    I can't really think of a tempo based class t hat reliably plays 3-4 cards per turn early except for maybe Rogue but they have better things to do than run this.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Most cards with the same kind of effect have always been good, so this will probably be good as well. But it might need a bit of time or the right deck in order to become a powerfull aggro tool. Don't underestimate this card.

    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.

    I think it’s weak.

    Garbage. Compare Stockades Prisoner to this and I'd rather not play this.

    Rogue and Mage are the immediate thoughts on who'd want this, and I don't think it's in high demand. 

    Chumbawumba is the worst band name.

    This is just a worse Stockades Prisoner.

    You make a very good point here! Touché!
    I'd rather play neither

    Its not that bad honestly. Basically this is a free 3/3, realistically maybe around turn 3. Coin on turn 2 into double 1 drops and you've flooded the board.

    If its ever meta it'll no doubt inflame lots of players and trigger yet more questions on whether the coin should be considered a played card.

    The main usage I see for this cards are decks with a large second player disadvantage. Being able to basically turn your coin into a pre-nerf innervate can help these decks get back some of the tempo they lost by going second. Still a big if though.

    Very good for a cheap spells, can be useful in hunter with all secret synergy or in a secret paladin build

    I wouldn't dismiss this one. Unlike Stockades Prisoner, which always costs 2 mana, this is potentially a free minion. A better comparison would be Happy Ghoul and Frenzied Felwing. Both of those saw play in Wild Aggro decks, so this has a pretty good chance of being a good card.

    Put your faith in the Light!

    Very easy to do in miracle priest/rogue. You'd ideally want to play this at 1 or 0 mana, so a deck with lots of small stuff will like this. Probably aggro but hard to tell if a 0 mana 3/3 is any good in this mess of a meta we currently have in HS.

    A 2 mana 3/3 is alright, I think, and this could be free. Now what classes are most likely to play the cheapest cards?

    This seems like it could be very easily abused in the right aggro deck. Definitely should keep an eye on it.

    So 0 mana 3/3 for rogues? Seems ok.

    I love love love cost reduction!  This will be a staple in most rogue and druid decks I think.

    The decks I see this as being a natural fit in is Rogue or aggro. Aggro decks have used a similar card previously that was discounted based on enemy face damage. This one could fill a similar role. Now, what deck exists that could replace a current card with this one and improve? I don't know.

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

    If you're including this in a deck it better be reliably costing nothing, otherwise you've wasted the card slot.

    I think this is very likely to see play in aggressive decks that run a lot of 1 and 0 Cost cards and can reliably get him out for very little mana very early in the game. Druid especially springs to mind with Innervate and Lightning Bloom, but Hunter has Devouring Swarm and Rogue has Shadowstep and Backstab, so there are a lot of decks that can get him out early and often.

    I have spoken.
