    The true version is a 3/6 charge minion that gives you a card from another class and cost 3 less.

    Honestly, its a good card but obviously can only be played in thief decks. You'll never need a card like this in most rogue decks that arent thief because its realistically not really that great even after it transforms to its true form. Just a nice little card that does something decent, not game breaking or anything.

    The charge is interesting, because it also means you can Shadowstep it to do more damage, but I doubt you'll play thief cards in non thief decks just to do this.

    Seems pretty mid to me. Easy enough to transform, but only a moderate payoff. I'd love to be wrong, though, as it's a really cool concept.

    True form:

    3 mana 3/6 Charge. When this attacks discover a card from another class. It costs (3) less.


    I play nothing but Wild Thief Rogue (climbed to Diamond 2 last month) and this card is at best not very much better than what we already have access to and at worst it is yet another dead card in hand (this tends to be a weakness of thief rogue when you get too many Tess effects too early or weapon buffs but no weapons etc).


    With 2 Shadowsteps this is a 5 mana 3/6 charge deal 6 damage kinda. Add 3 great cards to your hand (probably..). Ok that sounds enticing sure, but you have to do the math that that is like a 6-card combo for not that big of an effect so I'll pass.


    My problem with this card is mostly in the top-decking. In fact, even in my starting hand I worry if I can consistently get 3 cards from other classes PLAYED when I need dude to hit something when a 3/6 is viable stats!


    As a Burgle Main I really hate to say that this card is probably bad. It really saddens me because I was hoping Rogue would have gotten a Highlander effect. Something big like Battlecry: for the rest of the game replay a card from another class you have played or something. It's really too bad..
