    I think you might actually be able to steal your opponent’s HP if you double up the battlecry. Not sure if it works, but it might. Probably way too meme to be a reliable combo, but since this card is cheap Rogue can pull it off fairly easily with Spirit of the Shark.

      it depends on how many times it will work your next turn….if 2 it is useless…if 1 it can be one of the best cards for rogue

        Well, I don’t really know how it is going to work. If we assume the Hero Power will be swapped twice, then yes, this likely won’t make any difference. But, if for any reason, this effect only takes place once, we might have a chance here.

    yeee-aaahh.. quite a pretty troll card. The only way this can be useful is if your up against an advance Hero power, and even then it’s kinda pushing it to pay an extra 2 mana just to use your opponent’s Hero power for 1 turn. This feels more like an MTG Card then a Hearthstone card, and although you can try to compare them in between, I still feel like Grizzled Wizard just barely could do something.

    If it was Reworked for a 3 Mana 2/5 and if it was “until it dies” then sure, it would have easily been 4 stars, but for 1 turn means that it’s a 4 Mana “Use an Advanced Hero Power for 1 turn”. Now, to give some credit, if you are fighting against let’s say, quest priest, Hagathta or even Galakrond Shaman, then sure, he did his job. But that’s still quite a stretch for what Grizzled wizard has to pull off, and I think it’s a bit too unrealistic for Grizzled Wizard to constantly keep finding ways to pull it off. At best, I would say that it’s 3 Stars, but I’m giving it 2. It’s just too inconstant for 1 turn of using your Hero Power, even if it’s an advanced Hero Power.

    A lot of weird cards this expansion, not complaining though

    Even if Quest/Galakrond decks are everywhere this still seems underwhelming, you can’t capitalize on their HP the same way they can, and stopping their HP for a turn doesn’t really win you the game.

    for wild
    could use this
    play a minnion that makes your hp become summon a 1/1 murloc or use sir fingleton to replace an opponets hp ruining their game play

    Food for thought: Grizzled Wizard -> Shadowstep -> Grizzled Wizard

    Why are always the crappy, exotic, non usable cards epics???!!!

      So that they take up the the epic cards, so there are fewer good epic cards, so you are less likely to need to craft epic cards for your decks, so ultimately this means you save on dust.

    This…. This is practically genious depending on what going against can interfere with decks like quest shaman and could also give use of opponents galakrond power rogue using Tess could steal priest galakrond power and get a priest minion. Warlock could give power to rogue galakrond and get a lackey. So a few classes might use this would also be dangerous to a quest rogue opponent getting the weapon.
