    As others have said, effect is good, but cost is prohibitive. The way I see it, the problem isn't the stats for cost, but that this is too slow and expensive to easily abuse regardless of the stats.

    No Hir'eek sinergy...

     Well, the discard your lowest Cost card theme could be useful for ensuring you hit Hir'eek with your handbuffs, but yes, this is oddly discordant. I guess they didn't want to make Warlock overpowered, so they are splitting focus with different themes so none of them are too powerful.

    Who rates these cards out of context? Only way to really know a cards potential is to see the whole set.  Even then most will say try them out before making any conclusions.

     Very good point. But you can still do an early review knowing it will be unreliable, just taking at stab at how it will turn out.

    Idk why people are brining up shudderwock shaman, it won't play something like this.  Mana efficiency is usually pretty important in that deck and it already has several overload cards with no benefit from overload.  It gets no benefit/synergy from Keleseth, grumble, or shudderwock.  It actually has anti synergy with them.

    Electra + flood the board with toads, LUL.

    Spreading plague so much better than this because it answers the board.  This is a set 3 minions which isn't better when it counts (against a wide board)

     I do like this for Electra.  Do you have to pay the Overload twice, though?  I don’t play overload a ton...

     Yes, Electra doubles the overload. Not an amazing combo then.

    I don't see this battle cry making much of an impact, unless they're making more hero atk buff cards like claw and bite. in a malfurian twig deck you do 4 damage, otherwise your doing one damage without claw or bite use. Will this make a feral druid themed deck ?. 

     Given this card exists and is the first revealed druid card, I'd say the chances of their being more hero atk buff cards is very high.

    I am not quite sure this is healthy to the game.

    Definitely not healthy. If combo decks are a thing this meta, this card creates more Rock Paper Scissors matchups, with Warlock being the ultimate anti-combo class.

     It is concerningly devastating. It isn't guaranteed to actually ruin the opponent's combo though, but the deciding factor there is randomness which is not great.

    Seems like a playable card in any control or overload shaman.

    I imagine this will fit into whatever shaman's main theme is here.

    Maybe it's toad tribal lol.

    Hard to imagine this seeing wide spread and regular play because of how bad it is against aggro, tempo and most midrange decks.

    It isn't even an auto win against combo decks as they might already have pieces in hand/in the rest of the deck.

    I imagine it will probably show up here and there though given combo decks have been very strong, could maybe be a strong tech card.

    Theoretically, this could also enable some disgusting combo deck, maybe one that uses fatigue.

    Warlock seems to be getting a handbuff theme while Paladin is getting a spells theme. I wonder if mage will have a hero power theme?

    Seems decent in Odd Mage at least, as others have pointed out.

    This does seem very dependent on both the metagame and whether priest gets support for a tempo deck with cheap minions to buff.

    My suspicion is that this will be bad, but it could always be great.

    posted a message on MC tech - the problem no one sees?

    I think MCtech is fairly balanced, but I do think it's not a particularly fun card and doesn't promote particularly balanced games.

    I would like to see it changed to do an effect that is a little less swingy, but still provide the functionality of a counter to going wide as I think that's a nice thing to have.

    Maybe giving itself a buff. Maybe drawing you cards.

    Compare to Spreading Plague. SP similarly punishes the opponent for having many minions, but the variance is linearly based on the number of minions, not based on a random draw of getting their best minion, which makes it more predictable and less annoying.

    It's not a big problem, but I think there may be room for a little improvement. Sylvanas was definitely worse. That doesn't mean MCtech is perfect either.

    A 5/5 battlecry: deal 3 might not even see much play. This is absolute garbage

     What? Bull. That would be a slightly better fire elemental, and fire elemental is good.

    As far as how this card actually is, it seems roughly borderline playable to me.

    Compared to Flanking Strike- this is usually a deal 2 damage to a minion and get a 5/5, which does seem better. Of course, it costs 1 more and needs to actually kill a minion to get the devilsaur, but it can also deal 3 to the face to finish someone off, and can kill a dangerous 3 health minion in a pinch.

    I'd guess this is somewhat more likely to not see significant play than so, and it's never going to be an all star, but I'd give it a chance.

    Shallow Gravedigger doesn't seem good enough to include.

    Cloaked Huntress seems like a much better choice. Especially if you replace Grievous Bite with another secret which I think you probably should to capitalise on Professor Putricide and because Grievous Bite isn't very good. Snipe or Misdirection maybe.
