    Could be alot better if it just said discorver a Mech and Dragon and Pirate. (Means you get three cards)

    This is like a better version of Cobalt Spellkin – a 5 mana 3/5 with no immediate effect, but generates you some resources.

    Control Warrior would probably run this for the card draw, but that’s about the only deck that’d use this card. A 5 mana do nothing is probably way too slow by today’s standards for aggro, even if it refills your hand.

      It can’t really be compared to cobalt spellkin. Drawing cards is very different from generating cards, and drawing three four 5 mana with a body is, at least, above average. Also, historically, drawing specific cards is stronger than randoms.
      That being said, I agree with you that this card wouldn’t fit well in the meta from where warrior stands today.

    Not sure why this is Warrior specifically, and the other Warrior legendary is REALLY disappointing, but this isn’t looking so bad. 4/5 if there’s a Mech that warrior actually wants to run

      Hecklebot is good in CW. Big taunt in Nzoth and disrupt enemy potential wincon, esp with many 10 mana wincon in this expansion

    If his voiceline isn’t “The Circus Ring is for performers only” I will be very disappointed.

    Menagerie huh? That might actually be oddly refreshing.

    Card draw is always good. If the deck is good enough then this card will be an essential part of it, gotta see. Menagerie and handbuffing hasn’t really worked well before so I don’t have high hopes though. 3 stars

    It had me thinking for a second, but you basically use this for Bomb Pirate Warrior. You Draw a Mech (So, Skybarage or Clockwork Goblin), a Dragon (Usually Normal Alexstraza, though it would be interesting for a Highlander version) or Mad Deathwing, and Pirate is basically any pirate.

    I can see Whatley being used pretty often, even without the Tempo Pirate Version. Since Galakrond will be gone, Warriors need another way to Draw their Specifics, so Whatlet is their next choice. Even it’s a 5 Mana 3/5, Draw 2 Specific Cards, they will still use it because it’s that important for them.

    4 Stars.
