could be a valuable choice in arena. This is the kind of card you want to see when you're in topdeck mode out of steam. It also fits a curve.
Considering how curving out is basically all that matters in arena, it's insane there.
This will be run in control.
The most reliable cost seems to be 10 since there's only 9 creatures it can be and most of them are either Old Gods or Deathwings.
Ragnaros the Firelord/Lightlord
This won't trigger Battlecry though, right?
