I just want to play something that’s you know actually Ice/CC themed… I don’t wanna go in with all neutral cards and just spam warbird.
For example the faction has a lot of stuns, why can’t it have cards like Sunriser, Gold Vitriol or Shadowdancer that proc when something is stunned?
It has Vespyrs and I use Vespyr decks to climb to diamond 2. I certainly don’t claim to be good at the game but it doesn’t change the fact that no matter how good I am, all of my minions will just die to rebuke with 4 mana if my opponent chooses to. That’s just no fun.
I like the slow build up style with Glacial element but I don’t get that very often. Because first of all, you just don’t draw it sometimes and when you do you have to be super careful with positioning and even then it will die to every removal. Sometimes when you do get it to stick on the board and do everything right, it’s still not enough because they might just be using a deck that doesn’t care about minions if they are running an artifact deck or Shidai Mantra. Sometimes their buffs out pace the damage I can do, if they are playing a grow deck or an arcanyst one. Othertimes they are running a trial deck or Titan and I lose by default if I try to go for my setup.
Also the fact that Glacial Elemental is so random is certainly not fun.
Most of the time I just have to cheese by hiding a crystal cloaker with flying buff (from Iceblade Dryad) and make a lot of minions then finish with Vespyrian Might, or just equip a lot of Animus Plates when they are provoked, then combo next turn with Wintertide or Bonechill Barrier. It feels super cheesy and unsatisfying knowing that my opponent could have easily prevented it.
Every other class gets these really cool 4 mana minions, like Sunriser, Flamewreath, Four Winds Magi, Owlbeast, Wasteland Wraith, Desolator, Bloodtide Preistess, Progenitor, Rizen.
What do I get? Voice of the Wind? It’s cool I guess… But would it really hurt if it was a Vespyr itself? Is it even worth the 4 mana investment?
I don’t think it would be OP if it was 3 mana and a Vespyr itself.
Would it hurt if Illena’s BBS worked on generals as well as minions and dealt one damage?
Would it be that OP if Ice Shatter Gauntlet and Winterblade actually synergized with each other?
Why can’t we make Cryogenesis do 4 damage and also stunned the enemy? Or lower the mana cost of Endless Hunt, Blinding Storm and Boundless Courage?
What if Matron Elveiti made it so that minions couldn’t counter attack your general either?
Or what if Vanar gets a trial that’s not board dependent like all the other factions?
All these little buffs could make a big difference.
