    Egg Factory sounds nice but at 3-mana this is really slow and rather anti-tempo if you don't have small fodder to get it going. Could be really strong too if the Egglock plan works out.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Seems interesting for Zoolock, but might be too slow. That being said the ability to kill your own egg cards is pretty good, and potentially tunring a random 1/1 imp into a 4/4 is pretty nice. But still it might be too slow.

    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.

    Finally Egg Warlock will be good. Egg turn 2, this turn 3, more eggs turns 4 and 5.

    Good in Zoolock. Being able to turn that 1/1 Imp into a 4/4, for 3 turns, will be really powerful.

    Egglock support as others have identified.  But....3 mana is a pretty critical turning point from early game to mid-game.  This means lock will have to be strong on 1 and 2 drops.  In a meta that supports this, this means other aggro decks or early control spells/aoe .

    If this type of deck ever becomes meta, be prepared to see the return of Chain Lightning, Landslide, or Perpetual Flame in shaman decks.  I'm fairly certain shaman in the next expansion will hard counter egglock pretty handily because of all the tools they have and are being given (namely the hero card).

    Its an egg cracker or token turner. It does curve out from Nerubian Egg, so there's no doubt in my mind that its designed as a deathrattle trigger.

    And for consistency, Sacrificial Summoner can crack eggs too. I think we're really on the way to seeing egglock take center stage.

    I kinda like how it will all be happening at the end of your turns, giving you a good control over the sacrificial token.

    I like it; synergy with Nerubian Egg is obvious, and there's actually a lot of 1/1 Imp generation with Wicked Shipment and Fiendish Circle. My only problem is that the 4/4 Shades don't seem to be demons so loses a bit of synergy with Shady Bartender or the like.

    This has potential in Egg Warlock, but I kind of feel like we now have too many enablers and too few actual eggs, and this isn't the best enabler due to its delayed impact.

    So you want to play this in a zoo/egg deck where you want to kill a 1/1 and get a 4/4. Kinda reminiscent of Disciplinarian Gandling but you can still setup your board before end of turn to sacrifice a weak minion. I wouldn't play this on turn 3 though, you'd loose too much tempo, unless you had an egg on turn 2

    Too many steps involved to make this work.

    The good aspect of this is fact that it works with board itself so if we already have an Egg there, it will instantly gain value. To be honest this with combination of new legendaries for lock might bring some sort of zoo back. Not really happy about it but everything will be better to play against than questline.

    Sounds like a good zoo card. But what do I know?

    Great for Zoo/Egglock. Could also be kind of sweet for some Zoo/Midrange Deathrattle Warlock that runs cards like Burning Blade Acolyte or Vectus for the tail end of this effect.

    This will be pretty strong in a zoolock deck. They already have some minions that have synergy with being sacrificed. As long as you dont forget and put something important in the low spot, you should be good.

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

    A strange one. Seems quite anti-tempo, but destroying a minion to get a 4/4 isn't all that bad, especially when it's set up so well for synergies. Being able to continue using it for the next few turns is also really good, provided you can keep feeding it.

    Works really well with an Egg Warlock. Disciplinarian Gandling hasn't seen a lot of play in Zoo, but maybe not that there's another acrd with his same ability it gives Warlock enough of a reason to build an Egg Zoo around Gandling and the Graveyard.

    I have spoken.
