    Better divine favor for Hunters. The minions on your board don’t even need to be beasts.

    i would say this card is great… in any other class. But hunter looks for face not for value. 2 stars sorry. Blizz is trying to hard to make a control oriented hunter when the very design of the hunter hero power begs for agro. Bliz needs to come to terms that when they made the different classes their meant to excel at certain aspects of the game.

    if this hits 2 minions its worth it, its like arcane intellect draw 2 cards (or in this case possibly more)
    the only problem I see this card having is that you don’t know what beasts you’ll be getting, but because the cards arent from your deck its a good card

      Randomness of beasts isn’t only issue. Drawing via deathrattle has also lack of tempo. Not mentioning the fact you want go face in general so you want from your opponent to kill your minions and that is uncertain. So it is like Arcane Intellect with delayed unwarranted effect, which in some (rare) cases might be great.

        Well if you’re playing a face deck your opponent has no choice but to clear your board.
        And Arcane intellect doesn’t add cards to your deck. Infest can be a lot of value especially if you have an empty hand (which is often the case in hunter)…
        This card might just be too slow for an aggressive deck but looking at WOTG, you can clearly see that they are aiming at à more control type meta.

          You don’t put this in a face deck

        Or maybe you could just think for more than half a second and get that Blizzard is sick of face hunter and they want control hunter, which this card is obviously made for and much better in.

    Ball of Spiders + Infest = 6 random beast, I like it.

      For 9 mana? Not really worth the effort.

        Well, that’d be a Sprint duct taped to an Arcane Intellect, with most of a Muster for Battle strapped onto the front. By my count that totals something like 11 mana of value (deducting one from Muster for Battle due to no Light’s Justice and another two mana for the inherent randomness of the beasts.)

          7+3+3=13

          13-3=10

          10=/=11

            Yeah, I botched that math. Changed the formula a few times (at first it was 3 Arcane Intellects and most of a Muster, dithered over exactly how much mana value to subtract over beast-randomness), but it’s not really relevant considering those values are estimates anyway.

            Actually, combining cards generally increases the mana value; for instance, 2*Arcane Intellect = 1*Sprint, but 3*2 =/= 7. In almost all cases, combining two cards into one has a mana cost of 1+ the combined mana cost of the two cards. Generalized, each extra card (after the first) adds an additional 1 to the mana cost.

            In this case, we have 7 + 3 (+1) + 3 (+1) = 15.

            15 – 3 = 12.

            …Which also doesn’t equal 11. But pretty close.
