    I. Dig. It.

    Okay so not only is the art absolutely incredible, but we've got some awesome Warlock flavor with their large hand sizes. I'm a sucker for RNG but RNG that actually gives off some nice buffs, and with a low cost? Sign me up!

    Can't wait to see lots of little demons flooding the board with midrange stats later in the game.

    Renounce your Hand

    Might honestly not even be that bad. There's enough small demons that playing this early on won't be terrible. The only problem is getting a big enough hand to use it.

     

    Either way, please show the non-meme Warlock cards now please

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    I guess it gives you an option at the end of games to turn your useless stuff into less useless stuff.
    But, generally, these types cards have not been very good. Although, this is one of the better versions of those cards.

    Too much RNG, I guess?

    Yeah, but there is more to it i think... To me i looks like a wasted card for warlock player. I know the fun aspect and all...

    Honestly, thinking about it more it might actually have some legitimate play value.

     

    Think of this, you're now playing Handlock, which is probably going to be a more control oriented deck seeing how Mountain Giant is gone. Now in Handlock you'll quite often be in situations where you end up pllaying it slow and just responding to stuff while most of your hand ends up useless because you can't really use it.

    Now think if you just used Dark Skies to clear the board and don't have anything substantial to follow up. If you just play this you replace your awkward hand with a bunch of Embiggened Demons at least some of which should be playable immediately. And it also gives you fuel for future terms without harming your actual deck (like Rafaam does).

    Maybe it's a bit of a stretch, but we also thought Warlock Galakrond would be bad because "4 random demons, lol bad" and it turned out it was actually pretty decent, so maybe this isn't terrible either.

    Random Demons
    Hit or miss
    +2/+2 
    Good Value

    Yeah... 

     

    ... Or maybe you just keep your good Cards and make use of them later.

    This is just a meme card. Random demons are bad on average, and the +2/+2 doesn't compensate for the randomness.

    At least, we can't open more than two copies of this card due to duplicate protection.

    This might be a sleeper card, creating a whole new archetype for Warlock. The Demons revealed so far seem to be on the stronger side!

    I'm cautiously optimistic about this one. If nothing else it's high-grade memes

    I'm going to make a Wild deck that fills the hand with random crap and then turns it into buffed demons.

     

    It's going to be awful.

    Seems like a meme card, but i feel like this is a card that we shouldn't underestimate. Might be really good because of all the demons getting added this expansion.

    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.

    random demons are very RNG but +2/2 is very attractive regardless of what kind of weak or random demon you get. not a bad starting card if you have a horrible high cost hand or a late game with dead cards in hand.

    I think this card is broken. Sure, it's Rng...but if you use this and the warlock dormant minion you will find a hand with +4/+4 and in that case Everything is good enough. 5 star for me
