    why would you need to dump 12 into this for it to be useful? As others have said, this would be good just paying 6 for a 4/4 troop as a quick action that deals 4 to the opponent. The fact you can pay more if you choose (or less) is just icing on the cake.

    My first reaction was, "Oh no The Eye of Sauron is getting a corporal body to go with it!" After that I thought, "Sweet! Burn to the Ground can now be scrapped for the same effect and speed at the cost of one more resource!"

    This card has a ton of potential and something people are forgetting is that gems are rotating with set 5 so tons of unknown potential with this card coming later

    Probably confused as to what 2X means. We know it's 2 + X. But lots of folks interpret it as 2 * X (which HEX actually represents as XX).

    ah I see. I hadn't even thought of that. seeing like that I can see why some don't like it. but as you said, Hex has shown us that when it is 2*x they just put xx.

    I am really looking forward to using this guy in some sort of control or midrange deck. Might even put a couple in faster decks as an end game card.

    Even a 1/1 unblockable rhino creator on turn 3 is pretty impressive

    One thing you can do is play him for, say, 2+4, resulting in a 4/4 that deals 4 with the damage gem, bounce with Yesterday or the like, then replay for 2+4, resulting in an 8/8 that deals 8 damage. 12 damage over the course of 3 turns, not including attacks with Speed.

    why the hell people multiply a card cost? in that other game if a card cost 2 colorless and 3 color resource do they pay 6 color resource?!
    2 is 2 and X is a modifier to somthing the card does, seems so counterintuitive to multiply both instead of just ading the costs

    That's basic algebra. 2X means 2 times X there, and XX would simplify to X squared. 2 + X would be the right way to write the card's cost under that notation.

    yeah, and i can guarantee you that more people followed high school than played the other card game.
    this was one of the largest confusions for me as well as a new players.
    Also when you had to play the card, e.g. if you want to do deal 1 damage with burn to the ground, do you click it to 1? or to 2?
    So i just stopped using X cost cards altogether.
