- This spell has two steps:
Forbidden Shaping is flexible, usable both as an early game play (in the case that you don't draw normal early game cards) and as a late game threat, depending on draws and matchup. It should be kept in mind, however, that the minions summoned could be suboptimal, such as , or extremely harmful to the current board, like .
The best amount of mana to play Forbidden Shaping at, as of Whispers of the Old Gods, is 8. The reason is because there are no conditional minions available, like at 7, or at 9. While you could also play it at 10 to get a 12/12 or , you could also get a normal 8/8 Giant, a 7/7 , or, at worst, an unbuffed 6/6 .
The single biggest fallback, or biggest advantage, of playing Forbidden Shaping on 8 mana, is that you could get , which can singlehandedly destroy your board, or completely ruin the opponent. Dealing 8 damage to all minions is almost always the same as , but as a Deathrattle.
- Aw, such a cute little blob of purple goop. So innocent and easily influenced by the ancient evils. So malleable. So flexible! Just spend a little mana (or a LOT), and the Forbidden Shaping morphs to become just the minion you need to make things slippery for your opponent.
