    I found the original one pretty neat, let’s see how this goes...

    To quote the legendary Riosix:

    It's a treasure hunt using your Hearthstone card collection. I'll start it off with a riddle, and you try to figure out what card I'm talking about. First one to answer correctly picks a new card and makes the next riddle. Make it as difficult as you want, just not impossible :)

    I’ll start with:

    Alone I’m quite fearsome,

    you better watch out,

    but doubled I’m more than tripled,

    and my gurgle - a mighty shout.

    Hey, did you notice how all 5 original Lackeys correspond to the EVIL members? Kobold Lackey (Togwaggle), Goblin Lackey (Dr Boom), Witchy Lackey (Hagatha), Ethereal Lackey (Rafaam), Faceless Lackey... Lazul?! LAZUL IS A FACELESS CONFIRMED

    "Alone I'm quite fearsome" - a highlander card

    "but doubled I'm more than tripled" - the card summons another minion. If you get to duplicate it (in hand), you end up with 4 minions, which is more than 3x the original one

    "a mighty shout" - a battlecry minion

    I say Dinotamer Brann.

    Really nice poem, well done!

    Double the pride, double the fall.

    Good guess, but nope. And thanks!

    Alone I’m quite fearsome, // i guess i want to kill it

    you better watch out, // no new information

    but doubled I’m more than tripled, // buffing other friendly minions

    and my gurgle - a mighty shout. // mrglglglgl

    Is it pre-nerf Murloc Warleader?

    I do what I must, when I must. Know this well.

    Nice try, but also wrong. Any other guessers?

    Since it’s proving hard, I’ll give a tiny hint: the gurgle becomes a mighty shout when doubled as well

    Is it Blood of The Ancient One?

    Alone I’m quite fearsome, (a 9/9 is pretty big)

    you better watch out, (You want to keep on eye on this minion so it doesn't turn into a 30/30)

    but doubled I’m more than tripled, (When you triple a 9/9 the total stats are 27/27, and when you double the Blood of The Ancient One you get a 30/30)

    and my gurgle - a mighty shout. (I would say the battlecry is pretty mighty)

    You got it! The last line was a reference to how the Blood’s entrance quote is an unintelligible gurgle, but when doubled it becomes the Ancient One, whose entrance quote is a shout and a half (THE DOOM OF WORLDS AWAKENS ONCE MORE!)

    You’re up, @KANSAS!

    I am just going to copy the lyrics from this song with a couple of the words changed.

    Early in the morning sunlight

    Soaring on the wings of dawn

    Here I'll live and die with my wings in the sky

    And I won't come down no more

    Higher than the dinosaurs I'm flying

    Crimson skies of ice and fire

    Borne on wings of steel, I have so much to feel

    And I won't come down no more

    So high, so high

    Without my wings

    You know, I'd surely die

    I found my freedom flying high

    I've climbed the mountains of the sky

    Floating on the clouds of amber

    Searching for the rainbow's end

    The jungle so far below me, I'm here alone

    And I won't come down no more

    Not all of the lines are important, so I wouldn't focus too much one each individual line, but there are a couple of key words in there.

    No, but not a bad guess.

    If I need to I can add a hint, maybe just putting song lyrics wasn't as cool an idea as I thought it would be.

    Lots of hints pointing to Ungoro there... and obviously something flying. First thought about Fire Plume Phoenix, but I go for Pyros because of "Here I'll live and die..." - no other deathrattle cards with flying creatures from Ungoro coming to mind.

    Is it Pyros?

    Double the pride, double the fall.

    Thanks! This is my first try, let me know if it ends up too difficult. I liked the idea of using lyrics, so I'll pick that up with Linkin Parks "In the end".

    It starts with
    One thing the buffs are why
    It doesn't even matter how hard you try
    Keep that in mind I designed this rhyme
    To explain in due time

    All I know
    Draw is a valuable thing
    Watch cards fly by as the pendulum swings
    Shuffle them back till it's time to play
    The clock ticks life away

    It's so unreal
    You didn't look out below
    Watch the stats go right out the window
    Trying to hold on, but didn't even know
    Or wasted it all just to watch me go

    I kept everything in hand
    And even though you tried, it all fell apart
    What it meant to me will eventually be
    A memory of a time when

    You tried so hard and got so far
    But in the end my minions got ever better
    You had to fall to lose it all
    But in the end my minions got ever better

    One thing, the buffs are why
    It doesn't even matter how hard you try
    Keep that in mind I designed this rhyme
    To remind myself how

    You tried so hard
    In spite of the way you were mocking me
    Acting like I was part of your property
    Remembering all the times you fought with me
    I'm surprised

    It got so far
    Stats aren't the way they were before
    You wouldn't even recognize me anymore
    Not that you knew me back then
    But it all comes back to me in the end

    I kept all the cards in hand
    And even though you tried, it all fell apart
    What it meant to me will eventually be
    A memory of a time when

    You tried so hard and got so far
    But in the end my minions got ever better
    You had to fall to lose it all
    But in the end my minions got ever better

    Double the pride, double the fall.

    Pogo-Hopper?

    There is a lot of referencing to shuffling and getting bigger stats, so Jade Idol does make sense. But if it isn't that then Pogo-Hopper seems like the next card to pick.

    You've got it right! The "buff" was a reference to the cost reduction from 2 to 1 mana. Looking forward to your next riddle

    Keeping with the current trend, I will do another song (Tubthumping), I did take out some of the lyrics. I don't think this one will be too hard.

    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
     
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
     
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
     
    I get knocked down,
    but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
     
    I get knocked down,
    but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down

    Edit: Oh wait, there is also Astral Tiger, Immortal Prelate and Anub'arak. But can't say which one tho.

    Could be any number of annoying Priest cards, but I’m going to try the most obvious one first: Dreadsteed?

    Hey, did you notice how all 5 original Lackeys correspond to the EVIL members? Kobold Lackey (Togwaggle), Goblin Lackey (Dr Boom), Witchy Lackey (Hagatha), Ethereal Lackey (Rafaam), Faceless Lackey... Lazul?! LAZUL IS A FACELESS CONFIRMED
