    Strong card. Never underestimate a card with Discover effects. This could very well see play in non Dragon decks just for the value. Too bad the 3-drop slot is always crowded for Hunter already.

    ok it's good but dragon hunter is even a thing now? with what, 3 class dragons? arena ok I understand i'm just not buying this in standard or wild. I am curious if Primordial Explorer is good enough to be played as only dragon in non dragon (2 dragon )hunter decks

    Definitely an auto-include in any Dragon Hunter decks. Poisonous is tricky to deal with, discover a dragon is an awesome battlecry, and if you play it on turn 3 it sets you up very nicely for the mid-game. If Dragon Hunter is good, this will be a defining card in that deck.

    Solid card for dragon hunter but i dont think that deck will be viable this expansion

    Emperor Cobra with a huge additional upside. Kinda insane in arena and decent on ladder.

    Poisionous is always strong or at least annoying to deal with. And it gives value. Sounds like a 4-5 star to me

    2/3 for 3 mana is bad. Yeah poison doesnt matter its just too squishy. The battlecry is nice but it doesnt seem like dragon hunter will be a great thing, the highlander deck loses a lot of synergyes making the cut

    every class got a 'discover a dragon' card?

    By the cards revealed until now, this loses value since there isn't a lot of good cards to make a Dragon Hunter IMHO...

    Emperor Cobra with value—this will be a nice addition to highlander hunter as a form of early game board control. Although less now, it can discover itself and possible even the new Alextrasa. In arena this is amazing for both value and early control. In wild, although, it might just not be good enough.

    Emperor Combra with steroid. The value that this card can generate is good enough to belive that it will see play

    Pretty nice card, Emperor Cobra but with a discover effect and Dragon tribal.

    Does not necessarily have to be played within a Dragon Hunter deck, most likely see its home in highlander decks if Hunter does not receive enough Dragon support. Great card for arena where poisonous effects seem to be most effective.

    Hunter hasn´t received much dragon support historically, but this year it seems different. This is a solid 3 mana car for a midrange deck, which could exist in standard. For wild, its just too fair of a card to see play.

    thas a five stars card, it's too strong poisonous minios can have 1 damage and still gona be OP. so i think this is a great card with the discover tag and it's crazy on arena by default

    Awesome in arena, too slow for hunter in constructed though.

    I am not sold on this because it needs a Hunter Dragon deck to work to be viable. The body is bad, and 3-health poisonous cards are just not hard to remove. Now, if Hunter had some way to give this card Rush, it's a different story.

    Excellent card. It discovers a dragon and has poison. You can put it in a highlander deck for the extra value or even in quest hunter.

    Good stats, good passive, good battlecry, good card.
