    Very nice to see a neutral handbuff option for all classes in the core set.  The more viable archetypes the better.

    A nice card to add to your Dude Paladin. It won't be game breaking or anything, but a fun card to mess around with.

    A better Grimestreet Enforcer but that card has always been too slow and Im hard pressed to see this card as anything else.

    Once a while it lets you dream of the greatest possibilities that in practice will almost always fall flat on the ground.

    Nice neutral Handbuff. I think this could be a card lots of players will underestimate - or at least i hope so because i always kinda liked handbuff stuff :)

    Handbuffing is cute and all, but a 3/6 rusher is far from great. Should have been swapped because I fail to see how this would ever live for more than a turn.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Very strong handbuff card and it has an immediat effect. Seems really solid. Also it's 6 health MIGHT let it live another turn... but despite that your opponent will always immedialty take it down, as it's a BIG threath.

    Also this synergises well with Blademaster Samuro. I think this will see at the very least experimentation.

    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.

    That kind of cards usually dies in one turn, so that card is like a 5 mana 3/6 Rush battlecry: Give +1+1 to your hand.

    Looks ok, I'll try a meme priest deck to duplicate/resurrect him and buff my charge Minions.

    It's a decent handbuff card. Seems like it wants to be buffed itself too. Hardest part with handbuff stuff is keeping your hand full while playing buffed up minions.

    I'd love to see handbuff pushed again this year. I enjoyed the Goons of Gadgetzan a lot and Hireek needs some love too.

    This card needed rush for it to be even remotely playable. Also with the new frenzy mechanic, hand buffs might actually look desirable...

    Yo, this guy looks great! Also, I love that handbuff is now in the core set, and neutral too!

    Maybe with removing a minion and buffing once is enough, but I get what you mean. I used to play Grimestreet Enforcer even in non handbuff decks, just because I liked it so much.

    Smuggler's Run with legs?  Sure!  Let's face it, it will be a KOS minion for sure
