People made too big a deal of this. Al-Akir already has Charge, so the Magnetic barely makes the slightest bit of difference.

Totally agree with Anonymous318, what are you trying to argue here is the equivalent of trying to argue that Snowflipper Penguin is a 0 Mana card that lets you fill your board with 1/1s because Glinda Crowskin exists.

Your point seems to be that cards' viability should be judged solely based on situational upsides while ignoring consistency and drawbacks.
Anonymous318 (3.9)2 months ago
I have. Charging attacks also take more time, giving your opponent time to react, which can (does, in this case) outweigh the benefits of a few extra stats. What's your point?

Yes, but haven't you the knowledge that in turn-based video games besides HS, attacks that charge up more deal more damage to an enemy?
Anonymous318 (3.9)2 months ago
All right, several things.

Ancestral Healing. Core Hound. Magma Rager. Unpowered Steambot from an earlier turn. If a card needs this specific garbage dump of cards to be played to be competitively viable, it's not competitively viable.

To construct the "desperation" defensive minion in question, you need two cards (Steambot and this) and two turns of setup. Throw in an Ancestral Healing, and that's three cards invested. Sleepy Dragon is 1 card requiring 1 turn of setup. Sleepy Dragon can be topdecked.

Saying this + Steambot is 9 Mana is like calling The Ancient One a 9-drop.

(Health not health btw)

And Sleepy Dragon has less health than the combo I mentioned.

And 3 face damage with the Windfury

NINE mana. Two steambots from turn 8. Opponent kills one, ends turn. Ancestral Healing the other and play the Steamlord to the left of it.
And are you forgetting the Divine Shield?
Say "Things can deal only 1 damage" all you want, but you can sacrifice the Shield to leave that 1-damage card in your opponent's hand AND destroy an enemy 3-Health minion, like a damaged Core Hound or even a Magma Rager.

13 mana 3/14*
Or you know, you could be playing actual good cards instead of crappy Steambot combo, like Sleepy Dragon if you are desesperate for big taunts.

9 mana 3/14 with Taunt AND DIVINE SHIELD is good.

(that other Steambot, whatever)

@Lucious bruh
But let's say you're really desperate for something defensive. You have two Unpowered Steambots on board and it's turn 8 for your opponent. (9 if he went first) He does his turn, probably killing one Steambot. You play this to the left of that Steambot and you're saved!

Overpowered?

KiruChan, I dunno man. Just arguing I guess.
My opinion on this card is that’s it’s not OP. Keyvnn9, you say that this is more flexible than the 2 mana spell? In what world does that make any sense?! This really can’t be that powerful, like come on
Lucious 2 months ago
@keyvnn9 Personaly, I don't think that Al'Akir is very powerful (except with Corpsetaker) so I don't think this is either. But if you find one of these cards powerful, you find the other one powerfull as well. Just my opinion.

How do people on this website hate each other so much?
keyvnn9 (3.8)2 months ago
@Lucious This is much more flexible than Windfury, because it can be played as its own minion. I'm not saying it's OP, though.
Lucious 2 months ago
@egweghl True, but you can just play Windfury (spell) and Rockbiter Weapon for 4 Mana and it's the same effect if you have lethal with it.
This really isn't that powerfull.

um...
What is you have a big Mech from turn 8?
Matz 2 months ago
Explain why this is OP ? This is just Al'akir with magnetic for one more Mana, the charge is irrelevant when used with Magnetic since it could only be played on a 1 mana mech.
And if you really want to give a minion windfury for combo potential, you know that there is a Shaman card that does just that for 2 mana, and guess what ? It never saw competition play.

Guys just too OP, I love the idea but just impossible. maybe with some balance, like make it cost 10 and lowing its stats....
keyvnn9 (3.8)2 months ago
When you give Force Tank MAX Windfury...
KiruChan (3.7)2 months ago
Corpse Taker is mainly used in Even, no?
Matz 2 months ago
So basically Al'akir with Magnetic ? I like it, the problem though is it allows Shamans to basically run 2 Al'akirs, which some Corpsetaker shamans might want to.

OP AF!
