    Okay, someone at Blizzard really adores hunters. Dual class legendary +1/+1 to all beasts in deck, then dual class legendary immune to all attacking chars and now poison spells, hello Rapid Fire

    Wow, pretty strong card! Rapid Fire will find more play than before. Also Spells like Arcane Shot can now be utilized for removal not only for weak minions :)

    Goddamn, that's a strong one.

    Rapid Fire is absolutely nuts with this. It's basically 5-mana for double Assasinate...and we haven't even seen any support for this from this expansion yet.

     

    This is a legit comeback tool for any slow Hunter deck. Is this perhaps finally the time of combo hunter?

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Okay it's not too late isn't it, finally got chance to put my Arcane Fletcher to work. Slate is quite flexible i suppose, but maybe he is intended to run in spell heavy deck or sth.

    Not an amazing card, just because hunters don't run that many damaging spells that they want to point at minions, and this one synergy card is not enough to change that on its own.

    It this does see play, I doubt it will be in any aggressive hunter decks, but maybe midrange hunters need hard removal so much that they are willing to run this?

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    Whoah, this is a very creative card. Rapid Fire is now a 2x Assasinate. Is this the rise of control/combo Hunter? I'm intruiged.

    Hunter have no aoe spells, and not many damage spells are currently ran in standard, but this card is a reason to go that direction so.. We need to wait and see if this gets enough support.

    Hunters get AOE spells from time to time, it’s just usually stuff that hits 2 or 3 minions.

    Its hard to say how good this card actually is though, because there’s a good few small pings Hunter gets with its spells that were never quite good enough to run, and this makes them a lot better

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    its not really that good for hunter. I've always been skeptical about hunter cards that need something else to work, and when the end result is not really that great, I can't see any future for it.

    Such is this card, unfortunately.

    I can see a world where face hunters will run this as taunt removal so the rest of the other minions can go face. They already run Rapid Fire and Arcane Shot, so I see a possibility they can fit this in.

    This guy is evil. Looks very promising, in reality it’s probably one turn of board clears and then he’s gone. Still not bad at all.

    That's what I meant, hunter doesn't really have full board aoe spells the only ones he has are Explosive Trap and Deathstalker Rexxar one is wild and one will NEVER trigger with this card on board unless your opponent has negative iq.

    sure it makes most spell viable but this card is not enough to ditch the dragon package hunter currently uses and that package has one damage spell.

    A really good card. I am surprised. And now I kinda wonder which class will draw the short stick.
