    It's like Deck of Lunacy but comes later and cheat less mana.

    Maybe can fit in a Deathrathle deck to get some late fuel, the DR package looks midrangy and you can swing the game against any control deck that survive till late late game.

    By The Holy Light!

    I'm glad to see some support for Burgle Rogue this time around.
    It makes for silly unpredictable games !

    Arena: Considering that you have significantly more neutrals in your deck than in your average constructed deck and considering that neutrals are generally weaker than class cards, this is more than just a meme in arena. The synergy among those random minions isn't always there, but the same goes for arena in general, and the 2 mana discount on the minions is substantial. Not quite like the new Lady Prestor, but on a lucky day Cera'thine Fleetrunner could be just as strong.

    Constructed: Will see play, but only as a meme and for the inevitable achievement.

    Arena > Wild > Standard

    Its another one of those cards thats specifically designed for fun, which means any rating or review is fairly pointless. I will say though, that if Deck of Lunacy can be one of the scariest card in its lifetime, then this can as well.

    But that's the issue isn't it. If it does get viable, it'll be immediately nerfed, because team5 understands that cards like these tend to divide opinion when it gets good. So the question would be: just why? Its not like rogue has crystalized in terms of variety, so where's that deathrattle support which Ive been clamoring for since the last expansion?

    Meme fun card.

    Same spirit as Deck of Lunacy but likely not as broken IMO. RNG Spells are better and the pool is smaller than RNG minions. It also costs 1 more.

    I'm not sure the comparisons to Deck of Lunacy are quite right. The way I read the text here, Cera'thine Fleetrunner swaps minions for totally random class minions (e.g. a 1 mana 1/1 could turn into a huge minion with a reduced cost), whereas Deck of Lunacy's transformation is anchored in the cost of the spells. If my reading is correct, then while this isn't particularly impressive in Standard, all you'd need is a few cards like Bloodsail Flybooter to turn a hand full of generated garbage into a hand of....well, probably still generated garbage, but it would be much better garbage with a huge discount.

    It's not a great card, but there have been cards like it (e.g. Elise Starseeker/Golden Monkey or Arch-Villain Rafaam) that see play in control archetypes and similarly swap your hand deck for some (potentially) game-winning value when a match-up calls for it. The fact that you're only swapping minions is actually probably a boon because you get to keep card draw and burst damage. So, you're probably not building a deck around her, but I wouldn't count Cera'thine Fleetrunner out.

    Reminds me of Deck of Lunacy and Lilian Voss. This is meme-tier, and will make for fun games, but not a very competitive card.

    Lol another meme legendary for rogue and this one will see much less play than the new Scabbs Hero. One of those eternally inconsistent cards that will never be as good as Deck of Lunacy due to neutral minions and there's so many bad minions out there...

    Least every game will feel entirely different from the last

    TREMBLE before.... the most legendary dragon that ever existed!

    ...but let's face it, control is dead 😭💔

    Fun meme but absolute trash. Might be worth considering for some Deck of Lunacy type shenanigans if it said the minions got replaced by minions of the same cost, but in its current form it's just way too random.

    This is definitely a fun meme card, and should not be judged by its ability to win games. It's just for fun, and I think it fills that role pretty well. However, there's no way I would want to play this in Wild Burgle Rogue, solely because of Tess Greymane.

    I have spoken.

    I"m always skeptical with these types of cards.  Simply put, they only really belong in niche decks.  And having a legendary be a meme or niche deck cards makes me frustrated because it could be so much more.

    As meisterz39 pointed out, it's almoat nothing like Deck of Lunacy as it generates RANDOM COST minions which it then discounts by 2. It also doesn't generate neutral minions, so no fear in getting random trash neutrals. Trash class minions exist but they're still contextual trash, almost any class minion could prove useful in specific situations. 

    Not seeing good use still, but I believe it may be used... Well no I can't see it used in anything else but a zoo/aggro deck which rogue can't quite excel with as the class spells don't really shine for zoo

    I think this is a must-pick in Arena every time. Because it's fun af. Is it good? Hell naw, your 6 mana Claw Machine is probably equally as good as whatever 4 mana 6 drop from a random class so eliminating the need to play a 5/5 do nothing 5 drop. Not to mention weird cards you might get stuck in hand. Awesome meme power love it

    This clearly goes in a deck with Maestra of the Masquerade. Or, well, this only affects minions. Still.

    Cera'thine Fleetrunner is basicly the Deck of Lunacy for minions. And i'm not sure if that's good enough for rogue in standard. However rogue does have a LOT of draw, so it can probably be decent? Most of rogue draw besides Field Contact is spell based, and Cera'thine Fleetrunner doesn't transform your Shadowcrafter Scabbs so that's good as well. I do see a future for Cera'thine Fleetrunner in standard, especially as she only generated class cards which are almost always better than neutrals. 

    I wonder if she will generate all minions at once or each card at a time. All at once means that she transforms all cards into lets say random priest minions, or with each card at a time you might get a priest, paladin, warlock etc. minion. For example Clever Disguise generates 2 cards from the same class, which is what i mean with "all minions at once". 

    I think she has potential is standard, However i feel like Wild is less nice to her.

    Well in wild she's BAD, and i say that as a burgle rogue ENTHEUSIAST. You can only play her after you play Spectral Cutlass, but then you might remove some weapon buff minions, In Bazaar Burglary she might be decent as long as the quest counts the transformations, otherwise your stuck unable to complete quest. Okay tbh Bazaar Burglary is completed around turn 2-3 max, sometimes turn 4 so not that bad. HOWEVER the BIGGEST problem with Cera'thine Fleetrunner is that she cannot be used alongside Tess Greymane! That's right, the ULTIMATE Burgle rogue value bomb you work towards cannot be used alongside Cera'thine Fleetrunner. Which means only Bazaar Burglary decks without Tess Greymane is her only home.

    That being said, as a burgle rogue entheusiast OBVIOUSLY i'm still insta-crafting her if i dont get her from packs. And i'm not joking. Last expension i said the exact same thing about Maestra of the Masquerade, and guess what. I DID IT, and i WILL do the same with Cera'thine Fleetrunner. (Tbh i crafted maestra like a month after release cuz i didn't have the dust, but at the same time i knew she was bad but still commited. I have no regrets, and Maestra in weapon rogue is so much fun against questline mage. >:D )

    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.

    No way to tutor this and no Tess means it’s not so good.
