Looks promising. Waiting to see if more cards to be released will synergize with this.
This card can make some crazy sh*t. I am scared.

If this card's effect wants random....

I love both the design and the amazing art. It was the first card I was planning to get immediately after the release.
The summon ability made me hope for a lot more grave-associated cards coming out of the set.
However, as it turns out, soul tear is the only card that synergize with it.
There should be more cards that can pull back lots of creatures from the discard pile, otherwise, his summon ability won't have much of the meaning.

There are other cards that draw from the discard pile: Falkreath Defiler, Militant Chieftain, Blood Magic Lord/Raise Dead, Black Worm Necromancer, Journey to Sovngarde, Gravesinger and Alduin.

I know all these but these are not exactly what I was talking about. Hope more grave interactions will come in the future sets.

first time playing since last fall, except clearing one map on the brotherhood shortly after it came out. I got it on tablet when that hit mobile, and so I loaded up and had some free packs and legendaries or whatever. Got this as the free legend, then got another in the first few packs I opened. I bought some sort of cheap skyrim packs bundle, I think he was in those new packs. So I have 2 of them now. Kinda late game, but they looked pretty powerful. They motivated me to finally get to work finishing the brotherhood maps since a few cards in there could synergize. I also crafted a blood mage to compliment them, and after enjoying kalimos' power in hearthstone I came to appreciate that type of power in a game especially when there are no trigger requirements (kalimos in hearth is element trigger so takes planning). These dragons are not immensely powerful, but they did contribute to passing through a couple of annoying matches in the brotherhood maps. I bought the two dragon themed packs for gold (pretty impressed they offer those, hope the other 2 stay available long enough for myself to farm up the gold for those cause I'll be set for a while). Hope to combine a dragon-disco theme soon. I also crafted a card named journey to sovengarde, not sure if the dragon's stat boosts would remain once journey ports them back inside the deck though. But that could be worked around by not using journey until all other rez options were exhausted. And then some control worked in to prepare for a longer game if need be. Man I wrote a lot.

TLDR - Discolock fails in hearthstone currently, but it's a disco inferno in legends since there are cards to actually make the concept work in this game. plus having minimal 50 cards max 70 also helps. Don't build the Whole deck around them, but for slower decks they can give the edge you need once people are topdeckin it.

Can be a pretty scary card combined with rank 2+ soul tear. However, the magicka cost is pretty high. Versus most aggro decks it will be to late to play a 8 cost 5/5 guard creature, it won't save you against a swarm of tokens or whatever 1/2/3 drop creatures your opponent swarms the board with or support buffs like divine fervour for example..
Why this dragon is not undead? Dawnbreaker can't kill it. Is it bug ?

Because cards in this game can only have 1 Race keyword. Developers thought that the fact that this is a Dragon has more importance than the fact it is an Undead creature (which is not surprising, considering their strong bias towards Skyrim sh... ahem, stuff).

One of my favorite cards but only for the fun of it. It is really good only in a reanimate deck and a reanimate deck wich can survive most of time through the first 10 rounds is unknown to me (probably just an urban legend).

I would be happy for a nice reanimate deck, shame that this card goes against Odirniran Necromancer :(
Edit: just an info, if I type in my search bar "skeleton" then this card appears so probably it has a hidden subtype, so it likely benefits from skeleton tribal abilities and probably can be destroyed by Dawnbreaker.
