Could this be the winner card of this expansion?? Is there any DH or Hunter deck that won't include it?

I don't get why people hype this so much. the minions are really basic for 1-mana and it's not like they scale or anything.
RNG is also just like Animal Companion, meaning 1/3 of the time you migt just get screwed. Demon Hunter will run because they want 1-drops, but I don't see what Hunter would do with it that isn't also accomplished by more consistent cards
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
Great stand-alone 1-drop for both classes. Sure, it'll suck to get Kelok, but it's not that far off from Battlefiend, and the other two options are insane on turn 1, which are both 1 mana discounts on Bluegill Warrior and Frostwolf Grunt.
For glory, honor, and gold!
Good value for the cost, my only problem is that it is too similar to animal companion, I would have prefer different minions with different abilities, like posion, lifeasteal and deathrattle, or whatever.
Strong, but unreliable. A nearly-always strong 1-drop is probably worse than a consistently great 1-drop like battlefiend or squire.
This is probably less good for aggressive hunter decks, where beast synergy is very important.
This post is discussing the wild format.
The down-vote is an 'I disagree' button, not an insult.
Unreliable, but you always get something pretty strong. Really strong in tempo decks and anything that focuses on board presence, so this will almost definitely see play in one of the two classes.
So you are getting an animal companion like spell for 1 mana.. there are some 1 drops that are weaker thna this like the vanilla 2/2 that sees play.. I guess it will be tested not sure if it will replace that card.
Pretty good for any DH/Hunter deck. Hunters like playing Animal Companion just for the 1/3 chance for Huffer, so i don't see why they won't play Demon Companion for a cheap 2/1 with charge. Solid tempo card that will see plenty of play.
Nice t1 play for both classes and kinda for any deck archetype out there. I guess we will see a whole lot of this card in the upcoming months.

This card will be a staple 1-drop in both Hunter and Demon Hunter for ever from now on. 5 star card. love it.

Hard to have an opinion without seeing the companions... but a 1-drop is a 1-drop and cheap spells could always be of use for spellbursts etc.

They are mini-versions of hunter companions - 2/2 taunt, 2/1 charge, 1/2 give all minions +1 attack.
Could be decent, though it is competing against the 1 drops of both other classes, which might just be better than this
Who needs consistency when you could have fun?
What a cheep, useful, and strangely adorable card you are.

This card is neat and has pretty good value. I like how it plays off Animal Companion, but I wish it wasn't just exactly a scaled down version. I mean, there are so many other abilities like Rush and Lifesteal they could have used.

Animal Companion sees play, and what you're getting here is half the stats for a third of the mana cost. Sounds pretty good.
Fine card, will see experimentation for sure. Not 5 stars busted crazy or anything like that, but you won't be sad to slot a copy of it into a highlander deck.
Stupidly enough, its the leokk lookalike that will likely be the best outcome of this card. Whether this sees any play will depend on whether both sides are going token. From the looks of the card set, it seems like theres more than a little support to push token dhunters this time round.
Blazing Battlemage is already one of the more common 1 drop, and this one more or less gives you that, except 66% of the time it will give you something better past turn 1.
But I still think its real power is more achieved through a token deck.
This will be just like Animal Companion but toned down to 1 mana. We have a precedent so, nuff said.
