Doesn't seem worth running in non-deathrattle decks, but with N'zoth or maybe Play Dead this card seems pretty good. A big problem I see is that you'd have to include a lot of 8-mana cards in addition to this 7-mana card, wich would make your curve quite high.

On the third day before Witchwood, Blizzard gave to me,
Its like Big-Time Racketeer if you didnt have to add an additional card to make its battlecry work, and that you dont draw the added card.
Obviously its good with non-battlecry high impact 8 drops like Tirion or Rag, granted that you havent drawn it. But I feel the draw-rng will make it gimmicky in classes like paladin, and unplayable in nearly everything else.
It's interesting. The deathrattle makes opponents less likely to want to kill it, leaving a body on your board to buff with a Bonemare or something.
You also need a fairly greedy deck for this to work; it's already a seven mana minion, and you'll need more than one 8 mana if you want to minimize the chance of drawing your recruit target and having this end up being a vanilla 3/3 for 7 mana.
