While related to a real Hearthstone topic, it should not be taken too seriously.

4 mana 7/7 is a term used to refer to a well-balanced, very reasonably-statted minion. 4 mana 7/7s are rarely if ever seen in play, and when they do appear tend to have a minimal impact on the match. Blizzard is widely expected to add more 4 mana 7/7s in future, specifically in order to strengthen the ailing shaman class.

Alternatively, you may be looking for the boss-only card Chromatic Drake (Heroic) which was added to Razorgore the Untamed's heroic deck in Blackrock Mountain in order to make it easier for players to defeat. Even moreso with Shroomsayer in Dungeon Run. Also see Herald of Flame, a perfect fit for Warrior Rumble Run decks full of really pricey dragons, Golden Candle in The Dalaran Heist, when you need the Random Number God to spin the wheel and ruin the enemy's synergy, and Sr. Tomb Diver from Tombs of Terror, which is Reno's ultimate starting card. You might also be interested in Dr. Boom's perfect invention (if you ignore the side effects).

See also: Lady in White, who can potentially turn other pathetic 4-drops into 7/7s (or even better!). Contrast Stone Sentinel, a 7 mana 4/4 if you play it raw.

Did you know that Pit Lord was originally the first 4 mana 7/7 back in the alpha? Sadly, it was quickly nerfed into 7/5, before becoming the 5/6 we know today. But the important thing is that 4 mana 7/7 minions had a potential to shine from the moment that the game came out.

On a side note, one rare variation of this perfectly balanced stat line is the legendary minion Neptulon, a 4 Murloc 7/7. In the future, Blizzard is likely to print more witty variations of this completely reasonable collection of numbers.

How many Blizzard employees do you need to fix a lightbulb? It does not matter, because they cannot balance the ladder.
