    Looks really fun! The "Mirage" in hand is permanent, so it should work like Vision of Darkness from Sister Svalna. You can play it as the minion it's currently copying, then it's still in your hand to play again. I wonder if this will cause a resurgence of Theotar?

    Cards like these can never truly be ignored, even if I personally dont see much this card can offer at current moment.

    Basically you get a copy of a minion from your deck every turn, the problem is youre playing a highlander deck and so results may very well vary too much to be anyway consistent.

    The only way this card becomes useful is where a very important minion, say neptulon, remains in the deck so you can just spam neptulons until your opponent gives up in anger. But even then every turn youve a chance to get screwed by drawing said card.

    Will it see play? Well, Im not holding my breath. Highlander pallys needs more help to be competitive.

    So Paladin is getting their version of Sister Svalna. I wonder if every class will eventually get a permanent card. Being able to get second copies (since this requires a highlander deck) of your minions seems nice at any rate.

    I could see some shenanigans with the Mirage. Ambassador Faelin comes to mind, providing you Colossals to play over and over while they remain safely at the bottom of your deck.
