    Absolutely bonkers, 2 mana deal 8 in Poison Rogue that draws its entire deck by turn 7 anyway.

    It'll see play, but dont expect this to ever deal that full 8 damage because rogues cant heal, and matches involving rogues dont drag past turn 10. Hell, aggressive rogue matches is even shorter, maybe turn 7 at most.

    So the powerlevel of the card is determined solely by rng, balanced by the short game matches of aggro decks. Good job team5. I just love to see myself die from a coin toss.

    Edit: It shuffles into your deck. So I guess that 8 damage will be more likely than I first thought.

    This looks good - Rogue usualy draws pretty fast so the damage output for 2 Mana is actualy insane.

    Yes, gotta change the art on Headcrack because it's too violent, but strangling your opponent to death is perfectly fine

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    2 mana deal 8 to face, sure that's a good deal, but to mana deal 2 to face certainly isn't. When is the right time to play this? Is that as soon as possible, because you'll draw those Bloods eventually. or when you're nearing the end of your deck? If you do the first your opponent has a long time to play around those Bloods and it's just a 2 mana deal at the moment, I prefer daggering up over that. But if you choose to wait towards the end of your deck this can be a dead card in your hand for a long time. No, I'm not convinced yet.

    Really strong, I think. Like reverse Soul Fragments. It's good that Secret Passage doesn't trigger Casts When Drawn effects, or this might be too good.

    Very strong burn. And I don't imagine rogue will have a hard time drawing the extra copies.

    Rogue draws a lot so this seem really good.
    What I don't like is the flavor of the mechanic, shouldn't this be shuffled in the opponent deck since the opponent is the one that's going to bleed after being hurt?

    I think this card will be quite strong. Rogue already does lots of shuffling and drawing with the current  decks. I know Secret Passagedoesn't technically draw cards, but they  do have other options. Luckily this will be difficult to generate extra copies of so we don't have a repeat of bomb warrior.

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

    Very powerful for Aggro Rogue, especially when you consider Rogue has one of the best turbo draw engines right now, Field Contact.

    This is nasty. Easy for Rogue draw most of the deck. This should see play.

    This does a ton of damage for 2 mana and very good at any stage of the game. Miracle Rogue time!

    This is a lot of potential damage for 2 mana. Sure you don't get it immediately, otherwise this card would be broken, but I'm not sure it will be a problem for Rogue to draw the rest of them. And you can always run 2 of these to increase the chance of drawing Bleeds.

    VERY strong card. This + Field Contact is strong, and it probably replaces Sinister Strike in weapon rogue. Actually weapon rogue is certainly a deck it fits in quite well, considering weapon rogue has a LOT of draw.

    The only thing i find weird about this card is that the bleeds are shuffled in YOUR deck, doesn't really make sense considering your opponent is supposed to bleed. Still the bleeds being shuffled in your deck makes Garrote a LOT better, but it's still weird.

    In wild it probably sees play in some meme deck or something, probably alongside Augmented Elekk. Actually that honestly sounds pretty fun to try out ngl. I bet Markmckz is going to make some OTK with it, which will be fun to watch.

    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.
