Do you have a card you just hate? Maybe you think it's just underwhelming...
Regardless - this is the thread for you!
The premise simple, think of one or more existing cards you think could do with some love, and recreate them. Maybe change their stats, adjust their effect from battlecry to deathrattle, or give them a whole new effect entirely! Without the weekly card competitions, hopefully this will give something people can contribute to any time.
Without further ado:
With Brightwing being added as a new Legendary to the Classic Set, I think her effect is somewhat boring. Sure, the value is alright for in arena, and she works as a low cost dragon activator, but it could do will a little more flair.
Since she's a Faerie Dragon, I thought it fitting to give her an Emerald Dream type effect. As Arfus is to The Lich King, Brightwing could be to Ysera. Given the relative power of Dream Cards, I decided against her adding the card directly to your hand, or making it a deathrattle - instead, shuffling means the value is delayed into later in the game.
Hopefully with this change her power would be a little less random, and make her more interesting.
Anyway, if this thread happens to take off the ground; let me know what you think, and have fun!
Sounds like a fun ideas so I’ll contribute. I’m not at home so I’m not gonna go through the trouble of making a custom card.
I always liked Furnace Fire Colossus as a concept, but he’s so weak. He really needs and added effect because discarding a bunch of weapons just to get a large minion with no immediate impact will lose you the game. So here’s my new idea:
Furnace Fire Colossus, 7 mana, 6/6 Epic
Rush, Battlecry: Discard your weapons and gain their stats. For every weapon discarded, this minion may attack an additional time each turn.
These changes would be awesome. Having rush as a baseline means that it’s not a completely dead card if you’re out of weapons and if you do discard a bunch of weapons you get a large minion that can swing the board back in your favor, similar to Batterhead. And if it lives until the next turn you get a bunch of face damage.
