    I know one thing: someone in Wild who plays Rogue will try this and people will hate on it way too hard. But it will be hilarious when it actually wins.

    This is a really cool reference, trying to have some fun with the idea of South Park.
    Memes aside, I think we just need to wait for a specific Deathrattle Trigger Deck for now.

    The only really memeable deck that can do this right now is Priest, but as I assume on how I fear, Priest is probably just gonna go quest anyways, but, I know for sure that Hearthstone is going to pull off an Achievement for Elwynn boar, so still keep them just in case.

    6 Star Meme Card, 1 Star too slow.

    This card is hilarious, 10/10

    Also, honestly this is a better Mogu Cultist in 99% of scenarios.

    I’m usually against doing this, but imma theorycraft a deck for this, despite not yet having seen most of the cards. This looks so cool!

      Haha I did the same

      Demon Hunter has good Deathrattle synergy, Hunter can pull it from the deck with Scavengers and put multiple copies back in with Dire Frenzy but I think Druid is the way to go. You’ve got draw with Living Seed and Fungal Fortunes if you keep the number of minions low and then copy with Germination and Teron

        Interesting… I went with a Wild priest deck to make use of their duplication tools and deathrattle synergy.

        The only weakness with druid is getting the extra copies in hand in case weapon destruction happens. Hunter gets way more extra copies via breeder and frenzy. I was actually contemplating running a beast copying deck that uses the same concept as the Krush OTK, but uses Rat King as well. Also note that Hunter also has Jewel as well, so this could summon a bunch of these boars or several Rat Kings which would still be devastating to face down a board of 5/5s that never go away.

          I’ve just theory crafted a version with the new Oracle card that summons a copy of minions.

          Combo is, play 1x Oracle, 2x Boar and then Teron Gorefiend to have 4 Boars die and 4 more ready to go inside Teron. Can be done as early as turn 6 with Boar discounts.

          Runs Living Seed to draw the Boars which are the only Beasts in the deck, some of the new Tradeable cards for extra cycle and removal/stall.

          Think the only reliable counters are Silence (which doesn’t get run) or the opponent popping Teron, clearing all of the 2/2 Boars and then playing weapon removal. I think only Priest has a chance of doing that.

    D… D… The F***ing what. Haha. This one feels to easy to pull off for at least priest and rouge, and not only does it give you a supper strong weapon, but on your first strike you pretty much win anyway since all your opponents mana is gone….

    But then again rouge had a hard time playing more then four to activate it’s quest so maybe I’m just overvaluing this, but you can have this with almost any rouge deck, you don’t really need to play around it. And Priest with it’s revival and deathrattle symmetry should be able to do this rather easily still, and can remove and silence enemies in it’s way. Will be surprised if it isn’t played in wild.

      I think the fact it’s “have them die” rather than “play” makes it somewhat easier, although I’m not sure if Rogue has sufficient duplication tools in Standard. Wild priest decks may well be promising though.

    Cool design! Seems hard enough to pull off & can still be somewhat tech’d against with taunts/weap removal. Definitely easier than getting 7 on the board at once like that other card.

    I feel like blizz is getting a bit more adventurous this xpac on win conditions. I’m diggin it!

      How exactly does weapon removal help against this? It destroys your mana crystals.

      That said, it’s incredibly slow and limited in how you can pull it off.

        True. But if they’re forced to play a boar but not kill it the same turn, you can pop the boar on your turn and drop on ooze before they can attack with it.

      I think it depends on the class. It is going to be a bit harder (and slower) to complete this in say druid or rogue compared to the Mogus since they duplicated them in hand or drew them (Elise/Lab Recruiter/etc.).
