    The flavor on this one's great although I doubt it's very practical. You basically require this to proc at least once to pay for itself otherwise it's a really bad deal...and it's not like a 3/5 is threatening on its own so your opponent can just...ignore it.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Seems solid in aggro decks. If Honorable kill isn't a succes as a keyword, then [Hearthstone Card (Korrak, the bloodrager) Not Found] is almost unkillable... unless you have a transform or silence card. It's also a really interesting Tamsin's Phylactery target. Makes your board very annoying. This must be why we got Mass Polymorph.

    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.

    Better question: how it works with Sketchy Information? Or with any deathrattle trigger effect? He only can be HKed during enemy turn, so does that mean he always resummon himself during your turn? And what "resummon" means? Is it just "summon copy" or maybe he dies after triggering deathrattle?

    What's the most powerful card in Hearthstone?

    A credit card.

    It has been confirmed by Bliz that Sketchy Information will summon a copy of Korrak.  With Forsaken Lieutenant if you hit some with 3 attack it will summon a new Korrak

    Its just one of those amusing deathrattle cards where the minion just will not die. Worth mentioning that just because it has 5 health that doesn't mean you have to deal 5 attack to it to kill it permanently. All it takes is for an attack to honor kill him, so a bunch of 1 attack dudes can kill this thing.

    Deathrattle rogue would love it, but sadly its stats leaves plenty to be desired, and without rush even a board full of these are just useless against a board from your opponent, who will happily ignore it and kill you.

    But being what it is, its a persistent minion that will sometimes never die because your opponent simply do not have a way to honor kill him, like warrior and their almighty Brawls. So much like Moonfang, sometimes its just so good in a meta that it'll be there despite all its shortcomings.

    This is neat. Really good in Arena, but not very good in constructed as the 3 damage it represents is too low to really be a nuisance.

    A real nuisance of a card! In the moonfang vein where one's opponent probably has to do something weird to remove it. Watch out in handbuff anything: this could just take up residence on the board. 

    Chumbawumba is the worst band name.

    Avoid at all costs in Arena. Slow and easy to deal with. Should've been a 3/6. I apologize in Blizzards behalf for anyone who opens this.

    I think this is a solid card. Not that good, but not too bad either. It's been confirmed that killing this with "destroy" effects (like Twisting Nether and other straight-up removal cards) don't count as Honorable Kills, so this could be a nuisance for decks that don't play much minions. Still, it's a 4-mana do nothing, so it won't be as impactful.

    Are you trolling?  This is great in arena.  No guarantee on efficacy or number of HK cards.  Not to mention it's statline is only 1 mana point below par (-1 attack from yeti)

    For standard, sure, it'll require some gimmicks to be worth including.  But arena?  Not sure what you are smoking but you're crazy if you don't see this doing well in general in arena.

    I really like this card. Some classes simply don't have a way to do a round 5 damage, which makes it incredibly awkward to deal with. Add in some buffs, some copies and this can become a real bitch to deal with.

    Wow, very flavour for the expansion making use of new mechanic. It's a nuisance if you can't kill it definitively, maybe spending resources in an unoptimal way to get rid of it

    Pretty interesting deathrattle legendary that will see some experimentation. It's quite the funny that this card will be good if the honorable kill mechanic is bad and vice versa. It's not that threatening though being a 3/5, so probably won't be too annoying
