    Cool card: pairs nicely with Highmane and Spider Bomb. Oblivitron is straight up a losing card if you ever play it; please don’t use this card to justify playing Oblivitron.

    ” Now where’s my pet?” you say. Now where’s my Cathrina? 😉 Good card for deathrattle hunter, that is basicly rotating out. I was very much wondering why is hunter still getting deathrattle triggers and i happened to remember that mech bobm hunter is still i nthe game. Maybe al lthouse cards are there to activate your bobs for extra preshure. But we are stil lwaiting for the piloted shredders :D. Or maybe a sneeds effect? Can see play in wild. Deathrattle hunter is a big deal there.
    It basicly multiplyes a card from your deck and it multiplyes it deathrattle. So mechanical whelps give you 2x 7/7and a 2/2 boddy somewhere along the line. It is the cube of the expansion and it is a bit more balanced. And a bit cheeper. Discover is just overkilling it to be fair. A friendly minion with deathrattle is enough specifying the minions you are getting without making it a discover.
    It has place i nhutner decks and i think more mechs are about to come in this expansion.

    “Its so good with Oblivitron!” -That Guy

    The Plan: Draw a 1/30 card, play it and have it die without cc, play this card, get some stats on board

    Its like a combo deck, but instead of OTK its just a good tempo play! Just think of your opponents face when turn 13 rolls up and you cheat out 3 WHOLE MANA worth of stats. He will probably so mad as he slams down his Maly! -Blizzard

    Uuuuuuuuuuuugh, Mecha’thun hunter somehow? Play in whenever or somehow cheese it out. Then, play this card, hunter’s mark, & arcane shot or any direct damage spell for the easy 5 mana combo. One could legit run only Mecha’thun, this card, cheap spells (almost all of whom deal direct dmg for hunter), and auctioneer.

    assuming you have no mechs in hand
    discover oblivotron, which would trigger its effect so would it re summon oblivotron for 3 mana

      A 3/4 for 3 mana?!? Super OP card will see serious tournament play.

    Deathrattle Hunter MIGHT be a thing BUT not this expansion. This is a must in future archetype and obvious synergy with Oblivitron.

    This is most powerful in combination with Oblivitron. Play your Oblivitron on turn 6, get it killed on turn 7, summon a Mechanical Whelp from your hand and trigger its deathrattle; then play Nine Lives, get another copy of Oblivitron into your hand, and summon a Mecha’Thun or Damaged Stegotron from your hand with the second deathrattle activation. Pretty massive stats!

    The problems with this gameplan are: 1. Awkward early game. Deathrattle Hunter could have a meaningful board presence several turns earlier thanks to Devilsaur Egg, Terrorscale Stalker and Play Dead, but all of those are rotating out. 2. Unreliability. How many big mechs are you going to have in your deck as a part of this combo? Deathrattle Hunter didn’t need that many because Kathrena summoned them from your deck, but Oblivitron can only summon them from your hand. Besides, you could look for Kathrena with Stitched Tracker, but you won’t be able to do the same for Oblivitron, so there’s a good chance you won’t draw it until much later into the game. Of course, you could just play out a Mechanical Whelpling, get it killed, and use Nine Lives with that… if it doesn’t get Hexed or Polymorphed or Sapped.

    All in all, Nine Lives looks powerful, but unreliable. With more support, this could become scary strong. 3/5

      The problem with that gameplan is you already lost because you’re playing a tier 50 deck

    I’m not sure what having 9 lives has to do with Sylvanas thematically… maybe her spirit is possessing the lion? I’m not sure. Either way, seems like an odd design choice for her

    HOLY #&$! This is the deathrattle card of deathrattle cards. Gimme Gimme Gimme. If only the Carnivorous Cube wasn’t rotating out. Imagine: Nine Lives + Carnivorous Cube + King Irish/Oondasta. Oh, brother! Talk about Hunter OP. 5/5 in my book.

      Resurrected carnivorous cube won’t have any minions in its deathrattle

    A deck that just runs Spider Bombs and this sounds annoying as hell.

    We’ll have to see what other deathrattle effects come around; not sure if Spider Egg/Obliviotron/Mechanical Welp are quiiiite enough on their own to make Deathrattle Hunter a thing again.

    Note too that Nechromechanic is still in the wings, and Nine Lives works wonderfully with it for lategame plays. If you want to see REAL greed: Between this card, Necromechanic, Undatakah, and Zuljin, you can pop off the same Deathrattle more than a dozen times (!?!).

    “Oblivitron is a trash card” They said.
    “1/2 Stars” they gave it.

    Oblivitron: Hold my beer.

    I know that Devilsaur egg has just rotated, but there are a bunch of other eggs this works with. Past eggs, it has a very good effect that allows you to adapt to different situations depending on what has died that game. 3.5/5

    Hmmmmm. They’re putting out a lot of cards that would be rather terrifying in wild. Let’s look at that eggs, sneeds shredder, sylvanas. Do you need more? Not to many big value cards for standard ATM anymore outside of say tagging the kill random enemy deathrattle but we’ll have 5 more expansions with this card.

      as a mainly wild player I agree, wild is surprisingly balanced right now with that last batch of nerfs. but all this deathrattle synergy overload they keep slamming in hunter makes me this that balance is going to be short lived. but maybe not, the overall power level in wild is much higher so it might not end up mattering at all.

      • Lluadian

        There’s alot of cards appearing that have terrifying synergy with cards that are in or going into wild. Untill the 2 cost spell for warlock was revealed the best hope for fell Lord was with skull of manari sense demons in wild which still is a better play instead of a turn 9-10 play we have now. The priest ressurect Lego is scary for big priest since at worst it can pull Barnes but it can also pull itself and the 8-10 cost as a rez. Overall I think this is one of the biggest boosts wild deck types have gotten since year if the mammoth.

    Post-rotation, Hunter is only left with two deathrattle class-cards (spiderbomb and Savannah highmane). There are obviously good neutral deathrattles that would combo well with this (mechanical welp, cairne) but I think we need to see some more powerful class deathrattles for this to go anywhere. Right now, oblivitron aint gonna cut it.

    Wait, does this summon the minion or add it to your hand?

    • Joeydungee
      March 30, 2019 at 7:26 am

      Adds it to your hand

    • Xopods
      March 30, 2019 at 7:28 am

      Gotta be hand. Resurrection isn’t a Hunter effect, and the Discover keyword generally means it goes in your hand unless it specifies otherwise.

    March 30, 2019 at 7:06 am

    This feels OP

    • Xopods
      March 30, 2019 at 7:26 am

      It’s definitely good, not sure about OP. If the Discovered copy was going on the board it would be… but the Discover keyword on its own means it goes in your hand.

      Discover a copy of a minion that died this game is a 1-Mana effect. So then you’re paying 2 mana to trigger a Deathrattle. How good that is depends on what the Deathrattle is… Savannah Highmane would be a good standard to look at. So for your other 2 mana, you’re summoning two 2/2s. Which is good value but not insane… you’d expect a card that can’t be played on curve to produce more value than one which can.

        With Oblivotron this could be great.

          March 30, 2019 at 7:46 am

          Yessss, I’d forgotten about that card. Hunter Deathrattle Mech is going to be a weird archetype.

          • Goldenpantss
            March 30, 2019 at 11:25 am

            Yeah. Hunters deathrattles aren’t that broken I guess.
            If priest gets hold of this tho……
