  • The mana cost of this card is reduced by 1 for each time the controlling player has successfully cast a spell that game.
    • The cost reduction of this card is not dependent on the card being in the player's hand or deck or even on the card existing at the time the spell was cast.
    • Spells that are countered by  Counterspell are not counted for this minion's effect.[1]
    • Spells that are cast by effects like Yogg-Saron's Battlecry are not counted for this minion's effect.[2]
  • The mana cost of this card cannot be reduced below 0. However, further cost-reductions can help in countering cost-increasing effects like  Freezing Trap.
  • This card has an in-hand effect: it modifies its own mana cost only while in the player's hand, and not while the card is anywhere else.
  •  Devolve has limited effect on this minion, as it will turn into the 11 mana  Snowfury Giant with the same statline.
