Very decent for extended matches in Arena where the game usually goes into topdeck wars, but the nice part about it is that it adds another dimension to things. Not sold on it being a staple in many decks in constructed, but with 130 cards in the Expansion, it is hard to predict.
I can see this being awesome. I really like Nefarion, and this guy can get more value from a thing you are already using. It can't be worse than getting a spare part, and value is value. This will end up with the same QQ threads as Thoughtsteal or anything else that can win you the game or lose you the game.
That stats are too low because it's an effective 4/5 7 Drop, there are way stronger 6 drops.
Could still be good for classes with poor card draw. 7 mana gets you 4/5 body with soft taunt, a use of hero power and a random spell which might be a really good one. Can also be played turn 5 and force your opponent to trade, use removal or bait a silence.
I can see this being played by warriors as a faster alternative to Ysera and Nefarrion. The spells might not synergise with other cards in your deck but it keeps your hand full and gives you something else to play.
Well I guess Blizzard are doomed to run out of actual lore characters at some point, so they might as well begin with new characters now... I mean it would be weird if they used all lore characters first and then ONLY had characters like this. Also it fits into the theme of this expansion to have new characters.
But hey, I like ethereals, so whatever! That parrot-riding pirate however...
At least I don't consider this card as stupidly ridiculous as Unstable Portal as it doesn't have as much potential for "throw the card on the table, win the game instantly!". Even though - needless to say - there's going to be a lot of BS, lucky lethal options and Trolden videos.
It feels like a really fun and interesting card and it's just calling to be played. Reminds me of Bligtron (which I personally admire) but I hope it doesn't end up being never seen again after a while.
