    So .. it gets better as the game progress, so it is most likely only a (1) dmg battlecry, when played on curve ...
    Do we know how much can it scale? Is there a cap to the dmg dealt?

    The cool part is mostly that it can hit whatever you decide, even your own face, if you'd like!

    Very flexible. Can be removal early on or a finisher later (probably worth running with Brann).

    Also gives you a reason to run Candleshot

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Alright here's the thing. The conditions for this card is woeful. Basically you have to run Candleshot or this thing does little to nothing and would be better be replaced by cards like Frenzied Fangs, Spirit Poacher, etc.

    But because of its potential, cheap cost, and the fact that the conditions are manageable somewhat, you'd probably just play it along with 2x candleshot anyway. Even at 3 shots, being branned out this thing deals 8 damage for 2 mana, and that's a finisher if ever I saw one.

    Probably not going to a XL deck though. You'll want to draw candleshot, this card, and brann consistently and you can't risk it on an XL deck. Face hunter comeback maybe? Because we're still missing the second half of the reveals and its likely something to do with burn (Arcane Quiver has no targets revealed yet)

    Well, this can go face and scale indefinitely depending on how many weapons you'd want to run. Wouldn't be surprised if there's a brann OTK with this minion but you'd definitely need a lot of turns to set it up. Would have to see if the new meta with DK would be slow enough for this to be effective.

    Pretty good. Hunter has plenty of weapons, and if you turn 1 Candleshot + attack, you can turn 2 attack with Candleshot into deal 3 damage Shockspitter. You probably want to hold this card until you find Brann Bronzebeard though for a lot of SMOrc damage. This seems pretty good thanks to that scaling.

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    Hunter might have enough good weapons to make this work. I don't recall seeing Candleshot much lately, perhaps that will even come back.

    2 for a 2/2 is meh at best.  BUT, if you're attacking, then this is going to be a mean beast(pun intended).  The idea that you draw this late game to take out a gnarly taunt minion or even an "evasive" minion is great.

    Decent baseline, could be used for combos, or just played as is.

    Great art, great effect, honestly think it's one of the best cards of the new set.
