Pros:

+ cheap
+ quick spell
+ novice level
+ unavoidable
+ extremely high Slam % chance
+ only card (so far) that can push AND slam

Cons:

- weak damage
- can't target flyers

Overall, I like it. Seems fun and balanced. That push and slam could really disorient a nasty, slow creature that is lumbering towards you. I'm also pretty sure there aren't any creatures (so far) that are immune to water.

Another pro would be,
-Water as a damage type is not currently resisted specifically by Elemental Cloak or any type of armor, no creatures have Water Resistance.

There are many super guardians in this set to slam them.

it is also a great way to shut down a battle forge quickly.
Being Aussie we place all our cards face down, apart from enchantments which are face up

Great way to push someone against the arena wall for an additional 3 dice making it very mana efficient (or through a wall). Failing the push you will probably slam them, which is great.

I like it because it raises the possibility of flying conjurations.  ;)
I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

Man if you need a impassable object between you and the enemy, you can't get any better than this. It is good bit tougher than the Stone Wall. For 1 more mana you get an additional point of Armor and 3 health over what the Stone provides. It is Earth so both the Warlord and Earth Wizard can put this into their spell books cheaply per say. Blocks LOS and is impassable so you get the Bash from it with a push. Its made of metal so weak against Lightning and Acid. and for a second night in a row a new trait Acid. Dissolve is Acid based also...

This expansion has me popping at the seams with excitement! I can't wait to get the release into my grubby paws!

Wow, yep.
I guess it was decided that Wall of Stone wasn't strong enough, so now, for the minimum possible increase in cost, Wall of Steel gains +1 Armor and +3 health. It's like a Pet Wall! (Whoseagood wall!? Yousagood wall!!)

I wonder if we'll ever get a combined Acid & Lightning attack. Some sort of horrible breath weapon, maybe.

3 types of damage in water school (water, frost, acid) and no one in earth!
I think acid in water school because Dissolve there.

Don't forget Hydro on the Water side of things. We do have Seismic as a trait on the Earth side along with Stone. I know it is the same but different.

water school has hydro attacks, can be argued they are the same word but cards will effect them differently. the necro could possibly introduce a new damage type (frost). a good assumption would be that  hydro and frost and acid will be water school. the clarification would be important because so far there is no immunity to a school only immunity to a type (flame immunity not fire immunity).

on your point about earth not having an attack type, is purely because they are releasing stuff slowly ( I'm sure as fast as they can). I would like to see earth attacks split into rock (hurl bolder) sand (eg sand storm zone attack) and Tera (fissures and earthquakes etc, +2 conjurations, 0 to flying)
