    What an interesting card. It's really strong if you can just jam it on curve and set up your next plays because you got lucky with card order but it might just be too inconsistent in that regard.

    Would put it in Quest DH but I'M not sure that deck can survive without Glide (unless Glide gets added to Core)

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Decent Card, 2 Mana 2/2 with a nice ability. I kinda see this in aggro/token-ish Demon Hunter Decks.

    Mana cheat will almost always be good. I don't see this being difficult to utilize.

    Carrion, my wayward grub.

    Without Skull of Gul'dan and Illidari Studies this card really just lost the payoff it needed. Its already hard enough to get the cards you want discounted on the far right or left, and you've still got to pay that 2 mana in this card. A faster skull would have justified most of this, since its practically the one card you'll mulligan your entire hand for anyway. And playing skull on 5 can and will still win you otherwise unwinnable matches.

    But then again, this card is still some amounts of mana cheat, so there's still hope for this card to be competitive. Just have to figure out the payoff and how consistent it would be.

    I really like this.  DH has been shown to easily manipulate their hand and deck.  GEtting the outcast on this to trigger should be a piece of cake

    Mana Cheating on a decent body. It'll see play.

    A little clunky, but could be used in combo DH decks. The mana reduction offered by the Quest really sets this minion down a peg, though. I kind of doubt we ever see this in serious decks.

    I have spoken.

    Super interesting and good card. Outcast is pretty easy to activate in DH, and DH loves mana cheat. This will see play in any DH deck that runs a bit of draw (like questline DH) and maybe some aggro DH might slot it in as well, because it can make their other minions or burn cost less mana. Great card for any DH deck.

    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.

    When has mana cost reduction ever been bad? Well, this might be bad on big expensive body. There is a reason Ancient Brewmaster was never played.

    Very poweful for discounting spells to use more naga synergies, maybe the naga decks will see some play

    Will never be a bad card, could see it be a staple through the Year of the Hydra.  Works exceptionally well with aggro decks and possible Lady S'theno combos.

    Well it pays for itself? It's definitely a nice minion for mana cheating, just not too sure which archetype would want to utilize her the most.

    Seems pretty solid! Not sure where it'd fit, but mana cost reductions are always great to have.
