Revenge of the Wild Card Review

The card is pretty insane in some way, but I’m still not sure what kind of way it is. Summoning all of the Beasts that died this turn for just 2 mana is a crazy effect. The thing is, even getting a single minion like Bearshark or one of your Animal Companions back is already good tempo play. Getting one of the biggest Beasts is straight up insane.

A thing that a lot of folks are talking about is Flark's Boom-Zooka, but I don’t think that it’s going to work. Any Flark’s deck is still incredibly clunky. You would need to build a deck with only big Beasts in it (no other minions at all), don’t draw them, then play Boom-Zooka and this on Turn 10. In theory, if you get 2x Charged Devilsaur and King Krush, that’s 2x 7/7 + 8/8 on the board, all of which can immediately attack. But that’s a pipe dream – the chance that they will still be in your deck by Turn 10 (assuming the best case scenario of drawing this + Boom-Zooka before T10) is incredibly low.

Recruit Hunter might be a deck to play this in, but it’s not 100% optimal. On the one hand, you do have some big Beasts, but on the other, they often die on your opponent’s turn, not on yours. Unless you can stick a 5/5 Devilsaur and trade it on your turn, the card might be dead until much later into the game. Also, the deck runs Prince Keleseth, but it’s probably the “worst” deck for Keleseth out of all current Keleseth decks, so cutting it wouldn’t be the end of the world. But then again, getting a 2 mana 5/5 in the mid game after you trade your Devilsaur, or getting a 2 mana Witchwood GrizzlyCharged Devilsaur later in the game is tempting.

But in the end, the deck I think would want to use this most is some kind of Midrange Hunter, maybe Secret Hunter. Those run quite a lot of Beasts, and like I’ve mentioned, just getting a single 3-drop is worth it, although you would aim for more. For example, it might be a good follow-up to a Spellstone that wasn’t AoE’d. If your opponent has dropped some minions to trade into your 3/3’s, you can trade them off first and then revive with this card.

It also has nice synergy with Unleash the Hounds – you can double it for extra 2 mana assuming you traded all of your Hounds. If you happened to trade another Beast on the same turn, that’s even more value.

Overall, the card has a lot of potential and I would be surprised if it didn’t see any play over its time in Standard. In a Beast-heavy deck, it doesn’t take a lot to get value out of it, and the tempo swing potential is massive after certain turns. The only downside is that it’s a bad card to topdeck if you have no Beast to trade, and that it does nothing when you’re behind on the board and can’t stick a minion, because everything you play dies right away (unless you can combo it with some Charge/Rush minions, that is).

Card rating: 8/10

    Saying it won’t work with Flark is a little naive. If you have deathrattle minions and then pull them with flark, then this would be insane. Turn 10:
    Play Flarks boomzooka, pulls Savannah highmane, arfus and the beast. All attack and die,
    Play revenge of the wild to resummon them,
    Leaves you with a 6/5, a 9/7 3 x 2/2s, a deathknight card in hand having dealt 17 damage.

    If this isn’t tempo then I’m not sure what is!

    Giggling Inventoresque. I confirmed the 2-3 beasts this plays for two mana all say “Hello”. Seriously a huge disappointment to see this. Why?

    Win more card. Won’t see play. You’re talking about having extra value after having katherina on play. But you have already won the game if you have the time to play katherina. Not very good.

      2 mana N’zoth without deathrattles(some of them even have a deathrattle), this card is busted.

    Imagine if you recruit a King Krush with Katherna, hit his face, cube it, do this twice, then do play dead, there would be 40 damage to your opponents face. This is just too OP

      That’s also a five card combo that needs to be begun a turn before in a class that has never had substantial draw.

    A strong 2 mana card, decks that run this won’t be able to run Keleseth.

    “We’re nerfing Fiery War Axe cause we think it is too powerfull, and it offers too much for only 2 mana”
    -Said Blizzard
    Like, wtf… it is easily a good 4 mana card. It offers tooooo much it it hits only ONE beast. 2 mana re-unleash the hounds, 2 mana Fuck Randomness Y’ll Shoot The Boomzooka Right At Your Face, 2 mana replay any beast that you probably ALREADY chose to be in your deck… holy fuck, thats meta breaking

    • Soup And Salad
      November 21, 2018 at 10:03 pm

      This will both rotate AND can’t be played on curve. That’s the most important difference between this and War Ax.

    There is no way this card is real, do you guys even realise how broken this card is? If its real its going to become the most powerfull card in the entire game

    • Track Sparrow
      November 21, 2018 at 12:23 pm

      Wops misread the effect, my bad. Its not so broken after all

    This and the Zooka could make for a very strong swing turn!

    ………..not even a legendary, so for 4 mana you can cast it twice (potentially of course). I play a lot of Hunter and was feeling deflated at the power of some of the cards other classes are getting, but this makes me feel sorry for everyone else now. Vive Rexxar

    Revenge of the Wild is a very efficient card, but this screams win more rather than lose less. If you can use your big beasts to trade up into even bigger minions rather than dealing direct damage to the hero, you were probably going to win anyway.

    It’s good, but it’s good in the same way as Kel’thuzad.

      As mentioned in the review, you can at the very least double up on UTH, when playing from behind. That’s a strong comeback mechanic.

    sorry i think everyone is overhyping this card. in most cenarios its a dead card in your hand. if you win with beasts+cubes on board u mostly winning anyway, so no reason to summon back ur minions after trading. maybe im wrong tho,
    2/5 stars

      The only matchup it would actually be super usefull is taunt druid, but how dead is this deck 😀

    Yeah this is Gucci fam.
    I see Charged devilsaur trading then coming back then making me kill myself.

    This looks broken, but we’ll have to see if it’s a dead card more often than not. Just thinking on dropping Scavenging Hyena + UTH + then this makes my mouth water, and that’s not the best combo out there.

    Broken with normal beasts, specially deathrate minions, not necessary think in combo. Nerf to 4 mana in one month :p

    • Soup And Salad

      This card is only really playable when you’re ahead already. Obviously, it’s low cost does mean it won’t take that much to get decent value out of it, but you do need your beasts to die on your turn, something that isn’t exactly easy at points.

  20. Nickname23
    November 21, 2018 at 5:40 am

    Very powerfull combined with Rush, Charge, Deathrattle Minions.
    The scaling within this card seems broken to me. It’s already a decent play if you revive a Bearshark on Turn 4 for only two mana. Midgame could be a Highmane + X for only two mana, lategame a Build a Beast board or something for only two mana. Card looks like a Value + Tempo King to me. 5/5

    Absolutely broken. This card its going to get nerf

  22. Moltar
    November 21, 2018 at 4:15 am

    Wtf this card is so good.

    Even if you don’t build your deck around it is usefull, 2 mana get 1 or 2 average beasts you used to trade is enough to get value. Even if you only use it to get huffer back is good.

    No Guy Guys, u dont see the meme potential. U play king Smorc, Coin doomsayer. Next turn they all die, u play revenge of the wild, cube the King, play dead into play dead, terror scale stalker creating 6 9,9 for a total of 54 smorc damage!!!! NEW META

    • Sammy
      November 21, 2018 at 4:10 am

      OK he’s an 8,8 so 8×6 will only be 48 but still this is hunters new goal in life!!!

    • Trollizzard
      November 21, 2018 at 4:47 am

      You only get 5 King Crushes tho, since cube and Terrorscale take up 2 spaces on the board 🙁

      • Tricklas
        November 21, 2018 at 5:46 am

        Use play dead instead of terrorscale and u get with 2 revenge and playdead 6 Crushes. Most warriors are outrange of 5 KC i am glad we can attack 7 times with it 🙂

    • Zapher12
      November 21, 2018 at 5:26 am

      In a situation where your King could survive (so he can be killed by doomsayer) until your turn, why would you play doomsayer in the first place? Next turn just hit+cube+play dead+….
      Element of surprise?

      mmmh revenge of the wild (2) + cube (5) + play dead (1) + play dead (1) + terrorscvale stalker (3) = 12 mana.

      11 mana combo? If it dies on your opponent turn it doesn’t trigger.

    Has synergy with the legendary spell but I don’t think is as broken as people say. Really situational.
