    This card messes with highlander decks and deathrattle aspect can be easily abused to fill your opponent's deck with worthless junk, but history learn us that this is not good enough to be pulled out outside of wierd fringe decks.

    Oh no

    A deathrattle deck with this as a main focus has to be made.

    And someone has to play it in official tournaments

    Well it can screw with your opponent sometimes, especially if you don't care about fatigue much.

    Not really a Wild expert, but seems like it's much more oriented for Wild than for standard.

    I strangely got a feeling that this set has a lot of Wild oriented cards.

    This card is great especially in wild or also against highlander decks. And also can be useful in arena. I love it! :D

    ...The Albatross begins with his vengeance,

    A terrible curse, a thist has begun,

    The shipmates blame bad luck on the mariner....

    ... And the tale goes on, and on and on.....

    I want to play this in wild, along with Weasel Tunneler and Baron Rivendare, and use either Rogue or Hunter for all the extra DR triggers. Just stuff their deck full of useless 1/1's forever. (Mad cackling).

    This is a card for aggressive decks, it's a counter for "Reno deck" and make worse the odd to draw something good for the enemy

    Weasel Tunneler is back, boys. Except it actually looks good as a tech card vs Highlander. I think it’s an above average 3-drop, Beast tag included.

    I think this card is really good. The effect can be disruptive and drawing these are bad for the opponent. In wild though, Weasel deck will like this

    Seems like a niche tech against highlander decks—will probably only see run in midrange hunter due to it's good aggressive stats and the beast tag. In wild, disabling the highlander trigger isn't the best way to beat it as there are many other strong standalone cards in the deck. Just a solid aggressive beast in arena.

    Pure anti-highlander tech, so will see play if highlander decks are popular. As a minor bonus it isn't understatted.

    No idea why would they release this, League of explorer have already an incredible roguh time dealing with galakrond and now you disable their 3 best cards what a joke.

    stats are on the weaker side for a 3 drop but are ok. the deathrattle can disrupt enemies strategies like zephrys decks or draw dependant decks. not a bad card but probably more of a tech option, if at all

    Nifty card, has interesting use in stopping Highlander decks.  Might see play as a tech card in aggressive decks.

    It's not terrible stat wise.

    yeah it can potentially ruin your opponents card draw but that's kinda minor

    The number of tech cards in this expansion. It seems a lot of answers are released before people start complaining. Some anticipation from the devs feels good for a change and I hope they will  be keeping this approach.

    The The Darkness felt horrible to use in wild as a tech, this one will definitely do a better job .
