Since drawing power is what combo decks mainly want, this is completely overpowered in a huge number of OTK decks (we're talking 2-4 turn wins of 100-350'ish damage (yes) in one turn that can't be stopped because SoB is a spell). You could probably fix this by not letting you draw more than your opponent can.

Also, I found a bug. Clicking one SoB in my hand turned it into a Chimera on the field. In truth I only have one Chimera in the deck, and it's in my hand. Iman00b8 can confirm this bug happening to him as well.

Yeah I can... it seems that if you play the card too quickly after drawing it, it turns into a Chimera... not confirmed, but that is when it has happened to me

Confirmed, and yes to the above question.

With a cost of 1 :rainbow upgraded, this card seems ready to take over Precognition's position just by looks. All sillycritique in chat aside, I'd agree with the before-mentioned nerf that prevents you from drawing more cards if your opponent doesn't have the ability to draw more as well.

Overall, it looks kind of like Precog, but for :fire instead (though it also gives strong :light vibes). I'm not sure if this brings anything new to the table yet, but I'll let the card run it's due testing course and see where it goes.

My initial impressions: Mostly balanced with a possible scenario that it can be abused badly in (though not discovered yet)

Suddenly, fat decks and extremely fast (fire) mono rushes.

Seriously, even unupped, at the cost of 3 quanta, this can fit into anything. A mono life deck, a mono water, mono time. 3 quanta for 2 card draw is way more than worth it. Precogs can make a 30 card deck seem like 24, this can make a 30 card deck seem like 18 or 12.

I just really can't understand what purpose this card serves when we already have precog, HGs, and an absurd plethora of powerful fire cards.  This just completely overshadows everything else when it comes to drawing in a rush. All it does is make a bunch of other niche cards much less useful.

erm, sorry but then only time or rainbow will benefit.... at least now don't you think other elements have a better card drawing mechanism as well?? and as you know fire has been nerfed a lot lately, i do not think SoB for fire affinity and seraph is very powerful.... seraph is very costly you know....

Does every element have to be complete? Something being a shard makes it accessible to every single deck. For any mechanic that is something to be managed very carefully, and card drawing is something that "belongs to :time" as it is directly related to the theme of :time.

Just saying again, this is not a :fire card... it is an Other whose ability gets increased WITH :fire... it's no more a :fire card than SoG is a :life card
