    Every single one of these "transform while in hand" cards has been bad.

    Shifter Zerus, Chameleos, Molten Blade, Shifting Scroll and none of them were ever any good. Could be a fun card, but the sheer amount of variance in this means it likely will not see any competitive play.

    Not very competitive, but fun! 

    Arch-Villain Rafaam on turn 5 lets go! 

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

    Wow. Shaman ends up way worse than the other classes so far. I'm no fan of the hunter cards either, but they are at least playable. This is terrible!

    Double the pride, double the fall.

    Bandersmosh Is certainly a fun card, but it’s random and needs to be in your hand at least one turn before it can be good. Too slow and unpredictable.

    Well, this is non-competitive for sure, but i dont think its unplayable. A fun card always find its place in my decks, so we will see. I know, im rank26 drewling noob, playing for the game itself not for laddering :)

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    Big shaman is the only one deck that can play this.

    Big Bad Voodoo and Ancestral Spirit shenanigans.

    1/5 too damn random, even if it's 5 mana legendary no matter what (which can also be not only 5 mana but changing mana cost as well it's not 100%) you might get some classic/situational/synergistic legendaries most of the time and be stuck with a dead card, plus it's bad when drawn a 5 mana vanilla 5/5 is not desirable...

    it's fun though Shaman is very strong atm so it's fine to give them bad cards.. just not freeze shaman level bad cards..

    Too unreliable, in many cases the legendary effect is wasted in your deck or the card is ruined with 5/5 stats. Only in few cases you can roll high. 3 stars

    Probably very inconsistent, at the same time you can highroll really nice. A lot of legendaries have <vanilla stats but good effects so you will hope to get one of them. Won't se constructed play except for memes.

    I think people are underrating this one. There's plenty of Legendaries in the game that benefit heavily from being "downsized". Imagine a turn 5 Tirion....or Onyxia or even just Gruul.

    On the other hand there's very few legendaries that aren't at least playable as 5-mana 5/5s. Wouldn't mind just throwing out a 5/5 Thalnos or even Nat Pagle.

    The only truly bad results would be stuff like Deathwing or Millhouse....in which case you just wait a turn.

    This fits the recurring Shaman thing of "pulling random stuff out of my ass to win me the game on the spot due to sheer RNG" (as previously seen in Evolve and Fleshshaper shenanigans)

    The main difference to Shifter Zerus is the mana cost. If draw this before turn 5 there's a good chance that it will transform into something useful by the time you can play it.

    I actually looked at all the available legendaries now and there's honestly not that many really bad outcomes. At worst you'd play this as just a blank 5/5 for tempo, which isn't the worst thing if the rest of your deck is solid...at best you can just win the game on the spot by cheating value.

    a list of all the  good outcomes  (in terms of cost efficiency and occasional upside depending on which deck you're playing):

    Lucentbark, Splintergraft, Cenarius, Houndmaster Shaw, Halazzi, Flark, Vereesa, King Krush, Emeriss, Arugal, Luna, Toki, Antonidas, Malacrass, Kalecgos, Kangor, Finley, Thekal, Glass Knight, Prince Liam, Tirion, Nozari, Shirvallah, Lazul, Amet, Lady in White, Bwonsamdi, Velen, Catrina Muerte, Princess Talanji, Van Cleef, Face Collector, Gral, Myra, Togwaggle, Electra, Zentimo, Vessina, Swamp qqueen Hagatha, Al'akir, Shudderwock, Jeklik, Tekhan, Dr. Morrigan, Glinda Crowskin, Rafaam, Godfrey, Betrug, Hir'eek, Jaraxxus, Voone, Darius Crowley, Armagedillo, Akali, Grom, Boom reaver, Thalnos, Nat Pagle, Brightwing, Zephrys (?), SnipSnap, Tinkmaster, Vargoth, Barista Lynchen, Greenskin, Dollmaster Dorian, Harrison Jones, Leeroy, Zilliax, Cairne, Hogger, Illidan, Mojomaster Zihi, The Black Knight, Azalina Soulthief, Baron Geddon, Ashmore,  HI Whiteman, Siamat, Gruul, Jepetto, Octosari, Alexstraza, Malygos, Onyxia, Ysera, Colossus of the mOon, King Phaoris.

    As far as value goes, the odds are in your favour, and every so often you might jusst get exactly what you need (Tekhan in Quest Shaman would be insane, Al'akir in aggro)

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    On the good side, when you top deck this late game, you can play it as a 5/5. I mean, it is not as bad as top decking any of the other "transform in hand" cards

    unplayble bad card, next. All shifting cards bad, i don't see why this is not.

    Also, bad flavor for being leg, art like it's epic max.

    Heavy RNG card  = Non-competitive card, not good at all in meta decks, but other than that, I love it. I like that RNG can lead to do cool and stupid things,, plus this card can access to a different class's powerful cards, the 5 mana cost makes it even better to gain late game power on turn 5, lucky if you can get above 6 or more.

    This card is definitely going to added in my fun-only deck combined with The Runespear till I faced tryhard players.

    Can be good, can be bad. Not bad stats but definetely letting this card sit on your hand until it is playable is not a good thing. Let's wait and see if it gets used.

    Forget the actual name.

    I'm always going to call this card "Crash Bandersmosh".

    No, that's wrong!

    Could be Shudderwock or could be Millhouse Manastorm. Could be Kalegos, or could be either deathwing. I get that you hang onto it until you get one you want, but just seems like it's not going to pay off in constructed.
