Play Cost: 3

Attack Cost: 3

Attack: 3

1, Destroy Shadowstrike If your hero has Enchanting, draw two cards.


In the future, this card may become a playable weapon, since the professions aren’t being used fully yet.

So wait until next set and maybe we need to review this card again.

Red Comet Shadowstrike

Essentially you pay four to draw 2 cards ? Then this is destroyed ?

High strike cost for the damage and a rather lame ability leads me to say that this card is just bad.

I expect a bit more out of a weapon if I have to blow it up and it requires a specific job class to get an effect.

Sealed: 1/5

Constructed: 1/5

Casual: 1/5

We continue 'Molten Core Hunter- style week with....


3 cost, 3 ATK (Melee), 3 Strike cost

Two- Handed weapon- Polearm, Melee (1)

1, Destroy Shadowstrike >> If your hero has Enchanting, draw 2 cards.

Well. As a weapon, this is a mediocre tool. As a card drawing engine, though... if your hero is an enchanter, you can get a pretty easy Draw 2 out of this. Not a bad card on the whole, just not one of teh best I've seen.

Sealed: 0/5 Because you cant get it in sealed.

Constructed: 3/5 You can strike with it and sac it, if your opponant targets it, you can sac it... draw two is pretty solid.

Casual: 3/5 About the same here.

Raid (Onyxia): 2/5 You can get better stuff for an Ony raid.

Raid (MC): I need to get some money for an MC deck so I can start rating the darn things!!!
W.A.Y.S. Next up this week is Shadowstrike.

Given the nature of this week's reviews I'll be only reviewing this weapon for the Hunter class.

Let's look at the stats for Shadowstrike. First off it only cost 3 resources to equip which is very nice. The 3 strike for three damage is okay. 3/3/3 altogether is very playable. A turn three drop leading into possibly consecutive three damage hits could spell victory in hurry if unanswered.

Now on to the effect. This is only good for Aleyah Dawnborn, but since this is hunter week we won't go into this. So as it stands Shadowstrike is a
3/3/3 vanilla weapon.

All formats for Hunter: 3 out of 5 - It's a decent weapon.

All formats for Aleyah Dawnborn: 4.5 out 5 - A good weapon with an optional draw two for one resource.

"A goony goo goo."

Shadowstrike (Melee-1)
Hunter, Paladin, Warrior
Cost:  3
Strike:  3
ATK:  3
1, Destroy Shadowstrike->If your hero has Enchanting, draw two cards.
This is a pretty good early game weapon to have, when your ready to use a new weapon (or someone goes to destroy it) you pay one, destroy it and you get two cards if your an enchanter (the only hero, that can use this weapon and has enchanting, is Aleyah Dawnborn, who happens to be a blood elf Paladin from TDP).  It's stats are pretty boring, without the use of the ability, for a cost of 3 a weapon that hits for 3 and you have to spend 3 to swing with it...there are just better weapons out there for these classes then this, but if you can use the ability it's a much better card and should be used (card advantage is never a bad thing).
Sealed:  1/5 (really N/A) 
Constructed:  4/5  card advantage good....and if someone goes to remove it pay one, get your 2 cards and the opponent is out his/her resources used to try and kill it.  also good when you get a better weapon.
Casual:  4/5  same as above 
Raid:  4/5 ditto
Charlie M. Shadowstrike

Melee 1

3 Cost, 3 Atk, 3 Strike Cost

1, Destroy Shadowstrike If your hero has Enchanting, draw two cards.

3 Atk for 3 Cost and 3 to strike isn't too bad, but its not great. However, If you're packing a load of weapons this wcould makea good early game choice, especially if your hero has Enchanting. Pay one, lose the weapon you no longer want and draw two cards.

Not really much more to say here, fairly straight forward card.

Sealed: 3/4

Constructed: 3/4

Casual: 3/4

Raid: 3/4

Yes, we love the art, it's 110% mean!!! 5/5
