Sorry for the lack of feedback. I'll give some tomorrow.
Super sticky minion, kinda like a double divine shield. I'm thinking about using a 4/5 statline.
It's a bit similar to the card I used for the spellburst comp, but I guess that's not a big deal.
EDIT: Added the Taunt version.
I added a second version of my card which has -1/-1 and Taunt.
That said, both as a hero or as a spell, I'm a bit worried about the thematic similarity to Overlord Saurfang (you know, both summon Frenzy minions and trigger their effects).
That said, don't go with the 1/1 Bear Cub, please.
A couple of ideas for the week:
grumpymonk - I like it. Unlocking one overloaded crystal isn't much of a "payoff", 'though you can definitely benefit later on if you're spamming Overload.
Wailor - I think giving it Taunt might be too much, especially if the Paladin player is managed to buff its Health. Frenzy on a Paladin minion seems off flavor-wise, as well, but purely from a gameplay perspective I like the stickiness.
shatterstar1998 - Frenzy triggering is like a Battlecry or a Deathrattle, and not an on-going effect like having Spell Damage, so Thalnos seems weird. I like Explore the Barrens, though: as you said, it's a good standalone card.
If you have the time, you should totally check out our weekly Hearthstone card design competitions! :D
Damn, I've been late for the second round. Truth be told, I really can't think of anything else for this comp.
I appreciate the idea of Misterious Wildkin (which has a typo by the way, it should be "Mysterious", unless it's supposed to be a pun), but the text is very clunky and doesn't look too good.
Barrens Black Drake feels mostly weak overall. Moat Lurker has never been an "okay" card and this isn't that much better.
Hungry Crocolisk is really flavorful, but it suffers from a few problems. Namely that good targets for it will be hard to come by since it has low Attack and Health, needs to kill the minion and survive the attack. Lots of variables there. It does also run into a problem that Wailor pointed out where it might attack something with 0 Attack and not get damaged. If that happens, then the Frenzy is basically gone. A less talked about problem with cards that gain stats when they die is that they don't work as the creator will have intended and the same works for this card. Since it's killing a minion, it won't gain any Health since the minion it's basing its Health gain off of is 0 or lower. In fact, if it's lower than 0 then it'll take further damage since it's trying to gain a negative number of Health.
A little bit more feedback:
Barrens Black Drake is not bad, but I agree with demonxz95 that it is not very powerful.
As for Hungry Crocolisk, triggering frenzy is a conditional effect, unlike battlecry and deathrattle. Having a conditional effect on top of it makes this hard to use. I believe that frenzy effects should work in a vacuum, barring any situations such as empty boards or hands. That's why I made the card I added overload 1 to the card I submitted, to make the frenzy worth something without having to run other overload cards.
Explore the Barrens is very nice. Like a studies card, but instead of the discount, it guarantees value on the board
I made it neutral, bumped up the stats slightly, and fixed the wording.
I like the idea of having a downside on the card and a frenzy to mitigate it, but right now it feels too easy to ignore the overload.
Carrion, my wayward grub.
You have roughly 24 hours left to submit, if you have not done so already!
@KANSAS - That looks good.

Feedback:I feel like you should add "Deathrattle: Trigger Momma Bear's Frenzy effect." to Bear Cub or sth. like that. That might make you need to tinker their stats tho but it would be so flavourful. :)Edit: Oh You've changed your card, anyways gl . :)
Made it just in time!
Good luck, everyone!
Good luck to all finalists!
I do have a question though, why are there ten finalists for this week when there's usually eight? Was there a three-way tie for eighth place?

Grats, anchor. Very well deserved first place.
Thank you very much! And a special thanks to KANSAS who was a big help forming my initial idea into its final design!
I notice I am confused. Something I believe isn't true. How do I know what I think I know?Harry James Potter-Evans-Verres, hpmor.com
