    2/3 + discover effect was strong enough, then it has both poisonous AND dragon tag seems quite insane to me.

    let's play it safe.. god tier in arena :)

    looks cool, although I'm not sure how valuable discovering dragons is without the class discovery bonus.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Kind of meh. But because it combines two decent effects might make it corner case playable. Not sure if Dragon Hunter will be a thing, but obviously if it is, this card goes there.

    Yeah, not being able to consistently discover Emeriss hurts.

    But it's still decent because of poisonous, so I guess it's fine.

    this could be broken if the class discovery bonus still prevail... Emeriss could finally shine

    This is my Most Underestimated card right now. Statline + poison is great on its face, plus discover might give you Emeriss or Carrion Drake or any of the other really great-looking Dragons out already. Can't wait to build my Poisonous Dragon Hunter deck!

    These explorers are just great. Carry the dragon decks, and good on their own.

    Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!

    All these dragon explorers seem really good in arena, but not so impressive in constructed. Usually discover effect are either used in control decks, or when the outcome is relatively predictable (tracking, shadow visions, primordial glyph). So we either get more dragon synergy for hunter or this will only see play in highlander, especially after rotation.

    Poisonous with draw a card is good.

    Not bad, though I´m not sure if it makes the cut. However, great pick in Arena, I´d say

    A annoying minion that gives more fuel for hunter? Sounds good to me.

    Poor Emperor Cobra, outclassed by a hunter "dragon" even though it was a beast.

    If class bonus still applied to discover, this would be really good with the new dragon lackey.

    A better Emperor Cobra, will see play for sure. Looks like every deck is receiving dragon support and I love it!

    I'm sorry for my bad english :)

    As far as revealed class Dragons go, this seems to be on the lower end of that bracket. Poisonous is niche, but discovering a Dragon is pretty strong. Might see play in Highlander decks, with or without a Dragon theme.

    Poisonous dragon hunter smells like they're trying to push some kind of control hunter. Maybe the idea is to finish the game with some kind of Emeriss and Hunting party, King Krush combo... might be fun

    Not a bad minion, it is a half decent 3 drop, though I am not very sure that it will be very threatening, maybe at best it can act as a 5/3, but I don't think your opponent will every let you punch a 6 health minion with this guy. 

    Though the fact that it is a dragon and will also discover you a dragon means that you can play a dragon and still have dragons in your hand to trigger all of your dragon cards. Also, it is 2 cards in one, the dragon you discover will 90% of the time be a relevant later in the game. The success on this card depends solely on whether or not you care about dragons. If you do, then great, it is 2 dragons in one card and can sometimes be a relevant poisonous minion. But is not, I just don't think it will be able to apply enough pressure to warrant inclusion in non-dragon decks.

    First rule of the English language: Their our know rules.

    I like it, I just don't think Dragon Hunter will be a thing.

    Emperor Cobra with a Dragon tag and a value based effect seems insane. Its probably not that impactful to wild, because the dragon pool larger and worse, and the stats/tempo of things have to be totally insane, but I think in terms of raw value for standard and arena this seems like its the nuts.

    To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of the women.
