It has a place in the new fire build :-)

Oh, this is going to be agony, sitting through these previews instead of joining in.
Playtesters have to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement so sadly I can't say anything.
However, I can quote...

This card isn't very impressive in a vacuum, but it appears as though there will be other cards that only have an effect if there are burns/curses on the target, or increase in effect the more burns/curses there are. Adramelech's Touch will have great value when played with those cards.

It's niche, a pricey 2 SPs for a Warlock who you would think has better alternatives.
It's very cheap to reveal and just as cheap to Dispel. However, quoting the review...

Quote
By itself Adramelech’s Touch does nothing.

Who will waste a precious Dispel on this Curse that does nothing? When there are so many worse ones?
So there it is: 2 levels of curses on you and 1 burn that sometimes does no damage but it never goes out.
Nothing to worry about...

I'm shocked he opened with this spell to puzzle everyone. He's such a tease...
I read someone elsewhere mentioned foreplay and building up to a crescendo...
It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye. And then it's just fun.

Also, just a side note.. with the Classic version of Warlock, if you used Touch on a creature and burnt it down you can Curse Weave it back to put on something else.

It will become a staple of any book you make if you do this when using it:

I hope the warlady has an ability that lets her get melee + and/or piercing + with each level of curse and/or burns on her opponent.  I'm sure this card will work very well with the other new cards.

NOOOOO!!!!
Baron, you're gonna start a music link thread! Again!
Do you know how many songs have "Touch" in their title?

I think it's more appropriate that Laddin started his shy foreplay with a coy Touch...

For some reason, when I think about Forged in Fire (Adramelech, Warlock, Warlord, flames, ashes, lash), this song come to my mind...

Thank you for that memory lane trip, sIKE! I think you meant to link Sam Fox's "Touch me"? Good cheesy song.
I did not realise she was known across the pond... Obviously known by you for her musical talent...
You proto-feminist, you...

I'm surprised there isn't a well-known song with both "Touch" and "Fire" in its title
I guess you just get your fingers burnt...

I don't think it's necessarily a bad card. While just stacking more burns is more likely to deal more damage in general, this card should be great against extinguish.

And you think it's expensive? It looks rather inexpensive to me.

i said itīs expensive for the level not for the mana cost , i believe there are better spells of level one than this.

I think the level will actually help it by having synergy with other cards.

Odd choice of a preview to lead with.  It's pretty underwhelming by itself, and while it's hinted that it will have synergy with future previews, that just makes me think that it would have been better to preview those cards first so that we can actually see why this would be a good card.
