    Interesting, but probably too expensive for aggro decks to make good use of. Maybe you can use this with lackeys or eggs, but I don't have much hope for this card.

    Strong card for Warlock decks but I don't see a place at all in Priest decks.

    A pretty good card for tempo decks, and another card that slots nicely into tempo deathrattle priest, which is a remarkably good deck.

    The combo potential of killing minions as soon as you play them is probably not anything that spiritsinger umbra can't do, but this definitely has potential.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    I would be very much surprised if this didn't push zoo warlock to tier 1 or making the infamous (but failed most of the time) zoo priest. works really good with deathrattles and even surprisingly good push into the late game. It would disappointing if this ends up being too slow but that wouldn't stop me from trying.

    also 10/10 performance Kibler!

    Oh boy! I card that can instantly kill my eggs and summon other minions in their place, as well as other deathrattle cards? I'm excited about this one.

    This is what reckless experimenter wanted to be. Eggs have always been good in zoo, but awkward to activate with basically only Recruiter being available.

    Pretty strong card, there are a lot of small minions in aggro decks that will like the upgrade to a 4/4. And this card alone is a decent tempo play. I wonder if the 4/4 statline is the now established standard, after Quest rogue and Pharaoh Tekhan, it seems like 4/4s tokens are what Blizzard settles as "good enough".

    I ADORE this card.  I pushes tempo/zoo style decks for Warlock and Priest by appealing to things that both benefit greatly from.  Eggs and other cheap deathrattles like EVIL Conscriptor are popped instantly and it essentially makes every minion you play a 4/4, letting it function as a pseudo-Tekahn for lackeys.  As it stands, the only major downside to the card is that it effectively does not allow you to play any Rush minions, removing some reactive tools typically in zoo decks and having anti-synergy with Magic Carpet.  That said, it does make that new broom card a bit more interesting.

    Interesting synergy with Wisp, Jar Dealer, Leper Gnome, Fiendish Servant, or as mentioned earlier, any Lackey.   And it's appropriately stat'd at 4-mana 3/6...this is good enough to simply play on curve without going off in one turn.

    Fun flavor! Synergy with deathrattles (eggs?!) and lackeys. Could see some interesting experimentation.

    Cool effect AND has a lot of potential. The stats are great, and the effect can be extremely good.

    Egg Priest? Sounds weird af, but it might happen.

    If zoolock aint tier 1 now, than i don't know anymore. Also this seems good for priest as well, might actually make zoo/tempo priest finally viable! The only "bad" thing is that you can only use it for a lot of value late game, but hey reloading the board isn't that bad of a thing, and these decks can now run a similar package as FACE Hunter, with Leper Gnomes and so on. I'm honestly scared of Zoolocks powerlevel this expansion. Let's hope this wont be DH-level nerfs part 2, Warlock edition.

    Also it looks like Dark Pharaoh Tekahn Might have been powercreeped (a little, Dark Pharaoh Tekahn will still be better in a lacky-based zoolock deck.)

    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.

    Am I the only one who thinks this whole Priest/Warlock dual class thing is decidedly Warlock favored? Not that I'm complaining, Priests can eat a dick anyways.

    So for Warlock this is almost like Dark Pharao Tekhan, except not a permanent effect. You throw this out, play your lackes and turn them into beefy boys. Obviously you use eggs as well, meaning there we now have a very decent sacrifice shell: this + Tekhan + lackey generators (cable Rat becomes a lot better with this in your deck). Possibly with a Discard package for draw (Or Galakrond, both work). Warlock is looking quite strong so far.

    Priest on the other hand I have no faith in unless they get some really efficient deck thinning. Right now tempo priest absolutely cannot work purely because if you run out of cards you're done for. No cycling. At best you can try and steal something from your opponent's deck.

    If Egg Priest were to work (it probably won't) it would need a solid shell (pun intended) first. Right now we have a disjointed mess. Priest doesn't generate that many lackeys and they don't really have a lot of small disposable minions.

    At best I could see this in some sort of  Galakrond Priest to turn crappy minions into slightly less crappy ones.

    I'm assuming we're gonna get some more support for this type of Priest, but it better be good or else they might as well have printed this as the solo Warlock legendary.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    A powerful legendary for both Warlock and Priest. 

    We've already seen Warlock have a good deathrattle this expansion with the Spider egg minion, this legendary is also telling us that priest will have deathrattles to play with as well (fitting, since it's in scholomance).

    because of this minion's cost you'll want to play him followed by at least 2-3 minions that you don't mind dying for some 4/4 - namely either lackeys or cheap death rattles or Reborn minions such as Leper Gnomes, Evil Conscriptors, Grandmummies, Fiendish Servants, Murmies,  even Reliquary or Souls or Ebonlocke would be good to play after this minion. 

    We still need to see what other deathrattles and maybe (?) reborn minions we get in this set

    However because of the cost you won't be able to run him in the most aggressive of decks, like Houndmaster Shaw (same cost 'n stat line) this minion will probably be more at home in a midrange list.

    Super interesting card! It's look stronger in warlock, but this card have a lot of potential. For sure can be used in some zoolock or in a tempo deck. Also the presence of lackeys and new card like the Egg can make this card so strong

    does priest even have use for this?

    this seems like a zoo card for me.. they are pushing zoo priest but is it good?

    Not sure this is as good in zoo as most are thinking.  Zoo wants to explode on the board.  4 mana for a 3/6 isn't that.  It only lets you explode onto the board if it sticks (wishful thinking) or you play it along side a couple one drops in the mid-late game but how do you have all those 1 drops in your hand still that late as zoo.  The only way I could see is if disco lock becomes a thing and you're proccing hand of guldans left and right, with the previously build spider card I guess this is possible but disco lock needs more support than that.  


    It's a solid card though.  you might play it just for the chance it sticks.  3/6 is very good stat line for a four drop.  MIght be playable but it just doesn't seem insane to me yet.  


    Priest probably isn't playing this.  it just doesn't have the cards that make sense with it like lock does.  tempo priest can already jam stupid ammounts of stats on the board in better ways.  and its still a bad archtype because no card draw.
