    Unfortunately the reveal video doesn't show if the eggs are deathrattle, my guess is they are not in which case this card isn't extremely powerful if the eggs can be traded off by your opponent.

    Obviously the battlecry could be quite nice with Shudderwock, and the eggs are effectively 0/3 taunts because you definitely do not want them to hatch. 

    Could see play but if there is counter-play to the eggs hatching, then this card doesn't seem to be that powerful.

    The video shows a thunder bolt below the eggs. Its start of turn effect. Theres no skull of deathrattle

    Am I missing something or is this just a bad card? The card doesn't have an immediate effect for 6 mana, the eggs are easily clearable and even if they remain on board you still can't go face with them the next turn. Also this doesn't really synergize with anything yet so I don't see why anyone would play this.

    Dissapointing if you ask me. Two 0-3s on turn 6 are usually easy to clear, also (Quest-)Shaman can do more for less, even after Evolve rotates back.

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

    Shaman want big boards. This card gives them that. So it's a nice one I think. Time to let go of those pesky murlocs and embrace the true power of the force, I mean dragons.

    I call trash legendary. Would hate to get this from my packs.

    The Rush minions for Shaman are quite good cards, but I can't say the same for this yet. This card as a whole looks pretty slow, but it either gives: a) a wide board if all the minions survive, b) board refill if only the eggs survive or c)removal via the hatched rush minions. The one-turn delay of the hatching really dampens the power level of this card

    Well it's over

    Seems like 6 mana do nothing... But it's a dragon I guess. Doesn't feel like it will make dragon Shaman a thing, and Shudder has better battlecries to use

    Looking bad for me, but can be good in new aggro sham. Board builder. Maybe midrange sham will use it, but looks like worst class legendary dragon so far.

    Trash card.

    0/3 eggs will not survive unless shaman gets some kinda of Frost Nova.

    By The Holy Light!

    d) nothing if nothing survive

    At this point Explodinator has more value. It's cheaper, has magnetic synergy, bombs can be bloodlusted next turn and in worst case deal 4 face damage.

    Interesting card. If the opponent cant clear the whole board, they have to decide to remove the eggs OR the 5/5 dragon. Maybe the eggs can function as soft taunts to protect smaller things?

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    This Battlecry stuff for Shaman is now getting out of hand.  With CTW this will summon 4 eggs. Not going to bother with Shudder because he will be gone in April.

    It is a soft taunt for control shaman. It is a well balanced card that brings some nice value to the player.

    Shaman decks like to go wide on the board, but this is super low impact on 6, and the payoff can be destroyed by your opponent without mic work. Maybe there’s a Dragon Shaman deck that wants this, but it’s a bit clumsy.

    this is pretty trash, compared to the other dragons. idk maybe it's good enough to run if dragon shaman ever takes off?
