    This card will do better in aggro with Savage Roar as a board controller and finisher.  I think there will be better cards than this for non aggro decks.  This card reminds me of Wardruid Loti.  When Loti was revealed, it was thought to be a flexible swiss army knife that would go in any deck.  In reality it didn't find a home in that many decks.  I'm getting the same vibe here.  This seems like a bait card, but with interesting effects nonetheless.

    Loti saw plenty of play in Quest Druid. The only reason she didn't before was because there was just no deck that needed her (and she was a bitt too flexible...as in you only ever played her in specific scenarios)

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Both classes have access to plenty of good spells, both cheap and expensive, so you’ll probably never have a moment beyond the first few turns where you don’t have something to combo with this, and when you do it kills 2 minions most likely

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    Great Card, it’s definitely on my wishlist. Yes you need to combo with a spell, but it doesn’t even need to be THAT expansive for this minion to get great value.

    Any spell, even a 1-mana spell will make her very good. This will definitely be tried in spell Druids and Shamans since this card can just do that much.

    Speaker Gidra + Mark of the Wild = 5 mana 5/8 Taunt, Windfury, Rush.

    I want to see Mark of the Wild in the meta.

    Cute card that seems solid and Flexible. A nice removal tool for druid and this card can fit in different type of deck (in both heroes).

    Decent way to introduce fast answers to druid without breaking class identity completely while it can be sort of a payoff to the spell shaman archetype Team 5 seems to be pushing. 

    Pretty ok overall.

    Rating cards on coolness factor rather than predicting power because I like screwing up rating averages (and because I suck at predicting real power levels, but we'll ignore that LUL)

    Excited to see how big this card helps solidify the meta!

    Thanks to denial, I'm immortal.

    Seems really strong, but where would you play this in?

    This looks more powerful in Druid than in Shaman, as the more expensive Shaman spells in standard right now are symmetric board clears. Druid also has a weakness of lacking removal in general, so Speaker Gidra helps shore up that weakness. Probably only sees play in Quest Druid that may run a Malygos win condition to serve part of the role Wardruid Loti did before she was rotated. I imagine you don't run Gidra in Spell Druid as you only want to run essential minions in that deck for Fungal Fortunes.

    For glory, honor, and gold!

    Not sure about this one. It has rush and windfurry, but you need to pair it with a fairly big spell to really make it good.

    Powerful on 3 with a decent 4 cost follow up. Also better late game with some expensive spells.

    Good effects and nice cost for what it wants to do

    All hail the banshee queen.
