    Interesting card.. but won't see play cards that need to attack to do anything with such low hp as well just don't see play.

    good in arena for sure, in a scenario where there is only minion combat.

    It says "damages" not "attacks". And it's neutral transform effect.

    only if there is a card like The Beast Within for every minions, just like Single Combat in runeterra.

    Neutral Polymorph would be hilarious tho.

    Might be some part of Trolden videos with Duel! and Mass Hysteria.

    Well, after considering giving rush with Goblin Lackey is a thing, I can say that it can actually be good in lackey classes and also with Magic Carpet.

    Seems hilarious, I guess the best place for this is with classes that can give it rush, specially with the rush lackey.

    Well it needs to attack to target a minion you want to transform, an opponent won't trade into it.

    unless you can give it rush and then it's kind of a 2 for 1, and even then you still might need to deal with it on the opponent's side of the board so they don't ruin all your minions as well.

    It's like the 2/1 poisonous snake in rogue it's kind of easy to get rid of in constructed.

    Well, you have Rocket Augmerchant and lackeys. 2 mana, 2 cards, transforming annoying deathrattle minion in ressurect priest is worth it.

    Not bad if you give it Rush (Carpet anyone?).

    If there is a need for transform effects then I could definitely see this played with a support package. They payoff could be huge (although you have to kill the enemy Sporeling or else you get the clapback)

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Its basically an aggro deck counter to res priest. All you need to do is to give this minion rush and your res priest days are over. Just use a Magic Carpet, an already established good enough card for zoo type decks.

    Other than that, this minion gets obviously dangerous as the game progresses since even the biggest card just turns to a 1/2 minion if even so much touched by it. But the difficulties in giving this minion rush (and not saddle yourself with minions like Rocket Augmerchant) balances it out.

    Oh, and embiggen druid can barely interact with this thing without transforming one of its minions, so it counters that too. But obviously if we start seeing too many of this thing then 2 damage dealers will become meta very quickly.

    Kinda a meme, but i wrecks control decks. Image this against a ress priest that for some reason has no way to counter it. I like it.

    It wrecks nobody. Maybe slightly annoys res priest but not much more. I once played as a control shaman against a res priest. I transformed two of his minions into frogs, three minions into murlocs. He resurrected only his good minions anyway, mass res gave him 2\3 normal minions and only one frog. It's useless. Thank god they didn't print any new res cards for priest. Maybe this archetype will finally die.

    You can give 1x Zul'Drak Ritualist a try in your deck if you have a space for it! But it's pretty bad against every other decks though. It is very effective one against Resurrection Priest.

    And then next turn they destroy your carpet for "free" and then they AOE you and keep destroying you with the spore.

    You can't really buff this card either, if you buff it and transform enemies to this.. then they destroy your buffs as well.

    Its a tech card, albeit very clunky one that sometimes work. Transform effects should not be underestimated, and against res priest that is more so the case. I'm not saying this card is the greatest card in the world and we're going to see this everywhere, just stating some obvious use of the card. Its certainly unique in what it does.

    This card could revive Odd Rogue in Wild. Maybe.

    Kinda like Polymorph/Hex, but for every class and works against evasive minions - I like the idea. A niche tech card tho - if those pesky deathrattles get out of hand.

    a different take on poisonous effect..a 1 mana kind of sheep but keep in mind..once you turn your opponent's minion into one they can do the same to you..so double edged sword
