You know, its I think its cool to have the card as an option, but really in compeditive play, I do not see it being used much,  As most dwarf decks are forge heavy, and always healing lightly damaged zones, oppenents tend to do all or nothing attacks on them.  A blitz orc deck for example would tool one zone before the dwarves even got going, and build up quickley for an unstoppable rush on the next.  Dwarf zone attacks are ussaly all or nothing affairs.  I could see it being used a bit more in an empire deck splashed with dwarves.

 

But then again, healing 4-5 points in a hurt zone may be all you need to survive.  Lets face it, rarely will this card being ripping off 6+ points of damage.

The Goblin Shaman art is amazing! I saw it first in WFRP 3ed in the GM book but it still is great.

I hope I'll still have a Twin-Tail in my hand when you play this.

Certainly a great card for Dwarves as they are able to actually bring it into play. I'm hoping the other Epic Spells for the other races will be able to pay the cost in alternative methods. "Reduce resource cost by 1 for each card you discard" or "Sacrifice a unit to reduce the resource cost by X where X is the unit's remaining health."

 Holy crap.  That's...pretty crazy.  Certainly makes a case for building up your kingdom.
