    Wow, this card sure is... bad? Am I missing something?

    The base form is utter trash, while the Infused form requires you to have a crowded board (which means you're already winning) in order to obtain an upside. Seems like a win more card to me.

    The only reason why this card isn't that small bonbon on a dunghill is because its a 6/5 for 5 with (mostly anyway) rush. Sometimes, just sometimes it allows you to make value trades with your other beast or outright kill the opponent.

    But so many hurdles, beginning with the idea that hunters can actually keep a board of beasts ready when this comes out. Then you need to infuse it or this requires additional support to do anything at all. Then, insidiously, you need a target for this to throw itself into. And finally its a fucking 5 mana card.

    Stormwind Piper is a smaller version of this, costs 3 and have 6 health meaning it'll likely survive the turn its played on curve. And that card saw no play. This card being a beast helps, but not enough in my books.

    Just seems way too clunky. Even in Rat Hunter this probably won't be consistent enough to run and Rat Hunter is an unplayable deck.

    I don't know why they would limit the Infuse to Beasts on this one specifically

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.
