    The Curator was my first thought.

    I think this will definitely see play as a draw engine or a tutor for specific cards.

    His main qualification is that he'll work with anyone. Or anything... but not Murlocs or Beasts ...
    Pretty selective for a menagerie ...

    Oooo, I was to get theorycrafting with this card right away! With Boom Squad and N'Zoth, God of the Deep, super keen on what a warrior menagerie deck will look like

    Looks like Menagerie is going to be a thing - seems decent at the first glance - but i think we will have to wait and see more of the Menagerie Stuff.

    Personally I hate this because I got it as my free legendary and I don't play warrior especially not menagerie warrior. But I guess with the support it has this could be semi useful tutoring 

    Only a fool thinks they know everything. I admit that I know nothing

    The Curator for 2 mana less and drawing more relevant minion types for the class is great. Considering how we now have N'Zoth, God of the Deep and Circus Amalgam to help enable Whatley, I think this will definitely find a deck in Warrior. I've found room for Whatley in a N'Zoth Galakrond Warrior that I'm excited about.

    For glory, honor, and gold!

    Strong draw engine for Menagerie, or for tutored draws in a control warrior (Deathwing, Sword Eater, Dragonqueen Alex, Tomb Warder, Greenskin).  Good safe craft.

    If I open this guy up I'll definitely be trying him out - I love a good direction setting card, and Warrior certainly has those this expansion. Mostly I just want to know what we're calling it - I'm partial to Whatley Warrior for the alliteration, but Ringmaster Warrior is a tad more generic if they keep updating it. Feels different enough from Menagerie that it needs its own name.

    Reminds me of The Curator. This will definitely see play! Tutors three targeted cards and will be a centerpiece of Menagerie Warrior.

    Good draw card for warrior, just unsure on the pirate one

    All hail the banshee queen.

    You already run these types in Galakrond, so it's just a good tutor, if a little understatted.

    Draw Risky Skipper, Deathwing Mad Aspect, and... can't think of a Mech, but already that makes Whatley considerable for Control Warrior.

    So you run this + the weapon + N'Zoth? I don't know, the rush option seems much cooler and more fun.

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

    It's fine. Draws a lot of cards and has a body attached to it. Enables handbuffs with the baton, lets Tempo Menagerie Warrior play on tempo without worrying about running out of gas. My guess is this makes it into a lot of decks at first, then disappears about two weeks into the expansion.

    I have spoken.

    Decent stats and very nice draw, likely to make menagerie work

    Ok, question regarding Amalgams: does Whatley search first for minions that are just one type, then look for amalgams? Or does he just grab one of each, meaning you could draw fewer cards if, say for example, you only have one pirate in your deck and he draws an amalgam instead?

    Same question for N'Zoth, God of the Deep.

    I do believe that for all interactions in this game regarding those situations, it targets non amalgams first, than amalgams
