    Ice Storm

    Hi, Ice Storm has always looked a strange card for me. I don't understand why it's Priest restriction. All Ice damage allies are ever shadow or Mage allies (except one).
    I know we can't change Crystals cards as they are already print.
    But for the futur, could we have a Mage restriction ability that do the same thing ?

    Same thing with Arcane Burst being a Mage card when nowadays Priests mostly do arcane damage. I feel like in CotC they hadn't quite nailed down that flavor aspect as to what classes would be more associated with certain damage types. Would interesting to see if they ever did create a swapped around version for each class if they would even really be used.

    I believe logic behind these CotC priest cards was to represent priests invoking calamities. That is common theme of Tidal Wave, Plague, Ice Storm, Book of Curses. A mage could magically conjure stuff like ice shards to hurt opponents, but priests pray for nature to bring natural Ice Storm upon their opponents.

    ^ That's a good point, is just kinda weird how it wound up turning out in the end of which class was more related to which damage type.
