    Nice callback, but a terrible card (except for Arena I guess).

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    2 for a 4/5 that you need sacrificial offerings... fun mechanic for DH

    1 Anima counts as 1 mana I assume?

    There is a world where this card is good. Shadow priest is already a good aggro archetype, and if you manage to swarm boards this card may get to a 4/5 by turn 3 perhaps. Even if it only gets there on turn 4, you can ping for 2 and play a 4/5 taunt

    Besides, even if all fails, you can play this on 2 for a 2/3 croc. For an aggro deck that's still not the end.

    Edit: Just discovered that this is in fact a neutral card. Well, that makes this card all the better because decks like aggro druid swarm boards anyway. While its fairly impossible to get a 4/5 on turn 2, its still possible by turn 3, and for that reason this card will likely see play.

    Infuse procts with each friendly minion death. So in essence, if this is in your hand while three friendlies dies, then this gets +2+2

    Looks ok - depends on how easy or fast you can infuse it.

    Piranhas would be OK, I guess. This would give you a cheap, biggish body on the board after all your fish have done what they do.

    In the end, it's just stats, though. I think every class has better 2-cost cards.

    EDIT: Now that I've seen more cards, I see more potential in this. I'm bumping it up to a solid 3 stars.

    Fairly sure a 2 mana 4/5 taunt is good. Even if you need to wait until turn 4 probably for enough minions to die to upgrade it.

    Classic card that just shows how the new mechanic works, just as always these cards hardly see play.

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    Very powerful if infused, but has vanilla stats if doesn't.

    It's better on turn 5-6

    Maybe Taunt Druid gets revived, but I wouldn't put my hopes on it. Can't see any other decks running this.

    For 2 mana, yes, but also, won't be played - most of the time - on turn 2, so it isn't as impactful.

    Just noticed similar comment from @SilverWolf, so I'll leave the nostalgic flavor text right here instead:

    Doesn't seem all that great, considering the Infuse cost. Don't see it being played all that often.
