Well, this card seems awesome. Its a Town Crier that draws itself, works are decent removal in a class lacking removal, has a beast tag, and just seems great. The only reason this doesn't see play is if Dragon Hunter becomes the only deck and doesn't have room for this.
To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of the women.
Yes, I would play a Shadowbolt that draws a card in the class with the worst card draw. Potentially interesting combos with Dire Frenzy? Just a super strong card completely on its own aside from the beast synergy.
3 mana deal 4 damage cantrip. Nice!
Hunter does have a lot of strong rush cards, but not so many good rush minions that can be drawn unlike warrior with Town Crier. The better rush minions that do see play in hunter decks are Springpaw and Zilliax, though Diving Gryphon is good on its own and should be considered as a good rush minion for Hunter.
This could see play in a big beast hunter deck that is running Diving Gryphon and Master's Call to draw your big rush beasts such as Amani War Bear and Oondasta.
Even if such a deck doesn't work, the card is still great. It has beast synergy, it draws itself or another important rush minion, it helps the sidequest Clear the Way and it is a decent 4 damage removal for 3 mana.
More dragons? Yes please!
Shadow Bolt for comparison.
This gryphon is pretty good.
Not a powerhouse, but a solid inclusion, especially for Highlander.
This is surprising in a good way, and on top of all that was already said before me, it allows Hunters to cycle a little more through their decks, which is worth mentioning. Bonus : I'm predicting a cheesy Diving/Pool flavor text - could be wrong
“One day, you will be old enough to start reading fairytales again.”
Even if they don't print any exciting new rush minions for Hunter, just thinning the Springpaws from your deck is already a huge advantage. Sign me up!
Seems great, card draw in hunter is kind of premium and this doesn't lose you tempo while you do it, synergy with the side quest, master's call, spring paw zilliax, itself.. This card is awesome.
I like this card.
Specific card draw, removal, and beast synergy.
In addition, supports the quest Clear the Way.
Tutor-cards are always very strong, especially in a class that has wak card draw.
Btw it's similar to Ursatron: a tutor that can draw itself.
Long, drawn-out Control Match-ups with Boardclears en masse and an unbelievable amount of greedy cards?
Sign me up!
Impacts board which is nice. It's like a shadowbolt. AND ITS DRAW. Draw in Hunter = ALWAYS good.
Removal, beast, card draw. Everything what a hunter needs.
Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!
It's gonna be great in Quest Hunter
Springpaw, Hogsteed and Zilliax are enough to make this consistent, and Quest Hunter likes draw a lot.
It'S basically an early Huffer when you need it. If only we had a suitable substitue for Leokk
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
Card draw in a Hunter is the only good thing about this card. I am not convinced...
this card seems awesome
removal, draw engine, beast tag
it fits in every hunter deck i guess
Card is fine, nothing special compared to the power creep of the expansion we've seen so far. but removal and draw is nice for Hunter.
This is a very solid card. It basically functions like a Wing Blast that draws you another rush minion. Also, the side quest just got some help!
It's not gonna stick, but that's hardly its intention :)
I believe it's a solid card. Not great. not garbage. Good battlecry and decent removal.
Seems like this should be quite powerful for Hunter.
Card draw for Hunter is extremely valuable, this only draws Rush minions but that can also be seen as a positive as it will help control the board early on. Has great synergy with Clear the Way , should make this quest very easy to complete.
This is a good card, specially for control decks, but I still don't think there's exist such deck in the "hunter world".
I'm sorry for my bad english :)
Pretty good Dire Frenzy target.
On balance, this is a pretty solid card. 3 mana deal 4 is fair, and draw a card is great, especially in Hunter. Throw in Scavenging Hyena synergy and you’ve got the makings of a huge tempo play.
Great rush stats for 3 mana, and you get to draw another rush card.
