For the deck this should be strongest in, Midrange Elemental Mage, this is a solid card, just not against aggro. So it depends on how much of the meta is aggro, cause Elemental Mage is getting some serious power, a strong 3 drop would fit right in. Could be a staple card if the meta slows a bit.

Nice handlock and big mage counter. 5-8 attack on turn 3 is quite solid. Besides that common scenario, I'm looking forward to playing this into the 12 card handlock to get a 13-3, use the master of disguise on it and counter spell which I got with renounce darkness to block the hellfire, blessing of might it the next turn and finish off with giving it windfury from Zephrys for easy 30 face damage. I can already envision the deck I'll craft. I could also tech in the plate buster to cut through armor for zero counterplay.
I like this card in aggro Mage with Elemental Evocation. Most classes can't deal with this immediately if dropped on turn 1 so you can get some good early damage in. I am only hoping for one hit and potentially 2 to get their health in range of my buffed damage spells and Avalanche. It is also an Elemental deck so it plays towards Elemental Allies as well.
The weakness of this card is the 3 health for sure. It is way too easy to kill. Elemental Evocation allows this to come out early enough to be worth it IMHO. Later in the game it is still useful as it must be addressed but not good value usually. But if you can't get it out early I am not sure it's worth playing.
Unless possibly when you are playing Embiggen Druid. I think that a single +2/+2 buff makes this card much more viable and 2 buffs makes it crazy.
Those are the two decks I use it in, is anyone else using it elsewhere?
