With those big ass pecs, how does it only have 6 health and attack?!
Pretty much standard after i've had a hot curry! Play > Attack > Death!
I was so sad when I got 2 loses with 0 win in arena then I retire it. After I opened my pack, I guess I wasn't sad anymore
If you can get some dust and create another Igneous Elemental, that Blazecaller would do extremely well
If you wanna retire a list at least enter the last game and concede instantly. Help a fellow player out and give them a free win.
Nice pack though! congrats.
Anyone else find this card slightly overhyped? I tried it out in mage and shaman and found 2 faults with it:
1) Most of the time you don't know if you're gonna need the 5 damage next turn. You don't wanna just throw it down to deal 5 to the face or kill a 2-2 minion.
2) Many times you're not in the position to play an elemental every turn to ensure it's activated when you need it the most. Not unless you're playing a deck filled with elementals but pure elemental decks seem sub-par. I've had more success just splashing a fire fly and good mage and shaman class elementals so I can activate Kalimos and Servant of Kalimos, which seem to be the best conditional elementals.
I've found success with it in my tempo mage deck, which has something like 8 elementals in it plus a couple of tribals with battlecries activated by summoning a minion the turn before. Just curious, what's your highest rank?
What's my rank got to do with it? Been to legend once with c'thun warrior back in old gods, rank 5 since then. Pure elemental decks are still not that great and in a mixed deck you'll sometimes have trouble activating it at a precise time.
You might have misunderstood me, I'm not saying it's a bad card, it just fell slightly short because pure elemental shaman/mage are not meta busters. They're just "fair" decks in a world where other decks have "unfair" mechanics and playing just slightly above curve minions is actually nothing special.
Or you stop whining, actually grind a bit of gold, get some packs and save up 800 dust. It's not that hard.
Blazerunner. This should have been called Blazerunner...
Feel the Bern, you say?
His play sound sounds like the SMOrc voice.
He sounds like Scooby Doo!
An obvious core for any elemental deck, too bad it is an epic, it is unnescesearly restrictive for new players and F2P. For us others it means we realy want to save 800 for playset, when the expansion hit. Or get lucky with the pack openings.
Yea guess nobody care about arena balance
Random Firelands Portal ranging from broken AF Earth elemental to 2/2: "lose if playing aggro" = common
Consistent synergistic Firelands Portal requiring proper deck building and play = epic
What a great game for new players.
To be fair we can't judge firelands portal since it is uncraftable. It's an adventure card. That means you can only obtain it by buying it's wing, which means it's rarity isn't very influencal outside of arena.
Also as for consistent, no it's not. I very often find myself without a trigger for this card, even when properly saving smaller elementals to be able to proc effects.
What are you talking about? I managed to craft Firelands Portal without completing the adventure when I started playing the game about a month ago. I have two of them now for my deck.
so you wont get a dead or broken card in arena
Except they increased the frequency of epics, so that point is moot, and they could have just made it a rare. Also, you will probably draft a decent amount of elementals since Un'Goro will get an expansion bonus.
