    Strong yet completely useless because Big Demon Hunter still doesn't have a functioning shell that allows it to actually play the game until they can cheat out big Demons.

    That being said, if you can actually get this out in time it can absolutely shut down a variety of decks (Rogue would probably just fold if this hits the field on 6.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Big Demon Hunter got a new toy. Does this make the archetype playable? Unlikely, but it's a start.

    Ok, fine, we'll give Big DH another try. Personally, I really WANT it to work. I guess we'll see.

    Seems good, BUT Big DH doesn't have the tools to function just yet. But once it gets more support it might see a bunch of play. However Illidari Inquisitor is a better demon for more tempo/midrange DH decks that use N'Zoth, God of the Deep.

    The ONLY time i see this getting play is if Celestial Alignment Druid becomes super OP broken, because Taintheart Tormenter shuts down Lady Anacondra shenanigans a little bit. I'm kinda happy were getting cards that can counter Lady Anacondra.

    Oh and in wild i still don't think it will see play. It's EVEN-costed so that makes it even worse.

    RNG is only fun, as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something good or bad. If RNG always results in something good, it's not fun.

    Sure, why not? Big demon hunter isn't good, but cards like this can only help. The big problem isn't a lack of payoffs though, it's a lack of sustain tools and ways to cheat the minions out.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    It's the first ever good target for Pit Commander to pull. Finally, something that doesn't have Rush or have an end-of-turn effect that gets nullified.

    I'm the only one who stops to see if he's dead.

    Hmm. Turns out he's dead.

    Big DH seems fun, but the best use for this is Arena or Duels with that card that summons 3 Demons from the deck.

    Strong effect. Could be summoned early with Fel Summoner.

    Probably too slow for current DH however an interesting combination of effects.  Could see play in the future.

    This is a strong effect on a big stick but unfortunately had to be at a cost that makes it impossible to play without cheating out.

    There are ways you can cheat it earlier than it should, like Raging Felscreamer, which can make it come out at 6. But unless the entire meta is composed with druids, there's simply no reason to ever want this out on 6. There's also the fact that there's simply better demons you would want, like Illidari Inquisitor, Priestess of Fury, etc.

    Its a druid buster bomb, end of. Too bad the meta is diverse enough that this can never truly shine.
