    Rush and taunt isn't exactly the best combination and the low attack isn't good on minions. It's not good anyway and thankfully it's a beast so it won't disrupt the dragon discover pool.

    Not hopeless against aggro, otherwise it has too low impact on game to see constructed play.

    Its fine versus aggro, nobody will tech this but is a nice addition to the discovery/summon pool.

    This is REALLY Pushing it, and even for Midrange Beast Warrior. Replace the Taunt with Lifesteal however and I would have been a whole lot more interested.

    rush and taunt feels weird, you don't wanna hurt your taunt minions, but in arena you can use as some removal and left a 2/3 taunt on board, but is a weak card.

    Usually you want 3 attack at that mana range for a taunt. Is rush on a taunt usefull enough to forego that +1 attack? Probably not.

    I think it's solid. Good health, attacks a little low, but he can eat an opponent's weanie minion and then Hunter can buff it up with Dire Frenzy or Houndmaster next turn

    Well it is a decent anti aggro option, but depends on meta...

    Its not too bad honestly. A more consistent Swift Messenger but losses the possible 6/2 flip that might just do it at times.

    The beast tag is also something in its favor. I'm just thinking whether this can fit into the new rush warrior.

    The only reason it could see play is the beast tag, other than that, its pretty bad.

    I doubt that it will but given how Amani War Bear turned out I could see this surprising us.
