    I really dont like legendaries that all they do is drawing cards like this. Curator, Ringmaster Whatley, Countess Ashmore. they dont feel legendary enough for me. they may be good cards, but I dont like them still.

    It tutors 3 cards in a class that usually struggles for card draw. Why wouldn't this be played?

    because playing a 3/5 that does nothing in a class that is terrible at recovery is a death sentence.

     

    Like, imagine having to play this into Jandice Barov, or an Aldor Thruthseeker + Libram.

    This thing just loses you so much tempo while the cards it draws will barely help you stabilize unless you also have Professor Slate in hand.

    This is way too slow for Hunter. The Curator days are over, card draw needs to be cheap or tempo oriented or else it just doesn't work for non-control decks.

     

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Can't say no to card draw. 5 mana draw three cards that can be immediately played next turn looks strong

    I can see it in a burn or combo Hunter, though there are not enough cards to support this right now. Still 4 stars since the card is good and can see play for the mentioned in wild.

    3 for a 2/3 with that effect would help Hunter.  This feels like stretching for the class

    Very useful as hunters excel in cheap spells! And a directed draw can never go wrong!

    RIP to rotating Spell Damage Hunter, but there are still some pretty strong cards to tutor with this! Some immediate thoughts are Tracking + Quick Shot or Petting Zoo + any Secret.

    Has potential, just because of the card draw aspect, but as many have pointed out, this may be too slow.  Will need to re-evaluate when all available spells are known to see if it overcome being a slower card.

    Neat idea. Probably still just draw and smorc, as hunters do. Could be pretty good if the spell support is there.

    The stats make this card feel bad but if you compare it to Nourish it starts to look quite good.

    Everyone complains that Hunter doesn't get enough card draw. They give you very strong targeted card draw and you don't know what to do with it.

    This is a great card, and it will definitely see play. You can guarantee that it draws Tracking, Scavenger's Ingenuity, and Deadly Shot. That is a hugely powerful turn, considering all the combos Scavenger's Ingenuity enables.

    Fair enough. I am just excite to see a hunter card that just draws you cards without any conditions or setup.

    Can´t decide if it´s good or bad. Card draw is always good, but play 5 mana, pass isn´t.

    I'm usually happy to see card draw for Hunter, but I'm not sure it'll be useful enough. Will we really see Spell Hunter again?

    Really good draw card for hunter and the 3 spells drawn can be casted on next turn

    This card isn't bad. How good it ends up being depends on if hunters get any great 1,2, or 3 cost spells.

    Great card with good stats and drawing abilities will be too slow for more aggro style decks
