    Great 1-drop for a Beast Midrange Hunter

    Springpaw Replacement although not nearly as versatile. Will have to do for now though.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Pretty good 1 drop and a lot of synergy with the new hunter cards. Looking good.

    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.

    Great synergy with new secret Pack Tactics unless your opponent is Mage.

    A solid card for Beast Hunter, but that archetype will suffer a lot from losing Springpaw.

    Just not good enough. Since we're losing Master's Call there's no longer any reason to run a full beast deck. That means this poor thing will not likely see any play. I'd put Timber Wolf in front of it.

    I was expecting it to have charge ; it is probably better that way
    Helbacon, anyone?

    Great 1-drop, not so good later on. Will definitely see play in Beast Hunter.

    Reading the name and seeing the art, I thought this card will have Charge for some reason. 

    But I was kinda disappointed.

    Decent 1-drop in a midrange beast hunter list, but quite flimsy. I can see it seeing play for 1 expansion until we get a card like Springpaw, Dire Mole or Alleycat again.

    It's reasonable in the right Beast Hunter deck, but will such a deck exist in the Standard meta? I'm not sure. You definitely wouldn't want this card in a deck based around pulling and buffing specific Beasts; what if you accidentally hit this instead?

    Amazing card for it's cost. It seems that buffed minions will be a thing for hunter in the coming expansion.

    It's not rush, but it is a 2/1 for 1 and hunter like their aggressive minions. They'd have to go back to a beast build to really make use of this minion. Not sure that's the way they'll go.

    seems low impact kind of.. We didn't see this effect work on a battlecry but that minion wasn't a beast and it's 2 mana and not one.. so this might be good.. besides hunter just lost it's best 1 drop

    Just a decent 1-drop; the effect is ok, but the 1 hp is too low for aggressive deck

    Feel like Hunter Beast Decks are going to definitely be less aggressive and more burst/combo style.  All the handbuffs, Scarlet Webweaver... lots of potential.  I mean... Imagine buffing Zixor Prime up a bunch and having a 0 mana Tundra Rhino in hand thanks to the spider I mentioned.  Summon three BIG bois and Rhino gives them Charge.  DONE!

    Quick!  Someone give me something clever to write here.

    An acceptable 1-drop, but unless you need to accrue stats on a specific minion in hand to win, z.B. Charges or Some kind of Leoroxx combo this is probably worse than other 1-drops available to hunters. Potential to be okay to good in the right deck, but probably not.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    Solid 1 drop, contest the board, and make subsequent card better
