    I see that a lot of people here miss the secret power of this card, which is that you can immediately play all cards drawn by Barak if you play it on curve.

    which implies that there are cards you'd want to play on turn 6...which there aren't.

    As it stands this is just worse than Polkelt, because at least that guy lets me play a Highmane on curve guaranteed

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    I guess it can be used to draw your finishers and use the on turn 6, it depends on spells we get

    Something new for Hunter, I guess.

    I don't know how to assess this card.

    On the one hand, tutoring specific things from your deck is never a bad thing, especially since Hunter does have access to quite a few cheap spells.

    On the other hand, what could you accomplish with this specific tutor? I don't think the effect is specific enough to warrant playing this in an aggro / midrange Hunter, but it could see some play in slower Deathrattle builds, especially to draw out Nine Lives in Wild or even a cheeky Carrion Studies.

    Started playing HS in May, 2015. The bad news: I missed the excitement of 'Naxx out?' and GvG. The good news: I never met an Undertaker.

    More spell synergy and certainly a good card if you're going the Lock and Load route.

    But there really needs to be better 2 cost and 3 cost spells to make this one really powerful. Still, being able to draw for 3 on 5 isn't really that bad, and this is hunter we're talking about. Any card that enables draw at all in hunter gets an automatic consideration at very least.

    So the concept is cool and all, any time you can tutor specific cards to draw the potential to do fun things will be there. I just fail to see where this benefits Hunter. I'll admit to not having all the cards at hand right now to see what spells are in those slots, but I'm not sure what this is supposed to set up.

    Unfortunately, common sense isn't as common as it should be.

    Card draw in hunter. Should be good, shaman spirit was pretty good

    Interesting effect for Hunter, we still need to what new spells the class is getting. Could enable some combo plays, but overall drawing/tutoring cards is always good. 

    I also don't get the flavor of this card. What does that effect have to do with the character? Is that related to what he did in WoW or something

    Going to be a staple in almost any hunter deck as they needed a draw mechanic

    If hunter has a top-tier deck, this card will be a part of it:

    1. It draws specific cards, which is crucial for decks that need a specific setup, including combo decks;
    2. Hunter doesn't have any decent card draw in its Core set outside of Tracking, so it relies on expansion cards to fill that weakness.

    Hunter needs draw but not this kind of draw. We need some very powerful 1, 2 and 3 cost spells to make it viable. Right now it's definitely a meh card.

    Seems like an interesting card, let's see the must important cards hunter can tutor with it:

    3 cost: Deadly Shot and Petting Zoo.

    2 Cost: All secrets, Don't Feed the Animals, Quick Shot and Scavenger's EngenuityBADCARDNAME.

    1 Cost: Demon Companion, Overwhelm, Tracking, Resizing Pouch and the most interesting option: Lock and Load.

    It's also VERY interesting that it tutors a 1, 2 and 3 cost card, because 1+2+3=6, meaning that you can play all 3 tutorred spells in a row on turn 6 after a turn 5 Barak Kodobane. The 3 cost spell pool is quite... low on cards right now, but i feel like were going to probably see a new 3 cost spell this expansion. Also i guess Barak Kodobane is one of the few reasons Animal Companion rotated? hunter has always had trouble with drawing cards, and Barak Kodobane helps out a lot with overcoming that weakness. I'm also 100% sure we will get even more support for this during fellowing card reveals.

    I think it will see play in midrange/OTK hunter decks in order to draw removal, and i think it will also see play in Secret Hunter in order to Lock and Load + secret + Petting Zoo the turn after. Barak Kodobane will be a very versatile card in a lot of slower hunter deck going forward. (Good thing the hunter Core Set already hinted towards a slower midrange/control style of hunter.)

    Too early to say just how good it will be. Very card-pool and meta dependent. I'm hopeful!

    Seems good - there are already a lot of good 1- and 2-cost spells available in Year of the Gryphon

    Maybe for Secret Hunter, but still too slow.

    Kinda slow, maybe at 3 mana could have devastating potential.
