    LOL, great card name and concept. Looks solidly playable with a strong effect and an Excavation.

    Not the best Excavate card in my opinion. You'd want to get to your Azerite Murloc quickly to run them down with Evolved minions, but it might take forever to find a suitable target...or you're blasting something small, which is a gigantic waste.

    A smaller cost (with less damage) would have been more preferable; like a modern Stormcrack.

    Just a terrible card. But in the end, youre probably forced to play it regardless if you aim to play excavate in shaman, not that Im all that optimistic about that prospect outside of highlander, because if I have to be honest the payoff in azerite murloc is not only weak, its probably unplayable.

    Ironically in decks where you would want to play excavate to take advantage of the murloc payoff, which is a cheap aggro deck 90% of the time, you probably would be spitting bile at this card's direction because its even more terrible there than it would otherwise be.

    Wouldn't be surprised if this gets buffed to 3. Because its unplayable otherwise.

    There are so many big creatures these days, I don't think you'll be "wasting damage" as often as you think. It's fine. The payoff for excavating is so good that I don't mind the setup being a little expensive.

    That's a funny name for a card. Feels like a minecraft reference to me lol. Not sure how good this is. 4 mana deal 8 is basically 4 mana destroy a minion, but it might just be overkill. But hey excavate = excavate, so it will see play.

    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.
