Flark’s Boom-Zooka Card Review

When it comes to the flavor, this might be my favorite expansion so far. The card’s design is just so cool! Like this one. You’re a Hunter, so what are you doing with your minons? Shoot them on the rockets straight from your deck, so they can attack the opponent’s minions and explode. Exactly.

This seems like a fit into a kind of Big/Recruit Hunter deck, but not just any. For example, you would really want to cut most of the low cost stuff, such as Fire Fly or Stitched Tracker. You basically don’t want to summon 1/2’s or 2/2’s with this. You want bigger minions, with Deathrattles. That’s the best way to utilize this card – stuff like Savannah Highmane and Abominable Bowman, for example. Cards that will probably clear something and then stick another minion to the board. This card is bad as a removal only, and bad as a board fill only (I mean, pulling out Devilsaur Egg gives you 5/5, but it costs 8 mana, so not amazing) – you really need a mix of both.

Making this card work might be a huge deck building challenge, not the first time in this expansion. It will require lots and lots of theorycrating, and it might not even work in the end. Having to cut absolutely every single small-midrange minion, as well as minion such as Carnivorous Cube and Witchwood Grizzly (because that’s not something you want to pull out with this) might make the deck bad. Maybe something like an early-mid game shell of Spell Hunter, with a late game huge Deathrattle finisher? Yeah… this is one of the cards that can really go either way, and will need to playtest it first before really saying.

Card rating: Honestly, either 1/10 or 10/10. I’m leaning towards it not working, but I might be absolutely surprised.

    I built a deathrattle deck around the card and it works decent. My death rattle minions are strong enough on their own to survive and hold up. But then if I get overwhelmed the spellcard saves me while still leaving minions on the board. But it’s definitely hit or miss and not a ranked deck lol

    Crazy combos with Dire Frienzy + Vicious Scalehide + Cave Hydra… for example.

    Firstly,Hunter have some advantages with minions sinergy,its the single class that are able to use only 3 minions in deck and still having drops
    You can just buid a spell hunter,and put some nice minions on
    Theres a lot of minions you can use,you can use deathrattles that summons,deathrattles that draw, deathrattles that heal,deathrattles that smorc,or just big minions to use it just as a remove spell,or

      ye you’re right. problem is, if you draw this card too late – your “if you have only spells” cards won’t work until very late because u still have minions on your deck. and also if you draw this after you’ve already drawn your minions the card becomes totally meaningless, 8 mana for no effect. so it has alot of disadvantages, while also devastatingly good in some rare cases..

    For those saying (like me, at first) they’re disappointed that this card won’t fit in spell Hunter, there may be some use. Remember when Yshaarj and Barnes were played in spell Hunter? This spell could be used to summon the few big and/or deathrattle minions in your deck to clear some of the board and give deathrattle value. Additionally, you could run Dire Frenzy to put 3 6/6 wolves in your deck to use with this spell. It’s all theory crafting so far, but worth a try.

      I really don’t think you’d want to do that and ruin the consistency of your deck. One of the main reason the Barnes Y’shaarj combo was used that managing to play Barnes on curve, especially with the coin, provided such a massive swing turn with a 10/10 minion that earlier on in the game that, if pulled off, would usually win the player the game. With your suggestion, you’d have to find cards to take out of your deck in order to fit this spell, some big legendaries, and dire frenzy. the spell hunter list is already pretty refined, and dire frenzy has just turned out to be an awful card which would further dilute your deck if used on a wolf. IF you were going to do that you would be better off using it on a good zombeast. However that would mean you would not be able to use ‘to my side!’ or Rhok’delar until turn eight at the earliest if you used the coin on turn seven to play the spell. even worse if you never drew the spell. Thinking about it, the best use might be something using dire frenzy on zombeasts when you already have the spell in hand as a kind of board clear (possibly with zombeasts with lifestyle or poisonous) to be used in a pinch without interfering with to my side and rhok’delar it it is not drawn. still, as you say, it’s all theorycrafting at this point so we shall see

    Playing with sylvahnas trading sylvahnas , so she survives and trading your highmane into the same minion so it dies and stealing the remaining minion. I think this card is quite good, it summones three minions (in deathrattle hunter it realy is a very good card) trades and triggerese their efects you can even combo it with play dead because you can search for your big deathrattles and trigger the one you like to

        If the game is Hearthstone and the question is “Does x happen randomly,” then the answer is typically “Yes.”

          From what I could tell in the reveal video, actually, they attack the minion across from them. Obviously, they it’d be random if the opponent had an odd number of minions and you had an even number of minions, and the order you recruit them is random, but it’s not totally random.

    Interesting card, but currently I see nothing competitive here. Card needs support/specific setup.

    8 mana is way too much for Hunter to play something like this.. It’s great if you can use it with Savannah highmane and Kathrena. Kinda sad that of all the hunter decks the spell hunter itself can’t use this legendary spell… ._.

      It’s not that bad. The deck they used in the stream show cased it pretty well with deathrattle Hunter. Even if your big minions like king krush dies, you can pull it out with the abominable card(I forgot the name).

      They attack enemy minions seems to point to that it’s a play that the player doesn’t control, so I actually think it’s possible that actually works!
      Nice!

      You have some poisonous drops,if you draw them its ok,and if you use Hunter legendary you can just destroy 3 minions and filter 3 cards from your deck
