    Tombstone Beacon

    I am feeling that this card is overpriced with cc of 3, and should be dropped to 2.

    Thoughts?

    It's fine to be honest. Sure, you might not be able to use it T3 aside from with Frostmare, but it is definitely a little more versatile than others due to its resource renewal.

    I think it's weak compared to other 3cc draw engines. Compare against blood frenzy, guaranteed draw every turn, no 3 turn limit. And 1cc back isn't that much of a help.

    Devs have been making more draw engines, and making them player friendly. Confluence of Fate is the best example, of course.

    Beacon is a tribe specific draw engine, and should be better than neutral draw engines, imho.

    I've never wanted to use the card and I've never been particularly aware of it either.

    You probably could drop it to 2cc and it wouldn't change my opinion very much.

    To be fair, many people have suggested that Confluence be made 3cc, but yeah, Beacon is somewhat mediocre. If you use it right it could be okay I guess. Just don't think it's something the DT really are watching in terms of potential buffs.

    It's a very interesting card when you use it right.
    Refering to the topic, well, it's a really good point that it's a tribe card. I mean if you don't go undead you won't use that card. I guess that just like the item destruction card of the ravager which is extremely cheap, this should be cheaper then 3 cc.
    Anyhow if anyone think it would be op, give it a month going 2cc and see what happenes, we can always change it back (like when Elad could shoot her ability at the opponent hero, after a month every single hero you would play against was Elad lol, so they changed it back).

    It would definitely be a more interesting card if Undead allies were in any way interesting and if the "renew 1 resource" clause did relevant things.

    The resource renewal did. Before Death from Above got nerfed to Wulven only, an Undead Moonstalker could go T3 Tombstone T4 Death Collector/Tormentor + DFA/NYM. Also, it effectively decreases the cost of one Undead ally's Summon by 1. Also, with Frostmare, it can also act as a free renewal.
