Whenever this minion takes damage, summon a 2/1 Whelp.
Think of them as bullets for your dragon gun.
I'm not sure why you're even bothering to defend Dragon Egg, but if you made a prediction and you were wrong... well, you were wrong. That's all there is to it. People always get so excited for every new released card even when it's absolutely terrible to begin. They like to play off the positive aspects of the card, ignore the negative and pretend it will see play. It happens every expansion. I guess people like to always be optimistic or something.
The people on this site like to downvote the realists that tell them the card is really bad (even AFTER the card has seen play and has been tested multiple times) and upvote the guys that just blindly say that every card is good. Pit Lord, Kidnapper, Siltfin Spiritwalker, etc. Even after 2 years since the game has been released, there are still some people who swear that Kidnapper still has 'potential'. I just found all of this to be hilarious.
I know this isn't the page for it, but take a look at Demonfuse or Flame Lance. There are a ton of people who believe that these card will be good somehow. It happens every expansion. I've already stated my opinion on those cards (they're trash tier) and many other TGT cards. So yes, you can call me a prophet and a genius if I judged those cards correctly and call me out if I am wrong. I'll do the same. Thanks. :)
Yeah, you're a prophet for saying a card is objectively bad 4 months after release. Ignore the negative? You're ignoring your own negatives (namely being a douche *I mean prophet*). Just because the card doesn't see much play doesn't make the reasoning invalid. I'm just puzzled on why some people are continuing a 4 month thread that has no relevance since the card was released 4 months ago.
Warrior cancer detected.
Rampage'd eggs :o
Great for zoo and shaman, somewhat great for a warrior enrage deck, if thats even practical
I still think Nerubian Egg is a better drop with a far better outcome. It might work with decks that need a dragon minion on the battlefield to trigger dragon-keyword effects.
One can cast taunt on the dragon egg so that you can get a whelp (via spare parts, def of argus), can combo on a warrior deck with all the 1 damage cards, or with preist deck with all of the +health spells.
on the defensive side, it can really annoy the mech mage users.
Ultimately I don't think this will be played much beyond initial release. One major problem is a 2/1 can easily be removed, even by 1/3 of hero powers ( and by a silver hand recruit). Illidin Has the same problem with his flames which are also 2/1.
This card is seems insane in aggro paladin deck, which most of you known as Shockadin, or Put your faith in the shock. Because of Sword of Justice synergy. Not only this, Abusive Sergeant and Blessing of Might can activate it. I'm gonna start experimenting it, the day it is released :D
its good - if you have activator
I don't see the advantage of playing this in a mage deck. Sure, you can ping it with your hero ability, but it would cost 5 mana to get 2 2/1 minions. I see this as a good response to a mech mage's goblin blastmage.
this card should be 0/3, have taunt, or cost 0 to see play....maybe im wrong but i dont think it worth a spot
Imagine you are playing against a deck with zero buffs or something and you give the enemy this out of Hungry Dragon.
Like "Here..yeah,enjoy your freakin 0/1 that doesnt do shit."
More eggs for breakfast
This card is pretty annoying , you can't clear it that easy
and it really good synergises with zoolock (Defender of Argus , Dire Wolf Alpha , Shattered Sun Claric,Abusive Seargent , Power Overwhelming ) And Shaman (Rockbiter Weapon , Flametongue Totem ,Defender of Argus ,Bloodlost :D ,...)
All in all , its a pretty good card :)
This card will just work well in any zoo/aggro decks, even if they get hit only once the'll do their work.
Great card, not only for agro. Power Word: Shield Velen's Chosen
No, Leeroy, don't do that !
you can play this with pally to with secrets / buffs
Obviously looks like a card for either Mage or Warrior cause they can easily active it, but I'm leaning towards mage a bit more cause in warrior you have to be careful with Whirlwind and Death's Bite. However it may see some play as anti damage-dealing AOE, right?
