While this card has a strong Deathrattle, the unpredictable nature of its discard effect is a heavy downside, often negating or even outweighing the card draw. It can be turned to the player's advantage though, with discard-related effects like Tiny Knight of Evil, Fist of Jaraxxus, and Malchezaar's Imp. In combination with any of those, this card has a "positive" Battlecry, a positive deathrattle, and is decently statted.

If this card is played while your hand is empty, it is essentially a more powerful Loot Hoarder.


The truth is in here!
I'll find it.


Darkshire in World of Warcraft

After years of defending their town against the terrors of Duskwood, the grim defenders of Darkshire are no strangers to horror or madness. This librarian appears to be searching for answers in forbidden tomes, but the search has clearly exacted a horrific cost. She may be selflessly sacrificing her humanity in order to defend her home against the coming darkness, or perhaps readily yielding herself to the Old Gods in exchange for dark new powers.

Darkshire is a once-quaint little woodland village located in Duskwood, but it has fallen on literally dark times. The surrounding forests have been filled with an evil malaise that cloaks the land in constant darkness. The walking dead choke the graveyards, and foul creatures known as worgen have overrun many of the outlying farmsteads. Even worse, Stormwind has all but abandoned the village and the surrounding area, as most of the Stormwind army is currently off fighting on the Horde/Alliance front. This has left the stubborn people of Duskwood little choice but to defend themselves.
The small town now numbers a scant 3,500 people, a great deal of them refugees from Raven Hill. Lord Ello Ebonlocke is the elected mayor of this town. His daughter, Commander Althea Ebonlocke, runs the Night Watch, a local militia that works to keep the roads free and the creeping darkness back for as long as possible. They strike against the undead and worgen that plague the land. The people of Duskwood are a jumpy and suspicious lot, but they are desperate for any aid they can get against the evil that now surrounds their homes.
