Can someone explain the rationale behind Flametongue being at "average" because that definitely seems a bit low...

Can someone explain the rationale behind Flametongue being at "average" because that definitely seems a bit low...

Flametongue Totem is extremely situational as you require a rather solid board setup in order to get full benefit out of the card - in other words, you can't just pop it on an empty board and expect it to bring in the value. Because of this dependency you should compare Flametongue Totem to other class cards and not neutral minions and I believe that you wouldn't pick Flametongue over Rockbiter Weapon or Stormforged Axe, nor would you pick it over Forked Lightning or Lightning Bolt if it was your first card to pick.

I do agree however that "average" doesn't sound right for Flametotem, because its a good card, the other cards in those tiers are simply better. :)

I think the list is lacking feral spirits.

They are Rare cards, and, as such, are listed in the Rare tab :)

Sorry but you have to be nuts to consider Flametongue average. It raises in value based on the number of lower cost creatures and token generators in your deck. Situational? Forked lightning is very situational. severely hampers your tempo if played early on and not guaranteed to hit it's targets. Cleave is very solid because it doesn't ruin your next turn.

 

Flametongue is one of the very top commons for Shaman.  If it doesn't work for you then you're not playing it properly or your drafting style revolves around too many high cost minions.

Normally I consider picking a Fire Elemental and some early removal over it during the initial picks, however I seem to have overlooked it at the spreadsheet and you are absolutely right. Flametongue is amazing. Will adjust it asap.

Thanks for pointing it out, IcyMist

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week! Its name is Spellbook Duel.
      For this Brawl, you choose your class and then you pick 10 different cards to fill your deck. Instead of drawing cards each turn, you Discover a copy of a card from your deck. If you use card drawing mechanics, like Arcane Intellect, you don't actually draw from your deck. You will, in fact, get a 1-mana spell called Peruse, which again allows you to Discover a copy of a card from your deck.
      Obviously, there are a lot of possible deck combinations you can use to tackle this new Tavern Brawl. The first things that pop into mind are anything that contains Reno Jackson and Kazakus, as well as Jade Druid to extend the possibility of getting these precious Jade Idols. Once again, Mage is the clear winner of this Brawl with cards like Sorcerer's Apprentice, Arcane Intellect and Flamewaker.
      Bear in mind that some cards are not recommended, since they remove cards from your Discover pool. Examples are Fel Reaver and Tracking. Moreover, cards that put another card directly into play, like Mysterious Challenger and Mad Scientist, will also make your Discover pool smaller. Lastly, according to a Reddit user, Renounce Darkness won't deduct 1 mana from the cards you discover throughout the game.
      There are already a lot of disgusting decks for Spellbook Duel out there. We are waiting for your suggestions and any other useful info in the comments!
