Someone on another card thread pointed out how this seems like a Wild expansion. This card is more definitive proof of that idea, what with Kobold Librarian and Vulgar Homunculus being such great activators. Even if you're just Life Tapping, this is some really solid value.

"The quickest way to 'think outside the box' is to realize the truth: the only real box is the one you create by limiting your thoughts."
6 mana draw a card, summon a 3/5 and a 3 cost minion, and only 2 deal two damage to your hero? sweet. this has pretty good defensive stats (only like 1 stat away) while having a very powerful active effect, i can see this being played in both control and a bit more value based zoo lock
fuck yes i think this will pretty good in Zoo. Good stats so it will stuck on bord and the effect is also pretty good with spirit bomb or lifetap. After all the (for me) super boring Control Metas i see light at the end of the tunnle for aggro again.
Compared to Vex Crow or Violet Teacher this is more powerful (stats and effect) and easier to activate in return for a slight downside, but Zoolock wants to start tapping when they start running dry anyway. Zoo will love this. Control Warlock has better things to do than summon a random 3 drop.
Its like a Violet Teacher that has a better ongoing effect and you dont even need to build your deck around it. Life tap is enough but if you have some more activators its obviously better. So Im pretty sure it will see play.
Also the guy who said in the Riftcleaver topic that they will introduce another self-damage synergy card in Uldum deserves a cookie.
This is good in zoo, but it also may be the thing you need for a more midrange oriented type of zoo that actually makes use of things like Riftcleaver and doesn't have to spray and pray with low value 1/1's.
