    *Hearthstone cards playing Uno*
    Fungalmancer: *Plays reverse card a little to vigorously*

    Compare this to Fungalmancer, except considerably worse. You don’t get to pick your targets like Fungalmancer and this a deathrattle, not a battlecry. Just play Fungalmancer instead, this card is worth 20 dust. 1/5

        Actually, thanks for pointing that out. I completely forgot that Fungalmancer was rotating. I’ll up my rating to 2/5 because there is no longer a better card in standard. Card is still pretty bad in my opinion.

    Eager Underling is a good sacrifice target with something like EVIL Genius or better yet Grim Rally, and in a token based Zoo Warlock deck it could be good enough to see some serious play. Comparisons to Funglemancer are obvious, and if the format is generally slower, a slower version of the same card should still be good in the deck.

    Granted, its low stats and tempo could also as easily make it as unappealing as possible for a deck as hungry for decent but cheap minions as possible.

    Really, it’s up in the air on this card.

    I actually like this card, It reminds of a Mini- Possessed Lackey Expect it’s a lot worse then Lackey.

    The big Problem is that I think you need either to become a Biglock, a Handlock or a Healthwork where you have a lot of your late game cards to have high health.

    MAYBE Zoolock would use this here as there as just 1 copy of this card, since they like filling thier board with minions and then they can just destory it with dark pact– Wait a minute. *Resreaches Dark pact*

    *It’s from Kobolds and Catacombs*

    Ooh… Well, now. :s

      the plan is to destroy it with grim rally (or evil genius), but i’m not quite sure that’s enough sac outlets, nor enough eggs…

    No Cube of course. Unless Deathrattle Warlock becomes a thing, this is too weak, too slow and too unreliable.

    Poor effect only use is for buffing eggs.

    This is one of worst cards in set so far. Funglemancer is BoK battlecry with 2/2 body. This useless crap has to die to make 4/4 worth of stats and you need 2 cards to make it. So you need to spend at least 5 mana and two cards to get +4/4 stats on random minions. This is so stupid. And you cant just play it as 4 mana 2/2 on board, because in most cases it would be just 4 mana 2/2.

    1/5, with that new legendary both trash.

    Well it says 2 friendly minions not 2 OTHER friendly minions. This should mean that if you have one minion on board this would buff himself and the friendly minion. So cheeper and much easyer to hit with its buff.
    Overall its 6/6 worth of stats for 4 mana. This is insane tempo value. I really liked in the ungoro frozenthrone cobolds braul how aggro lock would just insta win you games by turn 5 without reliable board clears and how cards like wondrous bard shined with the random token generators. And bear in mind that the lackeys can give you tons of tempo despite being 1/1s.
    So if you spent your turn 1 and 2 generating lackeys yout turn 3 with 3 lackeys in hand, considering each lackeys gives you 2 mana worth of stats, hopefully you get the tempo ones, you have turn three 6 mana worth of value and on turn 4 you get 4 mana 6/6 is not bad. I mean your board must survive until than. But like the blackiron drawrf 4/4 that gives a friendly minion 2 attack for one turn was used and is still usable for aggro.
    It is not completely broken, since having a board full of 1/1s is easy to remove. And most likely a yeti will be able to trade 2 for one in most cases. But this is the card that will start an archetype, None of those dr. Morrigan, Hireek, Jeklcks. Or e/w locks got. Solarium is good in a deck full of little minions so we can see this shine this expansion. And you will most likely have to choose solarium or rafaam.

      This says deathrattle, not battlecry. And either way, battlecry efect such as buffs never works on that minion, who has the ability.

            Lol. It was a forceful, mostly-well-thought-out response – you shouldn’t feel too bad.

    I would rather just use Mad Hatter, tbh.

    So, this obviously looks like Fungalmancer, with the difference that he costs less mana, you can’t choose which minions get his buffs, and the buffs trigger on Deathrattle instead of as Battlecry.

    If you want to trigger his buffs right away (and you do), then this is the perfect target for Grim Rally. Void Terror also works, but that’s a 7-mana combo, which makes it a lot slower than turn 5 Fungalmancer.

    Eager Underling + Grim Rally is actually a more powerful turn 5 than Fungalmancer (at the cost of 2 cards). The problem is that it’s also a much more unreliable turn 5 than Fungalmancer, since you need to have both cards in your hand.

    What about just playing this guy, and trading him away on your next turn? There’s a good chance your board will be hit by AoE like Consecration, killing your guys so that there are no minions left to get the buffs (whereas Fungalmancer helps protect your minions from AoE). Or your opponent can kill your other minions first and kill this one last, wasting his buffs. Or maybe the opposing control or combo deck doesn’t play any minions to trade this guy into.

    A lot more unreliable than Fungalmancer then, but I think this could still see play on account of how powerful the combo with Grim Rally is. 3/5

    It is a new and better Fungalmancer for (Egg) Zoo! I like it…
