seems like a meme to me.. inspire hunter? the other cards are stong but you are not gonna run this one I think since the card is kind of too slow while tryign to do something fast.. that being said, face hunter/odd hunter could really use this card in wild maybe.
Seems pretty good with Zul'jin; you usually float some mana if you're running an aggro deck so it doesn't have to be run in a spell centric deck either.
so we're going back to face Hunter or what? I don't hate it, but I thought we moved past the time when all Hunter was doing was press the button and hit face
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
looks like Quest support.
Feels weak. "Inspire" Hunter will have to be much stronger than I'd guess it will be for this to see play. If we still had 2/1 Leper Gnomes, then I'd worry a bit more about it.
It's not even that good with the Vault Quest, because that deck wants to spend its mana playing minions, not hitting the hero power button.
Yeah. It's completely messed up. If you want to go face, you will spend your mana on minions, not on hero power. And also you won't bother running a side quest. In the end, running a mid-range deck with some inspire stuff would be just a meme...
But we need to see the other unrevealed cards and what the meta will look like
The golden animation of this card will probably be sick :O
Could see play in Wild Odd Hunter
Gosh dang it, cards bad.
I find it funny that this would probably be a better card if it just dealt 6 damage to face instead of summoning leper gnomes. At the stage of the game where' you're using hero power turn after turn to close out the game, you typically can't afford to wait one extra turn to cash in the leper deathrattles. I get what the designers were going for but this is just too slow and gimmicky to be playable as a 'nuke'.
This is a mediocre filler at best. Except if they print a card that says "turn all your leper gnomes into mountain giants".
Meme OTK in WIld:
Play this, get to two HP uses before turn 10.
2 mana HP to summon the three gnomes, 4 mana Necromechanic, then 2 mana Feign Death x2 = 10 mana & 26 dmg.
With EITHER coin or Emperor Thaurissan hitting literally any one piece of the combo, you can add in 1 Play Dead for full OTK.
I want to like it, but I can't. Too slow for what it does. aggro wants to be faster.
However, I can say that it has a saving grace: Questing explorer. I can see a midrange aggressive deck that makes use of this quest and the card draw of Questing explorer as a possible good deck, if not now, after rotation. Time will tell.
more "face is the place" cards for hunter...feelsbadman
So here is why leper gnome was nerfed back in the day :D
Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!
I don't aggro, and that is what the card seems intended for. Would not have looked out of place way back in the day, though, before Leper Gnome was nerfed.
If you have the time, you should totally check out our weekly Hearthstone card design competitions! :D
This is just a bad card. Unless hunter gets some playable card that allows you to use your hero power multiple times in a turn then this quest can only be activated (at least) 3 turns after being played. The leper gnomes will do at least 6 damage, which isn't bad later in the game, but I feel like there is a small window of opportunity where you can play this in a mid-range hunter and it is a good play. Top-decking this later in the game will probably get you killed, and you don't want this to take the place of your 1/2 drop. But when played at just the right time it will be a solid way to apply pressure to your opponent, and if you happen to have Houndmaster Shaw on the field, all of those 1/1's will have rush.
Carrion, my wayward grub.
Quite a slow card, but this might be better as a late-game card. With Blackwald Pixie, you can at least finish the quest in two turns and utilize Dragonbane or Goblin Bomb for more damage. In wild, this card might fit in Hunter decks using [Hearthstone Card (Baku, the Mooneater) Not Found], Genn Greymane, or Auctionmaster Beardo, to name a few Hero Power-themed cards
Well it's over
Ohh this is going to be the Epic card that I will open 9 copies of while needing to craft some useful ones. Not necessarily trash, but I don´t see this one working in a serious deck
Kinda slow I don't think the 6 mana in 3 turns isn't worth the 2 mana worth of bodies. but hey SMOrc
