    If you get this on a beast that costs 5 or more, it’s essentially paying for itself as a 1 mana 5/5 beast. Great combo with the 6/9 bloodstinger, highmane, or king krush. Great in a singleton deck if that ends up happening, but works just as good in midrange. 5/5

    In wild you get to king krush+cube+play dead for 24 dmg. Maybe that will elevate egg hunter.

    Did some one say Big Hunter?! No? Nobody said Big Hunter? This card is really good, it has ridiculous combo potential and it’s definitely worth its weight in mana. 4/5.

    A very powerful Card for Beast Hunter, but you would either have 1 Copy of this card Or 2 Copies but you would have to Sacrifice either a Savannah Highmane (which is a bummer), or some other 4-6 Mana Card instead. On one hand, it almost feels like playing a pre-nerfed Creeper back in Kobolds and Catacombs, and on the other hand, you have no idea where you can put this deck for Beast Hunter. So, this will force Beast Hunter to either come up with a solution to make a slower and riskier but more Reward Deck, or they feel that they are now finally comfortable to play a Bigger Beast Hunter overall, which I still doubt that it’s going to happen. I Can’t exactly give it 5 Stars, because It’s a Creeper for Bigger Beast Hunters, but at the same time, I have no idea where I can put this card, to begin with, or if I could even have 2 copies of it. Only time will tell, but my prediction is that Mech Hunter will still reign supreme. Wump Wump. 4 Stars…. Again.

      Don’t even need bigger beasts just need the rhino at 0 cost and to survive into late game then you win

      Possible OTK has already been brought up involving this card tagging Rhino playing zuljin late game after playing Unleash the Beast x4 times and Animal Companion x2 times. Long as fields empty and RNG doesn’t hit your minions that can make 30 attack minimum on the board.

    0 Mana Thundra Rhino
    0 Mana Witchwood Grizzly
    1 Mana Savannah Highmane
    1 Mana second copy of itself
    2 Mana Amani War Bear
    4 Mana Oondasta
    4 Mana King Krush

    Now hitting a cheap beast with this can sometimes feel punishing too, so I’d say it sounds like an overall powerful card that still requires you to play and/or build accordingly around it in order to get the right payoff. Love it

    Hunter probably has the non-beast earlygame tools to make “big beast” a thing, the same way Katrina Hunter was a thing, and Early Secrets+Big Mechs Paladin was a thing for a while.

    With these two minions and Brann, I wonder if there’s gonna be Battlecry boosters for Hunter printed, as well…

      Please don’t give Hunter that stupid hero power from Kobolds I don’t wanna see Hunter dropping cost of all the beasts in hand. Would just encourage Hunter to troll out direfrenzy masters call with big beasts.

      But seriously from what seen so far the quest rewards seem to be exact copies or similar to other HP from solo adventures or boosted HP.

      Druid, shaman. Taken right from solo adventure. Pally is basically similar to waxmancer sturmy. Warlock is upgraded hero power with Wilfred Fizzlebang. Mage reward is pretty much a random primordial glyph.

      So it stands to reason others will follow along, hunters could even give permanent targetted hero power. Not great but considering it would basically be an upgraded mage hero power not bad of a reward.

    This will see experimentation simply to try and make it tag rhino which honestly isn’t all that hard several times I got stuck with that and a crappy minion in hand without a way to make use of the crappy minion.

    “Wow, it’s basically a 1 mana 5/5!”… not. By that logic, Dreampetal Florist is a 0 mana 4/4. Now, let me tell you: if Dreampetal Florist was ACTUALLY a 0 mana 4/4, Token Druid would be all over it. Of course, Dreampetal Florist is not a 0 mana 4/4, just like Scarlet Webweaver is not a 1 mana 5/5.

    For starters, you need 6 actual mana to play it, so you can’t play it on turn 1. Best case scenario is playing this on turn 6 and then playing a follow-up Tundra Rhino or Stranglethorn Tiger at no extra cost. Problem is, Midrange hunter runs a ton of cheap beasts: the most popular version of the deck runs six copies of 1-mana beasts, three copies of 2-mana beasts, and one 5-mana beast. The curve is low on purpose because there’s plenty of reload in cards like Marked Shot, Master’s Call, Unleash the Beast and Zul’jin… this card doesn’t mesh well with the Master’s Call game plan.

    You could run this in a deck full of bigger, more expensive beasts… until you realize you’re playing Hunter and you don’t have the best defensive tools to play for the lategame value wins. Card shows potential, but I don’t see a home for it right now. 3/5

      I think this card fits better a hunter deck with lots os spells…

    If you manage to use it on Tundra Rino, its possible to use Zul’jin and Rino on the same turn, giving charge to up to 4 wyverns and 2 animal companions… up to 30 face damage

      Good point..! Yikes. That sounds scary good, but will hunter make it that far? We’ll see.. I’m mostly curious about the quest now, it’s probably tied to bigger minions which is very refreshing for hunter
