    People are saying how you need to invoke before playing this, but honestly, just playing it on three is alright. It’s the front half of a restless mummy. Still pretty good. Obviously you’re supposed to hit it with Galakrond then get copies, but it’s not too bad if you have to play it early.

    Remember that Warrior Galagrond draws cards and give them +4/+4. In other words this becomes a 3 mana summon three 7/6 dragons with rush and that’s insane to say the least. Akali the Rhino can also give this card +5/+5… I wouldn’t underestimate it, in invoke warrior decks this card is an auto include because it’s simply powerful by itself as well as Galagrond. 5/5

      I wouldn’t count with Akali, but with galakrond is so powerfull. New invoke/tempo warrior looks srtong even with the new anti-armor tech

    The card has leaked earlier – it was now officially revealed, so I just updated it with official English version and moved back to the front page.

    It’s good if you have invoke on turn 3 but that’s likely not going to happen, though not so bad on turn 5 or 6 either. 5/10

      You should obviously aim to use this with the Galagrond +4/+4 buff.. This is not an early game card by any means, it gets massive value with Galagrond and maybe even Akali. That makes it potentially 3 mana summon three 7/6 rush dragons, no idea why you’d rate this card with only 2.5 stars :S

    Pretty crazy, but probably impossible to get out before like turn 6, even then it’s a very high power level card.

      You’ve forgotten what Warrior Galagrond does.. This card literally has the invoke mechanic so obviously you wanna use it with the +4/+4 buff which makes this card insane.

      And we get dragon breeder too 2 mana each so for 10 mana yo get 4 copies in hand + another dragon breeder that will give another in hand so a hypothetical board fill for the next 2 turns, Akali makes him really scary though, given stat triplication. Thank goodness they don’t have taunt.

    We still have to see the Invoke cards for Warrior – currently there’s nothing that will get this out on curve, but let’s be real even if you’re dropping this T7 it’s a hell of a card. Like Restless Mummy, but better, and cheaper so that you can weave in a Hero Power or whatever.

    Synergizes with Warrior’s Galakrond’s battlecry, too.

    And the Devastation that gives your board +2/+2, you can play both cards on the same turn even.

    You know with a card like this dragon rush will be interesting add in Akali and you have something nasty technically giving 5 potential draws at this card coming out and summoning 2 more big rush minions. And if galakrond draws Akali all the better.

    Rember Omega Agent for Warlock? Image having a cheaper and better version of it. Pretty much. 5 Stars.

    So basically if you invoked twice, this becomes 1 mana cheaper Restless mummy with additional 3/2 rush body. And we all know how good Restless mummy is.

      Also, this with Galakrond’s battlecry can turn out to be 3x 7/6 with rush. That’s scary.

        And if you play Galakrond on turn 10 and draw this, you can play both on the same turn. Something is going to get nerfed…

    Hmm… pretty strong and good for agro/control. Only problem is the double invoke, we don’t know if warrior galakrond will get any good (invoke) cards…

      I agree, hopefully if we do get some invoke cards for warrior, if there dragons we then Galakrond dragon Warrior could be a thing!
