    This, combined either Bomb Squad, Ticking Abomination, and the little skeleton dude is a hilarious way for Warlocks to tech against N’zoth.

    So someone work on this because I’m terrible but I was thinking of the Unlicensed Apothercary interactions. Would dirty rat work? Also would moat lurker perhaps be useful too?

      Moat Lurker would still work as intended, except now THEY have a 3/3 instead.

    Is there a way to use Unlicensed Apothecary with this card? I was thinking Leeroy but the combo is too expensive. Imagine if warlocks had that 2/6 taunt that summons 3 raptors for the opponent. You give them the 3 mana 5/5 imp and do some kind of otk with th 5 dmg per summoned minion effect.

    A really cool design, definitely some fun stuff Warlock can do with this. We’ll have to see how practical those applications are, but I’m optimistic for the moment.

      It did exist and it was super broken. Hope in your time machine, go back about 10-15 years and play magic :-p

      This is a word for word knock off of “donate” which was used in a very degenerate combo deck. There was another card that basicly was 4 mana battlecry gain 30 life, deathrattle loose 30 life AND you had to pay exponentially more mana each turn to keep it alive.

      Right now this card looks cute. just wait until the standard card pool gets bigger and need fewer cards to kill people with it. we will see how MeMe it feels then.

    So, Imagine they add a card that can reactivate a battlecry of a minion, so you get a lord jarraxus on a board, give it to the opponent, use this spell, and sacrefise it #easygame

      You won’t be able to give them Jaraxxus if the Battlecry procced on you, though, so that makes your combo more difficult.

    This card seems really slow and dangerous to me. The card has no utility outside of a deck built around it, but then you’re combo dependent (and very vulnerable to aggro) and you have a deck with minions you don’t want to play unless you draw this card. Yeah, that mystery Warlock opponent that never played a card and you crushed in 5 turns…

    You really need to play the minion, exchange it, and blow it up in one turn – otherwise you will be vulnerable to counter-plays like Silence (and get beaten down by your own minion). And any deck with Dirty Rat could really hurt you too. Several Mage Secrets could wreck the combo.

    Terrible Arena card, or if you are Discovering or randomly drawing a Warlock spell (best case: a Rogue will steal it). I’m going to say that the card is some dev’s half-baked, let’s-throw-it-in, wild-and-crazy-idea card that is a terrible waste of a Warlock epic card. My rating is 100 Dust.

      I don’t know man if let’s say it is paired with a card like Bomb squad(and thus gaining a 5 damage on an enemy and avoiding a 5 damage on yourself(while at the same time giving the burden of that penalty to your opponent), or an emerad hive queen .etc there are many cards that can hinder an opponents gameplay and rythm…it is not a great card but depending on what cards will be released this expansion it might end up seeing a lot of use.

          But I kind of agree with my imitator – probably any Tier 1-2-3 net deck will consistently beat any combo deck based around this card.

      Or just give your opponent a doomsayer for a 2 card 5 mana board clear. Paladins play equality consencrate and mages play doomsayer frost nova so warlock can get away with playing a 5 mana board wipe

        but the thing is, like this card feels like it could do so much more than that … and yet when you think about it there isn’t that much to do? There’s so little complexity to hearthstone and this constant use of doomsayer as a crutch (for making a card appear interesting) isn’t helping.

    This card can also occasionally come up with yogg-Saron, and give your opponent a yogg-Saron that casts spells for them. Which can be terrifying.

      Pretty sure this wouldn’t cast spell for the enemy and even if it would there’d not be much of a difference on the effect except if Yogg survives or if he’d cast spells that draw cards.

        Yogg getting stolen by Sylvannas is a living example, yogg would cast spells for the opponent, and other possible positive outcomes would be AoE, secrets, minion summoning cards and more.

    From the cards released, so far, this card only works with ticking abomination, doomsayer, and bomb squad. So for it to work it has to be in a combo deck.

        Yes, but it would be hard to kill he abomination the same turn you play and transfer it, so you would have to play it the turn before and then have your opponent ignore it (likely if your board is empty).
