disappointing honestly, i dont think this would ever be good, unless undatakah also hatches the dragon?
Even with some of the best possible outcomes it seems far worse than other cards like Mechano Egg or Devilsaur Egg. In order for it to be on the same powerlevel as the Devilsaur egg it would need to summon an average of a 7/7, which is obviously not going to be the average, given the high number of lower-cost dragons
I wonder what happens if you trigger the deathrattle with something like Necrium blade. I assume it just summons the dragon you picked and the egg sticks around, but like so many cards in this set, you just can't tell by the wording.
Edit: it also might be helpful to note that the average stats for a random dragon is 13.75, so that means that for all three of your discover options, the average roll is a 7/7. The odds of not hitting an 8/8 or a 4/12 are remarkably low, unless a bunch of tiny dragons get revealed in the upcoming days.
Still a weak card tho.
Discover helps a lot, but there are still only so many Dragons worth the effort. The best Dragons generally have Battlecries, and this won't trigger them. Lastly, a compartmentalized effect means cards like Carnivorous Cube, N'Zoth, the Corruptor, and Da Undatakah cannot synergize with this "egg".
A lot of words to say this card is not great.
If you have the time, you should totally check out our weekly Hearthstone card design competitions! :D
One of the first truly awful looking cards. Like many eggs, this will have its moments to shine, but this is still a pretty tough sell. Discover is much worse than it used to be, and they haven't revealed any new ways to activate this. I mean it could be fine in Quest Paladin, but IDK why you'd pick randomness over the consistency of Mechano-Egg, though after Boomsday rotates out it could help fill that deck with a good egg. Otherwise I don't see it being good enough to see play.
To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of the women.
I don't see the fact that the deathrattle being a secret really matters. Your opponent should always consider it being the worst outcome possible. I do see it working in a deathrattle rogue deck while using Necrium Blade.
Dragons usually have large stats with dragons like Deathwing, Ysera, Malygos, Alexstrasza, Nozdormu, Onyxia, Waxadred, Evasive Drakonid and Twin Tyrant (while considering you are going for a Rogue deck).
You might get a few bad options such as Twilight Drake, Brightwing, Marsh Drake, Faerie Dragon and Dragonmaw Scorcher, but since you are using discover you should be able to get a good Dragon most of the time.
Either way, I learned to never underestimate egg cards and I do see this having some potential especially if it has the chance of getting a 12/12 as a deathrattle on turn 5.
More dragons? Yes please!
It might be fun to toy around with in a Deathrattle Hunter/Rogue, and it might even occasionally catch the opponent off-guard, but I don't anticipate it doing much better than Mechano-Egg, where Mech synergy was quite prevalent.
Is it just me or this looks like a submission on the Community Creation thread that did not made the cut?
Struggle with Heroic Galakrond's Awakening? I got your back :
At best it's gonna make it in some Meme-Egg-Deck.
And even then I doubt it'll be good.
Long, drawn-out Control Match-ups with Boardclears en masse and an unbelievable amount of greedy cards?

Small note, the wording is kinda weird, the discover effect is not worded consistently with Fatespinners choose one effect. A more clear way of phrasing this would be "Battlecry: Discover a dragon (secretly), Deathrattle: summon it". Maybe this also isn't correct because then it would imply that the dragon you discovered will go into your hand. my point is, this could be worded a lot cleaner.
About the actual card itself, this is bad. The entire point of eggs is that you can get large bodies out early, or in the case with mechano-egg, you buff it and then just have a sticky minion. but mechano egg isn't a very good card either. At five mana, you want to be doing a lot more then just setting up to summon a (semi)-random dragon on a later turn. This is too slow, and there is very little pay-off.
First rule of the English language: Their our know rules.
The price is steep, but the ability to cheat out a big dragon like Ysera could make this a viable card in a Deathrattle deck.
Love the flavour and looks like it might be best in rogue
would be interesting to see the odds of getting a good dragon via the discover mechanic. Might give it a go. “Ok” stats would have to be 8/8 to be equivalent to the same mana cost Pally Egg.
wont be able to make a judgement on how good it could be until we see all dragons in this set
Makes for good mind games I guess but otherwise very lacking highish cost random effect I guess something had to balance out all the power creep we've been getting
Only a fool thinks they know everything. I admit that I know nothing
Discover a deathwing and use that rogue card that trigger twice .. GG
I'm sorry for my bad english :)
This with Topsy Turvy, EZ 5 mana 12/12.
Kinda bad, especially with most good dragons being battlecry minions. However, the big stats with most dragons also makes this card a little better.
Well it's over
Like the design, hate the mana cost and stats.
All generalizations are false.
