    Not too shaby - board clear and refill in one card.

    They want to give control DH more love and the whole class some diversification I guess. Or maybe more support for the swarm variance.

    This card seems kinda insane. Yes, 7 Mana is a lot, but you are most likely getting plenty of 3/3s to refresh your board in the process.

    This card really shows they work 2 expansions in advance, when they had no idea how opressive dh would be :D

    Looks pretty good, especially given that expensive board clear’s weakness is usually that you can’t play anything else afterward

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    (7) is a lot for a card. Compared with Flamestrike, which only targets enemies and deals 4, this card seems suboptimal, even with the 3/3s flooding your board. However, this is Demon Hunter we're talking about. If there's one class that absolutely should not be allowed to have a wide board, it's them. Coupled with damage from weapons/buffs, this card could easily be a finisher for most games.

    Oh, also, with the cost reduction from the Skull of Gul'dan this costs (4)...

    Started playing HS in May, 2015. The bad news: I missed the excitement of 'Naxx out?' and GvG. The good news: I never met an Undertaker.

    7 mana is very expensive for a board clear, and this card only deals 3 damage to the board.

    If a slower demon hunter deck is viable, this card might just be worse than chaos nova, even though it gives you a board with the clear.

    Game winning in the specific situation of being played on turn 7 against a wide board, but you would probably be better of clearing the board a little earlier.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    Swings board for 7. Very scary used against aggro or token style decks.

    Also, given that the discover options are much more consistent in dhunters, getting this off vulpera scouldrel (and playing it in the same turn on 10), its just game winning sometimes.

    Very solid card for dhunter.

    Maybe this means Token DH isn't supposed to be played purely aggressively?

    Either way this is pretty strong. Just having another boardclear is a good argument for trying to run Control DH.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    That card looks amazing, you can destroy your weak 1/1 tokens and summon a 3/3 for each one... Then deal 3 damage to the enemies and, maybe, summon more 3/3.

     

    I see that card on a swarm/token deck, DH just need more "when friendly minion dies" support.

    7 mana gfor hellfire it's too slow if this is the card you are waiting for to clear the board but Chaos Nova exists, so maybe.. control DH hype?

    Probably requires a specific metagame, but it's amazing in that metagame.

    I find for 7 mana a lack of damage even though it does leave you a bit a board. 
    But even when adding thalnos, and that would cost 9 mana ignoring skull, there is not much to add for spell power in a DH control deck.

    Illidan on a bike made of fire and hatred. Regardless of Illidan's new bike seems pretty good for wiping boards and establishing one of your own. Since its all minions you could also combine it with that 3 mana illidari summon card to get some 3/3s if you're greedy enough.

    Only a fool thinks they know everything. I admit that I know nothing

    Well , this looks pretty interesting for some Control Demon Hunter - maybe even Highlander. Glad to see that they try to push other Archetypes and not just only aggro :) - even tough i like aggro

    I feel like this should be a warlock card, since its weaker than Flamestrike in terms of damage but it also damages your own minions. 

    But it refills your board, too, so even if you kill your own guys you'll still have the board, which makes it a strong control card.

    This card looks like an answer to sticky token decks or very aggressive zoo decks where the blades of Azzinoth (just 1 mana cheaper that does the same damage!) can't clear the board. 

    But against those decks you'd probably just rather run Altruis the Outcast and go off with him since not only does that CLEAR the board but damages your opponent as well, and it'll take about as much mana. 

    Maybe this card can make Netherandamus finally playable. 

    I mean probably not but I like him so I can hope.
