    Great mana bonuses but 2nd ability is too expensive. There's no reason to ever use when you can get 4x the power for just 2 more loyalty.

    @FindingHeart8 - I think the mana gains are pretty poor for a mono walker. Black 5 and red 4 would be more relevant.

    The skill set is pretty limited. The 1st (discard ability) is ok, but it competes with a number of spells and supports in permanent standard, which does each thing better though more focused. So only just ok.

    The 2nd is as you describe irrelevant when the 3rd is there at the same price.
    The 3rd is definitely strong, but you might risk it targeting the wrong cards, so you have to include removal cards to be able to target the things that you want to remove. Therefore, I see her as a somewhat problematic PW to run with.
