With patch 1.83 coming they are now some very interesting things to talk about in the Magmar World
These are the Magmar related changes
Thumping Wave – Cost changed from 3 to 4.
Flash Reincarnation – Ability changed to “If the next card you play this turn is a minion, it costs 2 less and takes 2 damage.”
Chrysalis Burst – Cost changed from 4 to 6.
Additional note By moving Chrysalis Burst to 6 mana, players will have more time to prepare for it, and we’ll be able to support eggs in much more interesting and powerful ways going forward.
Here are my thoughts
-Thumping wave was a necessary change it is was the card that started the warp from control to a bursty faction.It is nice that remains burst tool and removal but one mana change stops stuff like double thumping tiger and Mankantor thumping . Elucidator thumping is 8 mana play now more expensive than Bounded lifeforce.Overall good move except it steps on the toes of egg morph now
-Flash Reincarnation I don't like that the change is basically for one minion but the card was obvious design space killer and some point would have been needed to change.
-Chrysalis Burst this nerf is too heavy at 6 mana ,it doesn't get any same turn use with Wild inceptor,Morin Khur or Egg Morph.So they just killed card it is not going to see any use they might as well delete it from the game because of how hard it was hit. Every magmar player though should realize that Burst is the card that was keeping back egg mar and made the synergy cards to expansive.
On ones that got away
The bias Magmar player in me is happy that nothing happened to Lavaslaher and Ragebinder.I have been telling people for weeks now that Lavaslasher is tool that help slower decks and it seems for now CPG agrees with me.Well actually more likely it is they just wanted to see their new set in a live environment with some of the stuff toned down.
In past the I have been separating these in different topics so it can be easier to follow convo on different topics and going through a big thread can be intimidating.From now i will be doing the State of Magmar stuff in one thread this one.Anyways what are you guys thoughts on the changes
