Far Sight Leeroy OTK

Posts: 3
Yeah, the thing about farsight is, it looks good until you realize you could have just drawn the card you need instead for the same value... It does narrow the card pool marginally, but this effect is only really significant when you are low on cards. And, tbh, if you're that low on cards you probably want, well, more cards. Sure the cards will cost less for the whole game, but saving those cards costs you a lot of tempo at any stage of the match. The only cards I can see this having consistent synergy with are QA, MA, and GA. Still, you can't even use it in the mana addict turn 3 kill combo :(.

Another useful buff here would be if both copies of the single card you drew with farsight cost three less. At minimum, that would help it save more mana than it used.

Far Sight is definitely one of the weaker cards Shamans have, just about everyone agrees on that. It's entirely luck-based, which is its biggest problem. Even a Rogue's Preparation is literally only used in 1 deck, Miracle. That kind of effect, mana reductoins for one card, they're just not that great in general.

It's not making your card 3 mana cheaper, it's paying that 3 mana to get the card a turn sooner when it might end up costing you more mana than you save anyway.

I see potential if they changed it to: "draw the next minion, that minion costs 3 less". This is probably the only thing I haven't tried out in the shaman deck. If i ever farsight'd a rockbiter weapon or a earth-shock I might rage a little too hard to even think about putting this in my deck
