Bad art, solid card.
4/8 Taunt for 6 is solid vanilla stats. Discovering a dragon off it makes it a really solid card.
So strong, stand alone. If Dragon Druid is somehow not pushed completely out of the picture by the Quest, this card is a no brainer.
Think this will be strong in general, but will really shine in Highlander Druid. I can also see this being excellent in Wild Taunt Druid since there's already so much dragon synergy in what that deck was when it was Standard.
Solid card overall. But with druid not being an evil class with acess to the new lackey, and with the quest in the same rotation, I see no need to play this card or a dragon druid quest in general, for now. I believe that if a choose one dragon appears, or a really good early mana dragon for druid, we might se a quest dragon package.
Arena wise, this is top tier. Value plus big taunt body.
I really liked this one. Solid card with good stats
Really good! Even outside of dragon decks.
Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!
don't forget class bonus is gone. Also, Dragon Druid doesn't have a win condition yet and Quest Druid outvalues it any day
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
Quote From YourPrivateNightmaredon't forget class bonus is gone.
don't forget class bonus is gone.
I keep forgetting that they removed that; it was such a stealthy nerf.
Anyway, I'll echo the others and suggest that the card is pretty good. Solid stats and a free replacement minion in-hand; it all depends on how much additional support Dragon Druid gets.
...not that it will stop me from playing such a deck anyway heh.

Super powerful card. A solid taunt minion that triggers dragon cards and then gets you a dragon when you play it so that you can still trigger dragon cards and get further value later in the game.
First rule of the English language: Their our know rules.
Nothing fleshy, but does it´s job well I guess. I know that Stonehill was on another level, but a high health taunt that provides value is always nice!
Seems too good not to run in Dragon Druid since you want more dragons in your hand.
Tons of value, a big body, as well as helping out to activate the ramp card. Definitely killer in arena, probably pretty strong in constructed too
Who needs consistency when you could have fun?
Jade Behemoth of Dragon Druid decks if there will be one. But there is no reason to not have one while Druid has Wild Growth back with Breath of Dreams (it even draws a card ! ).
Very solid. Vanillia stats plus taunt plus discovering a dragon (currently more weighted to late game). With "dragon wild growth" I could see this getting play.
Good body with taunt, and give value, certainly will see play in dragon druid, in arena is a very solid pick too.
I'm sorry for my bad english :)
If Dragon Druid is to be a thing, this card will be key. It's too early to say whether or not the archetype will be good, but this is a fine start :D
Definitely a good card. Definitely a GREAT Arena card.
Emerald Explorer is not only a solid defensive minion for keeping you alive, but also generates you an additional resource for free, one which can further empower and enable dragon synergy cards.Overall, the pool of dragons you can get is fairly strong, especially in the classic set. I can easily see this being a staple in any sort of dragon deck, and very good in other contexts as well.
Great stats for a taunt minions, in a class that wants it, plus value, plus a relevant minion type. Seems very good.
To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of the women.
Some Taunt Dragons that were not as good as this one, and also slower than a 6 mana, have seen plays, so I wouldn't be surprised if this one makes it too.
“One day, you will be old enough to start reading fairytales again.”
auto included in every druid deck, dragon or not dragon ones
Not too shabby, though I can't see this being played all that much in wild.

I know they've kind of nerfed discover a bit - but it's still a very strong effect. And here you're discovering from a pool of already very strong cards - that are going to synergise with your deck - because you're playing dragons. It can discover itself too!
