General Comments

Academic Espionage is a very potent card that seems incredibly powerful at first glance. If you are able to acquire high-Cost cards from this card, then it potentially win the game on the spot, however, it also dilutes your deck and really hurts Rogue's consistent card draw ability.


Constructed Play

Academic Espionage is a solid card for Rogue decks with large amounts of card draw, such as Miracle Rogue.



In Arena, Academic Espionage is a weak card. The huge tempo loss of playing a 4 Mana card that has no immediate effect is very detrimental in Arena. Additionally, the lack of consistent card draw in Arena also makes it very unlikely you will be able to draw into many of the cards shuffled into your deck.
