    Underwhelming legendary for class currently dominating on ladder, what a surprise. Eggs have only slim chance to been hatched, at least Blizz should gave Nithogg a taunt.

    At worst it's a 6 mana 5/5 Battleycry "Give Priority targets to your opponent", if the opponent clears the eggs, or silence them or even kill them it would have fullfilled it's role. 

    At best it's a 6 mana 13/13 and that's op af... but it has a costly requirement, so that's okish.

    I like the concept of the cards. I wonder if the eggs are deathrattles or activations, if the former then I don't think the eggs have deathrattle that will hatch the dragons out. Although it seems like a solid control-ish style card in general.

    This card has potential, I personally find the battlecry fairly decent. You can always play it if the board doesnt have too many or any minions at all, for some 4/4s. It will be an interesting card to try out, and see whether its strenght can keep up to validate it being in the deck.

    The stats aren't too bad and it has a dragon tag so thats woth something given the direction the x-pac is going.

    Also, it puts 2 3-health targets on the board that need to die, if you don't have aoe thats 2 attacks and it still leaves a 5/5 dragon on the board for a class that can benefit greatly from left over battlecry minions or decent evolve targets.

    Not a good card. If you can play this to a board where the eggs will actually hatch, you're clearly ahead. I'm assuming the eggs only summon drakes if they hatch on their own. If they summon them as a deathrattle, this would be great.

      Yeah, we need to see the egg cards. They might be, eg, “Die at the start of your turn. Deathrattle: Summon a 4/4 dragon with Rush.” In that case, this card would be worth a look

    I can only see this having a home in Quest Shaman. Besides that I don't think is such a bad card as everyone mentions. Even if the opponent kills the eggs is like when doomsayer absorbs 7 damage.

    I like the mechanic of this card, but it's too slow probably. In the game if u are ahead, this is a win more that ensure board presence; if you are behind enemy can destroy egg and deny the 4/4

    Pretty slow. It can be a 'win more' card, don't know what deck it will fit in though

    Its like 2 taunts. remove or suffer. eggs will hardly survive so it feels like it is a win/win win/more card. Absolutely gamebreaking if you have the board

    I like mechanics of this card, I would love to see it playing in some aggro decks, but I dont think so ;( On the arena is pretty cool, because those eggs basically have taunt - opponent does not want them to hatch

      I think they hatch regardless. so i dont think they will be soft taunts. Also, Im not even sure they will be interactable

    interesting card. gives enemies time to react if they have the right cards. might be too slow or super strong depending on the meta

    This isn’t super powerful by itself but it does create a pretty big threat in board. My only complaint is that those dragons that hatch take forever to attack the face.. First they’re eggs and then they hatch but still can’t attack face so you can’t really setup Vessina or Bloodlust with them, they’re for board control rather than aggro purpose I suppose. Not sure if they’d really be too OP if they had charge considering that there’s a fair amount of couterplay to this card.
