    It's like a more restrictive Outcast effect. This isn't terrible at it's base form, and combined with Secret Passage and other cheap draws, I could see this being consistent enough to see play.

    Finally!

    A card that makes Secret Passage and Shadow Step good.

    It's a strictly better Gormok the Impaler -- easier trigger and a lesser effect if you can't trigger, AND it's not legendary.

    Gormok was pretty good in Zoolock back in the day, but that was Grand Tournament era, which was kind of a grindy meta IIRC.

    Overall, probably pretty good for Rogue now that Eviscerate is gone.

    Neat trigger. 

    4 mama 4/4 with deal 4 is strong. Just not sure how reliable that trigger is and dealing 2 might not be good enough. However it's nice that it can hit face if needed for reach.

    Edit: Wow I was reading this as "if you drew it this turn". That's not what it says. Shadowstep would activate this to deal 4. That makes it even better. I'm sure this will find a spot.

    good card even without the topdeck battlecry as a 4 mana 4/4 body + 2 damage can be really good in most situations

    Probably fine, but a little pricey for a card you expect to play after you play some kind of card draw.

    Hmmm, direct damage is always welcome in rogue, but this is a 4 drop..Will Rogue forgo Kazakus to run this?

    This looks promising, but we'll have to see what kind of support effects like this gets. Pretty neat idea though!

    At least shadowstep will still be in standard, this card has some potential.

    4 Mana 7/7

    "If this entered your hand this turn" is a new mechanic and means this can also be bounced and played for the 4 damage (not just drawn this turn). Could be alright, but we'll need to see if it gets any more support.

    A similar style of card like Keli'dan the Breaker, except damage not destroy.

    I assume this is the replacement for Eviscerate, although the condition is much harder to achieve.

    This isn't terrible, especially if it can be bounced and that counts as "enters your hand".

    Drawing  this in Rogue is way more consitant than other cards, since you can get this through Secret Passage for example. Still not completly sold on it.

    Hard to evaluate a card like this. Aggro would love a near top in burst like this, but it's cost and conditional means that it's not ideal in a lean aggro hand
