    It's not gonna happen, stop making it happen.

    But you know...since it'll always cost at least 6-mana...it has good stats for the cost.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Decent Stats because this will almost never be played for 7 - at least 6 :)

    A 3 mana 6/7 taunt seems pretty good.

    Another card that looks like it will be very good in conjunction with the questline. With the right hand you not only see a big minion come down for cheap, but the weapon/tool also hits you in the face for big damage.

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

    Really good support for the quest, or standalone with skull of guldan.  If it's played the turn it's drawn its a 6 mana 6/7 taunt which isn't horrible.

    Good synergy with the draw mechanic and target for this expansion

    Works well with the Questline, but chances are that won't see much if any play, and so neither will this.

    6 mana 6/7 tagged taunt Minion is good, any mana cheat makes It better.

    I wanna try a midrangy Demon DH!

    Not a bad "big" demon. Reduces it's own cost already and DH has a lot of draw. I can see this coming down for 4ish often enough to be decent.

    Now the quest seems to be getting better with all this support. With Skull of Gul'dan this can cost 4 or 1 if discounted by the effect itself so pretty good.

    If it didn't have taunt it'll be hot trash. But then team5 had to muck it up by making it a demon as well. So again, the only reason you're playing this is because you're playing hard for the quest to work. But even a good card in a bad deck is shit, so what's there to say about this card?

    Well, on the bright side, it'll always cost 0 if you get outcasted skull on this thing.

    DH just... doesn't want this? It has better taunts that aren't played, like Ashtongue Battlelord and Insatiable Felhound.

    I'm not sold on this whole "draw-a-bunch-of-cards" demon hunter deck blizzard is trying to push. This card seems fine as long as you can reduce it to 3-4 mana, but I don't think it will be played over other cards that fit your deck better. Maybe in some kind of big demon hunter deck? But other than that it likely won't be played.

    Good stats for cost + taunt at a minimum, but is a nice pay off for spending all the rest of your mana drawing cards.  Still have my doubts on the quests viability, but if quest ends up being good, then this will be alright.  Also is a decent (ish) Big DH minion.

    I wonder how often this will be played for free. If you can play it for 5 or less, that's pretty damn good.

    Probably will be 6 mana 6/7 most of the time, which are some really nice stats for the cost. Not only that, but it also has taunt so it will actually powercreep Boulderfist Ogre. Which is absolute Blasphany. How could they powercreep the "strongest" minion ever created, with those stats for the cost.

    Okay im done with memery now. Irebound Brute seems decent enough in both Big DH and this "draw DH" deck. But my guess is that Big DH and this quest DH are probably going to be merge into one deck at some point.

    In wild it is ODD Costed, BUT i think it wont see play. Mainly because ODD DH prefers cheap minions and spells.

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

    Not bad, not the best. Good stats for the cost
