    I don’t think the potential in this one should be seeked for the combos (at least not yet) which are meant for fun more than anything and possibly make the whole purpose of using Oakheart too redundant, as it will all depend on wether you’ll draw this everytime or not (no one keeps this in starting hand against aggro) but for:

    – thinning out + removing eventual earlygame tops in lategame, without destroying them like with Hemet;
    – adding board presence;
    – eventually bringing out key elements or very impactful minions (Voidlord, Rin The Last Disciple, Dragonhatcher (in specific builds), Murloc Warleader and Old-Murk Eye (in Anyfin builds; sure there is Finja, but this has a failproof Battlecry and will never mess up your second Anyfin), others I didn’t mention or which can be released in the future;

    All that the Recruit verb needs is some “Fishing” for Recruit, similarly to the Divine Shield, Demon and Murloc one.

    All these combos look really cool, but how reliable are they? And what deck does it fitt into? It costs 9 mana, so You gotta have an early game but early game screws with this card…

      I got a chance to look over all the cards, and the best one might be murlocs. Finja, Warleader are highrolls and 9 mana pull murlocs are reminiscent of anyfin can happen, just weaker.

    I think this is going to be Dr. 9 in a number of decks. Maybe even in Warlock.

    Think of this hypothetical situation: You play Oakheart, and then you pull out a Tar Creeper with 1 attack, Dragonrider with 2 attack, and Void Lord with 3 attack.

    Dragonrider activates and then pulls out a Sleepy Dragon or Ysera or a number of other high cost dragons. For 9 mana, you are getting 30 mana of extra value, and 14 (17 on enemy team)/44 in stats with a LOT of Taunt to protect the Dragonrider for it to get even MORE dragon value.

    I think there’s a lot of interesting combinations with this card, and could be a very powerful finisher in the right decks.

      EDIT: DragonHATCHER, not Dragonrider. Almost the same thing!

    Amazing, its like curator on drugs. You can get things like wickerflame, bolvar etc. for paladin

    I wonder whats the synergy with umbra, if it pulls umbra + 2 deathrattles, do the deathrattles trigger?

      Recruit checks the order in which they are brought on the field, they are not brought out “simultaneously”; the 3 Atk minion (Umbra) is the last one that gets played; as such, deathrattles brought alongside Umbra will not trigger.

    I don’t know. It may have potential, but I don’t think so. I just don’t know what you would be targeting. It would have to be something broken to warrant the use of this card.

      I could see you cheating out some powerful things. since it says 1,2,3 attack not cost you can really do some interesting stuff. like people have been saying, imagine having a voidlord in your deck as warlock, or any of the other powerful cards people will play with low attack but good value elsewhere.

      I like this card because it presents interesting deck building scenarios. makes you think about your deck and able to do interesting things with it. really fun concept

    First of all too slow.
    Second of all not enough impact on the board.

      Slow? sure, but I think there is a significant impact on the board if you recruit the right minions.

      Not enough impact on the board… Are you serious? It can summon 3 minions on top of a 5/5 body, not only that, but you can build a deck to make it 3 specific minions. Most obvious value pull, Tar Creeper/Lurker, Vulgar Homunculus, and Void Lord, is that not enough of an impact?

    I explain it better in this thread (http://www.hearthstonetopdecks.com/decks/oakheart-controlock-knc/), but this card has potential in controlock. The worst possible stats it can give me on turn 9 is 11/15 with a taunt and +3 attack during your opponent’s turn, which is pretty good and gets bad cards out of your deck. The best, of course, is 11/25 with 3 taunts, 1 which gains 3 attack during your opponents turn and another that summons 3 voidwalkers when it dies. Pretty good if you ask me, especially since it curves into Gul’dan

    I think this has real potential, i think the big thing that people are missing is that is can pull all your weak early cards out making your draws a lot better. The other thing is you could build a crazy board with this card. 1 attack armor smith, 2 attack dirty rat, 3 attack direhorn hatchling. There’s so many combos you could pull off like taunt druid or getting those understated minions with big effects. Its one of those cards that need to be tested a bunch of different ways but getting 4 cards for 1 is potentially really strong.

    You can recruit Silver Vanguard with this since it has 3 attack with an upside deathrattle of recruiting an 8 drop minion you can fill the 1 attack slot with Tar Creeper

    In my opinion this card is underrated. The only problem is its just not good enough to build a deck around and it doesn’t fit into any decks really.

      Maybe it is good enough to build a deck around? Kind of like a faster version of Curator?

    With 1 attack you can use this to drag a Tar Creeper or Tar Lurker or Tar Lord

    Best spitball I can give for this guy: drakarri Enchanter + Dragon Hatcher? Maybe? Possibly? Idk.

      I see him being used in a taunt druid deck with hadronox, tar creeper, and the new druid legendary minion.

    Sick card. Is he holding the new warrior legendary weapon?

    This could work well with Dragon Hatcher for 2 attack, and Silver Vanguard or even Voidlord for warlocks as 3 attack. Bolvar and Tar lord would be great minions with 1 attack to pull from your deck.

    Man these ratings… The fact that this card brings out 3 minions and its very specific (1 attack, 2 attack and 3 attack), with enough thougt put into it maybe some one could build an intresting deck out of this, one really valuable 3 attack minion is vicious fledgelinger, maybe this card + dragon hatcher? No? Atleast the fact that it works with dragon hatcher makes me happy!

    I don’t know why you guys rated this so poorly, sure its not 5 stars but definitely not one, i can’t see it yet but there is almost certain to have some kind of combo with this, it’s 1,2 and 3 ATTACK afterall, NOT MANA, NOR HEALTH
