    I mean...it IS a big beast but...what do I do with it? Would be sick if it just hit straight-up face but I guess that would be busted in Wild or something.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Hmm, so this seems way too expensive to me. But you could run it alongside Vanndar Stormpike. Maybe some kind of BIG Priest or BIG Hunter deck? Hunter does have Revive Pet AND when it costs 4 mana thanks to vanndar, maybe it can be "recruited" by Guardian Animals? Not sure if thats how Guardian Animals works with cost reductions, but if this does work maybe its playable.

    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.

    That's a big Beast! Basically a weaker Ragnaros the Firelord, that only has one shot. Trash.

    Could have potential synergy with the hunter card that when traded gives rush...

    A big whatever of a card. Maybe someone takes this from a deathrattle discover or it randomly pops out of something. Then we all highlight to see what the hell this does. 

    Chumbawumba is the worst band name.

    I like the art, I love the deathrattle, and it fits right up my alley. Too bad this cards very nearly trash unless team5 unwisely decides to redo the first month of the DoD expansion.

    You can meme with this card, with deathrattle rogue or hunter, where its going to realistically do some real damage or combo well. But honestly, that 8 damage can go face, but will more probably end up murdering a 1/1 dude on board.

    Love the art, but the card itself seems too weak. The deathrattle is too easily countered by going wide, would be better if it went face instead.

    You can highroll with it, if you just that enemy minion that could give you trouble, or going face, but it's very unreliable

    Even though this expansion looks deathrattle centric, this minion won't see play due to the low health and random deathrattle.

    It's an owl. Big enough to menace an orc. I love it. I will find a deck for it.

    I guess this could be good if big minions are popular. Absolute waste if it hits something that only has 3 health or some shit.

    Every time I play this card it's going to be 7 mana 8/4 deal 8 damage to a random 1/1 so I'm not allowed to play it. Maybe you can?

    This is probably bad, but it could make for some wacky OTKs with [Hearthstone Card (Tasmin's Phylactery) Not Found] - something like a fully powered up Wicked Shipment + [Hearthstone Card (Tasmin's Phylactery) Not Found] + Soul Rend (or Plague of Flames in Wild) to shoot your opponent in the face for tons of damage. It might also be relevant to Xyrella, the Devout, and it would be pretty sweet in the late game to pick up from Call of the Grave. It's also a beast, so maybe Deathrattle Hunter cares about this (it does curve nicely with Stormpike Battle Ram), but all of these options feel like somewhat awkward fits.

    No rush or taunt? No good then. GA would be fine with it but then, you would run bard card to stuck in your hand for most of the time.
