    So this is the big beast Hunter is getting... Not that impressive. It has a lot of stats and two levels of taunt. Which is good, reminds me of Voidlord, a very powerful defensive card. But can you cheat him out early to protect yourself from aggression? I don't see a way. Playing this card on turn 7 won't really save you.

    Wow. Depressing card. I gotta slay your mama bear defending her cubs then have to slap through them after. O/5 flavor. Wtf Blizzard!

     

    Um, it's too slow for Hunter..duh? Excluding the rarity of a control build, yeah right, right? Fine in Arena.

     

    Maybe it's a perverse way to highlight the plight of the polar bear...? Ok well donate some cash you get from preorders then.

    Okay, getting this out of Revive Pet is impressive. Getting a trio out of Jewel of N'Zoth is gamebreaking. Its basically Voidlord in hunter.

    But there's so few synergies to cheat this out earlier. So for now at least, its unimpressive.

    Great arena card as it generates two 2/4 taunters.  Other than that, it's more filler

    Not really a fan of this, and it reminds me of Voidlord and Savannah Highmane combined. 

    This definitely feels like it was meant to be a 5* Battlegrounds card for Beast though.

    It's a lot of stats on a Deathrattle Beast. Revive Pet, Monstrous Parrot, and Jewel of N'Zoth, so maybe there's something there, but I'm not bullish on this.

    No, the flavor is on point, and advising you to avoid confrontation:

    I guess that's as close as I'll ever get to predicting a Hearthstone card and seeing your reactions to Mountain Bear's flavor, I even might have done a better job :D

    I notice I am confused. Something I believe isn't true. How do I know what I think I know?

    Man, I hope Deathrattle Hunter becomes a thing. I'm so sick of the face-face-face archetypes that the class has had for almost two years now. 

    Mountain Bear is a good revival target for Jewel of N'Zoth and Revive Pet. But this looks like an Arena card for now, I don't see it being played as much in Standard and Wild.

    Depressing flavor aside, this is a lot of stats in one beast. 9/14 across 3 bodies, and they all have taunt. Pretty crazy power creep when compared to Savannah Highmane. I doubt this card alone will push the big beast hunter, but we do have the new Wing Commander Ichman that can synergize with this beast.

    I want to like this, but right now there's just not enough ways to do anything with it. Sure, it'S Leoroxx support but that's just about it.  Maybe JEwel of N'zoth becomes a bit more playable but I'm not sold on that one either.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    If this is the pay-off for Big Beast hunter, I just got even less faith in it ever working. Hunter does not want big sticky taunts, it wants to go face.

    Good for the BIG Hunter archetype, and works with deathrattles. Maybe Vanndar Stormpike can help get it out earlier? And depending if the mana discount to 4 mana influences Guardian Animals, BIG Hunter might be pretty good. And you can ress it with Jewel of N'Zoth and Revive Pet.

    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.

    I guess it’s weak but I want to play with it anyway.

    Is this something Hunter wants? Sure it's a lot stats for 7 mana (with the slight risk of being silenced/transformed).

    I kind of hope DR hunter is a thing.  One of the few archetypes of hunter I can actually stomach playing and not feel like I'm giving up neurons in the process.

    That said, this is a rather weak card overall.

    Shades of Savannah Highmane but with taunt instead. Could see it seeing play.

    Good value when discounted or cheated out with recruit effect but paying 7 mana to drop it, even with taunt, might be too slow for hunter.

    I like the idea behind this card. It provides a couple of layers of defense for you, but if this is what you are counting on I think it comes a bit late. I suppose Stormpike Battle Ram Can get it out for you on turn 5, which would make it playable.

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