This will likely be one of the auto-includes in many mage decks, considering mages seem to get extra versatility through their hero power. Very solid 2 drop and a really good compensation for horrible draws in the beginning, or on failed mulligans.
You play it on turn 2, it survives kills the enemy's 2 drop ( propably unless it's a 2/3 ). Huge tempo lead already, not like mages couldn't already pull it off ( frostbolts/flamecannons ) but still really strong. It can also be comboed with that 6/6 dragon and the lake mistress ( whatever she is called ) for some burst. I expect Thaurissan to see even more play now....
The real question is: does is make hunter and shadowpriest powers do 3 (or even 4 with double Shadowform) damage?
Its a Mage Card.
You can get it from shredder..
Yes, this is why Steamwheedle Sniper is crappily worded, and this is also why this new card is just as crappily worded. Would it really have killed them to say "Your Steady Shot Hero Power...", "Your Steady Shot Power...", or even just "Your Steady Shot..."? Same with the new card and Fireblast.
Nah, it seems like each version adds +1. Its effect looked like spell damage, meaning your hero power can stack up, also be lowered to 1 mana, and be cast an unlimited amount of time per turn, provided you have mana. So you can potentially do 30 (or more depending on duplicate) with damage in one turn with your hero power, assuming a perfect board with Coldarra Dragon and Maiden of the Lake + 2 Fallen Heroes.
