    I don't know why this card isn't a parrot themed card.

    Good stats for 3 mana, and is guaranteed value at some point. The fact your opponent can play around it is kinda weak though.

    So this is very interesting because it basically forces your opponent to decide what they actually want to give you. Could be really interesting forr Quest Priest if you're going 2nd because it could alllow you to play a 3-drop that finds you a 4-drop which significantly imrpoves quest consistency (even though the deck itself would still be shit)

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Alright just seeing the flavor of this card, and it's fun effect. I'm rating it 5/5 stars already. 

    It has premium stats and it messes up your opponents turn, because they dont want to give you anything usefull. Also i'm happy to see some thief priest cards printed, considering that archetype never got as much love as Burgle Rogue. I think it sees play in any control priest decks, as a value generator. And it fits well in Questline Priest, because you can both play a 3 drop for the questline AND potentially get something you need to further complete the quest.

    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.

    This is card is insane mostly because your opponent can't play around this and advance their game plan, since they always need to consider what they are giving you. And since most good cards are played on curve, this card will almost always give you a good card, like Doomhammer, or even a hero card, or your opponent basically plays off curve which is a win for you too.

    The only reason this card isn't 5 stars to me is because you're basically giving up 3 mana to get one card the next turn so you're always one turn slower than your opponent. And since this card has no taunt, that's basically do nothing for a turn. For a class like priest that may not be always manageable.

    If people can easily play around Mirror Entity, they can play around this. This isn't even hidden.

    Only problem is it's a bad top deck. Other than that it's amazing. Play it on 3 and even if they give you the coin it's still a win!

    We've seen cards that give you a copy of the last card your opponent played. I'm not sure this will be as good since your opponent could deliberately give you something crappy. Or at least not helpful in your current situation. I don't recall any other delayed battlecry effects either.
