    Ok, I have a few questions for the card.
    1) After you deal 3 damage to a minion, kill it, then kill another, will it’s battlecry go off on another adjacent minion?
    2) Do you get to pick which adjacent minion? It doesn’t specify in the card text.

    If (1) is right, then it’s 4/5, if both are right, then its 4.5 or 5/5

      If neither are right, it’s just fire elemental but deal 3-6 damage, so 3/5

    This is quite an op card. 6/3 is a very good stat line contrary to the popular believe.
    The effect is just bonkers, because as a baseline 6/3 deal 3 damage it is playable, but the effect can bounce to neighbors and back to deathrattle minions is crazy.
    The only reason, it is a lot worse is with the introduction of the dormant cards. Now the opponent can just separate neighboring minions.

    It was confirmed on Reddit somewhere that there’s a bug but The Lurker from Below will receive a beast tag.

    Could be a board wipe in quest shaman, and maybe it sees play in control.

      I think it will make 6 dmg the first time, and then just 3… if thats the case its not that good

    Fire Elemental with worse stats but the potential to clear Zoo boards ?!

    Thats one Horrible legendary.

    Good to see more cards that use positioning. Best case it’s a 3 damage enemy only board clear with a 6/3 body. Worst case it’s a a worse fire elemental.

    Not a particularly valuable Battlecry to double with quest shaman most of the time.

    First up awesome card I loved this boss since it required fishing skill to trigger it.

    So obvious option play this in quest shammy that’s what 9 dmg dealt 6 to a big minion and 3 to an adjacent for 8 Mana. Even without that this can pop off a few of the non targettable minions.

    Not that good but can help you clear out the board and synergises nice with spell shaman 3.5/5 stars maybe 4 stars card

    So if all enemy minion are 3 health or below it’s a board clear?

    What does it mean by ‘an adjacent minions’? Is it an adjacent minion or is it adjacent minions??

      It works like rolling fire ball kinda, as in it will just keep going on the that directions until a minion doesn’t die

        I don’t think so, it says if THAT minion dies so it will only repeat if the trageted minion dies not minions in general

        P.s. it says an adjacent minion so it does deal damage to both only one

          That isn’t how it works, if it kills a minion with its battlecry, it repeats the battlecry on a random adjacent minion, so it can wie a whole board of minions under three health. that is great against agro decks. so more like 5/5

            Edit: Wipe a whole Board

            1. On the card it doesn’t imply that it will repeat if a minion not targeted by this dies.

            2. But if it does then its still only gonna wipe 1/2 of a board because it can only go left or right like rolling fire ball

            3. But if I’m wrong about those 2 things then it’s pretty good but it’s gonna be difficult to make this consistently work because your gonna have to get the opponents minions under 3 health at 6 mana which doesn’t seem easy unless a card comes out to synergies with this like pint size potion did.

          I watched the original reveal stream you would know that it works as a board wipe and it works as a board wipe.
