    Lake Thresher, Teacher’s Pet, Twilight Runner… all excellent things to run with this card.

    I wouldn’t underestimate Recruit and Rush mechanic.

    Looks pretty strong on the reveal stream with the new broken 5 cost beasts.

    This card gets flak, becuase you really need to go for specific Beasts out there. The only real good Beasts that cost 5 or Less are King Mukla, Bad Luck Albatross, Escape Manasaber and Hunter’s Zixor.

    And even than it feels eeeeeehh…

    Yeah, Even I have to say 2 Stars on this. We just don’t have any support for Guardian Animals yet.

    The deckbuilding restriction might be too tough to work with Wildclaw, but mostly there’s just no beast you want to Recruit? Stranglethorn Tiger, Bad Luck Albatross, Mana Saber, King Mukla and Emperor Cobra are the only good ones, every other 4 or 5 cost beast relies on Battlecry. If you’re cheating this spell out you have better things to do, if you’re running lots of beasts you have better things to do. I can only assume they’re gonna reveal a Recruit target that makes more sense for this.

      True, and you’ll have to not draw your key beasts before you play this card.

    I think Hunter, at least with their current beasts, will have a hard time getting use out of this. They want to run Beast flood with Shan’do Wildclaw or, in Highlander, just run the standart Diving Gryphon/Zixor/Phase Stalker/ecr.

    Druid has a little bit more Potential IF they can play around that card. By no means will druid run something like Stranglethorn Tiger, Mana Saber and Bad Luck Albatross just to make this card decent.

    In any case, I think this can be very strong once it gets some real support. 7 Mana might be tough, but Druids can cheat Mana and they love dishing out big boards and if there is a great beast to synergies with this, Mana Saber and maybe even Albatross are here to support this card, even if they arent enough on their own. For now, 3 Stars, as soon as it has support, 5 stars.

    In Hunter, I doubt this will ever work unless they get massive support. But you can never know, I just have the feeling Blizzard wouldnt print such a well designed card for the dust it provides.

      Got support. Pulling out Thrashers, Teacher’s Pets and Twillight Runners pushes this card on a whole new level! Midrange Druids will love to play this! Goes up to 5 Stars for me!

    I’ll hold off judgment till bit later but a decent point for this is that if this gets played after the 10 cost your talking about summoning 2 5 cost or less beasts in druid that have a 4/4 boost. For 7 Mana and giving them rush.

    Depending on your beast cards and wether or not they involve death rattles this card could have decent potential.

    Should have read 5 or more…

    2 stars?
    This can be good, for example if you summon 2 Albatros with rush you can remove a big minion and shuffle 4 tokens into opponent deck immediately, also mana-sabers with rush is not bad.
    this also cycles 2 cards from deck which is good for highlander and good in general for deck consistency.

    if it could summon 2 Savanna Highmanes with rush is was a 5 stars card..

    Hmmm yeah not seeing it right now. Certainly need better beasts to summon for this to work.

    This is a bad card not in line with the power creep of the set. Too pricey and not enough support for the moment, specially for Druid!

    Not a great way to present the card right now.

    It’s only usable if the deck is buffed by Shando wildclaw, deck buff (and cost reduction?), and beast synergy cards like Tundra Rhino.

    Since hunter and druid are still hiding some of their cards (more than 10 cards), I have confidence that this card will be very good at the end of reveal, but for now, I’ll keep my rating and wait for the rest of them.

    Trash card. It would be decent if you could summon like Highmanes with this but you can’t and if you run beasts, chances are you wanna run more than the ~5 mana good ones.

    The hunter druid dual class card can give the beasts in your deck +1/+1 but that doesn’t really do much when you’re spending 7 mana to maybe hit the right beasts. Perharps we’ll get some good 5 mana beast to go with this but I still don’t know how this card could ever work.

      If only druid got a beast that draws two cards when attacking, and you could run 2 of them.

    There aren’t any good beast to summon with this, they either have bad stats or battlecrys. this card is gonna get left in the dust unless there are some new beats that come out but i dont think so
