Juicy Psychmelon Reveal: The Boomsday Project

Recommended Posts

This Epic Druid spell has some juicy potential!

The card was unveiled by Chinese streamer QiGe on Douyu:

This card is really good, but I think the outrage about it being too overpowered is misplaced. Druid already has plenty of good draw options (although to be fair, not targeted ones as Juicy Psychmelon) and the class mostly wants to cheat minions out by Recruiting them instead of drawing them. This is especially true for Big Druid, with mostly Giant Anaconda being able to summon big minions from hand. Even Taunt Druid already has reliable draw and Recruiting options. Juicy Psychmelon also thins out your deck and one must contemplate if its effect is worthwhile if the spell fetches 3, 2 or even a single minion for you.

On the other hand, it is a fishing tool that targets specific cards in your deck - that effect alone is quite powerful. It can reliably get you stuff like The Lich King, Hadronox and Malygos. Juicy Psychmelon also synergises pretty well with Dollmaster Dorian and the newly revealed Druid Legendary minion Flobbidinous Floop. And it's pretty bonkers in Wild, directly serving you the entire combo of Aviana, Kun the Forgotten King, King Togwaggle and Azalina Soulthief. All in all, it is a pretty powerful card but perhaps its usage in Standard might be more limited than people think.

Is "OP" your first reaction about this card or do you think it has shortcoming(s)? Let us know in the comments below and don't forget to pay a visit to our Boomsday Project expansion hub! The reveal schedule article should have left the main page, so here's a link for it as well!

Meh... Taunt druid already has the necessary tools to cheat out what it wants from its deck, Big Druid doesn't really need additional card draw. OTK druid could use this as a more reliable way to fish for combo pieces than Nourish, though, so it might find a place.

Wow, crazy card. Certainly goes into any wild combo deck yeah.

I guess the only question is do you also still run UI, particularly if playing it in standard taunt decks. It’s going to be quite hard to empty your hand enough to play UI after playing this.

Yeah, this card might be bonkers in wild. Its like, 'Draw your Aviana / Malygos and Kun the Forgotten King'

It does rather telegraph the moment dirty rats should be played I guess, but to be honest it’s not hard normally anyway. You just have to hold on to a few non-combo minions and hope for the best.
