    This is very strong and makes Big Demon DH a real consideration. This thing can take out a minion and deal face damage in a single turn (aka, break through a taunt and hit for lethal). It's basically King Krush twice

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    There's a scary thought.  Really wish Blizz would stop pushing face damage so much.

    VERY strong minion for Control DH (Oh My Yogg! :0 )  and probably Soul DH. Illidari Inquisitor might not be able to be discounted unlike Bladed Lady but the upside for running Illidari Inquisitor is that for 8 mana you can kill a minion AND go FACE with it. (Because Illidari Inquisitor specifically says "after your hero attacks AN enemy")

    I think Illidari Inquisitor will see at the very least some experimentation, but i think that it will see more than just experimentation.

    Edit: It's a Demon, so you can cheat it out on turn 6 if you played Raging Felscreamer before then. That's still scary. OH and they can copy it with Soul Split if it lives a turn... Hmm maybe there is some kind of memey OTK potential in wild with this card? In standard you might be able to do that combo i just said on turn 10 + Tour Guide the turn before in order to deal 18 damage burst to FACE. Probably won't be that good but will be fun to try out.

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    I feel bad for King Krush man, I know it's not a direct upgrade and for another class but it just seems a better version of it.

    Its basically a very powerful card on its own with some combo potential with Raging Felscreamer and Soul Split

    The fact that it has rush means you're nearly always guaranteed to hit face for 8 assuming you have a weapon equipped. Also a major soft taunt that practically wins the game if left alive for a turn.

    Will this ever see play though? Well, it depends whether dealing 8 damage to the board and then 8 damage to face is well worth it on turn 8. And to think we once thought Ragnaros the Firelord was broken as hell.

    Small point: This thing practically destroys arena single handedly.

    This looks really strong.

    Only downside I am seeing is that it costs 8 mana. Way more than the DH normal curve.

    Assuming you have  a weapon equipped on 8, drop this, rush a small minion, hit face, then this hits face for 8. Pretty insane, board control plus face pressure.

    Honestly, the rush just seems like too much. This can already attack whatever you want the turn you play it, letting you attack twice right of the bat for 8 damage feels like overkill.

    DH have tons of really good big minions, the question is: is this enought? DH use to be aggro/tempo class and big resources are not viable.

    Finally, another good minion for Big Demon Hunter. There could also be some combo potential here like others have already mentioned, with cards like Felosophy and Soul Split around. 

    Not sure how the DH class will look when some of the initiate cards rotate out, but I think this minion will see play.

    Not sure what the big uproar is surrounding this card. King Krush hardly sees play outside of rare meme OTK decks. And we already know DH is best at aggro and tempo (which includes Soul DH). The class would need some other insane big demons for a big demon deck to emerge. So this card will see as much play as Hulking Overfiend

    Super nasty, even more so when combined with Raging Felscreamer. Yikes!

    Hoping to see Big Demon Hunter support continue.  This looks like fun, but I'm usually guilty of over-rating big bodies...

    If there is a way to cheat him out earlier, then it will be worth it as long as the minion it swings at with it's Rush ability isn't the same one you you swing at with your hero
