    Also a nice card for warlock, especially in wild. Can pull out some early 8+ cost cards.

    So happy that my favourite Warcraft character has finally a playable card !

    One thing though, I can’t craft him in golden, is it normal ? Or will they add his golden version in the next tavern pass ?

    It’s a very interesting card that has many utilities with otk’s or just slowing down the enemy. It’s a very unique card and will definitely find a home somewhere, 4 stars.

    The main use for this is in a deck with a lot of minion buffing.

    Take a Paladin who has buffed some Silver Hand Recruit to a 10/10 lifegaining divine-shielded monster.

    You return that to his hand.

    Even if he drops his best creature in return you are still ahead of the game.

    Think about the card efficiency.

    You just spent one card to neutralize a four card investment.

    Pretty sweet.

    Shadow Hunter Voljin is actually a good card. It’s not entirely Dirty Rat, but it can feel like you have it’s power, though.

    I only wish it was a 3 mana 2/3 instead, so that way you have a lot more Variety with what you can pull off a lot more imagination with the power of Voljin, but I can understand why it’s 5 mana, and it’s for BIg Decks for when you swap your decks.

    Still, though I’m giving Voljin even 5 stars, for how Whenever I see a card that needs to be filled out, I can just put in Voljin. I can see a Dirty Rat, for when you can Snipe out a Card that’s a strong minion and replace it with a weak one, or to destroy a core card that they had.

    – looks strong, another high-roll card, reminds me barnes..
    – works on both sides of the board, hand disruption, has dirty rat like effect.
    – i think this will see a lot of play, can break combos or remove a tirion or other block on your sight.,
    – stats worth 3 mana, so 5 mana seems correct or even too low since the effect can be really game deciding.

    A very interesting card, I think it could be a big deal in the right meta, especially one with a lot of mana cheating.

    Another tech cards, obviously good to trade 1 annoying minion for another (could be good or bad).
    but if the owner doesn’t have any other, I’m very sure it will still return the minion.

    I wonder if it can choose itself. If it does then this is a 5 mana Malygos which is really sick

    Guessing it does nothing if the owner’s not holding a minion.

      Tried it out. You will return the targeted minion to the owners hand and if he has no minion left, this minion will get returned only.

      So it’s a 5 mana kidnapper without “combo”.
