Boommaster Flark Card Review

I really think that this card should not be underestimated, at least in a Mech Hunter if that Archetype will turn out to be viable. While a 7 mana 5/5 is terrible, summoning FOUR Goblin Bombs is massive. Assuming you can trigger them, that’s 7 mana for a 5/5 + 8 face damage + possibly some extra synergies. Remember that the Bomb is actually a 1 mana card. Sure, it’s not the best one, but this is a 7 mana 5/5 that summons four 1-drops on play. It’s actually pretty crazy if you think about it that way.

And how can you trigger those, you might ask? There are some ways, actually. First and most obvious one is just letting your opponent trigger them. They’re a bit like an anti-AoE tech. When you play more onto the board (you will be limited to 3 minions on top of the Bombs, but that’s enough), there is a high chance that your opponent AoEs and clears them. Then, those are Mechs, so they’re great Magnetic catchers. If you buff them, it’s basically like giving the Mech you play Charge, which is nice. You can also use it as a great refill by playing Cybertech Chip before triggering them (so you will get extra Mechs on top of the damage). And Deathrattle Mechs might be the Hunter’s Mech theme this expansion (so far all of the Mech-related cards they’ve got are based around Deathrattle), so maybe the Legendary spell will have something to do with that too? Or maybe they will just get more synergy in general?

The worst thing about this card is probably that it gets countered hard by Spreading Plague. It alone gives FIVE Plague targets, and four of them have 0 attack… Another bad part is that it’s absolutely slow against Aggro. Spend 7 mana, no immediate effect, face damage is not that important etc. But it doesn’t necessarily disqualify it from seeing play.

By the way, in Wild this card has insane combo with Metaltooth Leaper. Your opponent doesn’t really want to AoE down your board, so you will probably have at least those 4 Mechs to buff next turn. Now he takes 8 damage immediately AND has to clear and take 8 more.

I wouldn’t sleep on this card. While it heavily depends on what other cards Hunter get, I see some potential in this one.

Card rating: 7/10

    Curves perfectly into Primordial Drake as well. Will be interesting to see if dragon hunter becomes a thing, sounds like a fun deck at the least.

    Amazing in aggro for a very specific reason: think of each bomb as a platform to place a magnetic minion. Each of them provides an opportunity for attack. So you have anywhere from 1 to 4 Mechs you can place on the board, ready to attack, without Rush or Charge! I’m giving this 9/10/ if only for the reason that you can have a very good turn 8 damage-wise.

            That’s such an incredibly stupid statement to make because it is so easy to look up the actual data these days with sites like HSReplay. Looking at HSReplay, for example, in the last 30 days, the most popular Cubelock list with 24,000 games recorded runs Umbra. The second and third most popular lists, with 22,000 and 15,000 games recorded respectively, also run Umbra. And that’s in a meta where Cubelock has been consistently sub 50% winrate across the board.

    Could this be slotted in Odd Face Hunter? Or Odd Midrange? Better in Midrange because Face wants to be ending the game by Turn 7. I think this is good, you could even follow the curve with a Primordial Drake so that the opponent gets 8 face damage next turn, and Hunter’s can activate the Deathrattles several times. This will definitely see play in Midrange Mech Hunter or in a Combo deck. Rating it 4/5 stars.

    HIhi. I can add something to this card. it obviously is a baku hunter card that deals 8 face dmg. Asuming your oponents isn’t dead by turn 8 you get a preety scary board there too. and deal 3 dmg to the face is a scary hero power. the magnetic part is and the chip is kind of slow. But its 8 face dmg after all. 10 face damage is a piroblast. The downside of this is that mech synergyes kind of screw your consystency with kill comands. So deathstalker rexar will be a card that can give you some exptra value. Although in a different deck type. Its great midrange card.
    Well i think this is the new doctor 7 of the expansion. Unfortunately only for hunter. And the Dr boom hero card faild there where the original dr boom succeeded. And that is being on curve with great stats.

            Clockwork Automaton + Hero Power for six damage on turn 7 would be even better.

            Clockwork is a bigger threat that forces your opponent to answer it… if they can’t answer it, you have a 4/4 mech that can be magnetized next turn (while still having a 6 damage hero power)

      Why would a seven mana 5/5 that can eventually deal eight face damage be the new Dr. Boom? It’s not exactly a great tempo play for a midrange decks, and aggressive decks can just ignore it unless forced to deal with them with the application of some Magnetic cards.

      Odd Hunter also wants to end the game as soon as possible. If turn seven comes around for that deck and you don’t at least deal near lethal damage that turn and instead spend it playing a bunch of set up for the next turn, you’re probably going to lose.

      That’s not to say the card isn’t good. It’s just not going to be an aggressive powerhouse. If it were, it would either be five instead of seven mana with an appropriate reduction in stats or the damage it can deal would faster.

    This card is only good with a yet-to-be-seen mech buffing AOE card for Hunter, which is a legitimate possibility. However, I do not see this card seeing play without more mech support.
    Cool synergy with Void Ripper, though!

        Faithful Lumi isn’t the only 1 drop you run…
        if you lose the board immediately at the start, with Fire Fly, Dire Mole, and Argent Squire at your disposal, then you’re doing something wrong.

        also, Boommaster Flark is not the master plan (it’s an emergency “uh-oh” button)

        —Most games where Odd Hunter loses, go something like this;
        Turns 1-5 = Drill your opponent in the face
        Turns 5-6 = Opponent stabilizes before you can get lethal
        Turns 6-8 = Opponent counterattacks and you concede

        The Boommaster, is a potential last-ditch effort to get that last chunk of damage in to secure the win.

          But this 7 drop does no dmg and you miss your heropower. You need cards to activate those bombs but at turn 8 your hand should be empty and the cards that might use those bombs don not fit in your deck.

    I see promise for this if there is a wide mech buff for hunter… Thats a little specific though. As is it could be at the top end of aggro or slotted in midrange maybe to build a late board. This and bomb make me think maybe deathrattle mech hunter is going to get some support, but for now im intruiged. 3/5

    It will be a wrong evaluation of the card if u just think of the potential face damage.
    This looks like support to midrange hunter mech deck. The true value of he card is to create FOUR Mechs in one go to provide basis for Magnetize. In comparison you create two mechs in one card with Giggling Inventor (5 mana Summon two 1/2 Mechs with Taunt and Divine Shield). If opponent kills all of them, ya they take 8 damage. But if they don’t, u buff the Mechs as u like.

      Well, Dr. Boom was a 7/7 by itself and the boom bots could deal 10 damage in total. This is neither as big of a body nor can the damage be dealt as quickly as with the Boombots.

      This is a fine card, but not a Hunter Exclusive Dr. Boom

        Well,with dr.boom 2.0 you can,deal 8 damage to face and summon a 5/5,you should worry with board control using other cards
        And well,spend your time to kill these bombs is always the rigth thing to do,or we can smorc even more with magnetic,so theres nowere to run

          No, but the potential is there plus the Good Dr. Boom is a 7/7 by himself and the boom bots are a lot more aggressive than the goblin bombs.

          The eight damage to the face is slow, so slow that I can’t really be sure this would see play outside of a Mech Hunter and generally as a Hunter, if you lose control of the board at or around turn seven, you better have a Kill Command or two in hand or have a way to instant trigger all of those bombs. Dropping this won’t exactly remedy the situation unless you have something that can deal the damage immediately. If Bonemare were still priced at seven mana, Hunters would have little reason to play this over that.

          Playing magnetic minions on the tokens this produces isn’t an awful idea either, but that will become a lot of set-up for an amount of damage classes like Druid, Shaman, and Warrior could potentially absorb and come back from.

          The card is generally fine, but it’s similarities to Dr. Boom do not also make it a Dr. Boom.

    It’s not that bad since the bombs will be mechs and you can magnetize them if the opponent doesn’t deal with them and get 8 damage to the face. But it is indeed very slow. Could work in a mech deck or an OTK combo deck playing with deathrattles.

    This is a bit under whelming for a seven cost legendary more or less made to purposely copy the original Dr. Boom. At least the bombs are mechs so they can be Magnitized onto, but they really should’ve been mech versions of the original Leper Gnome if anything.
    At least there are four of them instead of just the two boombots from the original.

    It’s fine as it is but the worst thing about it is the bombs don’t really do much without help.

      It’s not really a 5/13. 8 of the health has 0 attack, so it doesn’t count the same way, since trading into it is free. Better to say a 5/5 and a 0/8.
