too bad Bloodsworn Mercenary still exist in standard.
Oh well, there's always next year.
Maybe blizz is hiding some ridiculously overpowered rush minion somewhere down the line, but even then Id rate bloodsworn merc higher than this.
I don’t see it being all too great. Usually combo cards need to be able to stand on their own to be worth running, and without a good rush minion in hand, this is basically worthless
Who needs consistency when you could have fun?
Some sort of wacky board clear, I guess. Or maybe they will give us some rush minions that has cool effects to combine with this one?

Potential to be a strong addition to the most recent Warrior lists. Good Stats and the ability is not bad.
Challenge me ... when you're ready to duel a god!
besides the obvious comparison to Bloodsworn I think this is just generally too situational.
You have to combo it with a rush minion, meaning it won't come online until 7-mana usually.
Granted, it's a better way to get more Kargaths but that's about it.
There's no way you can throw this out on 3 and expect it to live
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
As it stands there are only Restless Mummy and Kargath as good Rush minions if I recall. As such, I don't see this being especially helpful despite the value it can provide since Bloodsworn Mercenary is already run for similar purposes. That said, if a strong and cheap Rush minion is printed, then this card will almost definitely see play as well.
It reminds me of Spirit of the Rhino. So, not good.
Not great, even though the statline is fine for 3 mana.
Copying a rush minion is, at best, going be a one sided board clear for two cards and 7 - 8 mana. There isn`t a warrior deck that needs that kind of effect right now, but if there is, it would probably be the midrange pirate warrior with greenskin, where this is an okay anti-aggro tool.
This post is discussing the wild format.
Won't see play, just 100 dust right here.

it's quite insane with Restless Mummy, you get more procs of that strategy.. if this survives turn 3 the restless mummy is gonna destroy any early game board.
It's... fine, I guess? 4/3 for (3) is a strong statline, but the effect isn't easy to make work. Most games this'll manage to affect 1 Rush minion at best before being removed. Perhaps there's something I'm not seeing, but for me, this is one of the weaker cards revealed so far.
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.
Bloodsworn Mercenary is way to strong in the same 3 mana spot, also Playmaker require a rush minion. So I think until Bloodsworn Mercenary will left standard, Playmaker are going to struggle to find a spot in a deck
Well this card will get some boards cleared, that's for sure. Will be totally bonkers for Restless Mummy.

Probably not good enough for Standard, but an amazing Arena card.

This seems really good with the newly revealed legendary. It's unfortunate that Bloodsworn Mercenary is still in standard, but i feel like this new card might be better, if there will be even more good rush minions shown. Just a good card.
Good Stats for the cost and great effect, specially with things like Restless Mummy
I don't see this card being played. The benefit isn't worth the setup. Nobody wants to hold a rush minion in their hand any longer then they have to. And there aren't even that many good rush minions to play this with.
First rule of the English language: Their our know rules.
To be perfectly honest, I'm currently not sure what flavor this card is going for. I'll have to learn what a playmaker is. Effect is ok, I guess. Good for extra damage against high-level minions where you don't expect or intend for the rush minion to survive.

Nice effect! There is some very high potential value here, this could really shine in the right deck. Remains to be seen wether Warrior have enough rush minions to make use of this.
