    Of all the cards to get alt skins its this one. Just a palette swap, mind you. A dip into the waters before one day selling alt arts for other cards Im sure.

    Probably see it generated more often than actually existing in the deck. Because this card is carp, I mean crap. Its outdone by Emerald Skytalon for god's sake.

    There's probably a minion down the pipelines that summon a bunch of these to fill the board. Because I doubt team5 would give this an alt art without having a card to justify it all. And also because in what world will anyone actually put this in their deck deliberately?

    Not terrible, but is it something you would actually build your deck around? I'm assuming we get plenty of generators, but there needs to be some sort of win condition that works with this.

    Also worth noting that it's not an aura effect, so no stacking damage, only intervals of 1-2-3-4...


    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Bad stats, probably only sees play when generated.

    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.

    I love the art and would love to like the card more but it seems way to weak to find it`s way into standard ...

    meh.  It's a fun idea, but I'd also be hesitant to blow it off. Irondeep Trogg looked awful at first as well

    I suppose dropping two of these in your deck could give a couple more to the ones you get from Piranha Poacher. Still, I don't know if this should go in a deck unless copy effects aren't too hard to pull off.

    I don't think anyone will be including the actual Piranha Swarmer in their decks. More like generating them off Schooling and Piranha Poacher. It's a decent rush minion that synergizes with itself, so it's not terrible, just not that great either

    I don't think Shaman is the home that will make Piranha Swarmer decks a thing; maybe if Warrior or Paladin had got Schooling instead and could put it to use in handbuff decks. Doubt the card itself finds a place in any decks.

    I have spoken.

    Love the idea of an alternative art, I hope they include this idea on later expansions

    Piranha Shaman? Piranha Shaman. Will it be good?... Maybe if the opponent is busy sleeping with the fishes.

    I don't really see a reason to run this. It seems very lackluster to warrant a spot in any deck.
