    Lol. It makes sense they could get a pandaren to claim to be on both sides (even if it is a little anachronistic since Pandaria hadn't been found yet and the few pandaren roaming Azeroth wouldn't yet have had either affiliation).

    Power-wise, I think the battlecry resolves before Maestra would turn you back into a rogue, in which case it would be pretty easy to trigger this on turn 3 with practically zero set-up required. Doing that is obviously pretty solid, and a good backup plan for when you don't have a burgle card on turns 1 and 2.

    Alright this could actually make Burgle Rogue legit. 3-mana 6/6 is no joke and you can reasonably expect to get this thanks to Swashburglar and the other early steal effects...not to mention Shadowstepping memes.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Nice, this is a reference to the legendary WoW player doubleagent who managed to get to max level without choosing a faction. Glad to see him represented in Hearthstone. As to the card itself, it's a great tempo pay-off for burgle rogue that might actually make it viable.

    3 mana 6/6 is great, and you can easely bounce this a few times. Burgle rogue might be really good this expansion, and that makes me happy. I love burgle rogue and i'm happy this archetype FINALLY gets REAL support.

    Also i love how this is a pandaran, considering pandaran are technically both a Alliance AND horde race.

    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.

    Reminds me of Emerald Spellstone. This might be a little harder to activate, but should work out well.

    In my mind, its support for secret rogue, because there's really not many burgle spells in standard to get this out on 3, and Swashburglar is but one card. You can play plagiarize on 2, or just hanar into secret which will get you what you need to make this work out.

    It reads a 'copy of this'. Which means there's a chance for this to be better but probably rogue can never take advantage of it, and I think team5 tend to learn from their mistakes.

    3 mana 6/6 is no joke. The real question is, will removel/tempo be up to par and make this easy to counter or will this allow Rogues to gain early game tempo?

    Who doesn't love burgle Rogue? I was a main in standard even going into wild when rotation playing a highlander of it for years. This will definitely make me return. Love the support. But it's a Wild card. Not a Standard or Arena.

     

    Btw other burgle Rogue fans.... This week's Tavern Brawl is very fun for the play style.

    Not going to lie, I'm getting pretty pumped to try the neo-standard Burgle Rogue

    Love the lore flavor on this one, bacause almost every Pandaren felt bad after Garrosh  almost destroyed Pandaria

    Pretty great stats for 3 mana. You could do some hand buff shenanigans to get a bigger minion for the memes and this card alone incentivizes burgle rogue.  It could be a small package in a tempo rogue list but you'd want the effect to be consistent. Kinda anti-synergy with Cera'thine Fleetrunner though

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

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

    At least this card doesn't care about getting multiple cards from another class, you just need one, so all it takes is Swashburglar and you get can get two of these.

    This is a lot of tempo for turn 3, and should be fairly easy to proc thanks to Reconnaissance and Swashburglar

    Turn two The Lobotomizer with an honorable kill into this is good. The longer after that it goes, the worse it gets.

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

    Nice bit of stats and bodies on board if it goes off, but pulling it off consistently is what trips me up.

    Pretty good tempo for Burgle Rogue, with enough 1 or 2 Cost thief cards that you have a good chance of activating this on curve. I like it a lot, and I'll definitely be playing Thief Rogue with two copies of it.

    I have spoken.
