IDK, maybe I'm doing something wrong but he seems pretty awful to me. I can't even.... How do you play him, guys?
2 gold reroll - ok
2 gold minion - awesome
but 2 gold start with? wtf? It's like A.F.Kay on LSD every game - wait, I'm going to make coffee, right after I make my coffee... huh, he's tier 4 alreday? :o nevermind, I can still once reroll and maybe buy a minon, oops GG
I know Sir Finley was bad - but at least he was playable...
Even if he sucked, at least he brings something new, something very fresh to the game.
Manastorm on the other side is pure suffering so far. Maybe if he could sell a minion for 2 gold too? Or give him that beta one trick ponny cheat: eg. 10 gold spell - give your minion +X/+X or deal X dmg to your opponent, whatever.
I wonder if anyone found MM realiable in any ways..
He’s certainly not the worst, and you can actually build a really strong early game with him. If you get a token turn one you can double buy on round 2. The key is to buy early and often, and avoid re-rolling until the late mid game. If you highroll early on with him you can power level pretty easily. He’s just a very different play style from the other heroes. I’ve picked him twice and got a couple top 3’s.
He's not amazing, but he's not that bad, I've had decent success with him.
I think he relies a ton on getting a token turn 1 though, which lets you sell the tokens on turn 2 and turn 4 to have an even amount of mana both those turns. If you do that, he can tier up to 2 on 2, then have six tier 2 units and tier up to 3 by turn 5. When he highrolls, he's actually really strong.
Personally, I think he should be changed to start with a coin in his hand, which would let him tier up on 2 every time, and make him much more consistent at getting out of the gate. He really suffers when you don't get a token on turn 1, because his late game is bad, and he needs a pretty big early game edge in order to be viable.
