    Decent with Guardian Animals, but I don't think it will make the cut.

    The ideal scenario for this is to pull it off of Guardian Animals, but I don't think that spell will be very good in the upcoming meta. Not having a way to immediately activate the cleave makes this minion so much weaker as well.

    For glory, honor, and gold!

    It seems that druid is the only viable class to put this in. Without handbuffing or pulling this from your deck you don't really want to play this i think.

    Meant to be used with Guardian Animals, as shown on stream. I just don't think that's enough.

    Thats like double the stats from Cave Hydra so I'd call it a powercreep

    You know, this might not be horrible in duel paladin. Pull this, hopefully destroy the enemy minion and their right-most one, plus it's a midgame body to play that could luckily clear the board if played with Wave of Apathy.

    Nah, not that good.

    The only reason this might see play is because of Guardian Animals, but I don't think it's the best beast to combo with it so I don't think it will see much play.

    Will probably see play with Guardian Animals, but that's about it. In fact, without this card, I'm not sure Guardian Animals is playable.

    Outside of big beast Hunter/Druid, I don't see this ever being relevant.

    4/6 are okay stats for 5 mana, and this minion is probably really strong in the arena.

    That said, it's a little slow in standard, since your opponent will have a turn to either remove it or arrange taunts so it doesn't clear 3 minions.

    It works VERY well with the Guardian Animals spell Hunters and Druids have, summoning this and another 5 mana best from your deck and giving them rush, allowing you to use it's cleave ability on the turn it hits the board.

    Druids will be able to buff the minion in deck with Embiggen to make it a sturdy 6/8 for 5, and Hunter's draw spell Scavengers ingenuity grants +2/+2 also if drawn, and scrap shot can make this a 7/9 if played on curve.

    Nice cleave effect for arena.

    Tried in different sizes and classes already with no success. Don't think making it neutral or this big will solve it.

    If this one is protected behind a taunt/pseudo-taunt, and your opponent has no boardclear (like rogue, paladin, hunter) this can stick. And then you've won! (But you'd also win with any other card.)

    Since it is neutral, other classes can use it: warrior has the "give a minion rush" (called charge) card, which really fits here. Mage can freeze the board, and play this like a doomsayer for next round. Druid and paladin can hide this behind a taunt. But I guess it is hardly playable for DH,hunter or rogue.

    Everyone is saying this will only be played with Guardian Animals but there's also evolve, discover, random card generation and arena xD

    Basically needs a second card to be remotely playable, and even with that second card it’s not that great

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    Nice effect for big enough body especially with the 7 mana summon 2 beasts druid spell

    Too slow.

    Can be good with rush/charge, but that card is bad in constructed.

    By The Holy Light!

    Imagine a 4/6 being 'too slow' for today's meta, comparable to Druid of the Claw Card Image

    What a time for meta.
