It's obviously only good if Rogue can survive long enough to play this, but this + Pogo + Scheme could be pretty broken. In general, it takes away the drawback of the shuffle mechanic that you no longer need to wait to draw the cards you want more of.
I kinda hoped Rogue would get another Boss from Dungeon Run as the second legendary, maybe Xol, which I'd really like to see as legendary.
Anyway, if Rogue should ever get the tools to play a slow value-game without getting overrun by anything that plays more than 2 minions, this is pretty interesting with all the shuffle-cards. But the cards so far don't indicate that this is the way for Rogue.
This card absolutely shouldn't exist. Imagine if you had a hand of 6 cards on turn 10, including an Academic Espionage, a Preparation, and Tak Nozwhisker. If you play Tak, then prep + espionage, you will effectively draw 7 cards that cost 1 each, and have the mana to play any two of them that turn. As virtually all espionage decks run prep, this isn't an unlikely scenario and it provides absurd amounts of both tempo and value. Additionally, it subverts the main liability of espionage, which is drawing through all your cheap stolen cards to get at ones you actually want to use.
Meta defining but in a horrible OP RNG-based sort of way.
problem with this is it currently has 2 total cards that support it (Lab Recruiter and toggwaggle's scheme), and requires the minion you want in hand to be on board to guarantee that you can do this all in 1 turn.
Its kinda a tall order but if you are going for something smaller for some tempo plays it might be good (like lackeys or something).
Cool card but not really competitive, can work really well with Espionage, which means that Burgle Rogue players will have more cool tools to play with which is nice. A part from the interaction with Espionage I feel like it's way too expensive, slow, and greety.
First of all kudos where kudos is due. The real life hearthstone reveal videos are in a league of its own. Absolutely amazing.
Looking at the card: completely useless or completely broken depending on the draw. Really polarizing design. Not the biggest fan. But boy is this one gonna be in highlight reels. Prep + espionage is basically gg. That's how crazy this is. But if you dont have exactly those three cards...I dont see a good use...maybe lab recruiter pogo?
