Please buff him. Like even just to 6/6 and maybe he will see play again.
So this guy is 5/5 9 mana creature that draws a random card from your deck and reduces the cost to zero. On the other hand we have Supreme Atromancer 3/3 for 9 that adds 13 damage to the board and deals 4 damage instantly. And it's not unique. Bullshit.

What if you draw the Lesser Ward as your next card, lol? This is not a good behavior for a unique legendary card.

P.S. Blue creatures are actually known for this: Summon a X/X creature, which costs 2X magicka and does some random stuff upon summoning. After that you are left with weak creature that dies the next turn. I'm looking at you, Shocking Wamasu, or Fate Weaver, or Ash Servant, or whoever else follows the same pattern.
What about changing this one to something like: "Summon: Reveal three random cards from your deck. Choose one to reduce its cost to 0. Draw a card."

This way it could be useful at least in control/combos. However, should keep its cost at 9 or rise it, so you can only play it late in the game. If necessary increase the stats (maybe 6/6 or 7/7).

That's how you make a broken card.
I only played against Nahkriin once, and my opponent, playing him, drew a... Shrieking Harpy with him :-D
