    Ooh, I like this card! Sure, it's just a 2/1 that maybe you can res a bunch of times. But it's such a coo concept, and in terms of value, maybe even pretty good! How many times will you be able to Excavate?

    Decently strong car...wait, its a fucking multirune card.

    FFS team5, why.

    Its more or less established that the frost excavate DK would be something for DK to do next expansion, so why'd you put an unholy rune requirement there? Or are we debating whether Frostwyrm's Fury is something we'd definitely, definitely never play just to fit a card like this in the deck.

    The only reason why Im not lowering my score further than 3 stars is that I concede there might* be a chance we'd just play plague UUF DK, so this card can fit in fine. But seriously, even if excavate is good, you'd always want to play frostwyrm's fury because why wouldnt you? Nothing comes close to that card in terms of power.

    So as long as you can excavate, this will come back until it gets silenced or something. Looks too weak to matter without buffs, but I'm sure something can be done about that.

    If a frost unholy deck wants to excavate then it probably plays this. Will that be a thing? Doubtful. Also I'm not sure if this is even worth it compared to just playing an infected peasant.

    Not sure if rainbow wants to be excavating rather than running thinks to generate/spend corpses.  Really interesting card design, but I don't think it will see play.

    This seems like trash to me. Resummoning this seems alright, but the problem is that you have to play a 2 mana 2/1 minion. This messes with other excavate cards like Kobold Miner. And i feel like DK Excavate stuff is way too slow. 

    Honestly with Excavate DK being this slow, i feel like this at 1 mana would be much better. And there is only a limited amount of excavate cards, so at some point you can't ress this anymore. Or if it was a 2 mana 2/1 with rush, it would be a lot better as well.

    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.
