Master’s Call

Master’s Call Card

Master’s Call is a 3 Mana Cost Epic Hunter Spell card from the Core Set 2024 set!

Card Text

Discover a minion from your deck. If all 3 are Beasts, draw them all.

Flavor Text

"Hello? Yes, this is Huffer."

Master’s Call Card Review

This is another “deck building” card like Reno JacksonBaku the Mooneater or the Hunter’s own Rhok'delar. You see, discovering a single minion from your deck for 3 mana is absolutely terrible. You can already do that with a 2/2 body stapled into it and it doesn’t even see much play (Stitched Tracker). You basically NEED to get 3 Beasts for it to be worth, because drawing 3 for 3 is great.

Since it’s a Discover effect, running even a single non-Beast card could mess with it A LOT. If you run 10 different minions, 1 of which is not a Beast, you already have 30% chance to see it in Discover, ruining the “draw 3” effect (and Hunter decks are generally pretty spell-heavy, so they would realistically run even less minions). Running 2-3 non-Beasts would make it unplayable. So you need a dedicated Beast deck, but does such a thing even exist? Right now, no, it does not. But even if it did, you’d still want to run something like Houndmaster – it’s one of the main reasons to run a Beast deck in the first place. Cutting Houndmaster Shaw is also a difficult decision. Could you risk running it and making this card fail quite often? Hard to say, I would guess not.

If you’re building a full Beast deck, then yes, it’s an auto-include. But honestly? In a faster Beast deck, I’d rather have Houndmaster, and in a slower Beast deck, I’d rather have Houndmaster Shaw and Kathrena Winterwisp instead of this for the most part. Not to mention any non-Beast techs you might want to put in.

Card rating; 10/10 in a full Beast deck… but I’d say that 3/10 in general, because you don’t really want to limit your minions only to Beasts

    Get this + Dire Frenzy w/ Zul’jin = profit. Actually, the only cards that spell Hunter has that requires no minions are Rhok’delar and To my side!, which can easily be replaced.

    rhok and 2x tms! -> zul’jin, subject9, “a good beast”
    2x tracking -> 2x Master’s Call
    2x Kill Command (you don’t want to hit your own face, do you, Zul’jin?) -> two “good beasts”
    Flanking strike, Wing Blast, Unleash the Hounds -> those can be wiggled for Dire Frenzy and either more beasts or some replacment spells like Crushing Walls or even Multi-Shot or Cybertech Chip (for Value).

    A “good beast” – well, we have a lot of choice! Bearshark, Razormaw, Diremole, Owl (as a tech card), Crush, Oondasta, Devilsaur, Highmane, Fledgeling, Scalehide (awesome w/ Frenzy). Who knows, maybe one can even find a place for a grizzly and revenge of the wild?

    If not tier 2, than at least a lot of fun – and we don’t know how Hallazi (hunter’s Loa) looks like yet! Easy 4,5/5 for me!

    dose anyone know what happens to this card if you have less then 3 minions left in your deck but the 2 left are beast?

      I’m guessing it will draw two or they will change it so it does so.

      It specifically says “if all 3”, so i guess it wouldn’t trigger with 2 or 1.

    Hunter has traditionally been busted with good card draw (remember pre-nerf Starving Buzzard + UTH combo?). And the Hunter Beast synergies have also always been great. So… is this busted? We will have to wait and see, but I DON’T THINK SO. You see, to make this a great card, your minions can ONLY be Beasts in your deck. And there’s some sweet Beast synergy minions that are hard to cut. Houndmaster? Houndmaster Shaw? Kathrena? Untamed Beastmaster? Those sweet, sweet cards would all need to be cut for this to be good, otherwise you’d rather have a Stitched Tracker, which leaves a 2/2 body behind…

      Couldn’t have said it better myself! Being that “discover” brings up three unique minions, having just one non-beast in your deck has reasonably high odds of destroying this card’s value.

      No doubt that we’ll see some all beast decks as a result of this card, but only time will tell if those decks are viable.

    Obviously this is better in other decks, but even in Spell Hunter there is a decent combo with it. After playing Dire Frenzy you can draw all 3 of the beasts leaving you with lots of value and still no minions in the deck. Somewhat inconsistent, but would be reasonable to get Huffer or Misha from, and at the very least a hound.

      Discover never shows more than one copy so it would show three DIFFERENT minions.

    • Gurkenkraut
      December 5, 2018 at 5:50 am

      I try it but it doesn´t work… when you use Dire Frenzy to shuffel 3 beasts into your Spell Hunter deck and then play Master’s Call it will draw you only one beast.. i hope it is a bug and they will fix it.

    To everybody who finds the wording a bit confusing regarding the Discover effects:

    Cloning Device: Discover a copy of a minion in your opponent’s deck. (You get a copy of that minion)
    Drakonoid Operative: Discover a card in your opponent’s deck. (You get a copy of that card)
    Call of the Master: Discover a minion from your deck. (You draw that minion)

    My best guess is that if you Discover card IN a deck, you get a copy of that card. Although, if you Discover a card FROM a deck, you actually draw that card. If my theory is true, the real culprit that causes confusion is actually Drakonoid Operative, since its text doesn’t say “a copy of a card”…

  6. Oresmus

    The strength of this card is not only limited to draw 3 beasts (most likely). It also makes your deck thinner which means you’re more likely to draw the cards you’re looking for. A bit like tracking effect.

    Targeted drawing -mechanic is awesome, especially in hunter because it lacks card draw.

    • Lllllll

    November 24, 2018 at 8:16 pm

    If you build a deck around this it fine for the fact that it will only discover minions so even if you put 10 beasts and no other minions by turn three you are more than likely to draw 3 off this card. Also this cards power can be compared to book of spectres. Note in a deck that would use this would probably have 15-20 minions.

    It seems really great, most of the time ir can be 3 mana draw 3. It can create a new hunter archetype. And it is targeted draw since you get only special type of cards.
    With this and the other spell to revive beasts that have died during your turn, they are.pushing dome kind of beast hunter. I am waiting for the new hero, and its hero power, hopefully with beast synergy.
    People said that spell hunter.couldn’t be a thing when the legendary weapon got out, beast hunter seems to me an easier archetype to build.

      beast hunter should be the most basic way to build hunter

      actually, midrange hunter is already beast hunter; just swap the secret package for the hyenna’s package and you are set to use this new cards

  12. Organis
    November 24, 2018 at 12:46 pm

    I don’t know what you guys are smoking. This card is bad. Even with 15 beasts in your deck, the chance that all three choices are beasts is really low (don’ know the exact chance but it’ below 50 percent.

    So most of the time this is just a WORSE Stitched Tracker: No copy and no 2/2 body. And Stitched Tracker is already barely worth it.

    Even if it works consistenty then the draw 3 for 3 still is not worth the deck buildaround.

    1/5 bad.

    • SpaghEddy
      November 24, 2018 at 12:57 pm

      Well if you check the wording again it strictly says “Discover a MINION” so you could fill your deck with solely beasts, which I don’t see hunter having trouble with, so it can always be a consistent draw 3

      • Jonnymeerkat
        November 24, 2018 at 2:20 pm

        Organis’ math makes the fatal flaw of calcilting 15 beasts out of 30 cards. But it only includes minions. So a deck filled exclusively with beasts and spells would give you guaranteed 3 card draw.

        So I think the question is actually, what were you smoking?

    • Tim
      November 25, 2018 at 5:40 am

      Actually i think it would be more likely to discover 3 beasts than you think.

      Lets say you play 15minions and 5 of those are non beast. That makes it (67 + 62 + 55) /3=61% chance you get 3 beast to discover.

      Unless HS uses a really weird algoritme this should be more or less the odds. If you play more beast your chance go up ofcourse. But 3 mana draw 3 60% of the time is not bad but not terribly concistant either.

      • Jan
        November 29, 2018 at 8:53 am

        The Chance of getting 3 beasts is (10/15 * 9/14 * 8/13) = 24/91 = 26% in your example with 10 Beats and 5 non-beasts.

      • someguy011348
        January 14, 2019 at 7:57 am

        13/15 of the minions would have to be beasts for there to be a 60% chance to draw 3.

      I don’t get the 5/5 … unless you play like 90% beasts this is strictly worse than Stitched Tracker. And event that is not play anymore in deathrattle hunter.

      If I play 90% Beasts I want to have cards like Houndmaster and Untaimed Beastmaster.

      • Jed
        November 24, 2018 at 1:58 pm

        I still think hunters being able to cycle efficiently is going to be good. Never underestimate card draw.

        November 24, 2018 at 3:31 pm

        ps: sorry by the way, but why the heck people always comment without properly reading what the card does, there is a serious comprehensive problem here

      • Drmengueche
        November 24, 2018 at 5:26 pm

        It’s 5/5 man. The thing that has kept hunter from being absolutely broken is the lack of card draw
        This is targeted draw which is even better. You can play only a handful of big beasts and tutor them on curve, you can play this walong beast master and draw 3 beasts and buff +2+2

        You can diré Frenzy a beast and draw all 3 buffed copies if you build your deck properly

        Don’t underestimate draw specially in a class that made tier one without it. Specially if you can build your deck around it and get full value from the card…

        5/5 is out of the question

        • D3m0n
          November 24, 2018 at 6:01 pm

          This is the problem, if you play the +2+2 buff Untaimed Beastmaster, you get all 3 beasts only reliable if you plan like 14 beast cards.
          If you add Untaimed Beastmaster, Houndmaster, Houndmaster Shaw and Kathrena you can play 20 beasts and get 3 cards with this only 50% or so.

            November 27, 2018 at 12:09 pm

            Just don’t play those, why it’s so hard to understand.
            Subject 9 is a beast too, you can make a draw heavy midrange hunter.

      November 25, 2018 at 12:46 pm

      My point was that the game developers purposely made this not fit into deathrattle or secret hunter as they wanted to encourage new archetypes instead of contributing to existing ones like the Boomsday project did.

      How?! I’d say draw 3 for 3 is pretty insane, especially in hunter.

      • D3m0n
        November 24, 2018 at 6:18 pm

        because it is not draw 3.
        If you run 90% Beasts you draw 3 like 67% of times. (Depending on 1ofs and 2ofs distribution).

        You get this a draw 3 you need like 100% beasts. And that may cause more problems then running Odd or Even Decks.

        • Gobi
          November 24, 2018 at 6:30 pm

          You do see that its minions only right? Its not hard to run only beasts as far as minions go for hunter. This isent spell hunter where you gotta have 100% of the card type or it dosent work and even if it dosent draw you 3 cards for 3 every time discovering a card from your deck is a proven strong mechanic.

        • RhokDelar
          November 24, 2018 at 8:15 pm

  17. B00st3d
    November 24, 2018 at 9:42 am

    Seems like a control oriented card, but has anti synergy with katherina (since you don’t want to draw your beasts), and kathrina is just stronger

    In tempo-midrange type hunters, gotta cut houndmaster, houndmaster shaw, other non-beast minions, gonna be a no from me

    On paper solid power level, but won’t work in the current meta.

  18. Soup And Salad
    November 24, 2018 at 9:28 am

    Three mana draw three (albeit with a restriction) for a class that has historically never really had decent access to card draw will be amazing. However, will Hunter be willing or even able to remove some of the high value, non-beast utility minions like Houndmaster and Shaw in order to get all the value out of Call of the Master? I think yes at least in Midrange Hunter, no in Deathrattle Hunter, and maybe in Secret Hunter.

    Where as the applicability of Revenge of the Wild is questioned by mana, including myself, drawing three cards on the cheap is always going to be appreciated in whatever deck its being played in.

  19. Nickname23
    November 24, 2018 at 8:52 am

    Love the card! That being said, I can’t immagine to play this in Secret Hunter, DR Hunter, Midrange Hunter. A controllish playstyle would fit it more.
    It’s a bit comparable to Mage’s Book of Specters. You can experiment a lot with it in the deckbuilder + playtesting.
    Maybe in Spell Hunter together with Oondasta, King Krush, Devilsaur?
    Or a Dire Frenzy build?

    We’ll see, but I’ll rate it only 2/5, because I don’t think it will end up in the stronger Hunter decks.

  20. Skater Boi
    November 24, 2018 at 8:35 am

    You discover a card. After that, if all of the options were beasts you draw all three. So you gain 1 or 4 cards depending on the options. Not to mention getting a specific beast (looking at you King Crush) is always nice

    • Marcus
      November 24, 2018 at 8:42 am

      no, you would only get 3, for example, the warrior card where you get all three if you have 10 mana.

      • MelaMalone
        November 24, 2018 at 10:35 am

        But it never actually states that you draw the beast you Discover, which often times mean you get a copy of it. The text that states you draw the cards comes after the Discover function. In theory, I would agree with Skater Boi due to the wording. In practice, I could imagine it would draw you the card you Discover, and if they were all Beasts, you would draw the other two as well. The wording is weird though.

        • Piterno
          November 24, 2018 at 11:10 am

          No, a copy doesn’t need to be clarified as a draw, a draw needs to be clarified as a copy. See Stitched Tracker- “Battlecry: Discover a copy of a minion in your deck.”. This says discover a minion in your deck, so it will draw it. For the other effect, it’ll act like Omega Assembly- instead becoming a draw 3 cards and not showing you a discover.

          • MelaMalone
            November 24, 2018 at 5:46 pm

            We only have 2 Discover mechanics that aim to fetch something from your deck as far as I can tell: Stitched Tracker and Shadow Visions. They both clarify their Discover as a copy. Cloning Device leds you Discover from your opponents deck also clarify its Discover as a copy. All other Discover mechanics fetches something outside the deck, and they aren’t clarified as specifically as the former 3 examples. Discover also clarifies in the toolbox: “Choose one of three cards to add to your hand” – add, not draw. Omega Assembly already adds to your hand, and its text is therefore much more given. This second stage, however, is to draw the 3 cards if they are Beasts and it never specifies what happens with the 1 card you Discover, which is why it may add a copy to your hand in addition. However, this is a new type of Discover (we never had a Discover that draws), and I think that it does draw it (not adding), but the wording is weird to me if that’s the case.

          • MelaMalone
            November 24, 2018 at 6:04 pm

            Also, Hearthstone Wiki specifies this rule: “All cards with a Discover effect that doesn’t add the selected card to the player’s hand have an explicit description on the card text of what will be done with the selected card instead, except when for cards that discover a Hero Power (which can’t be added to the hand). This means that, for any card text that discovers a card and that doesn’t specify what is done with it, you can assume it will be added to the hand.”. As this card doesn’t specify what will happen with the Discover (only what will happen if a condition within the Discover is made revolving all 3 cards), it’s fair to assume it will be added to your hand, and not drawn.

          • MelaMalone
            November 24, 2018 at 6:20 pm

            To clarify my point; I believe that it will draw the card and won’t add a copy in practice. If that’s the case, I find it poorly written as it defies Hearthstone Wiki’s ruleset and the official toolbox for the Discover mechanic as the wording suggests it should add it to your hand first, then draw all 3 discoveries.

  21. Lluadian
    November 24, 2018 at 8:34 am

    Let me just say this turn 10 spell hunter. Animal companion 3 mana + dire frenzy 4 mana + call of the master 3 mana.
    I’d say that speaks for itself even possible on turn 9 with coin. Ideally you’d want the boar for 21 dmg next turn but bears good to.

    The problem before with dire frenzy in spell hunter was it interfered with rockdelar and to my side this bypasses that problem. And if don’t have companion anymore it works with deathstalker build a beast.

    • DeadlyPants
      November 24, 2018 at 10:06 am

      I was really excited by this comment, but then I realised that discover never shows duplicate. This means that you’ll never draw the same beast three times with this card =/

          November 24, 2018 at 5:21 pm

          Many of the cards have synergy with the existing quests, but should be powerful in their own right in a non-quest deck, either this year or next. And the conditions for the quest are much more vague then Spell Hunter imo.

    • Gobi
      November 24, 2018 at 6:37 pm

      A part of the theme this expac is trying not to match to any of the big meta decks and unfortunatly spell hunter is one of the two decks blizzard sees as a meta deck for hunter.

    Stitched Tracker will be preferred for a while, since he comes with a body. Also, every current Hunter archetype runs a non-beast they won’t want to give up, whether it’s Secret Hunter’s Secretkeeper and Houndmaster, Midrange’s Shaw and Houndmaster, or Odd’s Leeroy/Wolfriders/Etc. They’d rather just run Tracking than this.

    That said, card draw in Hunter can’t be underestimated, and I think the allure of a 3 mana Tutor 3 is enough incentive to make a Midrange Hunter deck with mostly Beasts. I feel like running Shaw will still be worth it even if you whiff with this card sometimes. If the meta opens up room to run Dire Frenzy (maybe after rotation)? Then this card becomes more attractive too.

      November 24, 2018 at 8:19 am

      Notice the wording is different from Stitched Tracker and Shadow Visions. I believe the discovered card is from your deck. You don’t get a copy, you get that card. If all 3 options are beasts, you get all 3 instead of just the one.

      November 24, 2018 at 8:21 am

      No, you discover one. However, if all 3 are beasts you get to keep all 3 instead.
      Like the Omega mech card for Warrior, except the qualifier is all beats instead of 10 crystals.

            If one if the three isn’t a beast you get a copy of the one you choose. If all three are beasts, you draw all 3 instead (no more copies of those 3 in your deck unless there are duplicates)

            I think the wording says you discover, BUT if the 3 are beasts, you DRAW them.

            BUT, i think it would be 3 discover copies… otherwise its not as useful,

            Note it says “Discover a minion from your deck.” Stitched tracker says “Discover a copy of a minion in your deck.” It cuts the “from” and adds “copy of a”. “Copy of a” clarifies it’s a copy, if you bring up a card that says “discover a card” that isn’t from your deck. The “From” shows that it draws it. Also the thing with the second part of the card is that it would be like Omega Assembly- It wouldn’t show you a discover if they were all beasts.

      If it was copies, it would say copies.

      The two options are:

      1) You draw 1 of three cards
      2) You draw all three
      1) You get a copy of 1 card
      2) You get 1 copy and draw 3 cards

      I couldn’t find any gameplay footage so it could be either.

        It SAYS “Discover a minion *from* your deck. Draw all 3 if they are three beasts.”;
        No mention of copy.

        Compare with Stitched Tracker, which gives you a copy: “Discover a copy of a minion in your deck.” mentions copy, no “From” which is often included in tutor cards (ice fishing: “draw 2 murlocs *from your deck) meaning it’s a draw,

        It’s the first option.

      “Discover a minion from your deck”, instead of creating 3 copies, allowing you to pick one, and then destroying the other 2, shows you 3 cards in your deck, allows you to pick one and shuffles the rest back in. If they were all beasts, it would just show you drawing 3 cards, no discover involved, like Omega Assembly.
