    Its a smaller Scale of Onyxia that also happens to curve from a turn 3 wild growth.

    Probably played in most if not all druid decks simply because its druid and there's little to no early game removal post rotation.

    Okay so why did we give Druid yet ANOTHER way to efficiently clear wide boards?

    Also, why is this a Nature spell? Animal summoning spells have never been Nature before, why is this different?

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Amazing after turn 3 Wild Growth. (If it's still in the core set) 5 mana get a 6/6 taunt is really nice, and better stats than most 5 drops will have. And 6 1/1s with rush is a mini Scale of Onyxia which can help remove a bunch of minions. This will 100% see play in any "slower" druid decks like ramp druid.

    In wild it wont see play. There are way better options.

    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 like the token support, but I am unsure of the cost.  With cards like Jerry Rig Carpenter this could show a lot of fun

    Mostly guessing here, but I imagine you'd almost always choose the taunt. I think they made it 6 rush minions to make room for those get both choices effects though. The only time you'd probably want the otters is if your board is empty, and you need a thing or two to die right now.

    Such a cute and powerful card, considering we have multiple cards in standard like Jerry Rig Carpenter, Pathmaker and Raid Negotiator. We also have Pride Seeker which reduces the cost of this spell to 3. 

    Will definitely see play

    I really hate that there are only 4 otters on the image.

    The 5th and 6th otters uses a fish cosplay.

    Could be worse. Depending on if Druid gets a good, cheap AoE buff this could be the new Arbor Up, or it could be the new Wisps of the Old Gods, and by that I mean it could see no play. Just flexible enough that I'm willing to bet that it finds a home somewhere.

    I have spoken.

    Wowzer, 6 for (5) is pretty good - then knowing how druid just ramp up their mana - this is great addition to an already well garnished arsenal for Druid to populate and deal with wide boards. This will see countless plays, until its rotation or its nerf ^^

    ADORABLE.  Also pretty good follow up to Fandral Staghelm, if you are going for a tempo choose 1 deck (though I wonder if the otters or orca would be summoned first?)

    From the wording, it does imply that the Orca gets summoned first, followed by 5 Otters (remember, we're talking up a board space with Fandral.)

    A nice and versatile card, specially with Fandral Staghelm making a comeback. I expect at least one copy of it to be ran in non aggro Druid decks.
