    Edit:

    The card only looks at cards that started in the opponent's deck. So there is a lower likelyhood of an obvious choice.

    On Wild often you don't want a card from your opponenet deck, but considering that the only Priest's archetype actually going around is (again) Big Priest you simply don't want a 2/2 with a battlecry.

    On a non-resurrect deck, it still a bit too much situational for the Wild meta but may be good in a control vs control scenario (probably if you also are an Highlander and have an open slot to put this in).

    Curious Glimmerroot but you have a better idea of what's in their hand right at this moment. Glimmerroot saw play; I'm sure this will as well.

    Looks like a pretty powerful tool. You get some information about what is your opponent (not) hodling and you can potentially get a card.

    Maybe in Control-Priest?

    It's weaker than Lazul though. And what are you gonna do with a Card that most-likely doesn't fit into your deck/Game plan anyway?

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

    Fun to combo with lazul self but otherwise it could be kinda hard knowing which card your opponent exactly has in their hands and the question is is the card your getting even worth gaining?

    Versus zoo warlock for example getting a flame imp just ruins your day more most likely.

    In other match ups it could fare better an warrior holding on to a brawl is usually a pretty easy giveaway.

    A bit disappointed, the effect isn't new. Hoped for a bit more originality from them. Gameplay wise this is probably just Curious Glimmerroot powercreep. It's a value effect so better if it costs less mana and copying from hand is usually better than from deck. 

    I'll boop you

    A little tougher than Glimmerroot to activate, but also gives you more relevant information. I like it.

    I really liked the plant that did the same with the opponents deck. Need some luck, but the card is great.

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    If this takes hand buffs into account it will be easy to find the card but if it doesn't it might be a bit harder but I feel like most of the time you'll get the card due to archetypes 

    Only a fool thinks they know everything. I admit that I know nothing

    A bit weird, but I think I’d prefer Lazul for the guaranteed card and more information, even if this costs 1 less.0

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    Curious Glimmerroot and Madam Lazul long lost child. Still, really decent stats for its cost and knowing what your opponent is always nice. All this card needs now is a viable archetype to fit in. Currently priest doesn't play such decks.

    I think it's a little better than Glimmerroot, so the power level is enough high to see play.
    The problem is there's no current Priest archetype that want to play it.
    Hope to see Control Priest or Dragon Priest reborn from ashes.

    If it works like Curious Glimmerroot (meaning you get 1 card from opponents hand and 2 random nonsense cards ) you will copy a card pretty much everytime. Problem is, even with Galakrond, what is your win condition as a Control Priest? Fatigue? Inner fire?

    Don’t guess what your opponent has, necessarily. Check if he/she is holding a big removal/ control (if that’s a given option

    I think it's a solid card to play in reno decks, but I'm not sure if the deck has room for it.

    I'm sorry for my bad english :)

    Imagine getting a quest (yes, glimmerroot used to present them as an option sometimes; dunno if this is still the case). Well, I was hoping my Steal Priest deck would get some support. Can't wait to give this bad boy a try.

    Kinda hard rate so far but I love a good 2 drop for priest.

    A cheaper reprint ofCurious Glimmerroot. A card that replaces itself is always good (although this is situational and only a 33.3% chance) and with the value-generation theme Priest seems to be getting (i.e. Priest Galakrond's hero power) and Priest's ability to board control, this card might fit the best in Control Priest, or even a minion-focused Thief Priest deck that utilizes Princess Talanji

    Well it's over

    'sort of' budget Lazul

    If you guess it right, then the value would be pretty decent 2/2 + a card is pretty gud

    A very good card but it depends heavily on the support priest gets this expansion. A different archetype would have to emerge to fit this in I think, I don't see it either in combo or resurrect priest.

    Interesting but it’s been a long time since these types of cards haven been meta defining.

    Ohhh this one is very interesting, and I think it´s going to see play. It´s better than Glimmerroot, because you get a guaranteed info about which card is in your opponent´s hand at the moment. I like this card.

    I'm usually the one that guesses it all wrong during these reveals, and seeing as many of the comments are negative, and I just rated this a 5-star card, I might continue to do so... But, like, how could a 2-mana, (possible) card generator, which gives you information about your oppoent's hand be bad?! To me, it's an excellent 2-drop, specially for priest, who lacks in decent 2-cost cards...

    The strength of this card depends on where the AI gets the two "wrong" options,

    • if it's from the opponents deck- it would be difficult to guess and you would not get value 66% of the time
    • if it's from all the pool of cards that can possibly be in your opponents deck-  it would probably be as good as Lazul or Glimmeroot
