    This card is amazing in tempo rogue. A lot of times you would get into the late game and run out of steam. This solves one of rogues main problems, card draw. And with the addition of corridor creeper, this deck gets even stronger. A 5/5 minion as a combo activator!

    Nothing crazy here about stats and effect.
    Drawing two cards is worth two mana and a vanilla two drop has 3/2.
    But all that packed in a minion bas potential.
    Question is , can Rogue afford dropping a 3/2 body on turn 4 or 5 ?
    Rogue is a tempo deck.
    My other question is how many activators for combo can a deck have.?
    Sometimes you will only have 1 backstab or firefly and forced to decide whether you will use it for this or a Vilespine or to gain tempo in early game with a SI7.
    In miracle its easier since you run coins and you compensate for the coins by drawing while at the same time Giants get cheaper.Still though im not sure if that is fast enough against Keleseth Rogue , up coming Zoolock or even Hunter.
    Great combo withyhe Nerubian lile 4/4 guy.

    It’s a peculiar one – it’s not a million miles away from Xaril, Poisoned Mind… and that’s a card that very rarely sees play even though it’s ideally suited to Miracle Rogue.

    The big advantage here is that it only draw cards you’ve put in your deck – and you can weight the odds of getting what you need more in your favour by having fewer minions… which is pretty much in the nature of Miracle Rogue. Should help avoid those nasty situations where you’ve got a hand full of cheap cards but no Auctioneer. So in Miracle you might run one of these guys.

    However, although it’s a bad tempo play, one problem with heavily minion focused decks is that they can run out of steam – so I suspect this might be more akin to Arcane Intellect for Keleseth Rogue, even providing a potential comeback from a big board clear – especially if you Shadowstep it.

      I know right? Rogue used to be my favorite class but i hate playing against them, i think i like the underdogs and Rogue is no underdog no more.

    Card draw for Rogue? Me likey.

    Generally you want a cheap combo activator (Coin, Backstab, Prep) to get full value out of this guy. 2-cards for 4 is pretty good, tack on a 2-mana body and it’s great (2-mana Draw 2). Not much to say; this guy’s good.

    Funny how the Elvin minstrel cycles cards… Menstrual Cycle… Me and my 8th grade sense of humor found that amusing.

      Lol. Nice catch.

      With the way the designers have been playing on words with a lot of cards in this expansion, I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s what they were going for.

    Hmm I don’t think it’ll see tonnes of play as it has 2 drop stats for 4 mana, even though it draws you two minions it ain’t great for tempo tbh.

      It’s not a tempo card. It’s control. Rogue has ice block and now arcane intellect. Control rogue is going to clean up this season.

    I could see this played in a minion heavy deck (keleseth rogue) or in a deck that wants to always pull key minions (vilespine, scalebane maybe?). I do like that it is combo oriented, will definitely be playing around with it, even though I haven’t played too much rogue personally.

    For sure tempo rogue will like this. Not so sure about miracle but it might.

          Playing Keleseth on turn 4 or 5 doesn’t offer that much since tempo rouge usually have much better plays on those key turns.

            Double prince this, 5/4 draw two minons is never bad. It adds more fuel, is it a great body? Obviously not, but it’s a good catch up cars should you loose the board. A one of in temp is not a bad idea.
