This Soul Hunter meta better allow the Fragments to be shuffled back in, otherwise the best draw cards are useless.
Very strong, but it won't make the cut some of the time unlike the other fragment cards. I said the same in Malicia's review, I think there will be some lists that forego the control cards and just make an aggressive list with the bare minimum fragment cards for the aggressive payoff in lapidary. I don't think those lists will run this, but we'll have to wait and see.
Looks kinda average to be honest. Demon Hunter already has plenty of ways to deal with smaller boards. They also don't really have a lategame win condition so I don't see why you would run a dedicated control deck.
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
This is a bit better, if there ends up being a DH Control archetype with soul fragments this will surely find a home there.
Hellfire but for 1 mana less and you get a 3/2 minion. Yeah, I think this card is powerful enough to see play, it may even get nerfed to 4 mana.

Strong Control DH card. Will certainly see play, as long as Control DH works. Which i.m.o. is a small chance, considering Soulshard Lapidary and Marrowslicer will make aggro/tempo DH a terrifying force, and Shardshatter Mystic has 0 synergy with aggro/tempo DH.
Of course, I'd definitely play this in Fragment DH. 3 damage AoE on a 3/2 for 3 is insane.
Good if demon hunters ever need a board clear in a more midrange archetype, but this alone won't make that viable.
Not expecting this to see play, based upon reveals so far.
This post is discussing the wild format.
The down-vote is an 'I disagree' button, not an insult.
Interesting. A board clear. A way to regain board control back, after losing it against another aggro deck with better early game draws.

If control DH will be a deck, it will be because of this card. It's like a better Duskbreaker, which was insane.
Seems strong to me, the soul fragment cards seem good enough as well so control DH new meta?
3 mana Duskbreaker?
Edit: on second thought... THIS CARD IS INSANE.
There aren't a ton of cheap ways to generate Soul Fragments, so this may not go off on curve. That said, Duskbreaker is a 4-drop and it's great, so this doesn't need to go off exactly on curve to be really effective.
Looks kind of weird given how aggressive the other cards are looking, it’s good, but probably not what the deck would want
Who needs consistency when you could have fun?
So now Duskbreaker goes to DH town, this will be powerful if we can consistently shuffle soul fragment on the early impactful turns.
Strong addition to Demon Hunter. 3 Mana 3/2 is ok - but it´s kinda like Hellfire on a Stick. Because you not only deal 3 to all other minions you also get a 3/2 body.
Challenge me ... when you're ready to duel a god!
Probably just a decent highlander card, where losing early tempo isn't exactly uncommon, so this card can bring it back to you with a minion on board to boot.
3 damage is good. Had this been 2 damage instead it would straight up be unplayable.
Mandatory board clear for slower decks. Should be really important both in the early and later turns.
3 mana 3/2 is pretty bad for stats, although a Bloodfen Raptor that comes with a board clear does sound pretty nice.
Demon Hunter's board removal is also pretty weak, they're very reliant on using either their face or minions, and they sometimes can't compete with opponents who can swarm the board if they don't have Altruis the Outcast in hand.
So another board clear available to DH is what they need for any hopes of a control shell.
3 mana AOE is not bad, it's seen play with Hellfire, and instead of 4 mana that also deals damage to your opponent it only damages minions, letting you save your health for later.
This minion's only weakness aside from it's cost is the requirement of a soul fragment in your deck. If you haven't been able to place any fragments this is a weak minion that will do nothing to win you the game
In my opinion, if a control style DH is to emerge, it will be on the back of this card. Chaos Nova deals one more damage, but costs 2 more and doesn't leave a 3/2 behind. Even in tempo DH you can slap one copy in a Soul Fragment deck to tech against other tempo decks..
Rating cards on coolness factor rather than predicting power because I like screwing up rating averages (and because I suck at predicting real power levels, but we'll ignore that LUL)Golden portraits' progress (this will be easier to update after the new profile page goes live in-game):(19/Apr/20) Demon Hunter - 1; Druid - 548; Hunter - 589; Mage - 401; Paladin - 518; Priest - 338; Rogue - 337; Shaman - 557; Warlock - 480; Warrior - 483
