    I can see this card seeing play in token druid or buff paladin.

    Echoing Ooze was quite good, this repeats so the opponent has to deal with it.

    This feels like an Epic card to me, usually it has unique effect. Other than that, I really like it.

    Oh wow, that is actually pretty scary. If you get this on the board with a buff it doubles up and if your opponent can't kill both it's just gonna keep going.

    IMagine this with the Paladin Libram build. If you drop this in the lategame with a bunch of Wisdoms stacked on it it's gonna be pretty hard to stop (as long as you're not losing completely, which is what Libram of Justice is supposed to prevent)

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Oh. My..... This will be played a lot in handbuff decks. This is a scary card.

    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.

    A lot of classes got hand-buff tools this time around as well. I think this should be on the watch list.

    Might see play in Token Druid, but without the option to snowball this card seems rather weak.

    Oh I misread it I was sure it was cloning.. 

    It's still quite good though for a first expansion card..

    If it doesn't work like Echoing ooze - it's a bad card. But I keep reading the text and it says "Rot (not living rot) with stats equal to this one (the one that you can buff nicely on the turn you play it)" - so it kinda sounds exactly like an Echoing ooze. I am kinda confused here.

    If it is like Echoing ooze - those reprints T5, those reprints ....

    I think it works like Echoing Ooze, but it only mentions stats, not all buffs, meaning you can't copy Ancestral Spirit or Blessing of Wisdom that you have on that minion.

    Could be cool in some kind of wild Galvadon deck, but the fact that it only keeps stats and not divine shields, deathrattles etc. makes it considerably weaker.

    One day handbuff paladin may work. And then I really hope to see that little ooze in there.

    Similar to Echoing Ooze but i don't know how much it can work...Maybe only in a warlok with the dormant minion

    Any buffs and this could be super powerful, I like the potential this card has.

    Copies stats, not abilities, so this card is probably not great. Buff doubling has never seen extensive play in cards like echoing ooze or djinn, and using buffs on the turn a minion is played rather than the turn it can attack puts you up for getting two for one'd.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    Playable only in priest or paladin, also buff decks were never really a thing.
