    Not much of a Druid player myself, but I assume someone will learn how to abuse this fairly quick.

    It's probably gonna be some key for a new OTK deck, but I don't think it's Gonk.

    I bet the flavor text is going to be a meta joke about HS decks or something like that. Team 5 always makes jokes like that, and the opportunity is right there.

    No, that's wrong!

    Perfect Gonk fuel, I can not wait to try out my old OTK deck. I have a feeling this card my prove to be quite rage inducing...

    Insane. Cheap, versatile, lots of value, Gadgetan synergies... It also fits nicely in Quest druid, definetely will see play.

    Goes great with my custom expansion's Druid set, which is all about attacking with the hero. I'm slightly annoyed that you are given three copies of Claw, when generally speaking a Druid only fights with two claws lol.

    That's a lot of words to say that the card is fine.

    3 mana for 6 attack and 6 armor once you completed the sidequest (which will be completed very easily - I'm legit surprised they only require 2 hero attacks to trigger). I see people already talking about Gonk Druid coming back, but even without him that has some real burst potential. Heck do the sidequest twice and on 10 mana you can have 12 hero dmg plus another 4 off Swipe plus 2 more from double Moonfire = 18 total dmg assuming no spell dmg buff - nothing to sneeze at...

    If this sees play I expect it'll mainly be as a source of cheap spells for gadget.

    Excuse me, but you can clearly see *4* claws on each paw on the card art. So if anything, they should give you one EXTRA to be consistent...

    Interesting card. Could this be the return of some Miracle type of Druid (maybe Mecha'thun)? Gonk is still around and combo's nicely with this card. I think this is one of the beter sidequests revealed so far.

    This is really solid in a Gonk Druid deck, but it's hard for me to see that being a thing right now. Quest Druid is just so powerful, and you'd never run a card like this in Quest Druid because of how quickly you'd lose the base hero power.

    FWIW, I'm glad they're providing support for an archetype that sees no play, and that doesn't just slot into the best current archetype for the class. All too often these support tools either see no play or find their way into the best archetype and leave the "supported" one on the shelf. Maybe this will be enough to make Gonk a real fighter.

    not sure how good this card is.. I mean 4 mana 6/6 attack/armor to hero.. that's bite.. you add to hand 3 cards that are not being run in a deck...

    but on the other hand.. gadgetzan auctioneer is a card so it might be relevant for that reason.. I don't see it though.

    Nice early game but needs to fit into the deck such as a gonk one as others mentioned

    I know that this allows you to get 6 potential damage, but outside of an combo deck (or Gonk 'till rotation), is it that useful?
    The best side to these side quests I can see thus far is that they allow you to use questing explorer for card draw, outside a main quest deck.

    Interesting, the requirement quite easy to execute even when you topdeck this. I can see it being played in different decks (especially gonk if it becomes viable).

    I wonder if you would run this card in a deck that wants cheap spells to cycle with, feel like druid already has enough but who knows.

    This is a cool card. Claw isn't super powerful on its own, but 3 of them is something, even in a deck that isn't focused on slamming a bunch of attacks with Gonk. It can just be good in a control style deck as it gives you cheap armor and flexible attack. I think this is generally just better than it looks.

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

    Can be useful for some combo decks or something like this, and the condition is so easy to complete so it's nice anyway.

    I'm sorry for my bad english :)
