    Should this end with
    “Equal to the amount of cards in your hand”
    To be more consistent with other cards

    The stats seem pretty bad, you’ll want at least 6 cards in hand for this to be “just ok”. And just ok is.. just ok. It’s nice that it always summons a taunt, but -3/-3 compared to Astromancer is pretty unflattering. There’s surprisingly few cards in standard that use the Demon tag, either.

    So looks like hand dragon lock will be a thing this expansion with demons summoned by odd means.

    So you could argue otherwise that you want to use this with Vladris, but I’d say is just as good without it, or if your too late to play it and you just need a Demon Equal to your Hand size. And you need at least 5 Cards to be effective enough to use it since you’ll gain at the very least a +1/+1. I can see Controlocks out there averaging around 8 cards when they played this card, so to them it’s a 6 mana 10/10 body for them. Yes, a 6 Mana 2/2 is Hhorrendouse, but it’s just forcing you to play Handlock or Controlock. Even mid-range lock from time to time as well. Hearthstone learned their lesson with its counterpart; Spiteful Summoner and Astromancer, so if Mage can do it, why not Warlock? I think 4 stars is reasonable enough, just becuase Astromancer was a 7 Mana 5/5, and for 1 less Mana, your losing -3/-3 in Stats, but gain a Demon Tribe that also has Taunt, and Warlocks are giving it enough praise as it is as well. Otherwise we would have been Critical with this card and say that it was Trash, or we would say that it’s just a later version of Twilight Drake.

    So 10 cards = 10/10? Or 5/5?

      11 cards is a 11/11 demon, ridiculous but possible especially now that lock hand cap can be 12.
