    Pretty insane if you get the effect on curve, on turn 5 less so, but still good. Should be a mainstay in any Demon Hunter deck for the forseeable future.

    Also, yay shark.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Extremely good on turn 5, and also good if you have a weapon equiped on turn 4. Remember that Tuskpiercer, Lion's Frenzy and Dreadprison Glaive are still in standard. (Ignoring the possibility that a weapon is in the core set) So getting it activated on turn 4 is very possible. Also this really helps a bit more of a midrange DH deck survive against hyper aggro, which is always a good thing. And it goes face, so that's amazing as well. This is basically Consecration on a stick after you attack, and we all know that a Consecration effect is pretty strong.

    It seems like they are REALLY pushing some kind of control/midrange DH deck, which i like a lot! 

    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 only good enough to see some play, but I'd imagine its too costly to actually do more than clearing aggro boards. In most cases, it compares unfavorably to Felrattler, which comes out earlier and deals 4 damage to a single target.

    Definitely a card to consider though, given that dhunter has lost a lot of its AoE.

    This minion has some very strong synergies with DH weapons, and could slot in as an AoE seeing as how DH is losing most of its cheap AoE. The main problem I foresee with this minion is its mana Cost: remember, Shardshatter Mystic saw a ton of play in Soul Fragment DH back when it Cost 3, but when it got bumped up to 4 Mana it saw a huge downspike in playability. 4 is just a little too clunky, especially if you don't have a weapon set up beforehand. It's got a chance for Questline/Control DH, but I don't think faster decks would want it.

    I have spoken.

    Assuming DH still has some good weapon options on 3, this is an excellent card to have.

    Decent enough for board denial. Couples well with a discounted hero power.

    Five-star card. It's like a lesser Duskbreaker and Shardshatter Mystic, but with the upside of hitting face and only enemies. That effect is really easy to trigger as well; if you have a weapon equipped on 3 or a discounted hero power, you can play this on turn 4. But it's pretty good on turn 5 as well. Excellent board control tool with solid stats.

    I don't think this would be a bad play on turn 5 if the enemy board has a bunch of cheap minions on it.

    That's a cool looking card with a pretty neat effect. I bet Illidan will make the most of this one.
    All you need is a weapon, and you get a pretty sweet tempo play on T4

    Considering DH attacks "all the time" this is a solid minion and very fair as a 4 mana 4/3 which makes it easy to remove. If the stats were any higher, this minion with be OP. Most times you'll only get 1 trigger off this shark, but that might be enough of a board clear, especially for token decks.

    Turn three weapon into turn 4 this can seriously swing games.  Consecration + a 4/3 is great, and past turn 4 this works exceptionally well with DH's 1 mana hero power.  Strong card, especially if meta goes aggro.
