    Card itself is alright. Won't see play outside of Gadgetzan decks that want to use that coin to cycle.

    Hmm interesting card. Good stats and interesting for getting a coin, but it also gives your opponent one. The best uses for it are some kind of mill deck because you can fill your opponents hand with coins. (actually might be fun in Shudderwock shaman, even though you do get coins yourself.) Mailbox Dancer is definately going to see some.. interesting play.

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    Hmmm... will the flavor text and voice lines will be a nod Tina Turner's Private Dancer or to Elton John's Tiny Dancer? My money is on the former.

    I'm your private mailbox dancer, a dancer for money
    And any old music will do

    Now you kids are probably saying to yourselves, "Hey Matt, how can we get back on the right track?"

    Do I want Coin? Yes. Do I want my opponent to have the coin? No. 1/5 stars

    Cards that give the other player stuff is nearly never played, unless they have a really good niche. And this one actually has it.

    Coin is incredible powerful, more so if your deck is made to take full advantage of it. Rogue and druid decks for example uses coin better than any other class. The card also essentially innervate you first, so this is in effect a 1 mana 3/2. I wouldn't drop this card immediately, but admitably giving your opponent coin might just be too scary to imagine.

    Licensed Adventurer without the requirement for quest to be active but with the down side. I think this will be an alright card. Could lead to some fun OTKs that were not possible with extra coins.

    Casual Dragon Cardgame enthusiast.

    Never underestimate the need for coins. Also never underestimate how much your opponent can fuck you over with one extra mana.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Don't see any point in playing this card. Maybe Rogue can exploit the extra coin but I'm not sure about it.

    As dapperdog mentioned above, cards with symmetrical effects like this rarely see play, but I have a feeling this will be different. Being able to reliably generate a coin is very useful for pulling off unique combos. Your opponent gets a little extra tempo, but you get to pull off your OTK. Also the fact that there is a battlecry and deathrattle makes it much more interesting than if it just gave both players a coin off of the battlecry. In a shaman deck with Corrupt the Waters you could get 2 coins and only give your opponent one, or you could delay the deathrattle so that you get the extra coin a number of turns before your opponent.

    I don't think this will be played a lot, but it does have some interesting uses and much better design than something like Flight Master.

    Is Auctionmaster Beardo + Uther of the Ebon Blade combo finally viable? No. Will I play it? Yes.

    Fun card, but not very good. Useful in mill decks?

    This isn't really the kind of card you would use in mill since it triggers on a deathrattle meaning that it is likely to be added to your opponent's hand during their turn and then played immediately. You would be better off running King Mukla.

    Will only see play if a deck is in dire need of coins, so practically never.

    Arena > Wild > Standard

    Art isn't a female night elf in her underwear. 1/5. j/k. Actual card might be 2/5, or 3/5 if I'm generous.

    same, I understand there are decks that could use this better, but I think those decks have way better options.

    It's cool as long as we get the coin in our selected art style. Doubt it'll see much play anyway outside of arena
