    I mean...it's not terrible, but it's also not great.

    What kind of deck does this go into? Way too slow for tokens, no point in Embiggen (unless you really want non-minion token to fill out your early curve without having to worry about drawing poop later)

    It's okay, but i fail to see it in any current deck.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    quest druid likes to draw and it's a 3/2 draw a card for the deck.. twice!.. so it's really good

    Using it for card draw is comparable to Branching Paths: 2 for (4).

    But this new card doesn't have the same versatility as Path, which is the real strength of the card.

    A 3/2 Beast with no keywords is just not enough to account for versatility.

    I can definitely see this in some sort of Quest - Combo Druid.  I'm sure other combo decks wished their Novice Engineers were 2 mana 3/2's...and could play 4 of them.

    See you in the next dimension...

    Don't forget about our buddy Keeper Stalladris when evaluating choose one cards. This one seems a bit slow/overpriced as a cantrip but the 3/2 body could work in token/buff druid. It is potentially a ton of value combined into one card.

    Quest Druid has already seen a bit of a resurgence. This may bring it back in full force!

    This is just a solid card that will probably be a role player for a number of sets. I think you can justify it outside of Quest Druid as well.

    Both aspects of the card are things you want against different match ups.

    This is like Power of the Wild, but with twinspell and card draw instead of +1/+1 for all, and I think that is worse. Quest Druid is not a token deck, even with the potentially awesome power of Cenarius, and the current slower variant doesn't need a measly 3/2. It also already has card draw with Nourish. So I doubt this will see play.

    Put your faith in the Light!

    Do you know what decks that like card draw like? More card draw.

    Power of the Wild's Panther isn't a good early Game play because you really want that buff. This Card kind of helps with this weakness. Also, I think it's its versatility that'll cary the Card, just like Branching Paths

    Great versatility with a different utility than Power of the Wild. Cool that this exists.

    I like it. The versatility it provides can be used in a variety of decks (that may or may not be competitive tho).

    The card draw looks relatively nice, and while you probably won’t choose the minion too often, it’s decent on curve

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    Maybe one copy into embiggen druid, for the draw. It stills draw 2 for 1 card. For a deck with very few draw cards, its not that bad.

    Rememebr when Ancient of Lore was nerfed because drawing cards is not Druid's thing?

    I don't know what to think of this one. I haven't played enough druid recently to know if this card fills any needs in the current decks.

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

    Definitely could see this used in a Quest/Maly deck: during the Quest phase you can use it to hold off early aggro, and once the Quest is complete it is 3/2 Novice Engineer that generates another, putting stuff on the board and gathering combo pieces. Seems useful.
