hmmmm. Seems like a worse Herald in a class that can actually use the effect more effectively. I'm not convinced it will see much play, but who knows. It has potential. Oh and this should actually be considered for rattle rogue more than anything else.
Problem is it doesn't pass the stats test. Stats are poor for cost and unless you copy something of amazing value the 1 mana 1/1 is also very bad stats. The text on said minion will have to be insane to make up for the tempo loss. Certainly a build around epic. Will it see play, who knows? Weak bodies traditionally don't see play unless their effect is extremely good. Not convinced.
I have the feeling you have no idea what you talking and simple trying to sound smart by copying something Trump will say, stats wise this card is ok you are paying 4 mana for 4/4 and 1 mana for the battle cry, wtf kind of stats "test" you are talking the most similar card is Azure Drake to compare stats and they are pretty similar in power level, comments like are just misleading and lack of real knowledge.
I dunno, such a fun card, but what could you copy with this card that you could also cast the same turn? Brann and Thalnos are the only cards under 3 that I can think of that would provide good value. Otherwise, cards like Malygos usually wont survive until your next turn.
Actually you'd copy Brann twice. This is the only real good combo that I can see. Battlecry rogue?
I doubt that this would be played over Azure Drake in other decks. Needs something on the board to be useful.
That's... actually a pretty great effect for Rogue.
Even if you're not being super greedy with it and trying to copy a Malygos or something, there's still some potent Battlecries and deathrattles that can be made use of, and the one mana acts as a combo starter for later.
I do feel like the more successful decks of this card will be the ones that aren't TOO greedy with it's effect: After all, five mana does usually mean your minion will have to stay on a board for a turn, and if they've got a powerful effect, they've already got a target on them.
All-in-all, I'm rather optimistic about this card.
