Could this be a Despicable Dreadlord for Mages and Shamans? Despicable Dreadlord was a very strong Warlock card, but could be cheated on by Skull of the Man’ari as well as resurrected by Bloodreaver Gul’dan. Will Ras Frostwhisper’s Spell Damage effect be its selling point on top of its very useful card effect? And the fact that Ras deals damage to all enemies, including face?
The Shaman class has the following Spell Damage minions:
Lady Vashj/Vashj Prime, who each give Spell Damage +1. And Squallhunter (Spell Damage +2).
