    Cheap and efficient damage for a class that already has a lot of cheap and efficient direct damage.  We haven't really seen a lot of Naga usages in Hunter/Neutral to see if this is going to be a mainstay in the meta

    Defend the Dwarven District will use this to replace Overwhelm. Also might be good in a Big hunter deck, so they can survive the early game. Also we haven't seen Naga stuff in hunter yet, so maybe it has some additional synergy. This card seems VERY good.

    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.

    Its just Arcane Shot in another name most of the time, and some times its a smaller more useful Multi-Shot.

    Why? Because the condition requires you to play a naga, and how many times can anyone keep arcane shot in their hand for an upgrade? Quest hunters will shoot immediately, while face hunters simply wont care about it. Unless there's a 0 mana naga, or really cheap ones, dont expect this to do more than an arcane shot.

    Not that that's any problem at all. I mean, we're still playing arcane shot today. And quest hunter will take anything they can get, having lost some of their arsenal.

    More gas for Questline Hunter in Wild. Quite good if you can swing it with that insane Legendary for Hunter since it has the Naga tribe tag. Decent on it's own legs.

    I'll give them 2 weeks before they nerf Quest Hunter into the ground. Just a straight upgrade over Overwhelm

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    I assume the gameplay animation will be similar to Goliath, Sneed's Masterpiece as long as you play a naga to get the 2nd effect. You could combo this spell with Raj Naz'jan so Quest hunter is looking pretty scary now

    Can find use in Questline hunter if they somehow incorporate Nagas into their builds. Otherwise this is Arcane Shot win an upside. Honestly not the worst.

    Should be good for Quest Hunter as a replacement for whatever spells the deck is losing. Right now there aren't a lot of cheap Naga to activate it early, but it could be a good combo with Raj to clear your opponent's board while getting in some chip damage. With Furious Holw also in Hunter, I'd expect to see this in Face Hunter lists as well.

    I have spoken.

    At the very least, this is Arcane Shot, and if you fulfill the condition, it's two Arcane Shots. You'd probably want to play another spell to trigger the Naga, then play it, then play this. That could be too slow.

    It could actually revive Odd Questline Hunter in place of the useless Trade minions

    Its a cheap flexible spell, it will find its deck just because it can hit whatever the heck you want!

    Love the fact that Multi-Targeting is going to be a thing; feels about time.  Also busted in quest hunter, and with Urchin Spines for a two minion K.O.

    This goes straight into Questline Hunter and it even damages your opponents face as well, which means that an existing filler card can be replaced. We are getting closer and closer to the perfect 30 cards for Questline Hunter in Wild.

    Arcane Shot with an conditional upside? Of course it sees play!

    Amazing card, and a Quest Hunter's new best friend. One of the top cards of the expansion for me.
