    that's a lot of stats for very little mana. Not really anything beyond that, but I think that's good enough.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Not great, but not terrible.

    This is +1 mana on nerubian egg for +1 attack, which lets you trade it more easily, but deathrattle hunter decks would much rather have the egg in play a turn earlier.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

    The down-vote is an 'I disagree' button, not an insult.

    reminds me of Devilsaur Egg / Nerubian Egg sticky deathrattle but this doesn't even need synergy it can pop itself..

    there was that card.. 4 mana 1/1 that summoned a 5/5 but 3 mana is much cheaper than 4.. really playing 3 cost cards is just much easier.

    Has a decent home in deathrattle themed decks and in Quest Hunter, so I suspect this card will see at least some amount of play.  Neither of those decks are especially strong right now, so its hard to say whether or not this set gives them enough support to make them strong enough.

    Part of me says this is a lot better than the eggs since it has an attack value and so you can trade with it and get the big stats, another part of me says this is worse than the eggs since it has an attack value and so your opponent knows it will die and trade into it and not let you pull off your deathrattle shenanigans.

    It is fairly slow, but if you are able to trigger it at least twice it is enough stats to justify running.

    Lot of stat's for cheap, and it naturally fit's after a turn 2 Pack Tactics. Seems really good for deathrattle hunter. Also this can be looked at as "a egg card that has stat's", and Hunters love egg-like cards. Good synergy with Teron Gorefiend as well, just in case you have a big board. Also if your opponent doesn't deal with it, you can copy this turn 4 with Mok'Nathal Lion to make Mok'Nathal Lion even better. Super solid card for deathrattle hunter. Wish Kripp had better draw during the reveal stream, otherwise we might have be thinking differently about this card.

    Just reminds me more of that Karazhan card that summoned the 3/2 when it died than an egg, and that card was only ever decent

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    Don't you guys miss the part that this card has a minion tag as "Beast" ? Of course this card is better than eggs. You can tutor it with Scavenger's Ingenuity at the very least.

    Curves nicely from Pack Tactics into Mok'Nathal Lion.

    An egg that can attack seems really good to me, though the overall stats aren't necessarily better than some other options. Serpent Egg is more mana efficient, but this is a beast to begin with. I think it will be good.

    It's like a Nerubian Egg that can attack without extra help needed, but it costs 1 more. It's also a Beast, so it seems pretty good.

    its Devilsaur Egg, and I'm very happy. Been trying to make deathrattle hunter work in standard so this goes straight in it. Better than serpent egg for sure, since hunter doesn't have any way to pop the egg. This one doesn't need popping and that's a major plus in hunter.

    With Carrion Studies, this can get out on 2, and straight into Teron Gorefiend on 3. Just a good deathrattle card for any occasion.

    Hunter can use the lion to get use of the deathrattle and thus gain a lot of stats and board presence. This will definitely see play.

    I like it - good stats overall for 3 Mana. Also nice to play in combination with different cards like Pack Tactics for example. 

    This will see play!

    More deathrattle synergy for hunter, tbh i like it even if i don't think this is strong enough.

    3 mana for 1/2 of stats is pretty bad. getting a 4/4 out of it makes it better, but you'll want to have a strategy in mind when running this minion.

    Hunter's hand buff cards, Felboar, Scavenger's Ingenuity and Scrap Shot can make this minion MUCH better, 3 mana 2/4 have seen play, and 3/4 for 3 is very good, 4/5 for 3 mana is the best outcome. 

    This minion's deathrattle effect also gives it a strong synergy with Hunter's new card carrion studies, which can discount this minion's cost by (1), allowing you to play Carrion Studies on turn 1, and then this on turn 2. 

    If you're wanting to play this with an egg deck you'll want Teron Gorefiend in your deck as well as a way to not just activate it but to resummon it with +1/+1 along with other sticky death rattle minions. 

    aside from that, you can also play Houndmaster on curve following this minion to give it +2/+2 and taunt so that your opponent is forced to throw a minion at it and activate it's deathrattle. 

    But at 3 mana Midrange Hunter's 3 mana slot is already full with cards like Animal Companion, Kill Command, Zixor Apex Predator and EagleHorn Bow or Stormhammer. It might not be able to fit in this deck unless you're aiming for cheap beasts.
