    Missing Info?

    Mechanics: Battlecry, Summon (along with Copy Minion, which is already there)

    almost a faceless manipulator. But you have to play a control deck since you can’t copy opponents minions but it does have tuant and costs 1 less. Obiously the big draw back is it can’t copy abilities.

    Earth Shock says hello. Not that anyone plays it…

      Earth shock doesn’t change faceless, so Prehaps this guy is immune to silence as well.

        Not the case faceless becomes a new minion this just gains stats

        That being said silence nerfs may be coming

          Well this minion doesn’t “gains” the stats it copies them

    This has potential in a deck utilizing Ancient Watcher, Eerie Statue and the likes (e.g. silence druid).

    It makes all the sense to copy the current one, that’s how the mechanism in HS works.
    You can get the best example out of Faceless manipulator like in above comments.

    Actually it’s pretty good synergy with Bran PogChamp

      Its “copy” not “gain” so no, brann wont work

    It has taunt though. And it’s cheaper. Altough I agree it would be better if it could copy stats from any minion.

    Would this work well with power overwhelming? Give a 2/3 minion +4/+4 and make Shambler a 6/7 taunt? It will work like that wont it?

      I think so

      That actually sounds pretty good. Also I could see this card being absolutely devastating in Handlock since copying a Twilight Drake or some Giant are both fantastic.

    I guess this could be in the Reno lock. Works great with high health creature’s and molten giants. And don’t forget it has a taunt. But. Argus gives 2 minions taunt and +1+1 and he’s in the 4 bracket. So I’m not sure if its good to have so many tech cards in one bracket.

    The only negative part of this is friendly minion, will be fantastic in handlock with molten giants and such.

      oh no, 10 health, dont worry… MOLTEN GIANT MOLTEN GIANT TAUNT UP FACELESS SHAMBLER FACELESS SHAMBLER, in other words… 4 8/8 taunts and a 2/3

        then a mage hits you with 2 fire balls in the face or one pyro blast lol.

        Actually if you had Emperor reduce the shamblers and use a Defender of Argus you end up with 4 9/9 taunts and a 2/3

    Is it just me or is all the epics getting worst each day?

    This card is only good if your ahead of the board……

    If you have nothing on board and turn 4 , your going to play this card?!

    It’s effect should be copy any minion attack + health instead of just your own , then it will be a consider card

    Faceless Manipulator seems more reliable

    • Kevinloks1937
      March 23, 2016 at 7:51 pm

      Exactly , also not sure about this , but copying a minion health and attack , is it copying the current or the original?

      • TomBombadil

        Current, like how Void Terror eats temporary buffs. Which means this *might* be interesting in zoo with Power Overwhelming and things like Dark Iron Dwarf because the +2 becomes permanent. After all, Deathrattle/Egg/Demon zoo won’t be in standard, so we might see a return of the real buff-minion-heavy style, and this could get some value out of that.

        While the big plays with Giants are flashy, this might have a better home with more simple value plays.

        It might be the current

        I’m sure current

        Another downside to it is if it gets silenced since it will turn to a miserable 1/1. I don’t believe it will see much play, possibly in warlock but…. meh…..

        Always the current, never the original unless specified

      • Nightfall
        March 24, 2016 at 5:52 am

        I think current
