    Eh...

    Deploy: Play a Bronze Spell or Weather card from your Deck, then Spawn a copy of it. Shuffle the others back.

      Ithlenne only works on 4 spells - Tremors, Thunder, Epidemic, and Quen Sign. Epidemic is useless (if the first one kills her, you don't get the second, so you are limited to killing 1 and 2 power units only), Tremors got a big nerf. Thunder and Quen are the only two Ithlenne is used for now, which Thunder being the best option.

        • Merigold's Hailstorm before didn't see much play because the game revolved around having really high strenght golds to win games (Tibor/Kayran/Ciri Dash/Hjalmar/etc) but since the nerf to Gold cards this card (and many others that people arent talking about) got buffed indirectly and that's why it's in almost every deck out there.

          A silver should not give you 40+ value in one play for the simple requirement of your opponent just playing cards because in a long round you are always gonna have units stacked in all rows so getting value from it is far from difficult.

          Also to all the people deffending this card in its current state by saying "well don't play a deck that row stacks"
          Every deck row statcks at some point whether you like it or not since there will always be a long round.

          PS:I don't think they nerfed Coral because they thought her ability was too strong but rather because they wanted her to have a more "canon" ability and my proof is in the form of Eithne+Merigold's Hailstorm wich is exactly what Coral was, a 5 strenght gold that casts Merigolds Hailstorm.

          • The problem with this card is that it became an auto include in all decks even those who are not supposed to run it due to lack of synergy . But it is such a great card now that no one cares anymore how much it fits the theme of the deck as long as it gives him the game. The best way is choose 3 cards on row and apply merigold hailstorm on them. This way the card will become logical in term of power seing without over nerfing it.

            • Guess I am the only one who's dropped Hailstorm for Scorch.

              Oh, you've just played 3 Pirate Captains on different rows... how cute.

                Guess what? You're not the only one.
                In fact this is the same basic concept, peoples are so focused on playing MH that they forgot how good Scorch is...

                  After playing this pirates deck all weekend ... this were my thoughts every single time i got good ones off in the 3rd.. all i kept thinking is
                  "Boy i am really testing my luck here,one of these games someones gonna bust out scorch and its instant Pirate shish kabob"

                  • Having played enough games to have a proper picture of the current state of the meta, I must agree that Hailstorm can indeed be quite frustrating to get hit by. On the other hand it's also satisfying to use.

                    In addition to Hailstorm my deck runs Scorch AND Igni. First you chill 'em, and then you burn kill 'em.

                    • 4RM3D Oh i guess the card description of Ithlinne confused me - since it says bronze spell OR weather card, i assumed the weather card didnt have to be bronze, only the spells...

                      I guess it's another problem of ambiguous descriptions, been finding a lot since this Gold Immunity patch, specially cards that only say 'units' but then cant affect gold cards.

                        Really? Can you explain Scorch then? Because I've used Scorch on 3x Dol Blathana Protectors or 3x Pirates with large point swings due to it. Hell, even Skellige Storm can cause large point swings with movement. It's 5 per round, and if these "long rounds" you are citing go over 6 cards, that's 30 points right there.

                          MH is a Spell Card not a Weather Card. So she can't play that.

                            Tbh I never ever faced that Pirate Captains deck I've heard so much about since the last patch but Im sure if they don't run Alzurs Double Cross to stagger them it's their fault

                              Scorch can you counter when you stagger units. Skellige Storm can you counter many ways. MH is uncounterable this way...it's not the point swing (Scorch can be better for example), but the fact that you can't do nothing. When my opponent has only 1 card left, i start to calculate, 'cause I expect always a MH.

                                Ohhhhhhhhh! Sorry, didnt even bother to read the card, just assumed it was still silver weather card, like white frost and skellige storm.

                                But it makes sense that is a spell now, since it's no longer continuous, and it's actually a spell, that Triss invents accidentally on the last book. Still hate the card though...
