What's sure is it would be way more boring without the adapt part
@Turba you're comparing it to card that are frankly quite bad (Ragers, Undercity Valiant who was ok in one of the worst set ever, even Scarlet Crusader was bad in Un'goro).

So you mean it's good?

I think the goal for cards is for them to be playable

Ohh you got me wrong.. it wouldnt necessarly be top meta card as a 4/1 with Combo: Deal 1 damage. But it would defienetly be playable. Kinda an average card that needs synergy to be put in a deck (like a potential Whenever you activate a Combo do XYZ or sth) or if you really needed some early minion/removal

This has 2 conditions

That is an interesting conclusion not gonna lie... Rock Rager has the total of 6 stats for 2 mana and Taunt... which would normally be 0,5 mana but it is completly unsynergistic with the statline. This on the other hand has a damage when played effect which works completly separately of the statline and it has Adapt which is actually synergistic. Like your worst option is probably Poisonous cuz you have high Attack on the minion anyway... but even 7/1 2 Mana minin that just pinged sth to death is like.. really really scary.. Stealth- the same +3 Health... 2 mana 4/4 +1/+1 - 2 Mana Ice Rager, Divine SHield - Scarlet Crusader on steroids...

I think the 1 Health is more of a downside than you account for here Turba. Guessing by the rating, you might have a point but I really don't think that a 2 mana 4/1 that deals 1 damage with Combo would be run.

Conclusion: Rock Rager is the most op card in the game

So my problem with this is that it would be balanced without the Adapt part. It is sort of like a Duskboar (a weak card) combined with Undercity Valiant (sora ok-ish) so this would make an average card without the Adapt. I feel like 3/1 statline would justify the Adapt.

Ooka_Chaka_Baby I could do that, but I want the combo and the cheap ping. I want it to be a possibly aggressive card. I made a big batch of adapting beasts and I just wanted to use a minion with an unusual statline. Also, look at it this way: Many of the Adaptations make more sense when the target has more Attack. Stealth, Divine Shield and +3 Health as well as Rush, Lifesteal and Cleave which I also had in mind when making this card as I initially made a 5/5/5 that added those keywords to the adaptation pool

Seems fine as is

This is just strange overall. I think it would be better if it was a 3/3/3 that said 'Battlecry: Deal 1 damage. if the target dies, Adapt.'.

*Conditional Combo
You could say the same about 1 mana 2/3

2 mana 4/4. No thanks.

I'm really not sure about the balance of this one. Tried to combine Petals and lizards. Thoughts?
