    Compares extremely poorly against Backstab. Invoke is not worth nearly 3 mana.

    yeah, it is too bad it is limited only to un-damaged characters.

    This card is To My Side! of this set.

    Mark my words.

    It will see more play than you thought.

    Ah and, as always, Preparation if you want to see a dead card in hand if Galakrond, the Nightmare draws it.

    yeah, the rogue glakrond has such a powerful battlecry when fully invoked, so I imagine that all rogue invoke cards will be better than we think

    it is not just battlecry. Invoke means simply "add a lackey to your hand" for rogues. its Galakrond's hero power and you should read this card as,

    "Deal 3 damage to an undamaged character(not a minion) and add a random lackey to your hand.)

    Think that it costs 2 when you attach lackey generation to a neutral 1/1 beast; EVIL Cable Rat.

    A neutral 1/1 beast costs 0; Snowflipper Penguin

    Dealing 5 damage to an undamaged character costs 3; Shadow Strike


    So this card is well-costed and fair enough in my opinion.

    + Backstab can't deal damage to face, this can. So you can't evaluate this card's damage dealing same as Backstab.

    its balancing is like; 2 mana for "Deal 3 damage to an undamaged character" and 1 mana for "Invoke".

    It seemed overly expensive to me, but your calculations are right. It may see play in many decks with Galakrond.

    The pleasure is mine.

    My last standard decks: Nothing to call home about at this time.

    I think Rogue Galkrond is very good, so I think this card is good enough.

    Looking mediocre, but i like it. I hope Galakrond decks will work!

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    again, if Galakrond Rogue works out it will be a good card, but a 3 mana Backstab is not ok for me

    I could see this being a good target for Prep, but beyond that I'm not sure the Invoke mechanic is worth the extra cost.

    I don't this this card is as expensive as people make it out to be. backstab is just to darn cheap, no rogue deck goes without it (except odd rogue). In the dalaram expansion people dismissed lackeys as a funny but weak gymic, and look how they turned out. This will see play, as well as all the rogue galakrond package, mark my words.

    I don't think the fact that this can go face makes it better (how often did you cast shadow strike on your opponent), but it's an auto-include in galakrond rogue (from what we've seen so far).

    Deal 3 damage and get a lackey? Good!

    Just rotate Preparation already. It continues to have a degenerate effect on the Rogue's mana costs. There's no reason this needs to cost 3.


    If you have the time please check out my custom expansion, The Trials Within Us!

    Originally I thought it´s really underwhelming, but that was before I learnt that playing an invoke card also does the effect of the Galakrond´s hero power. 3 damage, invoke advancement and a lackey seems good enough for 3 mana.

    Looks bad at first til you realize it also gives you a lackey as well. Seems alright

    Shadow Strike that trades 2 damage for a lackey/upgrading Galakrond. Not super strong, but strong enough to go into some decks.

    Mayble playable, a insanely worse Backstab, but this will be necessary in Galakrond decks.

    I'm sorry for my bad english :)

    Compares extremely poorly against Backstab. Invoke is not worth nearly 3 mana.

    Compared to Shadow Strike it only loses 2 damage. It's not to bad imo. Despite the Preparation nerf it still provides a good tempo removal, and fits Miracle Rogue very nicely ;)

    It's not very effective... 4 mana you deal 3 damage and get a lackey to play, which won't help you much

    Invoking is going to be required, and some of the neutral options are worse than this, but this is pretty bad. Its very expensive while also being conditional. Not unplayable, but not anything you are happy about.

    To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of the women.

    Not very interestin... an improved backstab that gives you a lackey. Might see play in arena.

    Will have to do if Galakrond Rogue is to succeed.

    Probably gonna hhave to hard mulligan for Togwaggle since you generate so many lackeys

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Compared to Backstab it's bad, but it's still somewhat decent removal with an added bonus of Invoking. Might see play
