    I would have to see the other Shaman cards, because this is a bit of an odd duck. Sure you can pair it with Corrupt the Waters, but is it worth the effort? I don't know yet.

    Right niow it looks controversial to me. The 13-13 stats we can get for 6 mana are very good. But the card is slow and we come to the same question as usual - will we be able to play this card and survive? I think it may find it's place in some decks especially after the next rotation in April. And it may get some support in future expansions. And yeah, a good card for arena =)

    It is a wierd card for sure, but i am certain the card will see some play in the future, if not in this meta. The card has alot of space to grow.

    I don't think this card can see play in currently played Shaman archetypes, but we haven't seen the Galakrond for the class yet. Maybe this card will be amazing there.

    Very cool card.  Perhaps Aggro Dragon shaman will be viable

    If the eggs hatches the stats of this card are insane for 6 mana, key part is "if".

    Even if your opponent have the decision to clear the 2 0/3 or clear the 5/5; he clears the 0/3s so his minion don't get damaged, in the end the 5/5 stays alive one turn...it doesn't feel that having a 5/5 survive is a big punish.

    Seriously, in that case is like having played a 6 cost stealth tiger.

    This card is very good if played on a clear board or when you are ahead, maybe in shaman deck that will happen so frequently that this card will be worth it, for now i doubt it.

    Since they are eggs, will they also hatch if damaged? I'd hold off on a definite score for this card depending on that answer. If they are 4/4s either way, then this is really good. If not, then it's still decent, but less impressive.

    Pretty underwhelming card imo. It's slow and the eggs are easy to kill off before they hatch. At least Shaman doesn't get to much OP stuff this expansion.

    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.

    This card will surpise many of us. Dragon cards are widely associated with either midrange or control decks. Assuming shaman to run the later due to their many boardclears available, this card will become a hard choice for your opponent to either kill them and loss a turn where he's not killing you, or ignore them and assume he also lost the board next turn. It won't be gamebraking, but since its a dragon it will have a home in those decks and will become on more control tool for shaman to abuse.

    The card looks good but it's pretty slow for the current meta, don't know about its playability.

    I'm just not seeing this being overly impactful. We still need to see a lot of Shaman revealed, but right now If this is all the "dragony bits" they get I expect this will be a dead card.

    modest compared to what we've seen so far, but tbh shaman doesnt need much more atm. its legendaries in standard are all pretty strong

    Can only see this being played in battlecry quest.

    Still, even if it absorbs 6 damage and leaves you a body is enough.

    I like the mechanic of this card, but it's too slow probably. In the game if u are ahead, this is a win more that ensure board presence; if you are behind enemy can destroy egg and deny the 4/4

    However don't forget that for 8 mana quest shaman deploy 4 egg...

    Very strong card if the eggs are able to hatch, but you need a clear board to play it because two 0/3 are easily dealt with.

    So if either this card, or the eggs, get cleared off do they not hatch? Does this have to be present on the board for them to hatch? Or is the hatching effect applied as a non-deathrattle aura to the eggs?

    Seems good but i don't see it fit in any deckm besides eggs seems very suceptible to beaing destroyed (if they dont have deathrattle).One of the weirdest card to be sure.

    I would like to see those eggs as dormant when you play Nithogg to be hatch on next turn.

    It might be too op tho but would be a nice idea.

    I can see this being rated lower now but everyone hating it when it's in action like other we've seen. Works with the quest and provides some soft taunts since the drakes have rush they'll be useful if the eggs live.

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

    This card might work in Battlecry Shaman. On the other hand, sticking two (or four) eggs for one turn on the board is not easy. Maybe, this card is rather a 'win more' card.

    Yea I agree the card looks pretty weak. Even with a double battlecry youre not very excited about it.
