General Comments

Lab Recruiter is serious upgrade to both Baleful Banker and Gang Up, and plays excellently with Pogo-Hopper. Though it does not currently see play in Standard as a value card or a combo-enabler, there is a good chance that Lab Recruiter's powerful effect will be useful in future expansions.


Constructed Play

Lab Recruiter was made to be friends with Pogo-Hopper, and should be run as a 2-of in any Pogo-Hopper deck. With 2 Lab Recruiters, the card be used to infinitely shuffle additional copies of Lab Recruiter back into the deck in fatigue matchups.



2 drops are incredibly important for most Arena decks, which makes Lab Recruiter an enticing card for its stats alone. There will be many games where a 2 Mana 3/2 is exactly what you need to control the board in the early game, and far fewer games where the Battlecry on Lab Recruiter is truly relevant. Regardless, Lab Recruiter is a high pick for its utility in the early game and potential upside in the late game.
