    Let me tell you something guys: this card is very strong and renounce warlock will be a meta deck.

    The only practical use I see for this card is for a control warlock deck waiting until near fatigue to replace spells that were never used such as shadow flame and your now worthless hero power (since you don’t want to tap when your deck is empty) with new cards/ hero power that could potentially be useful. However I feel like Elise Starseeker does this better by putting 1 extra card in your deck (golden monkey) so you have 31 cards to draw (fatigue 1 turn later) and by giving you legendaries which have a higher change to be useful then random class cards.

    That being said it would be fun to play against a friend where both of you put 30 warlock cards in your deck and mulligan for this card.

    It just replaces the class cards not the neutral minions in the deck.

      Good catch I didn’t notice that, that makes this card fairly viable, just fill your deck with a solid curve of neutrals. I figure about 12 to 14 class cards would be right to make this work.

        Evwn better make ur deck perfect curve and even litle bit agressive with low cost warrlock cards and in late game drop that and swich to more midrange-ish more warrlock cards-better for my point of viev

    I can’t wait to turn my well-thought out Warlock deck into a Druid with 15 moonfires! At least they cost 1 less!

    honestly this kind of gives you board control and is op. imagine you are a warlock used spells to clear the board and to trade minions you have two or three left over you use this card late game. BAM you turn into a warrior you have execute for 0 mana and other spells now you have an answer to those late game elise starseeker decks and wont fatigue as fast. so imo its a OP card in the right hands but always of course pray rng gives you the right things lol.

    What if you take Sacrificial Pact? Can you still get mage or paladin? they have no 0 mana cards =D

      For first this card doesnt change your cards into cards with exact same cost, effect is just random

      For second, both paladin and mage are getting 0 cost spell this expansion

    Imo this will be played in ANY standard warlock deck as a fail-safe.

    oO wow, this is soo random but potentially op because of the cost reduction.

      I agree I’m not sure if it is good or not just that it is one of the most interesting cards in hearthstone

    Soo whats happening here is that you pay 2 mana to switch to another class (not entirely sure if all the cards will be from the same class) then they get a mana reduction. Maybe its just me but this seems kinda strong, you can just play some of the op warlock 1 drops then switch out a lot of your deck and, all most all of the cards will be really good value. The only down sides I see is you wont have much synergy and your curve wont be amazing but to me it seems worth it especially if the game slows down.

      amagine you use this and 5 tirions for 7 mana get put in your deck

        My thoughts exactly, Nightfall

    I don’t understand.
    Is it a random Class ?
    If you don’t what to play warlock don’t warlock. I don’t see the point.

      maybe you want to play a strong early game deck and when you dont need your early game warlock cards anymore you use this
