    Rogue is the class that "abuses" lackeys, and even though this card is slow, the value it generates continuously might just make up for it.

    Free cards? Free combos? Free ... amazing plays that force opponent to quickly concede. This is what we need. I love that.

    Galakrond cards are great and will have a deck maybe tier 2 on the meta, so it's a good card with a card draw mechanic.

    That zero cost cards looks terrifying. I can see right in front me - deck depleted with Myra's Unstable Element, then filled with Leeroy Jenkins by Togwaggle's Scheme and then this as a final nail in the coffin. I will hate this card from deep of my heart, I know this for sure.

    OOOOO a better sprint with a free weapon and a good hero power, sign me up please. This card can make a Galakrond miracle rogue deck viable

    Being able to add in 12 Mana into your hand is something, but I feel like players are just going to go for Galakron, the Apocalypse since I see the 5/2 Claw just being a nice feature when Rouge already has Mirage Blade. With that being said, Lackey Rouge, or the New Invoke Rouge is a very interesting feature.

    A powerful galakrond, but makes you wonder where he can fit to make full use of his battlecry

    You surely wont play this on decks with low cost cards (i.e miracle), but I am an inexperienced miracle player, so I cant say much there

    I personally might put it in some sort of steal rogue, just for the heck of it!

    Does galakrond even show up in arena though?

    My favorite galakrond. Insane value here, also the hero power is awesome for rogue, maybe you can get rid of cards like evil miscreant and evil cable rat.

    So combo is: Invoke 4 times and have scheme at 5

    Preparation + Myra's Unstable Element + Leeroy Jenkins + Toggwaggle's scheme

    Fully upgraded Galakround (5 damage with weapon) + Deadly poison (+2=7) + 4x 0 mana Leeroy Jenkins (+4*24) for a total of 31 damage, add an Eviscerate on top and you have even 35 damage through hero card armor

    With Kronx Dragonhoof you can even tutor Galakrond or if you fail to draw leeroy just have multitude of Kronxes

    Busted card if not for the fact that most miracle builds consists of very cheap cards. In fact, this is probably the reason why its effect is so overwhelming.

    Viable in almost any build of rogue, and with the hero power being as good as it is. Worth noting that with the hero power being generating lackeys, you can now go heavy into shuffling Heistbaron Togwaggle without worrying about the lackey requirement, giving lackey rogue the late game it needs against ultra control decks.

    And yeah, its free. Two thumbs up

    I think the most obvious Combo is Maly-Scheme-Galakrond.

    Insane, specially having Toggwagle there.

    This is insane. Lackeys have proven their worth, especially in Rogue decks. The combo potential here is through the roof. You can play Leeroy and Shadowstep him, then next turn play Leeroy for 3, prep Scheme, Galakrond and draw 4 free Leeroys. Also, stick a Spirit of the Shark the previous turn and it's 8 Leeroys. Hard to set all that up, but massive potential.

    Considering toggwaggles scheme and Myra's exist it's hard to imagine this doesn't enable a bonkers combo with maly or leeroy or something.

    Huge combo potential.  Pretty spooked

    Powercreep. Just compare this to Sprint. Ridiculously strong. Have to see the rest of the set, but overall, very scary and indicates an overall raise of power level in the expansion.

    Good for tempo and some shenanigans combo with shuffling cards into deck with banker.
