Excess Mana


To edit these notes, go to Template:Astral Communion notes.

  • This spell has two steps, carried out in the following order despite the card text:
  • First, it discards the casting player's hand, queuing and resolving triggers;
  • Then, although not stated in the card's text, this spell has the following effect:
  • If, after paying this card's Cost, the casting player has 10 available and/or maximum mana, this card will generate an LegacyExcess Mana card in the player's hand.[1][2]
Example. If the player has 5 available mana but 10 maximum mana, casting Astral Communion will discard their hand and then generate an Excess Mana card, leaving th player with only 1 available mana.[3]
Example. If on turn 8 a player with 8 full Mana Crystals casts 2 LegacyInnervate followed by an Astral Communion with mana cost reduced to 0 by Blackrock MountainEmperor Thaurissan, after discarding their hand Astral Communion will generate an Excess Mana card, since when the spell takes effect the player already has 10 available mana.
  • Otherwise, it will give 10 filled Mana Crystals to the casting player, setting the mana counter to 10/10 and replacing any temporary, empty or Overloaded Mana Crystals.[4][5]
  • Astral Communion will no longer be offered for selection in Arena, since the 15th of September 2016.[6] However, it is still obtainable in Arena matches through random effects, such as The Grand TournamentSpellslinger.


In World of Warcraft, Astral Communion is a Balance druid ability available at level 20.

  3. Tested by User:Elekim, 2018-06-15. I waited to have 10 full mana crystals, and then I played a 5-cost card followed by Astral Communion: after discarding my hand I got the Excess Mana card instead of the 10 full mana crystals.
