    I love it! Great flavor, fun reference to Thing from the Addams family, and a pretty good card too! The pool of undead in Standard is pretty wide, but not so huge that this will lack consistency.

    5/5 for the art alone.

    I feel consistency is exactly what is lacking with Farm Hand. There are a ton of bad Undead, and Death Knight doesn't have a lot of ways to guarantee the Quickdraw beyond "hope you don't draw it at the wrong time". A chain could work, with something like Necrotic Mortician into Farm Hand, but you're not running it in the deck itself in that instance: you're just fishing for an answer.

    Is it a terrible card? No. Is it simply 'okay'? Yes, which in modern Hearthstone is not really what you're looking for.

    Its simple to judge a card like this.

    Discover effects are good in DK. Hence, this card will see play. Its really that simple. Even if you dont trigger the quickdraw its gonna give you a chance at getting an undead you wouldn't normally have access to, such as Pile of Bones, or reska. Or even Frost Queen Sindragosa, imagine playing that card on 5.

    There's just nothing else for it. Id be surprised if this card doesnt see play.

    It will be a real shame if you can't get that discount.

    The only card in the set with a double same rune requirement!  Unholy will run the card, as more undead means more corpses, with the discount being on top is very strong.  


    I remember the days when discovering a card was on a 2 mana 1-1.

    Solid minion. 3 mana discover is nice, considering plenty of people already use the 2 mana amalgam to discover, but this also provides mana cheat which is almost always good. I think this will see plenty 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.
