    8 mana 16/16 rush seems balanced

    I do what I must, when I must. Know this well.

    If you manage to buff this prime, things get really ugly for your opponent. 

    The cost is high, but the reward is worth, in my opinion. 

    Some sort of dragon hunter with some beast synergies and just this beast in the deck maybe?

    Maybe add in Scarlet Webweaver and Tundra Rhino for some OTK business?

    Will Dire Frenzy be in, or rotated out?

    Dire Frenzy is Witchwood, so it's gonna leave Standard.

    But you might stay if you want  ;)

    Inconsistent as best. You'd want to buff Prime with Scavenger's Ingenuity but with two more beasts in the deck that becomes difficult

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    This thing is so good.. 5/5 seriously the base body isn't that bad either..

    quest hunter will really like this thing.. (there's no more Leeroy Jenkins in quest hunter though..).

    can't wait to play this and now the game will FINALLY be cheaper I might actually start crafting stuff.

    I wonder if this could be a new win condition for Quest Hunter seeing how Leeroy and Flark rotate so their reach is pretty much gone.

    If you can't beat em with Reach, beat em with value. With Nine Lives you can shuffle multiple ones into your deck and can also combo them with Ramkahen Roar for a 10-mana triple 6/4 with rush for multiple turns in a row.

    Basically do the old Scion build from Galakrond Warrior but for Hunter

    It is not inconsistent at all because you control exactly when you shuffle Prime into your deck. You can also play two copies of Ingenuity and even add Vargoth to double draw. So you can draw three buffed beasts. It is super consistent. Feels like a very easy 30dmg combo. Hard part is to survive until 8 mana.

    It's inconsistent because you have to wait to draw both Rhino and Webweaver before you can shuffle and set up and Hunter isn't exactly known for being good at that

    This works well with the Hunter "Handbuffs" and "Handcopy" cards, but at first sight it's comparable with Scion of Ruin, which makes prime  Zixor look way overpriced.

    Too bad the front half of this card is kind of weak.

    That said, you're probably still playing this in most hunters.

    while a 2/4 with Rush isn't ideal, I think with the help of cards like Diving Gryphon, Tracking and the new Scavenger's Ingenuity, you should be able to find the prime version easily enough for this card to be worth playing.

    Unlike other Prime generators, this has Rush so you can trade it immediately to guarantee the Prime version goes in your deck before your opponent can steal or silence.
