    For those keeping score at home, that is not what Nozari is supposed to look like.

    Guys.  Does it...

    Does it give you Sacrificial Pact if your opponent is Jaraxxus?

    Arena gets an 8-mana sunwalker at bare minimum, with better options for basically any other use.  I think you'll pick it up in arena sometimes.

    Constructed... it honestly feels worse than Spikeridged Steed, and I'm not sure there will be a meta deck that would consider both.  (As someone mentioned, Immortal Prelate decks might run this, but those haven't been meta yet.)

    This might not actually be an upgrade- a lot of aggroish decks flood the board with little minions that you wouldn't want to pay 4 mana to rez- this is why i stoped using Shadow Madness- too many bad/small minions screw up the discover options. 

     I think you may have misunderstood the tone of the initial post.

    Thank you for your prompt response.

    Well, sad though it may be that we don't get to do it just yet, I guess this is at least an instance of Blizzard doing an okay job making sure something works.

    posted a message on Updated Deck Recipes: Whizbang(?)

    Having received Archmage Vargoth from the pre-emptive RoS giveaway, I went to create a deck with him.

    However, I noticed as I did so that the deck recipes had updated to include cards from the new expansion.

    Now, this would normally only be an oddity, had Blizzard not released Whizbang the Wonderful.  That in mind I have a simple question: 

    To: Someone who owns Whizbang

    Does he give you decks with unreleased cards in them?  If not, does he simply give you the same decks from before?

    I am extremely curious, and while Blizzard has probably accounted for this, they are also known for being a small indie company.

    Just gonna toss out my first guess since I'm suppose to be in class: Astral Communion

     Pyrotrap grabs it.

    A reference to Cataclysm, 4 mana, discard your hand, and a reference to 'Astral,' 'Lunacy,'  or, y'know, moon madness.  "Hey! Moon! Can I have some mana crystals?"

    Lunacy was specifically capitalized to draw attention to the pun, hence the reason Cataclysm wasn't acceptable.

    I like the idea, Destroyer, but you're on the wrong track.

    Daraja is picking up a little bit on part of it, but hasn't put it together quite.

    Here's a really short one.  Should be easy, but I thought it was funny.

    It would be utterly cataclysmic to play me!
    It would be utter Lunacy to do so!

    Wait, wait, wait.  Is it Archbishop Benedictus?

    Voice line: 'My master will return,'  Master being somebody missing, (E.G. the Old Gods, whose expansion was 3 previous.)

    Gives you your opponent's deck.

    Also, 100% a meme.

    I’m late, I admit, since my call  //Am late, implies that the card is from the new expansion

    was three expansions prior  //Three expansions prior should  probably be Witchwood, but could potentially be KnC or Boomsday.

    but I’m the meme-iest of all  //A meme-y card?  Interesting

    Since I give you your opponent’s desire  //A thief card?

    Initially, this could be Togwaggle's scheme.  Potentially taking many copies of a card your opponent plays is kinda meme-y.  (Seriously, you could do some crazy stuff with that)  You could spin Heistbaron Togwaggle himself as this, too, since he gives you a fabulous treasure, but that's not something that your opponent specifically desires.

    It feels like there's something that should go with 'my call,' but I'm not seeing any crazy demons that are coming back, or, for that matter, the old gods.

    On net, I'll guess Togwaggle's scheme.

    Maybe Unstable Portal?

     Oh, it's 100% unstable portal.  

    I looked quite unsuspecting at first   //A random minion doesn't seem like too much.

    Although my upkeep cost is quite high  //That's the flavor text.

    I’ve headlined Trolden many a time  //Because it has

    Don’t confuse me for a glyph

    Although my outcome can be primordial  //A reference to primordial glyph, a similar 2 mana card, that gets you another, discounted, card.

    --

    Although my number's look like twos and threes  //2 mana, 3 discount

    It's actually 1/3 of the annual GDP  //Seriously, leaning super heavy on the flavor text here, like, seriously, check it out.

    Entirely random and entirely broken  //Definitely entirely random.  Broken... Not sure exactly, maybe just because...

    Gonna bring in Old Gods awoken  //Sometimes, you get the absolute bananas outcomes, and I'm not talking Mukla.

    --

    Is it 3 damage you need?  //That sure is a thing you might get from a minion

    Another copy of Archmage?  //Yup, can do.

    Just hope it's not Emerald Hive Queen  //An option, and certainly...

    Or I may be a portal to rage  // ...a 1-mana card that makes your minions more expensive isn't exactly what you want.  Also portal.

    It has to be Baku the Mooneater

    It fits perfectly.

     

    Quote from Elvaeyn >>

    Ooh now that I'm reading again it would make sense it it was Baku (and dammit someone beat me to the punch again because I didn't refresh the page before posting) 

    Oh, so you're playing me?
    Me, with the threes? (Playing with odd cards) 
    Me with the twos?
    That's one way to lose. (Don't play it with even cards)  
    A card of bad mojo,
    A card who is so-so, (9 mana 7/8 is a mediocre stat line)
    A gain in your force,
    (A loss too, of course). (Upgraded hero power at the cost of no even cards)
    Well, good luck my friend,
    Survive me, then end. (At the start of the game, Baku says "None will survive" )

     …

    Well.  It's not the answer I was looking for.  The actual card I was looking for was Surrender to Madness.

    Threes (3 mana cost, 3 mana lost), twos (+2/+2), One way to lose because it's a weak card.  Bad mojo referencing Mojomaster Zihi, who also affects your mana.  So-so, again, weak.  Gain in your force (buffs your minions) a loss too (Because mana lost).  Survive me, then end (Survive the lost resources, then end).  'Won't be mist, both as a reference to the mistcaller, and because I don't think anyone will care about this card going away.

    Now, why am I telling you this if you didn't guess it?

    Simply, because, honestly, Baku matches just as well as it.  The only part you can't finagle is the pun in 'won't be mist,' but honestly?  It's good enough.

    TL;DR:  Is it Baku?

    Quote from Datrevdo >>

    It fits perfectly.

     So, for the first time in the time I've been in this thread, one of my puzzles has been solved with a different card than the one I meant for it to be.  (Got close once with Kun and Ancient of lore, but not quite)

    Datrevdo, come collect your prize.

    It is not Keleseth.  Further, the lack of italicizing is an error, and I've got no idea why part of it isn't italicized.
