    What Alleycat should have been in the first place.

    Main issue is that there'S just not enough handbuffing in Hunter to consider this anything other than just Alleycat.

    Good for Quest Hunter at least.

    If only they nerfedStonetusk Boar instead of Scavenger's Ingenuity

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Technically slightly better alleycat. Alleycat doesn't see play much right now, so I can't imagine that this will, unless handbuffs become suddenly viable in hunter.

    This post is discussing the wild format.

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

    handbuff is still a thing in hunter, and it's just 2/2 for 1.. quite solid anyway.. will see play regardless of handbuff.

    Don't feel like there's a ton to say tbh.  It's a bit powercrept Alleycat and good in Quest Hunter, but its almost a reprint of Alleycat and only better in some niche scenarios.

    Okay in standard: RIP Scavenger's Ingenuity. (Why didn't they just HOF or nerf Stonetusk Boar instead) Scavenger's Ingenuity into Wolpertinger seems really good. Will see play in some kind of handbuff tempo hunter deck i guess? probably quest hunter as well. Maybe quest hunter will use a handbuff package because of this?

    WILD: Well this is terrifying if this get's discovered from Deathstalker Rexxars heropower. Also R.I.P. Alleycat and Tabbycat you two were the cutest, but now replaced by a card that can copy stat buffs. R.I.P.

    Alleycat reincarnated! Fantastic card for Hunter, has a beast tag and can be buffed. Will definitely see play.

    At it's base it is an Alleycat, a decent and fair card. With Shan'do Wildclaw it is a pair of 2/2s, with Scavenger's Ingenuity it is a pair of 3/3s, with Deathstalker Rexxar it is just nuts.

    I love this card because it is playable at it's base, but with synergy it becomes very impactful while still not feeling too powerful.

    Nothing too amazing (aside from the Deathstalker thing), but handbuff isn’t really that great usually, so a card that would really want that might not be too good

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    With some luck Alleycat will still be played in decks that don't have handbuffs just for being too cute.

    I can see that this replaces Alleycat in Battlegrounds.

    It's a better Alleycat, but rn Hunter doesn't have much Pay-Off for early Beasts (If I remember correctly, the Reason why Alleycat was so good, was because Crackling Razormaw was good) . There's Scavenging Hyena, Fresh Scent and that's it.

    Long, drawn-out Control Match-ups with Boardclears en masse and an unbelievable amount of greedy cards?

    Yeah, like others have said, Alleycat but better because of handbuffs. Play your cards right, and you can Tundra Rhino your way to an OTK with this. Plus it's freaking adorable!

    Alleycat was a good card that saw play. This is a card that's pretty much strictly better, therefore it will see play.

    Did you handbuff this? Not a problem, it's good when you do.

    Maybe lore aficionados can clarify what exactly is this thing. Looks like cat-bird-deer thing that came straight from the last guardian.

    Its powercreep on Alleycat, and it sports a very powerful effect. Even if it doesnt, alleycat has seen play for ages, so there's no reason to expect this not to.

    If you can buff this big enough it can even finish the game with Tundra Rhino, but that's a long shot.

    Alleycat with buff upside. Highlander Hunter would like to have this on turn 1 or as a 1 mana 6/6 with Scavenger's Ingenuity. Seems like a natural fit into most Hunter decks.

    For glory, honor, and gold!

    Did someone call for a lore expert? (bows). At your service. 

    A Wolpertinger is a creature from Germanic folklore said to live in alpine forests in southern Germany. In Warcraft, they are small creatures who are only seen during the holiday of Brewfest-- WoW's version of the Germanic Octoberfest-- and are attracted to the scents of festivities. They can only be seen by people who are drunk and can be obtained as pets for players during the holiday in September.

    of course it is. I expect nothing less.

    Thanks for the lore. Now tell me what do those few sober people see when you're taking this pet for a walk after a nice talk with a bottle of whiskey?

    There is no lore on that, but I'm guessing that either the capture and domestication of one could possibly make them more generally visible, or people just see a drunk person with an imaginary friend.
