    Seems too slow to me. Pretty sure most aggro decks will ignore it as well. The only positive thing i will say about this, is that it is quite a sticky minion.

    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.

    Arena filler but at least it has a useful effect.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    The good thing is that it have a lot of life, so it's very possible to get the effect

    Arena cars for sure. Has above average stats, but needs Rush to be useful.

    Hefty enough to stick around for more than a turn.  Honestly not bad, though I doubt it will trigger many HK's.

    Mandatory new arena print to showcase the new mechanic/keywords 
    Are we doing a bingo grid still? Because with Freeze Shamy trending and several powercreeps, I think I have one!

    Its bad. 2 attack really doesn't kill much, and this card needs to honor kill something to even be half way decent.

    A very average card, even in arena its not really that scary because this thing has no rush. So your opponent will likely just trade in such a way to prevent this from getting value.

    Very slow and weak. Probably the most unviable card in the entire set.

    Would've been insane as 3/4. Unfortunately it doesn't have those stats. Handbuff mechanic is real but better minions too.

    Well it summons a beast so might work in the new beast druid but will probably be one of the weaker cards. I'm sure druid will have a class achievement where you have to summon a certain number of 2/2 wolves.

    Pretty bad honorable kill card overall though.

    I'm not sure this is going to be all that good.

    Unless you're sure you're going to get one or more procs of the Honorable Kill trigger on Direwolf Commander, this is a waste. Even then, I'm not convinced this is all that good. Hunter probably doesn't need it because of how easily they can flood the board with Token beasts already, and Beast Token Druid is probably already getting enough class card support to make this neutral irrelevant. It seems like this card is built to punish token decks, so maybe we'll see it as a tech card for token mirrors, but I don't think it will get much play elsewhere.

    2/5 in stats is not bad, especially since all the wee ones on the board don't want you coming back with a 2/2 stealth

    This does at least have high enough health to make it a threat to trigger the honorable kill more than once. I still don't see it being very useful.

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

    Arena card, but interesting enough I guess. I like things that play with Stealth because there's plenty of interesting decisions surrounding that ability.

    It's ok. A bit clunky to trigger the HK, and the reward isn't amazing COuld go great in Beast decks like Druid and Hunter. Probably an Arena-exclusive.

    I have spoken.

    Forgettable Pack Filler, at least forgotten until you browse over your collection and notice you've somehow gotten 9+x copies.
