That's realy bad
the epic meme
The problem with this card is that it requires building your deck around it and the payoff is... Well it's pretty bad
Eh, its just a 3/4 that could possibly have some sort of synergy with cards like Dire Frenzy or any other methods of flooding the same minion type. Problem is the +3 attack isn't really anything to shout about, it doesn't seem to be worth the effort to enable it. There are also a bunch of 3 mana 3/4 to choose from now, each have their own ability that seems better than this.
Maybe Rogue can make it work? It curves into Shadow of Death.
Long, drawn-out Control Match-ups with Boardclears en masse and an unbelievable amount of greedy cards?
Sign me up!
Epic filler, useless in Constructed.
It’s a fair arena card that will occasionally have extra attack. It’s also a contender for being put into Battlegrounds, and I have no idea how good it would be there.
I don't see this achieving much.
Even if you went full Shuffle you can't play more than 3 a turn...at that point they're just worse Pogo Hoppers
Hunter technically has the ability to combine them with Tundra Rhino, but even then, you'd need the Rhino to stick before you can do anything with the birds.
The best I can come up with (only as a meme) is to Scarlet Webweaver the bird, then Hunting Party twice, play a Tundra Rhino and charge 4 0-cost ravens into your opponents face for big damage. Wouldn't be the first Hunter OTK that noone played because it takes too much work to set up.
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
Good vanilla stats but it's effect isn't as easy to pull off. Maybe in Hunter with Dire Frenzy with support from Tundra Rhino and such.
Cool but very hard to pull off!
I could imagine this seeing play just as a 3/4 beast. There's very little additional bonus required to make a 3 mana 3/4 playable.
meme. just like desert obelisk. also this doesnt feel like a very fun meme either
At max it's a decent card for arena I guess .
I'm sorry for my bad english :)
Battlegrounds card :P
Unless Blizzard prints a card like Faceless Manipulator that floods the whole board, this will only see little play. The effect is difficult to get value out of.
Well it's over
if you love the mega combo wombo meme decks, this is your choice
OK stats for 3 mana, on the arena I would pick this. Overall pretty weak, this passive ability is very rare to happen
At a vanilla base stat line, this is certainly interesting, but without rush or charge or something like that, it may be hard to capitalize on the effect. Maybe there’s a fun Rogue deck that could make this work.
Turn 6 Scarlet Webweaver
Turn 7 Hunting Party
Turn 8 if raven, 9 if rhino discounted Tundra Rhino + 3x Dread Raven = 20 from hand
This feels more useful in battleground or some meme deck where you otk with duplicate copies..
Big potential card.
Spider Tank stats are always good, it should be good even if you don't build your entire deck around this card. Maybe we'll finally see Ramkahen Wildtamer or Hunting Party being played? I can imagine someone pulling an OTK combo with this and Tundra Rhino.
Looks like a battlegrounds card rather than a hearthstone card, other than that it's a decent arena card, don't see this card doing anything.. they keep printing "if you have more copies of this card in the field" so it reminds me of Desert Obelisk.
anyway I think this card belongs to battlegrounds and somehow found it's way to actual hs.
Stats are good, the effect is nice, but the +3 attack is not a worthy payoff for the work you put in to duplicate this bird.
Never netdeck, craft Whizbang instead!
