    The moment I saw it, I immediately thought of Plot Twist. This has direct synergy with the quest the same way Possibility Seeker synergized with the Timebound Giants. As for the empty-deck issue, I would play Augmented Elekk and reduce my expensive cards to 0. There might be a person who would think of a more elegant way to abuse those two spells, so I am eager to see what the busted combo would be.

    I think that this is probably very good. Kibler has been showing that Plot Twist is almost there as a deck, and this quest lets it extend it's late game. There are still early game issues to clean up, but in the end game, you can start dropping double bombs every turn.

    Dear god, this card seems bonkers. I'm assuming control Warlocks will either all revolve around this card or not exist at all because *insert Warlock healing weakness here LUL*

    Golden portraits' progress:
    (19/Apr/20) Demon Hunter - 1; Druid - 548; Hunter - 589; Mage - 401; Paladin - 518; Priest - 338; Rogue - 337; Shaman - 557; Warlock - 480; Warrior - 483

    The requirements for completion are far too steep.  Draw 20 cards so that the last 10 cards can cost 0?  I don't know about that.....

    From a Wild perspective, i am not sure it works.

    Sadly, because the flavor is absolutely masterpiece, considering also Plot Twist

    It feels like manipulating the power of storytelling...

    I hope more synergy can be provided.

    This seems strictly worse than Jungle Giants, and that card never really worked. You can't control which cards get the reduction, so this wont work with combos. Unless there's some insane support, I don't see this getting play

    Communism is just a red herring

    It's not even that good. Draw 20 cards so half the last 10 can cost 2. You have to hero power for the reduction, not just dra

    Idk, obviously you can complete it really quickly with Plot Twist and the fact that you no longer have to actually spend mana to get the quest reward is also helpful and means a mild effect like this is far easier to justify

    On the other hand it's basically a permanent Wilfred Fizzlebang who was never used despite not even being that bad and having a number of buildaround cards to make him somewhat work.

    At the end of the day you can't really target draw so the only deck which this would even matter in is one that contains cards worth reducing.

    Basically unless we get a card that works REALLY well with this entire concept Plot twist Warlock will just remain a meme

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Die 90% of the time before being able to pull it off.

    Yeah, no. 

    This might be decent in standard but wild won't give a damn unless some broken synergy or combo with it emerges.

    Warlock is going to need more than two plot twists and their hero power to make this work. If more hand shuffling shenanigans comes out then this might work. 

    Chaos, Panic, and Disorder, My work here is done. 

    Welcome to the thunder-dome bitch!

    Well, let's look at the bright side of this: the Quest does not really require you to warp your deck around it. Not heavily at least.

    So that ditching the Quest in mulligan will be perfectly ok, if you need Tempo plays.

    But the quest does next to nothing unless you build your deck around it. If you were to just put this in Zoo, you'd be discounting a handful of cheap minions in a stage of the game you never want to reach to begin with.

     

    This card demands to be played alongside Plot Twist, and then you might as well go all in on draw & shuffle shenanigans: Elekk, Morrigan, Betrug, Dollmaster, etc.

    I like that this card enable warlock memes a bit, shuffling portals into your deck and plot twist.. still really gimmicky and bad but it seems like a fun deck.

    probably won't see actual play at least for now but maybe if we get more card shuffling memes.

    it's good with rafaam for 0 mana legendaries.

    Ofc you would never play this in Zoo.

    But it's not hard to come up with a Midrange list that includes some key cards for the Quest, while being balanced on the Curve distribution.

    At that point, the deck is something that can apply early pressure to contrast Aggro, or go down with the Quest to close the game with big swings in lategame.

    Not saying it's gonna be good, especially in Wild (where Even Mechathun might still be better), but we can hope...

    This with plot twist seems really strong. Hope control Warlock will get back on its feet this expansion
