i think any kind of change would be better than this card as it is now..anyway..
Most people are not pleased with Kidnapper. (Or most of the Rogue epics to be honest) There are some notable suggestions like pull a minion into your hand, or simply put the word Charge on his card. Though it seems likely this card and the Rogue epics at large will not receive attention until after release. Just keep track of these ideas so when the time comes we have good data, and reasonable replacement ideas handy.
Hello Rogues and fellow readers :D
I would like sumthing like this: ill keep dreaming, but enjoyed myself creating this im no pro :D in art works so sumbudy els have to do that part but had a great time creating this cartoon of existing cards.
And the idea would be that pickpocket could pick a take, 1+ dmg or 1+ heath from a minion and move it to are kidnapper for example in combo it would take 1 mana from oponent.
Silly card, needs to be reworked before it's viable. Someone said make it a 4/4 for 5 mana. Now that's an idea. Make it actually seem like an epic card. I mean honestly, this card doesn't even read like an epic card or fit the description of one. Maybe a rare...maybe....
This card is one of the worst in the game imho. 6 mana combo is too ahrd to pull off. It's even rare to get to a point in the game passed 8/9 mana where u can use them too full advantage.
I really hope this card gets redone so my bounce deck get more wins then the 17% it has now. This is mostly my own fault. I'm trying to make a bounce deck that really works. But I feel one of the reasons why it's performing so bad is because of the kidnapper. And I refuse to let it out, it's one of the core cards in the deck.
But my suggestions for it to make it better are:
1. make him cheaper, simple to implement and at 5 costs u can use it in combination with panda at 7, this seems good to me and most of the time U'll get to turn 7.
2. give it stealth, at least when u put it out it doesn't die straight away which happens most of the time. ANY low removal deals easily with this card. Forstbolt, wrath, warriors axe, the rogue combo thingy, all of them kills it right away so nice to always see it burned striaght away.
3. remove the combo, just give him a build in sap this makes it much easier to play this card and u don't have to wait till turn 8 to play it with the combo effect.
4. like said before make it a 4/4 like the sleath giver. harder to remove.
So please give this lovely kidnapper some love blizz...
questing adventurers, edwin vancleef, shadow step, conceal, saps, preparations, gadgetzans and coldlight oracle. With `Kidnapper` you would have 3/5 (shadowstep) return to hand ability. You may burn opponent cards with coldlight, and if u can manage to keep advanturers alive+ vancleef around turn 7 u might have 3 12/12 on the board. Its pretty occasional but undeniably fun to play.
AMAZING this issue STILL has not been addressed... Way to care, Blizzard
So its not a 5-3 for 4 + utility, if it forces you to play another card to get Sap.
Rogue is a incredibly quick at burning cards, most of the time you wont have a low cost one to go with it, unless you're playing mech to get tokens.
6 mana 4/5
Battlecry: Return an enemy minion into the opponent's hand.
No need to be a costly Brewmaster, we already have Sap, let's focus on that more. This way it also rhymes with Anduin's Cabal Shadow Priest, which is also an epic, has the same cost and has a useful effect.
There are several ways to rework it. As many people has said, make it a battlecry.
If combo, i think a cool mechanic could be; "take control of an enemy minion with 3 or less attack/health, combo if 5 or more attack/health put it in your hand" then the mechanic is good, but not too good because you need to play the minion next turn full cost.
If they want to keep the current card stats and cost, they should at least add "cost 3 more, if friendly cost 3 less"
They could even make it so that cards you bounce keep current buffs, if that is even possible.
Have to go for lunch! Later.
