    I kinda don't understand the point of Tradeable on this. If you're playing any kind of Midrange Hunter you don't want to spend 1-mana early to just to cycle this (if you do then that means you're already playing from behind). Meanwhile, if you get it later the only reason you wouldn't just play it is if you're fishing for lethal or other outs.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    This is an attempt to make Guardian Animals viable in Hunter (and make Tiny Toys viable). I can't think of any other reason for Team 5 to print this card. Don't expect this to see a lot of play. It won't be amazing in Arena either, just good.

    Not that great but also not that bad ... Tradeable is decent if you draw this early on i guess. The Deathrattle itself is ok - maybe we get some sort of Midrange Control Hunter , and then this could be useful ... but right now i would say it`s an ok card but not great.

    you know what, I completely blanked on the fact that Tradeable synergizes with GA

    This is a solid card that will be fun to play, flexible and dangerous, great synergy with Guardian Animals.

    Guardian Animals aside, I really don't see how this could be playable. The deathrattle is too slow, and it has no other abilities to justify playing a 5 mana 4/5.

    Carrion, my wayward grub.

    It has tradeable, so its by default a decent card to a class that can barely draw.

    But as for the minion itself? Just play Teacher's Pet, a better minion in nearly all scenarios.

    Way too slow for hunter, also weird effect to have on a deathrattle, can be countered because of that

    Honestly, this is a solid 4 star from me.  There aren't too many situations where you WOULDN'T do tradeable with this minion.  It will help you cycle cards with a class that has always struggled with maintaining an onslaught because of card draw, It lowers it's own cost when doing so, it's a beast so things like Scrap Shot, Don't Feed the Animals, Scavenger's Ingenuity, Guardian Animals, and Overwhelm can make benefit of it, it has a deathrattle so it could be discovered via Carrion Studies, and of course, it drops a couple of poisonous rush minions when it dies.  It isn't what I would deem necessary in any Hunter build, but it is solid enough to use in most.

    Not bad but I don't think it'll justify playing Guardian Animals with hunter.

    I think this is a good card, but I don't think it is  good enough to demand a spot right now. I think the rhino just demands being the 5 drop for hunter right now. Maybe there is support for a deathrattle hunter deck where this can shine.

    Unfortunately, common sense isn't as common as it should be.

    Really good for a Midrange Hunter deck, or whatever deck that The Rat King is a part of.

    Yes, Guardian Animals is maybe the only reasonable design take on this one, other than that, I'm not seeing the pertinence of this design.

    Probably best in duals with the deathrattle hero power. Otherwise seems to slow for standard. Maybe finds a spot in wild with all the deathrattle trigger effects Hunter has.

    This does too little the turn it gets played. Tradeable keyword saves it a bit, but doubt it takes up a spot in a deck.

    Very cute art, and works great with Guardian Animals, especially because Tradeable means you can always pull it out of your deck. Such a shame that GA in Hunter got nerfed for Druid's sins.

    I'm not really sure what benefit Tradeable gives to this card. I guess if you have it early you can try and get something you can use, but would that be worth spending 1 mana when you only have 2 or 3?

    Everyone is thinking on ranked, but in duels this card is nuts for a deathrattle hunter. The tokens are very powerful making it a solid menace and a must kill as soon as it gets to the board and The Rat King synergy is very good

    Ooh this seems quite interesting. Maybe Guardian Animals finally sees play in hunter. Tradeable is also REALLY GOOD on it, because you can put it back into your deck so it can get summoned with Guardian Animals.

    Yeh in Standard this might see play in some kind of Guardian Animals hunter deck, probably alongside cards like The Rat King

    In wild i dont think it sees any play. Yeh hunter is still not the best class in wild, and i dont think Highlander Hunter (probably to most popular hunter deck as far as i know off.) most likely doesnt run this. Way to slow for a meta where turn 5 is the turn you probably win or lose the game.

    Oh special mention for duels: This seems really strong with the trigger a deathrattle hero power. Normally i dont mention duels, but this is a special case honestly.

    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.
