Is it a better or worse Forbidden Shaping? I think it's worse, pretty sure, since it's just a vanilla minion, unalterable in the same turn. Shaping at least has the ability to pull some cool helpful minion out of the hat.
I'm just another one of those. You know, those who do things. Things that need to be done by those that do these things in order to do those things that don't do these things themselves. Has the word 'things' lost meaning to you already?
So... an X/X for X mana that's incredibly weak to silence.
Silence is hilariously weak after the nerfs though.
That's not going to stop people from posting "weak to silence" on every single new card thread though, as if every game in the game with text (besides battlecries) wasn't affected by silence to an extent.
