Do people really think that players join the balance team to buff their favorite factions? Trust me guys most of our work involves trying to stop cards that will ruin the game from going live. ::)

No no you got it backwards man. If you release enough broken cards then they'll balance each other and no cards will be broken.

Magic The Gathering works pretty much like this

Wheezer of Smog - Increase stats or reduce cost to 1.


As is, wheezer wins games. Just ask Nuggets :D

Angelify? Nope
Descension? Nope
Upgrade? Nope (Gains you value if it results in a bad block)
Mechborning? Nope
Tinkers? Nope
Siphoners? Double Nope
Shikana Charge? Nope

I'm sure I'm missing more here but those are the big ones that come to mind. Especially that whole "I can block siphoners" thing. That's kinda a big deal.

No matter the problem, the solution is always a flying emberstarter.

Sure its ok in a few situations, but its terrible in ALL other situations. Not to mention that most of the things you mention it counters cost the same as it does, at that point why not just run denial and remove all of the guesswork of trying to predict when your opponent will play descension.

It won't stop mechborn and herald+shikana charge because they don't target. Wheezer is also overshadowed by a certain new factionless card. It could do with a small buff really considering there are other cards with more powerful deploy abilities that have a far better cost to stat ratio.

herald+shikana charge because they don't target.

People still play herald? Also I was thinking shikana + ferocity. Herald is just way too predictable and I feel like its easy to stop with other methods if you see it coming.

Only in 3 FD, because it lacks any burst damage.

Herald does have some advantages over ferocity, it lets you Shikana on turn 6. While it is predictable, a lot of decks still can't do anything about it. You can also use Herald to bluff Shikana, which normally buys you a turn. Herald on turn 8 for example is very threatening, because on turn 9 you could either Shikana or ramp to Calamity.

Random idea, make Burden of Command more usable by allowing it to target any card in play. Makes it a bit more useful esp vs champions.

[also maybe help it combo with Dehumanize or Monster Hunt??]
