    I'm not too clear on the "Switch" part. Is this like Spitelash Siren, so it will change to "After you play a spell, deal 2 damage and draw a naga"? I guess it might facilitate some kind of APM Demon Hunter where you draw and play a ton of cards in one turn, and strike the face for a lot. Hard to see that being lethal, though.

    I personally dont think it'll be as successful as it would compared to stuff like Lady S'theno and Spitelash Siren.

    As an OTK card, it'll require quite an astonishing amounts of discounts to do and it has absolutely no way to do more than 2 damage to face at a time, unlike s'theno, and unlike siren it doesnt refresh any mana for you, so what you can do is always going to be limited.

    Its best function, at least to me, is actually as a draw engine and occasional board removal. That way, you can realistically draw somewhere around 2-4 cards with it and call it a good turn.

    But after how s'theno virtually took over the class for over a year, enduring multiple nerfs across dhunter's set throughout, I simply cannot write this off. At some point team5 would make a mistake and print some disgusting card that will allow this to be OP. For that reason alone Im rating this a solid 5 stars for potential, even if I personally dont think it'll ever get there.

    There might be enough cheap nagas available to DH to make this worthwhile. You'll probably want some Mana discounts and I'm not sure what DH has available for that.

    Not as good as Spitelash Siren, but still good with value generation.  I think this won't be an OTK type of card, but more a reload.  This is my Day 1 deck though, I love the back and forth play of Naga/Spell.

    Not as good as the previous naga pay-offs like Spitelash Siren and Lady S'theno, but still a solid one. DH has a lot of draw synergy right now, and this provides another pay-off for running Snake Eyes. As long as DH doesn't get mass mana cheat that can synergize with this in the future, then i think this will be fair and solid pay-off.

    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.
