    Amazing card. Makes Spymistress really dangerous.

    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.

    Look at those hands. What a great art !

    I really loved how artists handle with this expansion. Almost all cards have great arts.

    After I played a lot of Legends of Runeterra, I really hope that someday Blizzard adds viewable fullscreen arts in-game. Those arts desires more than little images.

    So if you run both Spymistress and Worgen Infiltrator you can almost guarantee to start with a 1-drop that value trades into just about anything on the next turn, so that's pretty rad.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Support for stealth rogue, and allows favorable trades. If theres any card that can tempt against playing galakrond rogue all the time, this will be it.

    Worgen Infiltrator and Spymistress are the ideal target, but this also allows cards like Akama Prime to trade into taunts without dying, which was a severe weakness of the card.

    Its only weakness is that it requires a stealth minion, and if there arent any enemy minions on board this one only gives 3 attack and your stealth minion will lose their stealth if they hit face. Its especially problematic with ping classes since ideally you want to curve with this card.

    Aggressive tempo card on top of a cool Stealth synergy.
    This may be what stealth minions needed all along ; a bit of support!

    Stealth Rogue get's a lot of support, and this battlecry is great if it finds a stealth minion on board. I'm still not convinced that this archetype will be competitive though.

    Will we see Stealth Rogue without counter to the stealth. Will we see Flare be auto include in every Hunter deck? And Blizzard in any Mage? They are pushing stealth and I really like it, but they have to give the other classes something against that - a tech card versus stealth.

    This card is a great follow up of Worgen Infiltrator and Spymistress. Guaranteed free trade and make board. Really strong

    Amazing tempo, especially since your opponent can't just remove your stealthed minion the turn before you play this. This card provides the tempo that secret rogue needs to be competitive.

    Turn 2, 6 damage to face with Spymistress. I'm glad they are pushing Stealth again. It's been a rarely touched mechanic for too long.

    T2 foolow up, huh. The curve is good, it just depend on how well will the meta be to stealth rogue.

    Crazy support for Stealth Rogue. Makes your little Worgen Infiltrators and Spymistresss much more viable later in the game.

    If you have the time, you should totally check out our weekly Hearthstone card design competitions! :D

    This is stronger than it looks, the additional attack and the immunity means Rogues will be trading favorably and develop the board better than their enemies

    Turns stealth minions into removal spells or just pushes face for 3. A guaranteed core card for stealth based decks, but these decks are lacking in actually good minons with stealth. As with a lot of these cards, if this is a yearlong mechanic, it will probably be good, but will otherwise struggle to be built around.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    I commented elsewhere that I don't see Stealth Rogue  being that strong, but I may be wrong. This does pair well with Spymistress as a bunch of folks mentioned above.

    I love the idea of rogues actually stealthing.

    This will help fix one of Stealth minions biggest weaknesses, they have low health. Giving them immune will help keep your board alive after the smoke has cleared. This card will surely play a big part in making stealth rogue viable.

    This may also be enough to make Worgen Infiltrator viable . . .
