This card is a decent board clear for Shaman, impacting up to 3 minions on your opponent's board. The three damage effect is comparable to Multi-Shot with more consistency (or a more predicable condition for your opponent). As such, this card works well with Spell Damage as each of the two side targets will recieve 4 points of damage. The Freeze effect can delay one opposing big minion for one turn and buy time to develop your own, and has natural synergy with Moorabi and Ice Breaker.

This card is generally considered poor and too slow to play in Constructed. Freeze Shaman is (as of K&C) absolutely unviable, and Shaman has better board clears in Lightning Storm and Volcano.
