One thing I don’t think is right about the design of these minions is that they can take the damage from the pre-existing status effects.
It’s one thing if you case, say, Gravemaker when there are already minions in play. Sure, they need to burn first.
But what if you have Mother North poisoned? Her special casts afterward, and boom… minions… she’s poisoned but then they take all of the damage?
That doesn’t seem right.
