    I can certainly see this getting the Galakrond/Alex nerf soon.

    Is there a world where you would never include this card in a Tickatus-deck? Seems pretty good

    Holy CRAP Control is getting heavy this expansion.

    This is essentially a resurrection spell, except that it’ll most likely fill your entire board. With beefy minions, too. AND it resurrects spells in a way too, by returning them all to your hand and making them cost zero.

    So this card basically destroys all enemy minions and then resurrects a full board of minions for you. Man, the power levels in Hearthstone are going insane.

    99.99% sure this will get nerfed.

    Good to see an Old Friend again, come to Hearthstone.

    Y’Shaarj was my Favourite Old God out of the Four, and if Corrupted Cards are valuable enough in the Meta, our Friendship will be like Old Times again. Pun Intended.

    10/10 would gorge my hatred again.

    Overall, Y’Sharrj is more of a Last Resort Value type Card, for when you need to that extra push left to win the game. However, with that being said, I don’t think Hearthstone will print out any more Corrupted Cards after this Expansion (more or less likely) so if a lot of these Corrupted cards happen to be not as worth using even for it’s corrupted Value, then Y’Shaarj is in deep trouble.

    3 Stars for now.

    Corrupt control shaman has me quite excited, the rating of this card obviously depends on how good the corrupt cards but I’ll be positive and feel this will find a place in at least one good deck over time. 5 stars, very powerful.

    Hard to rate without seeing all the corrupt cards. I feel as though this card is the one that misses the mark the most on capturing the spirit of the original card.
