    This seems good alongside Multi-Strike. Also it's exactly the same as Ace Hunter Kreen, but Lady S'theno allows you to attack enemy minions for free after casting spells. Let's be honest, Ace Hunter Kreen was one of the worse legendaries in Scholomance, which was a VERY powerfull expansion, so seeing him powercrept isn't really that surprising. I'm glad they decided to make this powercrept reprint more board based though, and DH actually has to cast a bunch of spells in order to clear the board. So it still takes a lot of work in order to remove stuff. I really like this card, just because it actually takes a bunch of recources in order to take full advantage of Lady S'thenos effect. 

    In which decks does this slot into though? I'm not sure. I think that maybe Fel DH might slot this into their deck, or experiment with it. Also maybe there is some more support in this set, which has not been shown yet. After all, there still are 6 DH cards unrevealed. So maybe it has some really strong support that we haven't seen yet...

    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.

    The best thing about this card is that it allows you to play spells while having this card essentially dealing with the board. Meaning you'll hit face more often, and taunts are less effective against you.

    Too bad that its effect seemingly implies that it'll also hit your minions. Meaning its only ever going to be in control or combo.

    One last thing it can do; it allows you to refresh your kurtrus hp with spells. But the 3 mana investment hurts it somewhat, and you still need your opponent to have a board of course.

    Edit: If it can hit face, this card is just completely OP. In quest dhunter, you can just draw your entire deck and destroy them from 30 straight up. No taunts can stop this thing. I guess an overcompensation for the loss of Immolation Aura and Il'gynoth? Either way, this card is nearly an auto include into most decks, if not all.

    Very strong as long as there's cheap spells for Demon Hunter. Could easily see this in Quest Demon Hunter (assuming that deck sticks around in some capacity)

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    It says enemy not enemy minions so yes to face. Thankfully Acrobatics and Double Jump are rotating out so questline DH might not be too oppressive later as long as they don't print another broken draw spell.

    This legendary will be a menace to token/aggro decks if it turns out to be good. Lady S'theno could slot into Fel or Quest DH as both decks run a lot of spells. And with Immolation Aura rotation, DH needs some tools to remove small minions. Also good that you know which enemy it'll attack, so you can setup some nice removal with Fel Barrage too.

    You can also guarantee she will keep hitting face when against spell based decks like Quest Mage.

    Excited about this legendary, definitely fair and balanced

    Interesting - and seems very strong! Also if the enemy board is clear she goes face everytime you play a spell right ?

    With Questline DH reducing the costs of your spells, I can see this being a really solid inclusion to most DH decks

    Fun combo for Demon Hunter with cheap spells to either clear the board or push extra damage to the opponent's face. Good for board control in the mid-game, or as away to find lethal near the end. Flexible, cheap, should be a good card.

    I have spoken.

    Demon Hunter spells are annoying. This could be scary.

    Seems good. Even if it only survives one turn, it shouldn't be hard to get 2-3 procs which is enough value by itself.

    This looks like it could be good at keeping your opponent's boards clear. Even if it doesn't kill what it attacks in one hit, it won't lose any health, so you can just keep playing spells.

    This has the potential to be very oppressive - looking forward to try all bunch of Naga-combo DH

    Only a S'theno deals in absolutes.

    Could be very powerful with DH's access to cheap spells, though DH doesn't really have a Sorcerer's Apprentice to go with this Flamewaker, and there's not a whole lot of minion buffs available to DH .

    Very poweful with a lot of 1 cost spells of Demon Hunter, and with questline is a very dangerous otk

    I don't think it will ever reach OTK levels as some people claim, but it will be a strong card for a midrange naga focussed demon hunter.  Works exceptionally well with the new Predation for cheap easy clears.

    Amazing tool against aggro, and it can actually hit face too! I really like the concept behind this card, specially when paired with cheap spells like Multi-Strike!
