    This is going to be the star of Warlock I think. Alextrazsa+Bloodmage Thalnos+2x this card+1x Soulfire is basically freeze mage, but in a class that gets to draw a card every turn and now has a hand size of 12. The real question I think will be how well can control lock handle pressure, and if you put in a dragon package, 2x Hellfire and 2x 5/5 Hellfire dragon should more or less do the trick. Yikes.

    Ok I’m surprised but I think dragon warlock might actually be a thing, extra damage for cost AND lifesteal, easily 5 stars

    Dragon Warlocks or Warlocks with a few dragons lying around are getting a better version fo Eviscerate of all things. Note that you don’t have to be a Dragon Warlock, as you can have a few legendary Dragons such as an Alexstrasza and a Ysera for example as Control Warlock and it could do the same amount of work as you wanted it to be. And same for someone like Zoo or Aggro Warlock. 5 Stars.

    Eviscerate but with dragons as the condition, and the upside of lifesteal. Slower warlock decks have been in desperate need of healing ever since the Spellstone rotated, and this certainly helps. The flexibility of being able to go face is also appreciated. This plus the other dragon revealed for Warlock gives hope to a slower, dragon-based deck, like Handlock or maybe even Controllock. Seems pretty good.

    Yup I’m thinking possibly a dragon Handlock will make an appearance with a card like this take into account the utility cards for dragons that are going to be around till rotation firetree give you a spell if holding a dragon Handlock LOVES cards that replaces themselves in the hand of course there is one card that seems to have been forgotten but current warlock tactics support it’s use. Swamp Dragon Egg current warlock runs few egg based cards due to using cards that sacrifice it to do other stuff like generate Lackeys or buff board. Granted that’s done with eggs that add board presence but considering this puts a dragon in hand which meets the requirements for 2 new warlock cards the dragon egg might make a comeback.

    Warlocks needs many more dragons for this thing to work, so hopefully for them we get a metric ton if neutral dragons.

    We are finally getting a combined heal/removal spell for Warlocks. It requires building around dragons but i still think this is very good and it could bring back Control Warlock.

    In before Warlock (and neutral) gets a couple of good cheap dragons and Zoolock is busted again.. I feel like this should only deal damage to minions, it doesn’t fit the Warlock theme to deal face damage especially if the spell has no real negative downside to it like Soulfire does. Weird. But it’s a good solid 4/5 card and I hope this pushes control Warlock to better direction.

    With this card and the 5 mana 5/5 dragon, control warlock could be a thing again.
    This card is not like the spellstone, in a meta full of dragon is not crazy to that lots of warlocks deck will use this card

    Wow, it *almost* tops eviscerate, but is less reliable… More control… Great card though.

    More face damage. Very healthly and balance. Goodjob Blizzard.

      It is obviously ment more as control tool, but sure, it has additional bonus of being able to target face. In either way, it is much better and cheaper Shadowbolt.

      I mean, you can play it as a 2 damage for 2 mana… which is terrible. Or you have to put Dragons into your deck, which is not something that Zoo will do probably. And in slower decks, face damage is not that scary.
