    Great card, has great synergy with Mo’arg Artificer, only requirement is playing a deck other than aggro.

    Seven mana is anti-synergy with Skull.

    I actually am going to like Cycle of Hatred, in my opinion. SUre 7 Mana is pretty expensive to pull off, but but mind you that it’s for EVERY minion Killed. So Token Demon Hunters for example could consider not only getting a “+2+2” for their 1/1s, but you all deal 3 Damage to all enemy minions, which could make even more 3/3s. It does sound nice on paper, but I can clearly see that the execution could look off, becuase Demon Hunter from how we are seeing him right now, is meant to go Fast with their Outcast, and Fighting hard, but hey. Whenever Demon Hunter Decides to Plan for Token, or a More Control Style (Maybe even Midrange again), Consider grabbing at least 1 Cycle of Hatdred.

    4 Stars.

    Smells like a control card, but note you can also kill your own 1/1s to “buff” them.

    Tough to guess whether it’ll be playable or not, trying to sniff out which expensive cards will work in a non-tempo DH build is anyone’s guess.

    It is usually against hyper aggressive decks that a 3 damage board clear works, but being seven mana, you might have already lost by that point in the game… but the sheer power of clearing a board and making one yourself is so inherently powerful that I still feel like this could see play. Even if you wipe your own board you get them back as 3/3s. I think everyone is underestimating this card.

    Good vs Token Druid, but everything else will probably not have a bunch of 3 Health minions on Board. It can be combined with Weapons or Soul Cleave, but I think it will have a hard time getting into decks. Just too slow to kill Aggro and too weak to kill Control or Midrange.

    Arena 2/5
    Standard 3/5
    Wild 0/5

    The cycle of Demon hunter hate continues…

    All jokes aside I’m glad they’re making more control oriented DH cards. So tired of hyper aggressive DH.

    4 star, hope this is good enough to make control DH a thing.

    Wow now that’s a board clearing card. And it would kill most token deck swarms. Combine it with the 2/4 demon and you would get a 9 Mana deal 6 dmg to all and guaranteed at least 1 3/3.

    Can’t wait for two demon hunters facing each other using this after each other four turns in a row

      And then one just uses Hulking Overfiend or Chaos Nova.
