    Gonna be pretty hard to keep that alive for more than one turn, but hey, at least it's some sort of lategame value generator and the taunt gives it some immediate impact.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Seems really good, and it having 4 attack makes it hard to remove in mirror matchups. Also because of it being 4 health it means it wont be removed by your own "Destroy all minions with 5 or more attack" board clear.

    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.

    I'm glad to see more Dragon stuff coming out. I feared there wasn't going to be a new Dragon for a while after DoD.

    True, but still it's hard to remove if the opponent has not drawn it, or has already used them up.

    Love it, but will almost never see play. Too expensive.

    Has taunt though. But at that point of time, you're either winning hard, or already lost as priest.

    Probably not strong enough for constructed, but a great arena card.

    I really like the card, but you need to make it cheaper. Nightscale Matriarch didn't see that much of a play, because of the cost. I really don't want this one to follow the footsteps of the matriarch.

    You keep a dragon in your hand, which is the most important thing in dragon decks.

    It's a neat value generator, but I think that Priest gets enough random cards from Galakrond. Don't see it seeing much play outside of dedicated dragon decks, which I'm not sure will exist because they don't have a real win condition. Maybe Highlander Dragon Priest?

    Would say good ress target but it gives you random stuff that might or not be desirable for ressing.. I think the card has a decent power level, but I am not sure yet how priest wins.. value is not really a win condition most of the time..

    Decent stat for a taunt and this card generate value immediately, but i don't know if it's enough for standard. If Highlander prist will be a thing, this card can find a spot for sure in that deck

    Compare it to Emerald Explorer. One more mana for one extra health and the potential to get more than one free dragon, but you don't get to choose the dragon. Not a great bargain. Not terrible though.

    Yeah not as good as Emerald Explorer, but I still like it. I like Taunts and I like Dragons, so more of both is always welcomed.

    nice dragon generator on the turn of play but i can't recall dragon priest deck being good anymore so it seems a bit weak in the current meta.
