    Deathrattle Rogue back on the menu? This is just a very strong card.

     

    Hell, it's an argument for running Quest Paladin again, especially with Vectus around

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Deathrattle Rogue was my first thought, too

    Vectus is an obvious sinergy, but fits in a Big deck too.

    Duel! pally can get a huge swing with that.

    By The Holy Light!

    For a card that will probably see no play (AKA pack filler/arena card) it's quite interesting and has actual applications.

    Payoff for big decks or deathrattle rogue, but I don't think it will see too much play since it lacks immediate board impact.

    Big decks already have so many payoffs that this one just looks mediocre.

    The lack of immediate impact really hurts this one.

    I doubt that this will see play in a world where decks could be summoning Y'shaarj or Colossus instead.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

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

    Big Paly finally a thing with this and Commencement? I think so! This is especially threatening getting pulled off of Commencement and is a sticky minion that most of the time kills something when pulled off of Duel!. I think with Sphere of Sapience and a possible Kael'thas Sunstrider package, Duel Paladin will get there finally!

    For glory, honor, and gold!

    There has to be a way in wild where this card goes from an 8 drop on the board then to 7 and a 6 all the way down to 0 right!?

    I am actually really happy that this card exists. He is just a good card to cheat out. Whether you are playing big shaman, duel paladin, recruit warrior, or deathrattle rogue you would be happy to play this sick dragon. And it is a common when usually the ideal targets for this "cheat" effects are legendary, so that's nice.

    It's slow to have the Deathrattle occur naturally, although it's really good to cheat out, and it's good for Deathrattle activators where you can quickly get a bunch of 7-Cost minions on the board.

    I remember that Anubisath Warbringer just played because it was good when it was drawn by Necrium Apothecary. I feel this might follow a similar fate.

    I think this will be played in most deck with big minions like druid and maybe in dragon priest if it ends up being a thing.

    Very strong and sticky. Too bad its slow as hell.

    Unless cheated out, this is useless.

    Very nice card - could work in different settings: Deathrattle Decks like Rogue, Duel Paladin, Big Druid etc.

    Dang, really strong card! I've said elsewhere that just dropping a big minion isn't as powerful as it used to be, but a big minion that drops another can be much better.

    Too slow for normal play, it has to be cheated to make an impact. Only dedicated deathrattle deck would play this.

    Good for big decks like Strength in Numbers druid, recruit warrior and maybe Duel! paladin? Also this cards existance is just good, because you can pull this from random discovers and from Dragonqueen Alexstrasza

    Deathrattle shenanigans for a lot of classes. And 7-drops are nice (most of them have high stats too). 

    I hope Arena matches won't get decided by how many of those everyone has in their decks.

    The main problem of this card is the 7 drop from the deathrantlle, because a lot of 7 mana have strong effect with weak body. Anyway rouge can manipulate this deathrantlle...but i'm asking myself why we need to play this card instead Cursed Vagrant for exemple
