    Haha this and the new weapon are awesome. Finally you can kill your own hero without any help from the oponent. Just remeber play dubble battlecry.

    Only real good reason for this is to make the old hunter hero a little bit worse. Sence now there is one beast you don’t want to pick….

      Let me fix that for you.

      Hello WORSE Pit lord.

      At least pit lord had premium 5 mana stats, this thing is sub-par for a 4-drop.

    This card actually has some interesting applications, specifically for heal packages (obviously Zoo and maybe Paladin). I think 5 health is a bit too steep a price to pay for 1 health over Spider Tank, but this is a Beast and life is a resource, so who knows? Think if it goes anywhere, though, it’s a heal deck.

    Kind of bad.
    Don’t see why do would play this in any deck, even in arena and other game modes. Warlock has better cards and paladin wouldn’t want this.

    just play augmented elekk it one less health for the same card and you do not take 5 damage and will help you out in some situations Ornery Tortoise dose not have taunt (for some reason) but do watch out for this card in warlock zoo though

      Lol. It’s 1 more health. It looks like it doesn’t matter to you. But it’s a very huge difference in term of tempo. This is basically the best neutral 3 drop for aggressive deck.

    This card literally makes you pay 5 HP for 1 HP (compared to other 3/4 cards that actually have other benefits). Even in Warlock you would not want to hurt yourself that much. This is garbage.

      In aggressive decks your amount of hp doesn’t matter. Paying 5 hp isn’t relevant at all. 1 hp more on a minion is a big difference. You can take better trades against other aggressive decks and have board control. It’s the best 3 drop for aggressive decks.

        Pit lord says hello, having never been played in zoo despite being a 4 mana 5/6 demon.

          Because a 4 mana 5/6 is too expensive to be played in a zoolock deck and you have better choices. Zoolock is the aggro deck with the lowest mana curve in the game because of the hero power. You play up to 14 one drop in this deck. This card is more like flame imp than pit lord btw. And it’s a neutral.
