    Worst case isn’t too terrible compared to some potential best cases. This will likely be played.

    I feel like most of the people in this thread don't even understand this card. A few do, but most people seem to think its some weird combo card. That card is purely a tempo card with a bit of upside. It say you chose an enemy minion and then the deathrattle summons you a copy of it. That's it. Its 3 mana 3/3, Deathrattle: Summon a copy of your opponents best minion. That's a perfectly good card, in fact its really good tempo, against aggro or control its got options. This card is just really really good and everyone is trying to figure out how its broken or compares to a bunch of cards it has nothing to do with. Get it together guys. I know the contest is here and everyone wants an entry, but at least read the card and understand what the words say and do before you make a post....

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

    You can drop this besides a removal for a big minion. Seems solid in control priest.

    Cheap Legendary tends to see play, unless they are too niche or deck-restrictive like Commander Rhyssa.
    This one's effect is generic enough to be useful in various archetype
    Also, cannot wait to see the golden animation for that one

    Meta dependent for sure.  If Aggro dominates, this card will do nothing to stop it. Sure, it will have 6/6 in stats (on average in the early game), but against a wide board, this doesn’t accomplish much.

    Now if the meta shifts to more dragon/control based decks, I think this card is going to be crazy good

    I was a bit confused of the card description at first because "summon a copy" usually summons a creature on the same side of the board as the original one. So the card lets to choose an enemy minion and resummons it with no buffs for the Mindflayer Kaahrj's owner with it's deathrattle, right?

    If Mindflayer Kaahrj work this way it's a very strong card even with no any effects it's a 3-3 for 3 mana which is decent. It may be good against aggro because it lets you trade an enemy's board and have a sticky minion. Or it may be a high value card in late game cuz not every single deck plays silence. I hope we'll see Mindflayer Kaahrj on ladder, the card seems interesting and promising.

    It's basically a steal card; select an enemy minion, kill it, this minion dies and now the enemy minion is in your battlefield. The wording says copy so I'm wondering if it also copies buffs.

     

    Well it's over

    Interesting effect but Way too slow. These type of legendaries are fun but usually see little play. 

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    I believe "a new copy" means summoning a new full health minion with no buffs

    Not a bad card, but probably shouldn't be a legendary. I believe that this should be an epic card at most. Gives good value but being a deathrattle it could be silenced by your opponent.

    I love this nods to both WoW and previous Expansions, would als be a nice theme to be informed about in a post here. There are probably more minions with conections to the Dalaran heist or the Tombs of Terror. 

    Help me get counseling for my suicidal starving hyenas.

    I'm sorry, I've got to ask a really stupid question. I enjoy playing Kovachuts Thief Priest in Wild. Now let's say my opponent has The Lich King on board and I play Mindflayer Kaahrj on him, then proceed to destroy kaahrj with Wretched Reclaimer. I will end up with my own lich king and a second kaahrj.

    The question is: will the second kaahrjs deathrattle summon another lich king for me? Same goes for summoning kaahrj through Twilight's Call (or Cube or Embalming Ritual). Would its deathrattle do something? If I understand your comments correctly, that should not work which is really a shame.

    Double the pride, double the fall.

    I would say it's OK, but compared to the rest of the set is underwhelming. I hope I don't get this in my packs

    Slow. But potentially very poweful effect and combo potential. Nice flavor and art also, opposed to all those big-ass overpowered dragons of this set.

    Interesting minion. He can generate some value, but i think we must see this card as "piece of combo". We must see all set before we can leave a correct analysis

    A 3 mana delayed Faceless Manipulator, but the downside of being able to use it only on your opponent minions seems pretty big.

    This seems like such a strong effect. Particularly paired with Shadow Word: Pain in the late game.

    Does "a copy" mean that it keeps buffs? I'm really trying to figure out when you would want this card over faceless manipulator. Maybe it is best as an earlier Mechanical Shredder type of minion with a nonrandom deathrattle.

    Unfortunately, common sense isn't as common as it should be.

    No, the second Kaahrj will not give you anything

    This cards a a good tempo tool but again in a world with tempo Priest not being on the radar is hard to belive this will see any kind of play. We'll just have to wait and see

    Some rule changes in future patches might change this card's effect because of the "new" word in the text.

    Just saying.

    This card does nothing the turn you play it, and nothing when it hatches (Unless you ate a chrge or rush minion). I'm surprised by the high scores given to this. Am I missing something?

    This card is so fun, so many combos will be made. Cube cards are always fun!
