How does this card got such a nice rate ? Sometimes it's hard to find cheap cards in late and if you don't have them it's just a Piercing Javelin without a prophecy for 9 mana.
Maybe i just don't know something. People, explain !

This is a late game card for pure control decks. Stealing a creature is such an OP effect that the cost looks adeguate to me. If your deck has a good draw engine, you'll have something cheap to activate plot in hand. By the way, we'll see how it performs when expansion comes out..
- Don't cast all your 0 cost cards in early game.
- Mages Guild Recruit.
- Nix-Ox
- Astrid or Brotherhood Slayer that gives you Completed Contracts. As far as I know it counts as spell.
- etc.
This card is truly interesting. In my opinion, there is a great combo with Morag Tong Nightblade (as for all other expensive actions). But Miraak is still the best card with steal effect as he can steal a creature on his own.
Who the heck is rating this card highly in Arena? There's no way you reliably get the plot to work there, nor would you be happy about a 9 mana javelin.

Now that Mantikora has been nerfed again (Guard keyword removed), this card will see more play
Combine it with Mushroom tower for some ultra greed special fun
Practically a 9 drop javelin if you don't plot it :| You need at least 10M at all to activate its plot at all. Arrest then Dark Rebirth for the same price and not predicated on plot mechanic. Do not waste your gems for this.

Stealing creatures will tilt your opponent more than almost anything else but this card rarely gets to do that. Piercing Javelin is almost strictly better. Prophecy against aggro decks and can be played 4 turns earlier if needed. The conditional benifit is likely to only matter in the most strictly controlling decks. This will see tech spots in yellow control depending on meta but most control decks would prefer their own finisher or a guaranteed steal like Miraak, Dragonborn.
