I really like this card. I am really surprised that they would make such a thing for Rogue and the shark spirit. It will probably won't be competitive though because of the RNG but it seems so much fun. It should of been 6 mana 5/6 minion that is a pirate with the same battlecry. I think the stats are bad currently on it because it is odd
Combined with the Spirit of the Shark this could be really powerful. Not sure the combo will be reliable enough to actually see any play though - there will be some seriously trash battlecry minions in the discover pool remember!
There are some good neutral battlecry minions, but looking at the rogue ones, which will be the most common case, I don't think that this minion is good. Bad stats, high cost and an unreliable outcome - 1 star.
But imagine for a sec, that we see a minion, which puts itself into the discover pool. So when we discover something, this is always one of the 3 options. Maybe the rogue legendary will function like that.
This card is gonna be fun as shit with the shark spirit. Play the spirit turn 8, play this turn 9 and get two battlecry minions, then play both for 1 and double their battle cry. The card is too slow for sure, but the effect is certainly very strong Unplayable trash like Myra Rotspring becomes good, Even bad neutral battlecries like Giggling Inventor or Corpse Raiser become pretty powerful with this effect. Love to see fun stuff like this i can play with even if it isnt good
Blizzard is finally rightfully pushing for Combo/Battlecry Rogue. I always hated how they pushed for deathrattle Rogue, which is in the exact opposite direction of what the class originally meant to be about, which is Combo/battlecries and bounce effects.
Garbage card and here's why. First, 7+ cost minions that don't impact the state of the board are very hard to play. Aggro decks are trying to kill you on turn 7 or turn 8 and if you ignore their board and drop this steaming turd on the battlefield you get 100% wrecked the next turn, if it had taunt it might be playable but it doesn't. Secondly, it's under-statted for the cost so it's not going to put enough pressure on control decks and a 1 mana 1/1 with a random battlecry (okay it's not completely random but it's not exactly targetable) isn't enough to make up for the fact that you're playing a 7 mana 5/7. Finally, this card fits into 0 current archetypes of rogue and the new rogue cards are ALL OVER THE PLACE so I don't imagine we'll be seeing a new Rogue archetype emerge. I'm glad he's epic, that way you can be at least somewhat excited about the dust you'll get if you open a pack with this guy in it.
