    Just a little side thought: imagine how this card would have been with pre-nerf Preparation.

    Now Rogue can get high cost playable spells too.

    excuse me what?

    Don't forget that Rogue is the second best at generating lots of lackey, one of which discovers a dragon, meaning even if you don't draw your dragons, you still have an out.

    Don't even need to get fancy, just run Faerie Dragon  and a few others and you're good

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    They're really pushing dragon decks, huh?

    Dragons are cool, At least they are not pushing Beast druids anymore. :)

    of the potential "dragon decks" rogue would probably be my bet to be the least likely simply because Rogue does so many other things so well.

    That said, Rogue could probably generate enough dragons on average to make this playable without much/any support besides Waxadred.

    I wouldn't be shocked if this card is played as maybe a 1-of.

    I am a bit scared of the power level of this expansion. I know, a new rastakhans rumble would be catastrophic for the sales. But we havent seen this powerful cards for a long time.

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    Better Sprint assuming Dragon Rogue becomes a thing. Given that most of Rogue's cards have been revealed and no dragons yet, I'm skeptical that will become a thing, especially when competing with two other really viable Rogue builds (Tempo and Burgle). So I'm negative on this one.

    Sprint and auctioneer have been runned before with success. One of the best toghwalge treasures is the wand. Consequently, if more good dragon are released for rogue, then I can potentially see a tier 1 miracle dragon deck.

    Draw 3 cards for 3 mana? Pretty nuts for sure.

    If there will be some decent dragons rogue can put into tempo (or maybe dragon?) deck, this will be a very good card draw (also the fact that prep + sprint combo is weakened makes this card even better)

    Inclined to agree: Dragon Rogue seems like a really cool idea, but will it find time in the sun when there are better archetypes out there? I just don't see it right now.

    Great Card for Dragon-Rogue!

    ... but, except drawing 3 Cards, what is that Deck gonna do?

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

    Ok, have another kick at our poor Arcane Intellect (which is still a good card!). If Dragon Rogue works, this card will be a big reason for it.

    A better Arcane Intellect for rogue? Certainly will see play in dragon rogue decks.

    I'm sorry for my bad english :)

    I'm really looking forward to this new Galakrond Tempo Rogue, it looks fun for the old Rogue players. This is a good card obviously, but it forces you to run multiple dragons. I don't know if there will be ones that are "good" enough, but plenty of unrevealed cards remain!

    You are right. Also you don't even need Faerie Dragon imo. with those huge lackey generation you will always find one. Even more in galakrond decks. :)

    C'mon, I am playing Dragon Rogue since Blackrock Mountain. Dragons are always good in Rogue. Azure Drake were always in Rogue lists.

    Highlander Dragon Rogue was one of my favorite decks in LoE times and after that in wild.

    You need to explore more things in classes like trying Beast Mages, Spell Damage Warriors etc.

    Game is funnier when you try things. Copy-pasteing netdecks are just boring.

    I really don't understand how people enjoys to play this game only playing netdecks.

    Tinkering decks, trying to stuff work is the most important part of the card games imo. I am really shocked when I see comments like this.

    Sorry if I offended you. Just blowed up here so don't take it personally.

    I think everyone is forgetting the new lackey which adds a dragon to your hand. You don't even need to run dragons beside Waxadred, with all the lackey generation cards and the Invoke mechanic, it should be easy to discover a dragon to activate this.

    Rogue likes to draw cards, they like even more so to do it cheaply, however, needing a dragon in your hand means that you have to play a certain number of potentially clunky minions. That means this card might not be good in the sort of deck that wants those cards. Control decks often don't want to draw a bunch of cards, so Dragon Rogue will need to fall into a Combo or Tempo deck, and it might not be able to do that.

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

    Excelent draw engine if you play a dragon rogue deck!
