    Its going to be in every deck that's not aggro, and even then Im not exactly sure with that. If you have a chance at 6 mana Mind Control with a 5/5 in what world will you refuse to play it. Even if you can't infuse it consistently it'll still do what you need in the first place, remove the minion.

    Like most nathria cards, it seems only to be countered by itself. Im no fan of such design choices, but if it does exist I can see no reason to not play it.

    This seems really good. Infuse is actually a decent keyword, and Mind Control for 6 mana is really good. And worst case scenario it destroys a minion and leaves a decent body on board. This seems pretty good. It probably will see play in midrange/control decks.

    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 like the callback to the HOF Sylvanas Windrunner, which got rotated out due to its ubiquity. Considering that the OG version picked a random opposing minion, and it was in so many decks, a targeted version seems like a no brainer. The game's a lot different than those days though, so I don't think this will break the game in any way - most probably whatever you steal will get killed off pretty quickly, or considering all the Infuse decks out there, get stolen right back, haha. Cool card though, hope the voicelines rock, I love that Sylvanas voice.

    Should be amazing in Shaman and decent in other classes as well even though you will probably play the un-infused version more often than not.

    Even as a 6-mana Assassinate it still gives a lot of classes hard removal that they otherwise have no real access too while occasionally being an even better removal tool.


    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.
