    That looks really strong if the Token Beast archetype works out. The question is, how fast can you plop down multiple beasts and is it faster than taunt Druid?

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    This is pretty crazy, a lot of stats for three mana if you have a wide board. Especially if you can afford to leave those [Hearthstone Card (Frostwolf Pup) Not Found]s in stealth and then play this.

    At worst, it's the equivalent of a Blessing of Kings when targeting a beast. Everything else is bonus. 

    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)

    Strong buff for beast based token druid decks. But that's it.

    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.

    Strong buff, but really specific. Something that will be played if Discovered, but not put into a deck.

    I want this to be good, but it does sounds limiting and conditional - still, I want to believe

    At first I got excited, then I saw the caveat. The bonus +1+1 only applies to beast. And whereforth will druid fill the board with these things? Just play Frostwolf Kennels and wait for 2 turns? because those cute little cubs do have stealth.

    Looks good in theory, but honestly, I think its safe to say you'd much rather just play Power of the Wild or wait a turn for Pride's Fury, which is likely infinitely better.

    More token/beast support.  Really wish they could come up with new archetype ideas for classes...

    Really wraps Aggro Beast Druid together in a bow don't it? While I much rather use Arbor Up for the finisher, that card rotates relatively soon, and this is much cheaper.

    Is beast Druid a thing? This will likely be good if Druid fills the board with beasts.

    Well it's a good board buff for even a token druid that runs a few beasts. It's even better than Blessing of the Ancients and looks like blizzard is really trying to push this midrange beast archetype. We might get there this expansion. It'll definitely be tested out

    Having a beast and at least 1 or 2 tokens in the early game seems possible for druid so it might actually see some play. And curses.

    Compare this to Nofin Can Stop Us and it's just embarrassing. Yes, Beast Token Druid has been heavily pushed this expansion, and it could be a serious archetype, but most of the time this is only marginally better than Mark of the Lotus and Power of the Wild, making it way overpriced. The potential saving grace here is that if you target a beast with this, it will get +3/+3 (the initial +2/+2 and then another +1/+1), and that could be a big deal if you're looking to trade on board while getting solid chip damage in on their face.

    For a 3 mana minion buff, not bad.  Kinda encourages that Druid run more beasts, but that's ok

    Just run Power of the Wild.  Outclassed by that in so many ways.

    Nice board buff for beast decks. If you can manage to put this on Moonfang he gets really tough to deal with outside transform effects. Maybe beast druid works, but I'm not expecting it to.

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

    Pretty strong for beast druid, if you manage to extend wide on board this could be a powerful finisher

    Not for every Token deck, because you want to be summoning specifically a lot of beasts. Luckily, Glowfly Swarm summons Beasts, so I can definitely see this fitting into a Fungal Fortunes Mostly Spells Token deck to buff a wide board of Glowflies.

    I have spoken.
