    Love the flavour, question the usefulness. Druid already draws a lot and uncontrollable draw is...dangerous. It would certainly help in decks using Anacondra because you can effectively give yourself a failsafe in case your board gest wiped and you need more fuel.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Oh man, 2 mana draw 7? Obviously you need to build your board first, but still, this is bonkers.

    Amazing Token card. Aggro Druid can now dump their hand, play this, and then have a full hand and a huge board.

    This is amazing refill potential for token druid. Even a board of just two minions is 2 mana draw 2. Anything wider than that just starts to get crazy. This will be run in several types of decks.

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

    Death Druid (Compost Druid) is a long time coming.

    This is going to be nerfed... like almost immediately.  The one serious draw back for Aggro Druid is that they run out of gas relatively quick.  Even if they only get a couple of cards from it, it's enough to keep the pressure on.

    Spell Token druid is going to use this for sure. Definitely going to be strong at least as a 1 of along side Fungal Fortunes.

    Its likely to be something you'd want in a discover because if your hand is trash then this one only adds to it. Its only true hope is to somehow have more than 2 minions on board and you have 2 mana extra to spare. With the death of gibberling, that's just really never going to happen.

    But if you get it to work, it really works. Reloading is no joke, but like Cybertech Chip or Revenge of the Wild, its likely never to be as good as some may think it is.

    Very powerful draw engine, but generally when druid has a board the main thing they want to spend mana on is to make sure that board sticks. This does not impact the board, so I think that in general Druid will stick to their instant draw cards like Guess the Weight and Fungal Fortunes.

    You only need to draw 2-3 cards to get value, and in a dedicated token deck that shouldn't be hard. I like blizzard giving more recovery tools to aggro decks so that hopefully they won't have to rely on snowballing their way to victory every game but can instead be a bit slower and more controlled.

    Imagine how quickly you would complete the quest if this were a DH card.

    Very strong card for token druid decks. Token druid has a lot of ways to fill the board, and now they can turn their minions into card draw, which might make it so removing your opponents minions kinda feels bad because your reloading their hand. Yeh i bet Composting will 100% see play in token druid, and it might make it so minion based token druid decks might become a bit more common. 

    Reminder: Token druid (especially minion based ones) run out of gas FAST, and the main problem with those decks was always card draw. The reason spell Token druid got popular was because of Fungal Fortunes support giving it card draw. Now minion based token druids can actually get draw as well. I'm certainly interested in seeing which of the 2 is the strongest.

    In wild it might see play in Token druid.. unsurprisingly. Token druid in Wild is a very strong deck, and it also has draw issues sometimes. Like if you dont win the game immediately it's just a game of "please let me draw Voracious Reader please please". Draw it? you still have a chance. You dont? Might as well concede. I bet Wild token Druid will certainly experiment with it.

    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.

    Crazy cardraw for token druid. I think this might be the best druid card of this expansion

    Interesting way to draw cards. The minions need to die though so not sure what this card is really accomplishing, considering token druid likes to buff their minions so they stick around. Guess it's a nice comeback card when you're up against a big board

    Should only be viable in Token Druid, but that archetype wants to stay on board and not draw cards instead. Confusing card to say the least.

    Oh, here's the draw (get it) for minion based token decks. Though they, sadly, have to die to draw, so if you can kill them, you trade, draw, refill, try again next turn.
