The good:

1) This curves right into Ethereal Peddler

2) This gives a chance to reroll awful spells received from Swashburglar, Undercity Huckster, Shaku, the Collector

3) This has good stats

4) This gives a way out from "classic" rogue hands full of useless spells. You are happy to topdeck this if your hand is Preparation, Counterfeit Coin , Counterfeit Coin, Cold Blood

5) It gives you a way to turn high tempo low value spells allowing to not run out of resources quickly

The bad:

1) It is not a good idea replace spells you chose to play with something random that may be completely useless

2) Playing Chillwind Yeti  on turn 4 against aggro decks will usually result in a quick death. Pirate warriors, token shamans and aggro druids aren't going anywhere.

3) It may stay in your hand forever if you don't want to transform your useful spells

We  didn't see 1 common, 1 rare, 2 epics and death knight for rogue. Any of these may be a new spell generator

You have a point good sir.

Well.  Having actually played a decent amount of burgle rogue, I can say, this card really isn't bad in that archtype. It really has no chance of being played in any other deck really, but the amount of useless spells you can get cluttered in your hand is quite high, plus this card can be played on curve.  I mean not competitive, but fun.

Ah... Random replacements for Gadgetzan Auctioneer's fuel when it gets Hall of F***'d.

More card steal! More RNG! More randomness! More Polymorph from Babbling Book to 'skillfully' win tournaments! Un-nerf Yogg-Saron, Hope's End and give it for free to every player instead of C'Thun so everyone can share in the fun! RNG IT TO THE MAX! PLAY WHATEVER YOU DRAW, IT DOESN'T MATTER ANYWAY!

Card name / WoW character it is based on is a tribute to Lilliana Vess from Magic the Gathering? Cool :)

Everywhere. There's just so much random card generation and effects in this game that it boils down to a coin flip far too often. Where's the satisfaction from "winning" a game when you get Leeroy Jenkins out of the Firelands Portal you just got from pinging your own Shimmering Tempest as a last-ditch desperation measure? What lessons to improve your gameplay can you draw from losing against a Priest who gets exactly the Pint-Size Potion and the second Divine Spirit he needs from Lyra the Sunshard he just dropped on his empty sided of the board to OTK you with your own Primordial Drake?

I feel you, RNG is one of the things I love and hate about this game. When it's good it's good but when it's bad....... I have to go get my laptop out of the neighbor's yard.

Your laptop? You mean the pieces of your laptop after you smashed it on the way down

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!

      The details for this year's Hallow's End festivities have been revealed.
      As already known from update 12.2, Hallow's End will return from October 17 until October 31. During that time, upon logging in you will receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron and a free Arena ticket.
      You can use that ticket to enter the Dual Class Arena event. You will choose a Hero, then the Hero Power of another Hero and you will make a deck consisting of both Heroes' class cards and neutral cards. If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end. During the first week (October 17-22), there will be a new Tavern Brawl called Monster Smash. You will get randomly assigned one of six Monster Hunt villains with a premade deck. The other Tavern Brawl (October 24-29) is the one we saw last year as well, The Headless Horseman Rides Again!
      Lastly, the new Paladin Hero, Sir Annoy-o, will be available as a bundle along with 20 Witchwood card packs. The pricing of the bundle is still unknown.

      It’s the Headless Horseman’s favorite time of year, and he’s returning to the Hearthstone tavern from October 17 through October 31 to host another a blowout Hallow’s End celebration for everyone! If you dare to brave a tavern decked in delightfully dreary decorations, you’ll find that your horrific host has also planned some spine-tingling treats and chilling challenges!
       
      Tempting Treats
      The Headless Horseman is handing out ghoulish goodies just for logging in! Log in between October 17 and 10 p.m. PDT on October 31 to receive a free golden Witch’s Cauldron card and an Arena ticket.

       
      The Great Hallow’s End Arena Costume Party
      During Hallow’s End you can experience dual class Arena* with an added twist: Each of the nine classic Hearthstone Heroes will be attending in costume!

       
      When you start an Arena run during Hallow’s End, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and the cards offered in your picks will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards. And don’t forget, you’ll get a free Arena ticket just for logging in, so there’s no excuse not to attend the party!
       
      TWO Tricky Tavern Brawls!
      Monster Smash is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from October 17 to Oct. 22.
       
      Wise monster hunters avoid the haunted wood during Hallow’s End, so the creepy creatures of the Witchwood are taking the opportunity to find out which among them is the strongest! Take control of a monster from The Witchwood’s Monster Hunt single-player mission and SMASH the competition!

       
      The Headless Horseman Rides Again is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from Oct. 24 to 29.
       
      The Headless Horseman has been marauding through the countryside, and it’s up to you to stop him! You’ll go in disguise to catch the fiend by surprise—after the Brawl begins, you’ll get to Discover which costume you’ll wear. Each costume has its own deck featuring cards from several classes and a passive Hero Power that you’ll need to make the most of if you want to succeed at sinking the sinister specter!

       
      Hallow! Hallow! Bundle
      While the creatures of the Witchwood stir, and townsfolk cower during the fearful fun of Hallow’s End, Sir Annoy-o remains ever undaunted! He doesn’t even know what a daunt is! Say HELLO! HELLO! HELLO! to the new Paladin Hero and add 20 The Witchwood card packs to your collection when you buy the Hallow! Hallow! Bundle.
       


       
      There’s a feast of fearsome fun to be had at the Headless Horseman’s Hallow’s End hootenanny. Don’t forget to check out a Hallow’s End Fireside Gatherings Tavern near you and get Nemsy Necrofizzle as the celebration continues!
       
      We hope you’ll join us, and we wish you a HAPPY HALLOW’S END!

       
      * NOTE: If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket. In the hours just before the beginning and conclusion of Hallow’s End on October 17 and October 31, the ability to purchase a new Arena ticket will be temporarily disabled.

      Some balance changes will be made next week and they will be announced before the reset, on Monday 15 of October.
      It's difficult to guess which cards will be targeted, but there has been a lot of talk about Giggling Inventor lately.
      Here's the announcement of the announcement:
