    There has got to be some kind of rogue exclusive deathrattle in the works because there's no chance this card is printed without one. At the moment, only two cards are worth the trouble running this, Ticket Master and Infiltrator Lilian. The rest are really stuff rogue doesn't typically need like Explosive Sheep and Death's Head Cultist.

    Mana cost is a bit on the expensive side, but if the deathrattle is worth it then this will feature in nicely.

    I agree, but as is it still opens up a deck idea to toy with.

    I think the Mana cost is fine if you are focused something like Lilian, because it curves into Counterfeit Blade, which notably cares about friendly Deathrattles that have been triggered, not necessarily died.

    That's actually a good point, that it does curve into the blade.

    Which makes it even more important that the deathrattle should give out minions, because otherwise we're toying with the idea of basically zero board development for 2 turns and that's usually a losing play for rogue.

    Looks decent enough to see play even tough we do not have many good Deathrattle you could use this with. Still some that make this playable but maybe there will be some new Deathrattle Cards you could use this with.

    Now we just need something really sick to prep this one out on 1

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Ooh this seems like a very fun card alongside Infiltrator Lilian and Counterfeit Blade. "Scream rogue" is what that could be called lol. Actually Sketchy Information on turn 3 into turn 4 Counterfeit Blade is pretty good because Counterfeit Blade only requires TRIGGERED deathrattles, no need for a deathrattle minion to have died.

    However there might be more to this than meets the eye. We have only gotten 3 rogue cards revealed so far, and thats including Sketchy Information. So maybe the questline is about triggering deathrattles, or the rogue legendary has deathrattle synergy.

    One thing is for certain though, this Counterfeit Blade and Sketchy Information package really needs a tradeable deathrattle minion with a good effect in order for this to see actual play .

    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.

    Targeted draw effects are almost always very good cards to use. It looks like there are some plans on a deathrattle rogue archetype in the works. I think this will be a pretty  fun card to work  with.

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

    I'm very interested to see what comes out along with this. If not this expansion, then ones down the line. This has potential to be game winning if the right card gets printed.

    Comparable to Hunter's Nine Lives: same cost, same effect, just finding it at random in your deck instead of your graveyard, and with a cost cap (which is a good thing for balance). I think it will be pretty good!

    Nice, Infiltrator Lilian and Ticket Master seems some of the best, I would also add the prime but just because I like attrition games. Another good thing is that Counterfeit Blade won't be drawn and do nothing since it does not actually have deathrattle passively.

    Maybe some kind of deathrattle shuffle rogue, but that doesn't seem good

    It's a tutor that has an immediate impact, seems pretty dope even if it doesn't fit into a specific deck currently.

    Rogue has a lot of draw. However if one or two good cheap deathrattle gets printed this would see play. As it stands not sure what I'd want to trigger with this yet.

    Nice catch - the possible interaction with Counterfeit Blade makes me hopeful that Deathrattle Rogue could be good

    Very good, obvious synergy with Counterfeit Blade. You don't even need to run a lot of deathrattles to make it good, just Infiltrator Lilian and 2 copies of some good 4-mana Deathrattle minion I assume we have yet to see would do it.

    It's a question of the other two deathrattles in deck being worth it because with Lily it's already superb value. Not sure ticketmaster is good enough but, hey, maybe they are.
