The Rogue Legendary Loa has just been unveiled!

The reveal was made by MKRR3 on YouTube. The video is in Polish.

Gral, the Shark can potentially draw you a minion but it is quite weak to Silence. Still, Rogue has quite a few ways to trigger the Deathrattle and now with Spirit of the Shark, it can trigger the Battlecry twice as well. At first sight, though, it feels like a weak card: Silence destroys it, high mana cost and Rogue traditionally runs quite a few small minions as well. It also doesn't seem to fit with the Pirate theme Rogue will have in Rastakhan's Rumble, altough perhaps we can see Beast Rogue with Oondasta and the recently revealed Untamed Beastmaster.

What do you people think about this card?

Well, this is definitely a strange Battlecry. Could be fun to built a meme-deck around this. But in the end I can't really imagine how someone could get any more value out of this then an expensive Mountain Giant that draws a card when it dies. Even in the best possible case you just get a bunch of stats and draw one or two minions...thats pretty much a slower, bigger and more unreliable version of Elven Minstrel.

How is it a tutor effect? Do you get to choose the minion it eats? Doesn’t seem like it from the text. 

That’d be insane on curve. As it is, seems pretty weak to me.

Also does ‘gain its stats’ mean just the attack and health? 

Even with spirit of the shark, you could just end up with a 5 mana 2/8 unless you’ve drawn both spirits. And playing Turn 4 shark, Turn 5 gral into enemy spellbreaker is pretty much game over against anything vaguely aggressive.

Yeah, sorry, when I saw the card, I thought you got to choose but you don't. It's just random. And yeah, just attack and health.

I kind of like it, miracle rogue runs mostly 3/3s and above.  A 5 mana 5/5 draw a card for 5 is great.  Probably depends on how much silence is teched into the meta.

      The single-player adventure, introduced along with the Rastakhan's Rumble expansion, is now available in all regions.
      The Rumble Run is very similar to the Dungeon Run and the Monster Hunt, in the sense that you will face eight opponents and you will build your deck as you progress using card bundles, passives and powerful minions exclusive to this game mode.
      Your hero will always be Rikkar, a young Troll champion eager to prove himself. In the beginning of your run, you will be offered three different Shrines (more on them in the next paragraph) from three different classes. This initial decision basically equals to you picking a Class for this run. The other eight classes will be your opponents.

      Shrines exist as minions on the board and they have powerful effects. Each class has three different Shrines and each starting Shrine comes with a complementary deck of 10 minions that synergise with it. When a Shrine dies, it goes dormant for 3 turns and its effect isn't active until it comes back to life.
      Subsequently, you will build your deck using card bundles, neutral passive abilities and class-specific minions exclusive to the Rumble Run.
      If you finish the Rumble Run once with any class, you will earn this card back:

      Good luck on this new adventure and we'll soon have a detailed guide on it!
