    Going to be a fun card.

    As others have mentioned, the pool of DR minions in Standard is kind of lacking at the moment. 

    Wild on the other hand... this card is going to be a blast to play with!

    This card may finally convince me to craft Sneed’s for wild deathrattle rogue. Such a cool design. Standard needs more dr’s that have tempo for this to be super impactful. The lack of rogue defensive toolkit limit this in a wombo combo deck. Maly rogue would love extra draw DRs but will jus fold to aggro/midrange pressure.

    In right deck potentially very dangerous card, but deathrattle rogue was so far not very impressing. Can this push the archetype into meta? I don´t think so.

    A very good card for my Big rogue in wild :D .. it has a specific card draw effect and also gets a deathrattle effect. Its only issue is that it needs a combo.. I hope we will see deathrattle rogue rise again.

    Good in deathrattle rogue. Though so far that archetype didn´t work out...

     This card can be scarry... if any op deathrattle will be released in this set or in next one, this card can tutor and mimic it's effect

    Big Deathrattle Rogue still feels a way off, even though it’s been getting support with Anka. But this is a good piece of the puzzle – the problem with Anka is that if you don’t draw her, your big deathrattles become stranded in hand. This gives you another way to cheat the deathrattles out early, and it curves well with Necrium Blade, Necrium Vial, and Anka alike. Glad they’re not giving up on the archetype!

    Hope this is going to give a boost to Big Rogue, if so I'm looking forward to play it!

    Cool card, I can think of various applications of it.

    Solid, will surely include in my Deathrattle Rogue decks!

    My RenoCthunN'zoth deck is very happy, I love slow control decks cause it feels so good to win, and this is perfect for that, get some value of your greedy legendaries like sneeds or sylvanas some turn earlier.

    It may be used on wild´s big rogue, since it cheats out dethrattles but does not pollute N´Zoth´s res pool. If combo is active, its a +1 health over a neutral card draw, with added tutor effect.

    Too bad nzoth is leaving when this comes around. Besides that it's a draw and deathrattle effect and with the extra health can be more useful with Necrium Blade.

    I have a Necrium Blade + Loot Hoarder/Thalnos brew that looks to cycle into Nomi.

    This card has me so excited for that - but can be so much stronger in a meta combo.

    The stats are defensive and reminiscent of Evil Miscreant version 2.  The value hidden in this minion is insane if you combine that with the filtered draw + Death rattle eff. 

    Very strong card. Rogue will need something with this kindv midgamr oomph to merit Galakrond and compete against the new quality of Control.

    I don't think this is a good card, but it helps deathrattle Rogue once it loses N'Zoth.
