    Not a terrible card at all. We do have Kodo Mount still collection dust, looking for a good target to buff and this might just be it. Gonna have to wait for the corresponding Legendary though because right now the beast package is too disjointed.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Arena: Another solid card. Piloted Shredder is on the weaker side these days but still playable. Dire Frostwolf is like a modern age version of that card. Significantly better, but not broken or anything.

    Constructed: Looks like this is part of a package. Are we finally getting to see (Midrange) Beast Druid? Could be.

    Arena fodder.  4 for a 4/4 in druid that will give you something much less beneficial on the backend when it dies is not exactly efficient with Druid's play style

    Not bad, has a lot of potential. Basicly like Piloted Shredder, but it pretty much always gets to attack and gives you a Kodo Mount target, or any other buff card. Worst case scenario it just sees play in arena.

    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.

    It's a lot of stats, curves perfectly into Arbor Up for a lot of face damage and is very very sticky. Don't overlook this one!

    Really good if the package sees play. Beast Druid will be a fun archetype I haven't really touched in a long long time and kinda want to try out already

    Its just a good minion, but therein lies the problem: its a druid card, and its a beast.

    So you can't play Guardian Animals with this card in because obviously you dont ever want to draw it out. And most druid decks tend to play broken stuff so its practically sharing the same problem with Druid of the Plains: Good card, but not good enough in specifically druid.

    But if there ever was a midrange beast druid, this card is just core. You cant go too far from what this one offers, both stealth and deathrattle, which means its nearly 100% guaranteed to maintain something on board for you.

    Stealth Piloted Shredder. Likely too slow, but I'm willing to try it.

    I have spoken.

    Midrange Druid was tried multiple times and they all failed. Dire Frostwolf shows a more tempo approach, which I believe might actually give Beast Druid the chance to shine.

    Rating cards on coolness factor rather than predicting power because I like screwing up rating averages (and because I suck at predicting real power levels, but we'll ignore that LUL)

    This could be alright. Stealth makes it a nice buff candidate, and when it dies you get another smaller stealth to do a little more damage, barring any AOEs.

    I think this is the least interesting card in this Token Beasts package, but Druid looks like it has some room for 4-drops, particularly if they help ensure [Hearthstone Card (Compsting) Not Found] and Arbor Up targets. So, it's got real potential.

    +1 for the reminder that Piloted Shredder once terrorized the (standard) meta

    We have to see if this midrange beast druid takes off next expansion. It's looking promising, and this beast will definitely be in the deck. This is one of those cards that are good in a package, but standalone, it's better in arena

    When Piloted shredder released.  I crafted it in gold.  Still one of my favorite cards.  Shame that by today's standards, shredder would be borderline bad.

    This card feels... correct. Not good, not bad, just some value for the cost but no shiny impact on the board. If beast druid will be a thing then yeah, maybe but depends on a style for the deck. I wish questline could run it but with no attack synergy feral roleplaying has close to 0 sense.

    Piloted Shredder +?  In all seriousness, I don't think this is great.  Beast druid just doesn't have the payoff you would want for a deck, this doesn't really help.

    More support for the token (maybe mid-range) beast druid. I'm not sure this makes enough happen since it is a deathrattle and not a battle cry. I don't think it is fast or strong enough, which of course means that it will do just fine.

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

    Stealth and the beast tribe are the only thing that makes this potentially play-able.
