Big Game Hunter Additional Information

  1. Big Game Hunter was changed from 3 Mana to 5 Mana when the Standard Format was released on April 26th, 2016. [Source]
  2. “Big Game Hunter represents an inexpensive source of removal that is packaged with a minion. It’s efficient enough that some Heroes with powerful Class-based removal cards choose to run the neutral Big Game Hunter. We’re increasing the cost of the card from 3 mana to 5 mana.” [Source]

    The increased mana cost, in a really weird way, is slightly beneficial in a Shaman deck with Evolve or Master of Evolution – from turn 6 you can drop BGH, kill a 7 attack minion and immediately evolve it into a 6 cost minion. Sylvanus Windrunner if you’re lucky (or Emperor Thaurissan or Cairne Bloodhoof … ).

    Justified, but 4 would have been also the same…. might be over nerf!?

    I think it’s not a nerf really. It would be bad only against 1 7 mana drop… maybe 2. Sea giant and Fel reaver. Fel because it’s a 5 mana card played best turn 1 or 3 with inervade and you cannot bgh it till turn 5 when your dead. But it’s getting out of Standart mode so don’t care…
    Sea giant is played early in the game let’s say turn 5 or 6—– when there’s a fluded board with minions and if you kill him for 5, your opponent still got a whole board against your miserable 4 2.
    5 mana is ok as the meta will be so slow, that you won’t care turn 10 killing a 10-10 with 5 or 3 mana. And turn 10 as I see the issue will be the bgh most important turn in the upcoming expention. Think about it…

      I think that its not unplayable (which is good as it does keep some cards in check), its not nearly as good. Now in wild you can’t play boom and bgh their boom on turn ten anymore, which is relevant
