I'd stay away from hall of faming sorcerer's apprentice though cause wild still exists but you know

Alternately, Hall of Fame Sorcerer's Apprentice or nerf it to 'Your spells cost (1) less, but not less than 1', a la Summoning Portal. Opens up a lot more design space.

New Mage card: 20 mana, deal 1 damage, Echo.
“Have we fixed the problem yet?”

@keyvnn9 jeez i didn't think about that either. just make this card 12 mana and call it a day

@Chame Turn 6 OTKs are fun, then. Molten Reflection.

yeah sadly this would have to cost 3 because of sorcerer's apprentice but the card's idea is cool
keyvnn9 (3.9)3 years ago
Turn 4 OTKs are fun.

Maybe you could use similar wording to Death Coil? "Give a minion Spell Damage +1, or give your hero two copies of Bottled Starlight."
You also could've done "Give a minion Spell Damage +1. If cast on your hero, add two Bottled Starlights to your hand."

@Quantum I know I’m going to sound like a massive hypocrite, but we can’t remove the core of the problem if it’s official in the game. We’ll just have to work around it :\

As i said it can. Just make spell's cost irreducible.

the idea is so clever. But unfortunatly it can't exist because of Spell Cost reduction

I think it is easier to just remove core of a problem than to create something over it. And that is pretty huge line, in some more complicated weapons it can make a card's text too huge.
DestroyerR (4)3 years ago
Actually, I retract my previous statement. We could just write “can’t be equipped over another weapon” in custom cards, I’m dumb lol

Also we should pretend that all Echo (or other way repeating cheap cards) mage/priest cards have 'Cost can't be reduced'.

@Anonymous318 you’re welcome!

@PoodleFez y’know, for design purposes, we should all just pretend Twig reads “you can’t equip weapons”.
DestroyerR (4)3 years ago
@Lemons oof

yeah you can, that's the one thing bad about this- awesome effect, great name/art but blizzard's own design faliures ruin this. like how people make really awesome Druid weapons and all people can say is "BREAKS TWIG OPOPOPOP" ;-;

Can't I just go infinite with two Sorcerer's Apprentices?

And thanks for the promote, btw!

@DestroyerR Yep. 'To hand' is one less word than 'to your hand.'
Most straightforward way I could think of to keep the text as concise as possible. It pains my eyes every time I see a card with more than 4 lines of text.
DestroyerR (4)3 years ago
I’m assuming you tried writing ‘to your hand’ and it looked horrible? Nice card BTW

Revamped the effect. Now has a pseudo-Choose One effect: either give a minion Spell Damage +1, or duplicate the spell. Previous version read, 'Add 2 Bottled Starlights to hand.'

Thanks to Shoemanband for the thoughtful feedback.
