    Thats a nice Tutor Card. And 2 Mana 2/3 is ok on it's own but i guess you will almost play that in combination with a Trade.

    In the right deck it can work wonders. But those would be confined to control and combo decks because tempo decks cant afford to save up a card in their hand for a hypothetical.

    I look forward to this card being the main reason why stuff like Il'gynoth gets nerfed eventually.

    See I don't really believe this is going to be a thing.

    The main upside of Tradeable cards is the fact that you basically turn them into 1-mana draw 1 whenever you have no use for them (and are even better in Control decks because you can "draw" without going closer to fatigue) Using this would not only mean that you have to run a good number of Tradeables for it to pay off (and so far it looks like each class only gets one with the rest being neutrals) but also invest 2 extra mana for a mildly more benefitial effect. This isn't going to stick on the board most of the time so the only scenario where you would use it is if you want to re-draw and have more mana than you can possibly use.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    At this moment blizz revealed just 2 neutral tradeable cards, Impatient Shopkeep and Rustrot Viper, and we can supose that every (or almost) class will get one. It's enough to put Auctioneer Jaxon in your deck? No. But there will be more neutral cards for sure, we need to see if are good ones or not.

    By The Holy Light!

    I like the concept of the card, but don't you need a high density of Tradable cards in your deck to get value from this? My impression is tradable cards are situational tech cards that you use for certain MUs, thus they won't be prevalent in your deck. So, to get value from this, you must be in a situation where you need to cycle a tradable card and have this on hand. Say you run 2 to 4 tech cards, how likely will you get in that situation?

    I am unsure of the value of this. Maybe if a new tradable and cycle heavy deck appears in the meta.

    Ah, the good ol' keyword-support-neutral-legendary of the set, just like Y'Shaarj, the Defiler. How good this is remains to be seen depending on how good the tradeable cards are, but the effect seems quite strong as it turns every Tradeable card into Tracking.

    Nice simple assist to the Tradeable mechanic. Will probably see play.

    Ironically, this card could also have used the keyword tradeable for all the times that you don't have tradeable cards in your hand. Yeah, I don't think this card will be played much at all.

    This card is so sweet. Remember that it only costs 1 mana to trade, so you can really go off with this.

    This is very good. It basically turns all of your tradeable cards into Tracking, which makes for incredible cycling when you can play 3-4 of them in a turn.

    This might flop if decks don't run enough tradeable cards, but has potential if any deck at all does run many...

    Good cost and ability though not sure if this will find a spot in decks, the kinda best place for this is Control decks, but you don';t actually want to be trading a lot.

    It seems like a good enough card in vacuum, but I don't see the practical uses of it. Sure, it turns your tradable cards into even better draw, but you have to have the combination of this card in hand, a tradable card in hand, and no use for the tradable card at the moment. It feels like a lot to set  up.

    Unfortunately, common sense isn't as common as it should be.

    Unless you really want to bank on the Tradeable cards, this is just another meme card

    I'm putting this at 2 stars, it's only a minor buff to the Tradable mechanic, but I do see the potential with Combo decks to use this as a sort of repeatable Sphere of Sapience to pull out specific combo pieces out of the deck.

    Indeed, mandatory new supportive toy to play along the new keyword.

    Essentially Tracking, but paying an extra 2 mana, though you can possibly use several times in the same turn. Probably doesn't make the cut however.

    This seems like some nice support for the Tradeable mechanic.

    Really interesting card. She basicly relies on tradeable being good to see play. As long as you have a bunch of tradeable cards in your deck it might be worth using her so every tradeable card basicly turns into Tracking. IF tradeable becomes an evergreen keyword then Auctioneer Jaxon only becomes a lot better, and people are already asking for that for some reason... Despite tradeable cards not being released yet... Tbh basicly every area in WoW has shopkeepers so it kinda makes sense? 

     

     

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