How to get
|Golden Piloted Reaper||400||50|
- This minion's Deathrattle will check the final cost of the minion, so minions whose mana cost has been reduced to 2 or less can be summoned from it.
Similar to Piloted Shredder, Piloted Reaper has substantial stats on its own and presents a strong Deathrattle. Unlike the random Shredder however, Reaper's effect allows you to choose a minion to be summoned, allowing you to cheat minions out of your hand. This can allow you to summon cards like Millhouse Manastorm or Cornered Sentry while dodging its harmful Battlecry, or replace itself with Taunt minions strategically. However, the loss of randomness removes the card's chance to suddenly change the game with unexpected Doomsayers, Lorewalker Chos, or other such cards.
This card has a few other downsides over Piloted Shredder. If you don't have a minion that costs 2 or less in your hand, this card is very inefficient. It also costs card advantage, pulling a card directly from your hand (unlike the Shredder, which generates it for free). As such, Piloted Reaper should only be used by decks specifically looking to abuse its effect.
- Piloted Reaper's name, stats, and effect are callbacks to the Piloted Shredder card from Goblins vs Gnomes. Piloted Reaper's flavor text references how Piloted Shredder is infamous for supposedly frequently summoning Lorewalker Cho or Doomsayer.
