    Just when you thought Odd Hunter was meant to be a Facedeck!

    1 mana 1/3s were always busted and this gives you an upgraded mage hero power to contest the board with next turn as well. Bonkers.

    This seems good. Turn 1, play this. Turn 2, play a new minion , secret, or use your hero power to kill your opponent's minion. In fact, hero power + attack with this on turn 2 means you can take out a 3 health minion too.

    I mean...I absolutely love this, but it's also another 1-mana 1/3 and those are just always a problem.

    If you're playing a deck that wants to leverage early board presence and Hunter drops this on turn 1 you're basically fucked. Oh you mulligan for Flame Imp and went second? Guess you're gonna play the rest of the game trying to kill a 1-drop so you can actually develop a board.

    Although I am glad that there is now a 1-drop that challenges Northshire Cleric.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    and that card was an epic, this is a common. That means it is easier to test than the old one. :)

    And you know.. this is the aspect that annoys me the most in HS you can't test cool stuff (back then "control hunter") cause you need to invest so much dust into it.. back then if you wanted to start to test that card you had to pay 800 dust.. ye.. feels bad..

    I don't think this card is about testing.. you 100% drop it into your highlander hunter anyway and there are some other cards that care about hero powering so maybe that's a thing?

    Sure, it will be a must-have card for Highlander probably but I was about other archetypes ehm-Control Hunter-ehm. :D

    Maybe we can work to make that sidequest Hunter viable and this is a cool common 1 drop which is not epic. :D

    1 mana 1/3 is a busted statline and this card has a must-remove effect. The chance of this sticking to the board for one turn is much higher than the older sniper guy surviving into turn three, not to mention the fact that this naturally curves into a heropower on turn two rather than floating mana on turn three. It's easier to fit this in alongside a hero power as well.

     

    This card is going to be in pretty much every viable hunter deck.

    Pretty good - 1 drops with 1/3 stat line have alway been good so far!

    All 1-mana 1/3's have seen consistent competitive play except for Animated Berserker and Warbot.  And even Warbot saw some play just before it rotated out. And Berserker's effect is negative except in very niche scenarios.

    So, because this has a positive effect on that body almost certainly makes this a very competitive card.

    This card is pretty good. a 1/3 can make pretty good trades with other 1-2 drops, and with the extra 2 damage hunter should have no problem controlling the board through the first few turns.

    Fantastic 1-drop, will be an auto-include in any Hunter deck. Together with Springpaw, the Hunter class has gotten some good early-game removal.

    I was already running a control/grind out odd Hunter in Wild, this will give it some much needed strong early game. Can finally take out those Fireflies that were just in for consistency and mana efficiency.

    Wouldn't say that the effect was so great to make the card worth if it wasn't for the nice stats that are attached to it. With a possible good turn one play and a late game ping, this card might be one of the best for hunter thus far.

    This seems so situational. I can see this in Wild Odd Hunter, but beyond that very niche deck I don't see how it will fit into the current Hunter meta.

    1 mana 1/3 for hunter is scary enough. But with that effect it is crazy good.

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    Seems like an obvious auto-include to me, unless you just never want to use your Hero Power. 1/1/3 is a great statline, and the Hero Power is a better version of Fireblast.

    This is a very solid card. Probably auto-include in literally every hunter deck. Probably kinda busted.

    Great one drop for hunter. 1/3 one drops always have a potential to be well-hated by masses hahah
