    Reminds me of the Hunter spell from Rumble that I forgot the name of. Pretty good with Prep, very good with the Nage guy, but awful on its own. Also a good target for Cutlass to discount.

    Really confused about Rogue at the moment so it#s hard to tell whether this would ever see play.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Seems super fillery to me. Sure it's great tempo, deal 3 and have a 5/5 to crash into something else, but otherwise I'm not seeing a home for this.

    This is the less exciting of the two spells that I would want to play with Swiftscale Trickster, but at least it's got that going for it. Probably too expensive to play without the mana cheat of the Trickster.

    I have spoken.

    In rogue its just not exciting. Basically its doing 8 damage most of the time, with a chance for a 5/5. But at 6 mana its just never going to do more than removing 8 health from board.

    Not sure if this will find a place in the upcoming meta. I see different rogue lists but this doesn't fit anywhere in those!

    Could be a nice combo with Swiftscale Trickster but I'm sure Rogue can do better things though. This is definitely a great Arena card but wouldn't be surprised if it sees no play in constructed.

    Unleash the Beast Without twinspell, but instead it has deal 3 dmg. This seems... Bad but remember that every rogue spell is generally balanced with [Hearthstone Card (Preperation) Not Found] in mind, so it's technically a 4 mana deal 3 summon a 5/5 with rush.

    That said, Swiftscale Trickster in this case might be better than Preparation because this combo costs the same amount of mana AND additionally you get a 2/2 body! This seemingly mediocre/fair spell might actually see a lot of play.

    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.

    Is 6 mana for 8 damage good? Maybe. A bit expensive for a Rogue spell, but there's also Swiftscale Trickster.

    I'm only seeing use for this in Arena maybe, but in constructed, I'd rather have other shapes and forms of removal. Not sold on this one

    Doesn't seem all that crazy for 6 mana. I could be wrong, but I think this one won't see much play.
