It's a card for token decks that can use the tokens more efficiently or finish the opponent with them. Token Shaman and Token Egg Druid have a great use for this card.
I think people are making a huge mistake by comparing this to cards like Devilsaur Egg or Nerubian Egg. I think this card is on a similarish power level to Haunted Creeper. It's obviously weaker on the front-half of the body since you need a way to either destroy it or buff it in order to get the benefit of the deathrattle, but the back-half is stronger. Even today, Haunted Creeper is a very powerful card in wild for Shaman and Paladin - it has an excellent win rate in the decks that use it despite the insane power level of the format, so I think there's room for Scarab Egg in Standard too.
It's difficult to predict the future, but this slots right into Even Shaman, and decks like Warlock or even Paladin might see a use for it too. I think it's better than Primalfin Totem for example, and Scarab Egg is absolutely going to see more play post rotation in April.
Hold up...this isn't that ba, obviously weaker than Nerubian for tempo, but we also just got a bunch of Warlock cards that synergize with stuff dying. We also still have Ravenous Pterrordax, Sanguine Reveler that new Warlock 5/7 that bombs your opponents face.
Biggest issue with Sacrifice lock was the low number of sacrificeable minions. Now wwe have 2 eggs that are useful.
Don't forget the best card of the set, Arena Chest
I like that this egg is a bit different. The old Nerubian Egg was a 4/4 off the deathrattle. Three 1/1s isn't as good. But that's OK. It's different for an egg like this to spawn a bunch of smaller minions. Maybe there's a better synergy somewhere. But is the future power level of eggs goes down a little bit, I'm fine with that.
Pretty good with Grim Rally. and Spirit of the Bat
Still looks good but worse than I first thought.
Quest is "play" not "summon"
Although with Springpaw and Halazzi, the Lynx, Quest Hunter looks like it'll still be getting a huge boost!
Another egg! Soon we will be able to play turns 1-10 with eggs only. Next hunter spell : Hatch!
I will seriously build a deck around whatever weirdass 10 mana egg they decide to release.
now paladin has access to 3 eggs. everyone else has 2. I cant wait to see some more egg decks.
Im specifically counting devilsaur egg scarab egg and mechano-egg as they are all higher impact minion spawning eggs in standard.
Corrupted Egg isn't a collectible card dude.
