    I really wish this worked with Swarm of Locusts – probably not, cuz Swarm fills your board, meaning this can’t activate.

    We do have solid activators in Springpaw and Desert Spear. It’s also nice that this will recast with Zul’jin (and you’ll be able to reactivate it with Unleash The Beast). If you can proc it *using plays you’d make anyway*, then you can think of this as a 4/4 with rush you weaved in with just a floated mana – great tempo. But I’m still having a hard time seeing what particular deck would run this (considering all the other great cards you want to play in Hunter) but it has potential.

      It will stop after 3 and activate then summon the rest

      Although Swarm of Locus kinda ruins zuljin so after he rotates

    An option for quest hunter, (springpaw, hallazi,swarm of locusts etc.) and like someone said in the comments: hunting mastiff.
    So in an earlier turn play the quest and maybe a spring paw so you can complete it turn four: when it will have much more impact. or even turn three with two springpaws (probably inconsistent)

    Probably not in highlander hunter which will almost certainly make it into the meta…
    But yet again: we’ll have to see.

      Not to forget unleash the beast which IS in highlander hunter which is the currently the best performing hunter archetype but it won’t have as much impact.

        Getting it to work in Highlander is difficult the only way to guarantee finishing the quest also ruins your Highlander aspect so it’s more an emergency play when you’ve used the 2 Highlander cards. Of course all Highlander decks can get trolled by a lucky bomb using warrior.

    The sidequest is easy enough to complete and it gives a decent reward. It’s better than Toxic Reinforcements.

    The reward isn’t so good, but I like how there’s multiple side quests. Everyone brings up halazzi but I think everyone forgets about Hunting Mastiff (2/1 with echo and rush at 2 mana) which can finish this up pretty quickly. I always was surprised this card didn’t see much play and now I see it’s because hunter didn’t have that much rush synergy, so I think this could be a viable especially since it’s a side quest. 6/10

    You know this also gives Hunter a reason to run 2 other cards. Portal Keeper and Portal Overfiend. They add 3 spells to the deck when drawn summon a 2/2 rush demon which is enough to finish this little quest. It could be a good backup for if this card ends up near bottom of your deck. You can’t completely control when it triggers but you can at least finish the quest if you’ve already had to use your other rush cards.

      Why does no one remember hunting mastiff? Also I think those are too slow as I imagine this is something you really only wanna play early on.

        Like I said the portal is more if you didn’t draw this until the later game which can happen and mentioning mastiff yes it can finish quest but the fact it’s a rush minion means you may use it early to clear something else. The portal guys work best when deck is whittled down but your also guaranteed that you will finish the quest without having to worry about using up rushes on other stuff.

          Beast synergy

            Point made was if have a minion with rush in hand or a card that immediately summons one with rush it’s likely it could be used before you even get to play this card.

            However with the portal cards especially the cheaper one the only reason you would play it is if activated the quest or will activate next turn. It’s slower but there isn’t as much of an urgency to play it because the effect is delayed anyway unlike other rush cards.

    Pretty ok until lynx rotates

    1 mana 4/4 with rush, seems good. I wonder if minions summoned while Shaw is on the board will also count towards this? Even if they don’t, it still seems very powerful thanks to the amount of Rush cards midrange and highlander hunters were already running.

    Instant 5 Stars. This is Ridiculous for my Midrange Beast Hunter, especially for when I depend so much on my Rush Beast Cards, such as Springpaw and Vicious Scalehide of all things, especially my all-time favourite: Unleash the Best (which summons a 5/5 Beast with Rush AND it has twin spell.)

    I feel like Hunters just don’t truly understand on what it’s like to have a minion to give you an imminent response for whenever there is a threat happening because almost every hunter I saw was Mech Hunter. Somewhere down the line is where I’m doing to see Clear the Way to be a popular card, because of how much of a power spike it can give you, just for 1 mana. The Response is delayed, sure, but you’re usually going to be focusing on the later or more important minions that your opponent is going to play anyways.

      Totally agree, just thought of desert spear when I saw the card. You can time the quest if needed.

      Hunting mastiff anyone? You can finish this whole quest in one turn at 6 mana

      Oh and we hunters know what it like to have body, body lets us go face, should be charge not rush, at least not taunt, taunt needs nerf.

    So, do the good classes get 2 different side quests? That’s the 2nd one for hunter.

    Does the Sidequest in play count for the Questing Explorer Battlecry?
