    Has great potential, if DH gets some good deathrattle support. I'd be excited to see more midrange deathrattle DH archetypes. Aggro and OTK just aren't that fun for me.

    Premium effect, targeted summon, incredible potential in a control shell for Wild paired with N'Zoth.

     

    Still, I'm not convinced with DR DH.

    What is this??? Can't they show us at least one good deathrattle, or are they saving those for final stream???

    Ok, now Demon Hunter gets the ability to summon minions from their deck, great.

    By the end of this year DH is probably able to do everything that is unique for all other classes in HS, wonderful.

    NOT!

    More support for deathrattle DH. Let's hope we get some other cards for this archetype

    There's still plenty of time to see more good deathrattles come out for Demon Hunter (or just Neutral cards), so I want to reserve some judgement on the whole Deathrattle package here, but right now it just seems kind of silly.

    But what's the best case scenario here so far? Maybe Al'ar or Taelan Fordring or Renowned Performer or Disguised Wanderer or Fishy Flyer? Cheating cards out is pretty valuable, so maybe that gets over the fact that most of these deathrattles they have today are just pretty weak.

    With Baron Rivendare in Standard, it's very possible that you only need a couple of good deathrattles to make this package work, but it seems low power.

    The fact that its a battlecry and specifically recruits minions from your deck means that this card will at some point see play.

    Im convinced that here has to be better cards down the line for this card to exist. Hopefully theres at least a taunt, because without it this card is absolutely just unplayable for the most part.

    Reminds me of Soulciologist Malicia, and that's the high bar this card has to got reach to be good enough.

    A new playstyle for DH is coming together slowly. We've now seen a card that summons DR's from hand, and one that summons them from the deck, and a card that draw them. There is a lot of flexibility here. Without even seeing some insanely powerful new DR cards, just look at things like Scrapyard Colossus

    Hard to know how good it is until we see some DR cards.

    Also DH being a DR class it´s just weird...

    this has potential. But I would not play this with Razorfen Beastmaster.

    This is not the payoff you want for the archetype. Terrible.

    This is strong. Even if the Deathrattle pool we have right now isn't that impressive, even pulling out 2 Fishy Flyers and a Renowned Performer is an insane tempo swing with 11 fast damage scattered through 3 bodies that will leave a lot of board presence behind and refill your hand.

    While I'm not sure Death Speaker Blackthorn will be top tier imediately, because DH doesn't have the top tier deathrattles for it right now, I can expect him to have at least a bit of time under the spotlight over the two years he'll be in standard.

    Rating cards on coolness factor rather than predicting power because I like screwing up rating averages (and because I suck at predicting real power levels, but we'll ignore that LUL)
    Wins per class (1/6/21): Demon Hunter - 115; Druid - 899Hunter - 895; Mage - 994; Paladin - 1045; Priest - 677; Rogue - 935; Shaman - 942; Warlock - 771; Warrior - 772

    I think I can see the writing on the wall, Death Rattle Demon Hunter is being pushed now.
