I've just finished playing a game and something happened which is new to me.
I was playing as Druid, with Flobbidinous Floop and Yogg Saron. I played my Yogg Saron, hoping to play it again next turn using my flobbidinous floop.
Instead, on my next turn, my flobbidionous floop became a Hex Lord Malacrass - a card I definitely didn't just play! During the next turn my opponent began casting strange cards too such as Shadow Visions and mage based elementals.
I'm assuming it's not a bug, and Yogg must have cast some spell - but what? He literally didn't survive as he cast the Shaman spell on himself which transformed him into a random legendary minion.
When they nerfed yogg they did something weird with the battlecry code. Instead of (If played >THEN> initiate battlecry) It must be simultaneous so as to end the battlecry if Yogg is transformed. Floop could possibly then read it as Malacrass (a 5/5) was "played" instead of the initial Yogg.
That's my guess on the spaghetti monster coding at least.
Yogg's battlecry transformed it in to hex lord most likely.
Floop is weird like that. For example, if you faceless manipulator a Lich King, then Floop would play as the Lich King, not faceless manipulator.
This is because the battlecry transforms a minion before it's resolved onto the board, so Floop reads the last minion you played as Hex Lord.
I never knew this! So this is a big of a bug that could be taken advantage of then? Faceless a 10 cost minion and get another copy immediately for 4 mana? Wow!
Are there any decks you know of built around this? :)
I'm not sure if it's a bug, it's just how the game is coded. I'm sure they've noticed by now since it's a known interaction that was fairly common in Malygos druid when it used to run faceless.
Not sure there is a deck built around it because it's really only useful when your opponent plays something with crazy value. There aren't a lot of minions that transform upon playing them that are for druid/neutral. Other than Faceless, there is War Druid Loti. If you Floop that you can get a 3/4 of whichever form you chose, lol.
