What you think about the Diamond Golem i find him useless, 9 mana for him is to much.

He would have to negate at least the first 5 damage at his 3 live.

Academy only has a single Zone... and with one exception, Traps can';t target a Zone with enemy creatures in it. What you are looking for are Arena cards, not Academy.

You are correct, I am looking for Arena cards. Pity there hasn't been any new ones released in a while. The arena needs more trap cards like that, and tar and frost would have worked perfectly for more options in that regard.

The Druid has Vine Trees, Seedling Pods, Samara Trees...

[and of course, as people have subsequently pointed out, she also has Fellella]

She does not need another familiar.

The Elementalist, well, let us see how it goes. It might not work well with one.

Here is one of the areas where MW differs from MtG the most in my opinion. In MtG you have room for less good/efficient creature or spells. This because you have drafts and other formats that let's you use these. But in MW this type of game styles are none existant thus requires all cards to be really equal/balanced or fit a very certain purpose. Otherwise they will never see sun light. I bet the Diamond golem will never see any good decks.

Fellela its nature mage, not only druid, i was asking for a familiar that could help to summon plant/vine spells, not only enchantments.


Beastmaster academy got one, Why not druid academy? Felella it´s too expensive for my taste.

Wychwood Faerie is not strictly speaking a familiar. It's more of a discount ring on a creature's body. I highly doubt we will ever see proper familiars in academy. Also, Druid is the mage with the most ability to spawn of any mage in the game. I really don't see the need for yet another way for a Druid to get a discount or a free action.

hahaha , only asking for more variety, they can do familiar that forbid another to avoid overpower, but it´s good to have several to get more variety in strategy, Maybe a tree creature that you can bond but only can make level 1 plant spells. pe.

Im not asking for overpower a mage, only to get more variety of strategics.
