I think it’s funny cause most people on here will say Barnes in wild is still to high rolley OP garbage, but putting 7 Murlocs on the board turn 4 with 40+ dmg and 4-5hp each worth of stats is okay. And the logic is that warrior has brawl so it’s okay. Or they lose if they don’t have it by turn 6-7, which isn’t even really true. There are only a couple classes that can deal with that turn 4 move and if your dead the next turn there is no counter play or fighting your way back into the game it’s just over turn 5 from 100% to zero. I don’t think it’ll be nerfed but I do think the design is dog shit. Unlike late game OTK’s, this doesn’t give you 10+ turns and 15+ cards to win or prepare.it gives you 9 cards and only 3 classes have the chance in those 9 cards to clear the board.
Is there some reason you necro'ed this idiotic thread?
Prismatic Lens is a card very unhealthy for the game, and has a similar highroll potential to Barnes, Naga Sea Witch, LPG or Conjurer's Calling. You may say 'yeah, but you may just not draw it'. Well, that was the case for the other cards I mentioned, and they still were extremely unfun to play against. I think nerfing Lens to 5 mana would be enough for most control classes to be able to somehow answer the board full of Murlocs (Blizzard, Holy Nova, Brawl, Warpath + Plague of Wrath etc.). Losing to such a stupid highroll card isn't fun and while Murloc Paladin is a deck that has counters and yes, they may not draw the Lens, the game should be mostly about fun, and Tip the Scales on turn 5 is definitely unfun for the opponent.
Classy, all inclusive, sweeping statement but I’m glad you obviously understand as part of the thread you are included in that statement. Lolz. I necro’d this thread cause I’ve had some run ins with it recently. And I thought it’s better then opening a new thread.
