    Nasty anti-Aggro tool.

    But probably only some Midrange decks will actually use it.

    Could be of some use in a Big minions deck, specially if your opponent is aggro...

    Guess we're not gonna spend a lot of dust on neutral epics

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Meme card. Yes it has some anti-aggro potential but too highroll-y. You need a lot of luck for this to work.

    I'll try one in my wild Shudderwock deck to take advantage of faster decks, and potentially disrupt combo decks. However, I don't see this as a strong turn 5 play against aggro.

    Let's say you play priest you run sw pain or forbidden words right? You play this card, you draw forbidden words, they draw leeroy.. 

    Yep perfect anti aggro tool.

    It might be a filler, but it's an interesting one. I've never said no to cards with interesting effects.

    I really don't see what deck wants Tentacled Menace. The vanilla statline helps it a bit, but the effect is really weird. I guess in a "Big" deck like Big Paladin you could use this to try and swap costs, but it's typically the case that "Big" archetypes still have to include lots of cheap removal tools cards, and Tentacled Menace really wants your mana curve to be bad/unplayable to make this work consistently.

    Maybe Big Warrior can get value out of this, because where other classes have cheap ways to get big stuff out (Paladin has Duel!, Druid has ramp, etc.) Warrior's "Big" payoffs are expensive (e.g. Dimensional Ripper, The Boom Reaver, and The Boomship).

    Revolves entirely around your opponent drawing a cheap card and you drawing an expensive one, and works against you in any other situation. Looks kinda bad

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    Another card to help control decks reach their endgame.

    '''Cool''' Effect but this is not going to see competitive play, 1/5

    Or, you know, you draw Plague, they draw whatever card...?

    I said "nasty", not "perfect".

    I said "some Midrange deck", not "whatever deck".

    This is just absurd. Literally nobody will ever play this - I mean, in 4 months I can honestly say I never once have seen Mischief Maker nor do I ever recall seeing Griftah. Boo this card. Boo him!

    this isnt really the big shaman support i was looking for. could be strong though, control decks looking to slow down aggro, maybe make leeroy cost 10??

    Not even good against aggro because if you're playing control you need your opponent to run out of cards ASAP.

    Gosh dang it, cards bad.

    Fun card but not competitive. Will see play is some meme decks for fun, but I don't think it will see a lot of play in ladder.

    This won't likely be in a serious competitive deck, but it will be a lot of fun in a big deck.

    Why are all of the neutral epics weird meme cards?

    It is a little frustrating how this card was almost an amazing card. If it made each player draw a minion, then you could play it in a big minion deck, or just in a deck that wants to tutor specific minions. This card could have been an interesting deck building card, but instead it will just be disappointing to open.
