    I really like this card. Getting 3 large bodies for 9 mana is not bad, and there are plenty of highlander decks that could benefit from being able to generate an extra board from 1 card. 

    I just like highlander cards ^^

    Quite some RNG range. ATM the lowroll is acceptable, the highroll supergood and on average very solid.

    Nice for Reno decks. I believe at least.

    The RNG kinda makes it hit or miss. It's a strong card for Hunter, Paladin and MAgge (and Druid if they somehow come up with a non-quest Highlander deck)

    Probably also good in Highlander Rogue if that's still a thing.

    Will feel pretty bad to play against this when it drops to large dragons, but seeing how many medium sized ones we're getting this expansion I think it'll even out.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    On average, this is just a strong tempo play, but the highroll potential is insane: Kalecgos, Malygos, a bunch of the new legendary class dragons are all extremely nutty game-winning cards, especially when discounted to zero. This card is absolutely comparable to Dinotamer Brann, and it's a neutral.

    Really nice card, the worst option is 9 mana 8/8 dragon that summon 2 3/2 elusive dragon... A worth play.

    Paladin and mage will play this for sure.

    Perfect for highlander decks. A bit RNG on the random dragon..but imagine getting a random of the same card..infinite value?

    Dragons tend to be average to large, so even with only okay rolls on the random stuff, you're easily getting 15 mana's worth of stats on 9 mana. And getting two means you'll always be able to trigger at least one Dragon battlecry if your random Dragons feature them.

    I expect existing Highlander decks will run this - nice big minion and some hand refill that may or may not be garbage. Given that Paladin both 1) seems like the current front-runner for "best dragon deck", and 2) also already has a viable Highlander deck, I would expect Highlander Dragon Paladin to run alongside "regular" Dragon Paladin and we'll see if a clear winner emerges.

    Love highlander support but seeing the rest of expansion, the effect just seems dull to me. Random dragons could be really anything with the updated dragon roster, so I expect it to be just okay most of the times when played.

    Im glad we get more highlander support. This card is nuts. Can give herself for free :-)

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    That's great. The more win cons for the highlander decks, the better. Especially for something like Highlander mage, who wasn't doing much anymore.

    It's a solid, albeit slow card that's definitively viable. I'm really interested in making a Dragon Highlander Mage, which currently looks the the primary class for that archetype. This might be too slow for Hunter.

    I'm crafting Alex for sure. Slot her in my Highlander Dragon Hunter alongside Dinotamer Brann for even more late-game freebies. Muhahaha!

    No but seriously she's a really good card that will help the Good classes stand against Galakrond. Her potential is insane.

    This for sure gives you a reason to play the LoE classes and maybe even a reason to try building some of the E.V.I.L. classes as Dragon Highlander decks. This is a cool card with a powerful effect. Just want we want from our bit late game drops. This is going to be one of those defining cards from the expansion in the best kind of way.

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

    Speaking of Wild, sadly, the large pool make every effect that generate minions far worst than on Standard. I'm a bit sad that this was an Highlander support card, since I love that kind of decks.
