Thread: Primal Dawn Revealed!

    I'll say this about Psionic Flame - I think you'll see the utility of having lots of actions available to you when you see some of the underlying archetypes/themes in the set. It'll probably get more play than people think.

    More generally, it's impossible to properly evaluate any given card until you know about all the cards, how they interact with each other, Set3, and prior sets.

    There was a card named "Destiny" at first, but it got shattered and is no longer in the set.

    I can. Suicide Blood. A 4 cost 6/6 is pretty beefy. Hand disruption, some removal, a couple 1 or 2 drop troops and Blackguards.

    I know everyone is all excited and I don't want to be a buzzkill... but is there really only one new keyword/mechanic?

    There's the further development of other keywords/mechanics that didn't get enough exploration in the previous set(s). And a whole bunch of new archetypes that will be possible. And the resurgence of some older limited play styles that lost favor over the last couple of sets. So, even if Overpower is the only brand new keyword, it doesn't need to mean that there are not a lot of exciting things going on with the set.

    Could also dump that power on a lifedrain troop, or a troop that does a thing that it does DMG to a champ. Someone might be able to figure out a cool combo with it.

    That maybe so; however, at face value this card hurts me.

    My favorite TCG card of all time is Prophetic Bolt, this card can't help but remind me of that card in its function, flavor, and art. Sadly, I find it real hard to imagine scenarios where it isn't magnitudes worse.
