1. General Comments
Novice Engineer is one of the few immediate card draw effects in the game that is available to all Classes. Despite this, it is often quite a low impact minion, having one of the lowest possible stat distributions.
2. Constructed Play
Novice Engineer is usually only used in very specific Combo decks, since it is able to cheaply draw a card that you can use immediately, as opposed to the delayed effect of a card like Loot Hoarder.
Novice Engineer is a fairly poor choice in Arena. Although it replaces itself in your hand, and will therefore potentially create card advantage, it is much more likely to represent a significant loss of Tempo, as your opponent will be able to gain an advantage on the board with a superior minion.
