    Interesting card, but its cost may be too high to make him a consistent card for Value purposes.

    Still solid for some Combo.

    Seems decent but really hard to get value from.

    Has a lot of potential (0-mana Shirvallah, the Tiger + this on turn 9 is really strong).

    This card will probably be too slow to be good. But I am very excited to try it out in some weird greedy control decks with this.

    I recall seeing a similar card in Hearthcards. I think it's a slow, but flexible, card: Copying a minion on the battlefield gives way for end-of-turn shenanigans, putting a copy of a minion into your hand enables multiple-turn aggro/defensive plays(potential triple King Krush, anyone?), shuffling a copy of a minion into your deck can be late game-changing (Shirvallah, the Tiger, or a hail-mary Zephrys the Great, maybe). Being a 9-drop also dampens the Evolve/Conjurer's Calling pool.

    Well it's over

    Could this be a hint at next year having a legion theme?

    I think this card will be very strong with reborn and deathrattle minions. Especially in priests with their re-summons and Grave Horror and in Rogue with Anka and 1 cost minions . also any deck that runs two Khartut Defender should consider it

    Interesting card . I am sure someone will find a way to exploit the 3 copies for some OTK / infinite value loop. Some cards are nice to have multiplies of like Zephrys or Rag, but he will be leaving?

    I haven't read any busted combos with this yet. But it seems like a card that is unique enough to see some niche competitive play at some point during its life cycle.

    No they won't cost 25, that's not how Shirvallah, the Tiger works. The discount from playing spells applies to ALL copies of Shirvallah, including ones you generate or bounce (technically the game applies the discount when it enters your hand, hence why the Holy Wrath combo deals 25 damage not 0 damage).

    So if you play a (0) mana Shirvallah and then play Sathrovarr on it you'll end up with 2 Shirvallahs in play, another in hand that costs (0), and another in your deck that when you draw it you can play for (0). In a Shirvallah OTK deck that could be a pretty powerful spike that keeps the Holy Wrath combo intact.

    Even if very slow, I think it will be a nice add to many control oriented play style and decks.  Wild Reno-lock's list, namely, could benefit from such card's effect and tribe tag, as it conveniently fits multiple purpose at once. You could play Faceless, Baleful and Zola AND have just get this guy to do the same, as a backup plan.

    It is like the Swiss army knife of control decks!

    This fella used Sathrovarr on my Kun. Guess "friendly" in card's text means nothing.

    You should open a ticket on the official HS forums, link this screenshot to them.  Probably just a bug.  Add it to the current bug list...

    Been playing a bit of OTK Paladin now that Sathrovarr has been released and I have to say I'm impressed. I thought it would feel like a win-more card but it really isn't: it adds a huge spike/recovery turn that would otherwise cost you half of your combo damage to pull off before you empty your deck. Not only that, the sheer value of the card gives you some amount of lategame reach beyond the combo itself.

    The fact that you can summon 14/21 points of rushing, lifestealing damage and still have Shirvallahs left over for your bankers to copy makes this guy a must in OTK paladin and might make it the deck to beat, at least until the full set releases.

     

    Edit: Sathrovarr might also make a pretty good card for quest druid as long as Kun, the Forgotten King remains in standard. Not only is it great tempo and value to clone your Kun, the extra armor allows you to get out of reach of OTK paladin's burn, which can be pretty tricky if you're relying only on Hidden Oasis and Ferocious Howl.

    Have great fun with this card in a OTK mage deck featuring Malygos, Alexstrasza, Archmage Antonidas etc. Works perfectly in combination with Galaxy spell.

    You are right. It's disgusting in OTK Paladin. The "extra" Shirvallahs are zero mana cost as well if you have spent enough on spells already. I really hope this deck doesn't take off between now and Dec 10 because it's awful to play against

    Put him in over Subdue if you are running that. No reason to subdue someone when you can just split their soul apart.

    I'm not running Emperor T which I see some people playing, and only one Flash of Light. It's probably easier to just post my own little homegrown list because there's a lot of ways you can tweak the deck. I'm by no means claiming that this is an optimised decklist by the way; I've only really started playing OTK pally now that Sathrovarr has made it OP.
