    Couldn’t this card possibly draw 4 cards? (If you draw something like a candle or something copied from Shadow of Death or Fellhound Portal, it doesn’t count as a draw right? so it auto draws the next card on top of your deck for you to replace itself?)

    Drawing the Bombs OMEGALUL.
    The card itself is really good, would be amazing if faldorei was in standard. All I can think of right now would Waxadred rogue, which is a deck that really is becoming a possibility. Thanks to the tutor card for deathrattle which has been revealed earlier, it seems like waxadred rogue might actually beome some sort of control breaker like Undatakah paladin was when RoS came out. I don’t know if it will be good enough to see play outside of that matchup (my bet is on no), but this card really helps it.

    So this is used in combination for some sort of Cards that you copied, and then playing Stowaway. So it’s like a 5 Mana 4/4 Draw 2 Cards that you copied for Rouge. This could also be used to get rid of those pesky 1/1s that Bad Luck Albatross will give you as well. Much like other, I didn’t quite understand this card for a while, because I was thinking in terms of your starting hand, but honestly, It was my fault for not understanding it properly. You could have 1 copy of this for Highlander Control Rouge and just call it day, or you could even have 2 of them for when you’re trying to make some sort of Copy Rouge Deck, Like Waxadred Rouge or Kronx Rouge for example. The only true concern is when you’re facing up against rouge and she has Flik Skyshiv, to pretty much Delete your deck idea, but other than 1 terrifying threat that you’ll see every once in a way, unless a lot of players a suddenly playing rouge, This Card is 5 Stars for when your playing Copy Rouge, but otherwise, you’ll just use it to counter something like Bad Luck Albatross. which at least is about 4 Stars. But I’m giving it 5.

    1.after playing Espionage you will draw 2 1cost cards guaranteed…but it is only for Thief Rogue
    2.after shuffling Waxadred’s shadow you draw a shadow which draws another card after that…if having 2 shadows in the deck it is draw of 2 specific cards + 2 random ones from your deck…it is veryyy good…and there are some good cards for having many Waxadreds…new Dragon Breeder,Baleful Banker,Shadow of Death,Necrium Blade,Necrium Vial,Togwaggles Schemes,even Faceless Manipulator, which can help also(but no need))
    3. 1 and 2 are the best ways to use this card…portals have no potencial at all
    but arent those slow for ALWAYS AGRO meta??? 😀

      I was going to say I was disappointed because at first glance I only thought about Academic Espionage and I thought that was boring, but then I remembered about Waxadred and other cards that can make it crazy. Honestly, when they released Rise of Shadows I tried a sort of meme deck that was about those Rush portals you can create. It was just bad overall, because it was too slow and the rewards weren’t enough. But with this, it might make my (still meme, of course) deck better. When you think about, 5 mana 4/4 summon two 2/2 demons with Rush AND draw two cards sounds pretty insane. Requires you to play a Portal demon first, of course, but doesn’t it sound worth it ?

      Not to mention, this is one of those cards that might have HUGE potential in the expansions to come depending on what other Shuffle effects we might get, which has been one of Rogue’s perks and they’ve been using a bit in the last expansions. I like it, it feels more refreshing than Uldum did.

    I love how many new mechanics this set explores! Cards like these are a pleasure to see and try out.

    3 stars, I think it has great potential. The only thing holding me back from giving it 4 stars is that it’s not a pirate.

    Very nice design with some potential. Comunity looking for crazy combos.

    Is it just me, or does this look like a community custom card? It’s just seems off… I can’t put my finger on why.

      Probably because of the long description. This is as concise as it can get for the effect but it still feels like a word salad.

        They could have probably wrote “Draw 2 cards that didn’t start in your deck”. It’s more concise and the “that didn’t start in your deck” phrase was used in Princess Talanji already, but inconsistency in card text is nothing new to hearthstone

    This is likely to see play ignore nay Sayers. First off it can pull cards from espionage specifically so would get 2 1 costs added to hand. Next it can also specifically pull copies of card targeted by scheme if used one early. Then we come to drawing shadow and triggering which would then let us draw a regular card. After that we have waxdred working on similar principle. And then we get to the irritating ones this can pull bombs from deck when you choose to interrupt the blastmaster drops. And most recently this also works for rogue as a counter card to the unlucky albatross drawing the 2 1/1 minions from deck.

    Not sure if missed any but that’s all the uses I know of off top of my head in standard. The only drawback is you don’t wanna play this after Hakkar dies.

    A Waxadred+Shadow of Death shenanigans deck is really starting to come together. Will probably be painfully weak to aggro, though.

      With the cards reveald it is not looking Like a aggro meta. (hopefully) evolve shaman, murloc shaman wont make it either. only really tempo rogue could survive.

    Unless there is some awesome synergy shuffle synergy printed this card will never see competitive play

      Combos with scheme and espionage, man this plus shark totem mean you could get 4 1-cost class cards.
