    There was a time where I doubted SI:7 Skulker could even feature in standard. Proven wrong then. And this card is an even bigger version and more consistent with its effect.

    So if nothing else, if midrange comes back so will this card be playable. And honestly, sometimes having a 1 mana discount is all you need to gain an insurmountable advantage.

    No tribal tag, high cost and no immediate effect. Sunken treasures wouuld have to be very good for this to be any kind of useful

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Meh, just an arena card.

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    Looked decent at first but now im not sure this will see play outside of arena or if it is going to be discovered in some way ... 

    sure if there will be some good dredge decks with treasures and colossals this could work but still , i think there will be better cards you would play over this one.

    Looks like most "sunken" cards aren't very expensive, so maybe this won't be all that helpful.  Maybe most useful with Ambassador Faelin, since colossals are so far all pretty expensive.

    Yea nope, not including this card in standard. Arena is her place to shine

    Flavor text is neat though: With the jungles of Un’goro mapped out and the ruins of Uldum fully uncovered, explorers have to go a little out of their depth in their search of the great unknown.

    It's fine. Probably at its best in decks with minions like Ambassador Faelin or Sunken minions to "tutor" those cards, but there are cheaper ways to Dredge so really the only reason anyone would run this is for the mana reduction. Not likely to shake the meta up.

    I have spoken.

    Very powerful, you know exactly what you get and can manage to use your mana efficiently

    I'm not feeling that one. Kinda filler'esq to me

    Seems expensive for the dredge effect, and the classes that want to dredge often have better effects than a light discount.

    The stats aren't bad, but I don't think it justifies running it. Might be more of an Arena card than anything, and an average one at that.
