Very powerful, especially in combination with freeze or small taunt minions. Will I be able to use it in the turn that I get it or must I wait for one more turn?

Considering the other "gain control" cards let you use the minion that same turn, I'm thinking this works the same way. See Shadow Madness or Potion of Madness

I'm going out on a limb and saying this is just a worse version of Mind Control and won't let you use it the same turn you get it.

If you permanently gain control, you have to wait a turn

if its control for a wsingle turn, its usable that turn.

Honestly? It's not that hot. Simple removal is almost always going to be better, this gives your opponent a turn to react in many possible ways. It's not nearly as good as Entomb was.

I think this card is a strong contender for the lyra style control priest.  They tend to run only a few minions and if you aren't getting ran over by aggro you can use this to steal one of their mid rangy minions at the cost of a little health.  I feel this, while not as university useful as entomb was, is still quite strong in decks that only run a few minions.  ON top of that it offers a very strong answer to Ysera, a card priests have a ton of trouble dealing with, as well as a lot of those pesky deathrattles like Savanah highmane.

It's one of those cards that isn't strong enough to include in your deck but would be nice to get from Lyra the Sunshard

Yep. Can't see myself putting it in a deck normally, but I'm sure it will save me at least once when Lyra drops it.

      It was noticed that the Hunter Death Knight's Hero Power doesn't include any Beasts from Kobolds & Catacombs. The Hearthstone team is going to amend that in the near future.
      The Build-A-Beast Hero Power doesn't include any Beasts from the new K&C expansion and subsequently wouldn't include any new Beasts from future expansions. Mike Donais explained that this was done because of issues with translating the Custom Zombeast cards in all of the languages that Hearthstone is available. Obviously, this caused an outrage during the past weekend.
      Thankfully, Team 6 listened to the community's concerns and they agreed to expand the pool of Beasts, from which you can craft your custom Zombeast. This is going to happen for Kobolds & Catacombs at some point in the future - perhaps after the Christmas vacations. There will also be support for Beasts from future expansions, but some of them may be excluded for balance reasons (like King of Beasts).

      Greetings,

      Many players have noticed that Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power does not include any of the new Beasts that were added with the Kobolds & Catacombs expansion.

      Since then, some players have provided constructive feedback regarding the state of Deathstalker Rexxar, and we agreed that a change to the Hero Power was warranted.

      As such, we will be updating Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power to include new Beasts going forward. Please be patient, as this is a fairly complicated endeavor and we may need to start with a smaller change before a more permanent solution is implemented. We don’t have a date for this change to share with you today, but we will provide more information once we have it.

      Please also note that as new Beasts are released, we may need to mark some of them as exempt for various reasons, much like how King of Beasts is currently excluded from the pool of Beasts that Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power can pull from. 

      Thank you for providing constructive feedback. We see your love and passion for Hearthstone and believe that the best way to make Hearthstone better is to do so together.

      See you all in the Tavern! (source)
