    I really like the way they executed this ability. Most cards like this are terrible value when you play them, and are only playable when you discard them. This card seems to be on a good middle-ground. You could reasonably play this in an egg warlock, but it is also, obviously, good in a discard warlock. 5/5 stars.

    I really like the flexibility of this card. A discard mechanism that still has use if you need to play it normally.

    Unfortunately, common sense isn't as common as it should be.

    Really like this card seems really good on power level if you discard it you get a bonus but it's not a 3/3 it's good enough to play for 2 as well (There's still some sacrificial  tools in zoo.

    I'll use it in my Wild Discolock and you can't stop me.

    In Standard I feel like it'll only be used as more self destruct fodder (although we don't have a ton of support for it as of now).

    All the Discard support we have right now are the ones that discard the highest cost card (which this most likely will never be, so no point there).

    Would have been sick with the Rastakhan's rumble stuff, but I guess that wasn't meant to be.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Just meh really.

    The discard synergy really isn't that good, considering that the more powerful Hand of Gul'dan is probably the preferred target for discards.

    Even the deathrattle isn't that good neither, the 2/1 being susceptible to a hp ping, so Serpent Egg is still the better egg choice at the end.

    There's a lot of things to consider when looking at this card: 

    First: The deathrattle can be activated by either traditional means OR by discard. which means that if you get lucky with a Soulfire spell, you can get 2 2/1's for the price of 1 mana that removes a minion. You can also use this card with say Felfire bolt for the same effect, but that's 3 mana and really at that much you can just use shadowbolt (which doesn't see much play these days). But since this card HAS a death rattle I'm certain this reveal is a precursor to a future Warlock spell that requires you to kill off a friendly minion for it to activate (like Grim Rally or Unholy Sacrifice). 

    I also wouldn't be surprised if a Priest/Warlock spell will be the one that activates this card on your turn, since both classes have had an affinity for triggering deathrattles.  

    Secondly: Discard - this is going to seem incredibly appealing to everyone, but bear in mind Warlock's strongest (i.e. most used) discard minions say "Discard the HIGHEST cost card in your hand" and play them with Hand of Gul'dan. That's not saying you can't sculpt your hand to have this as your highest cost card but I feel if you were to mulligan for a card to discard it wouldn't be this. 

    Third: The zoo. People are going to say this is a great zoo card and I agree, in no large part because Imprisoned Scrap Imp will be in standard until the end of next year. a 2 mana 3/3 with a death rattle to summon 2 2/1's is pretty strong. There's options to use this with Teron Gorefiend as well to activate it and then summon it again at a later time. 

     

    TL;DR it's really strong for aggressive and mid-range decks.

    It wouldn't be a HS expansion if zoo warlock doesn't get something.

    I don't know about discarding it tho. Since many of the standard "discard stuff" cards target your highest cost card. But you can just pay 2 mana and play it on the board yourself.

    Discard warlock gets another discard target, and this one is pretty good.

    The only real downside is that the card is not great if played from hand instead of discarded, but hand of gul'dan has that problem and is one of the best cards in the deck. Looking forward to using this.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    The down-vote is an 'I disagree' button, not an insult.

    This has potential.  Discard aggro in wild is pretty strong.  Not sure if this gets played there.  Maybe this is better than the 3/3 but i'm not sure.  If we get some good aggressive disco cards in standard i'd love to see that be a deck.  

     

    it's going to be in standard with the rushing 5/5 and hand of guldan, which, especially hand of guldan, is the card that makes disco lock viable.

    That is some nasty looking egg! The discard synergy is cool, tho i dont like discard decks myself. Zoo will like this a lot tho.

    This card definitely has potential, but I don't think it reaches it knowing what we know so far.  Serpent Egg give a better stat spread on hatching and there arent actually that many cards that will hit this from discard since many of the run effects target the most expensive card, which will almost never be this.  Warlock also doesn't currently have much in the way of making use of more bodies since Grim Rally rotated, but I remain optimistic in the Warlock reveals to come.

    I like this card for pushing Discardlock, an archetype I always want to see more of. If you can discard it early enough, it'll be a solid 2-drop. However, the longer the game goes on, the less value this card has. The value of this card really depends on whether or not we see more support for Discard mechanics.

    Started playing HS in May, 2015. The bad news: I missed the excitement of 'Naxx out?' and GvG. The good news: I never met an Undertaker.

    You can really see what an impact discolock finally has in wild when after making "draw 3 cards" (~4.5 mana) in the previous expansion, they make "summon two 2/1" (~1.5 mana).
