This is the New Mage Card Raving Grimoire. It’s not super-powerful at first glance but you can never write any cards off before trying them and seeing what new synergies there are.
Being a 1 mana 1/1 you would have to assume it’s best played in an aggressive build like Tempo Mage. However, once again you are leaving your fate up to RNG and it depends on what spell you get to how good you feel about including this card in your deck.
It’s a downgrade for situations where a random 1-drop can appear. A 1/1 is among the lowest base stats so it’s going to be a disappointment from that perspective.
This is the New Mage Card Firelands Portal to be released with the new adventure One Night in Karazhan. I really like this card and it will no doubt see plenty of play due to the value it offers, but there is a huge RNG swing – which we are all used to in Hearthstone.
Blizzard have said that the Portal theme of cards will go across other classes so it’s interesting to see what else is going to follow.
Even though it’s a slow card I can see this being used in Tempo Mage. Being able to remove a minion and develop a 5-cost minion on the board for 7 mana is a potential tempo swing. I’m looking forward to seeing this card being played.
