    Invoke cards are overcosted so this can be seen as a refund. 3 coins can enable pretty nasty combos too. Coin is the best rogue card since day 1. It can work imo

    Cute, but I wouldn't be surprised if this card is entirely unnecessary.

    turn 1:Pharaoh Cat (or any sticky 1 drop)

    turn 2: Praise Galakrond! twice (alternate play: just 1 and play one lackey)

    turn 3: lackey or something. (alternate play, the overcosted backstab)

    turn 4: Umbral Skulker + coin lackey

    turn 5: coin + coin + galakrond + play 2 0 cost cards..

    well now this is a really strong curve

    Turn 3 Questing Adventurer, of course ;)

    The pleasure is mine.

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

    Or as Trump mentioned already, use the coins for the good ol' Auctioneer stuff, combined with Eddi. So it is really dangerous card, maybe the underdog of the expansion.

    Yes, we get it Blizzard. Galakrond is intended for Miracle decks. You dont need to be this obvious haha :P

    Do you really need those coins? Your Galakrond already will draw you 2 0-cost cards.

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    3 coins are always useful, especially in rogue. Also considering the rogue galakrond hero power, invoking is quite good and there are some nice invoke cards already, so this card will see play considering the strenght of rogue galakrond deck. It's good to say that 3 coins can be consistent combo enabler which is great in rogue.

    Seems very strong, especially for allowing some huge swing turns given how many bounce/battlecry duplications Rogue has. And also has some good meme/OTK potential as well on the "cards played this turn" mechanic for Edwin VanCleef or Spectral Pillager

    This won't see play for one simple reason: stats. Tomb pillager is a good comparison for this. while it gave one coin t«it was aggressive enough for the two main rogue archetypes: Miracle and tempo. 

    3 coins won't save the card. even if you justify a big edwin, it means you did a weak play the turn before.

    Strong Card for Miracle, but I dont think we're gonna see much of that Archetype.

    I mean, what are you gonna do with big Minions except crying after they get removed?

    On the other Hand, I think this is way more suited for Combos ( Maly + Scheme + Galakrond + Coins → ?)

    Long, drawn-out Control Match-ups with Boardclears en masse and an unbelievable amount of greedy cards?

    Would go great in my custom expansion, where the Coins generated can be used for other things. As it stands, this makes sense in a Miracle deck, of which I do not play. So...pass.


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

    Giving Rogue more ways to generate coins is scary.

    With how good Rogue's Galakrond is, this will see definitely see play.

    Miracle rogue approves it! But miracle rogue is a bit weak right now, this can possible change this? I don't think so ..

    I'm sorry for my bad english :)

    Coin generators are one of the most powerful stuff in Rogue regardless which theme they are designed.

    and this gives 3 coins. 3 coins make Edwin VanCleef single-handedly 8/8.

    If you invoked twice and holding Edwin VanCleef, it means you will have 3/3 and 10/10 at turn 4 !

    Ok, that's a lucky one, but really frustrating.

    Compared to Veiled Worshipper the stats seem a bit lackluster, but I'm definitely looking forward to a miracle based Tempo Rogue. Coins + Auctioneer have always been a good combination and with Edwin and a lot of Lackey's, I'm getting excited :D

    This gives you 6 coins with Spirit of the Shark, which can enable for a huge tempo play.

    Coins are great, especially in Rogue, and so this seems like it could be an important tool for the deck. Seems like a great card.

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

    Rogue likes coins.

    Auctioneer likes coins.

    Questing Adventurer likes coins

    Edwin likes coins.

    There's a lot you can do with 3 of them.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.
