When I first saw this card, my gut reaction was „meh“ and so were the reactions of many others. Despite this initial assessment, Cabalist’s Tome saw lots of experimentation in the early days of Whispers of the Old Gods. Especially in the combination with Yogg-Saron, Hope’s End has unleashed its power and made it popular. There are many variations of these decks, one of the first was Amaz’s Tempo Yogg-Saron Mage. This inspired many other to refine a Mage list with a lot of spells to slam down a Yogg during late game and watch the spell show. I took a variation of Amaz’s deck I saw today on TheEmero’s twitch channel and a freeze variation from Savjz’s channel which I included in this infographic. I do not know, if the deck list are their very own or if credits go to another deckbuilder. I you know who first build the decks I am happy to include credits.
As always, my infographic contains a lot of number crunching. I calculated the probabilities to draw different types of spells among others. The calculations are based upon the assumption, that you are able to draw a spell more than once. I think this is the way the game handles it because the discover mechanic is working like-wise. Although the differences between probabilities calculated by the binomial distributioon (you can draw a card more than once) and the hypergeometric distribution (you can draw a card only once) do not vary by a large scale, I wanted to deliver the numbers as exact as possible. If I am wrong on my hypothesis, pleasse correct me!
