So all the Kron talk lately got my mind athinking. Is it just me, or is Frostiva feel kind of gimped compared to Kron? For those who don’t know, here’s the matchup
Whenever you replace a card, summon a 2/2 Prisoner with a random ability nearby
Prisoners can have Provoke, Forcefield, Ranged, Rush and Frenzy.
Whenever this minion attacks or is attacked, summon a 3/3 Vespyr Night Howler nearby.
Now, here’s how I see the matchup
Pros: Stronger body, more immediate board effect, minions have abilities, easier to summon minions
Cons: Vulnerable to Hollow Grovekeeper, requires a card to be replaced
Pros: Forcefield allows better trades, stronger minion bodies, Vespyr synergy
Cons: More vulnerable to dispel, much weaker body, minions not guaranteed
Now, it might seem like they’re fairly even, but I have the view that Frostiva’s cons are much worse than Kron’s. Dispelling a Kron leaves a 4/6, which isn’t too bad for 5 mana. Dispelling Frostiva, on the other hand, leaves a 3/3 body. At the 5 mana level, a 3/3 is a joke to kill. And it’s not like dispels are even rare in this meta.
So basically, what I’m asking is, is it just me, or could Frostiva use a wee bit of love? Nothing insane, mind you, don’t go giving her wolves abilities of their own. But even bumping her up to a 3/4 seems fair, atleast to me.
