    On paper, the buff on The Lurker Below to 6/5 looks really good.

    The card will become a potentially good Tempo swing.

    HOWEVER, the Battlecry stays the same:

    1. How reliable and consistent is the Battlecry, given its condition, and the average board in Wild?
    2. Is turn-6 too late anyway, for that effect in Wild?
    3. Do you think it can fit Even Shaman?

    1. The Battlecry should be pretty reliable. Secret Mage, (Odd) DH and swarmy Decks like Even Shaman have a lot of 2 or 3 Health Minions. It might be a bit weak against Mech-Pally, if they're snowballing magnetic Stuff (and if they're smart enough to play around Positioning). 

    2. Turn 6 might be a bit too late against hyper aggressive Decks like Pirate-Warrior. But on the other Hand, Shaman has also some good early Game Removal and Healing.

    3. I don't think Even Shaman will run this Card. Like, why spend 6 Mana to (maybe) clear the Opponent's Board when you could just, you know, kill'em?

    I'm optimistic about this Buff. Excavated Evil is a good Card, and The Lurker Below does almost the exact same Thing AND gives you a 6/5 for only 1 Mana more. 

    Long, drawn-out Control Match-ups with Boardclears en masse and an unbelievable amount of greedy cards?

    It's great against Aggro, but 6 mana is pretty expensive agains those, like you mentioned. Once this card gets commonly used, people will play around it. In Wild there are better options for Even Shaman imo.
