    Seems like a pretty fun and interesting card to play, but not really viable in any deck due to the inconsistency again. You can also get unlucky with the discover pool and you would loss value from any battlecry dragon you discover

    Way too expensive to be useful, although like the idea.

    Like ya'll said: Other than Warlock immediately killing this -- too expensive.

    How does this work with double battlecry? does it hatch into two dragons or does the hachee change after the second discover?

    Too expensive and dragons usually have battlecry effect.. I don't see it as a good card

    maaaay be a good early tool for revive priests? You can drop it early, pop it with some AoE and then revive it or the dragon that it pops late in the game.

    5 mana for an slow RNG card can be too much. I think it will not see play

    Proabably too expensive for an egg, and can backfire really hard. Also bad to summon.

    I'm a bit spooked of this card.  There are plenty of good dragons with sufficient deathrattle support

    i expect this to be too slow to be of any use. no dragon tag and 5 mana do nothing is not good really. i don't see it working

    Usually you dont want to build your deck around such a random effect, fun card for sure but you actually want a dragon in your hand to trigger effects

    Love the effect and flavor.

    Granted, its not a good card. 5 mana, do nothing is never good, the only scenario I can see one wasting mana on this is when they have the board advantage. I am biased to give it 3 stars, but I dont think it will see play, unfortunately.

    Its great for some highlights of deathwings or smth coming out of it on an accidental removal lol

    I could see this with Deathrattle Rogue with the deathrattle activating cards in standard and Wild.

    Nerf to evolve mechanics in wild.  Other than that, I'm initially not as excited about this as I'd like to be, at least until we see what the pool of dragons looks like after this set is released.

    I'm going to try this in wild with some clunky feign death hunter for sure. But it is pretty weak and slow as it is.

    My inclination is that this is bad because for 5 mana you really need 8+ mana popping out of this thing and without the mech tag magnetic effects are not an option for activators.  On the other hand, egg cards are one carnivorous cube type card away from being good at any point in time, so I can't rule it out yet.

    Too expansive to see play in any serious deck.
