    So i have gotten this off of Rhok’delar a few times in spell hunter now, and the card is actually pretty versatile. You can use it to get around summoning sickness on a minion. And you can also use it to have a minion attack twice. I might replace one Tracking with this in my spell hunter, because Tracking has bad synergy with Zul’jin.

    You guys are missing the awesomeness of this card.
    Turn 1, Pally uses his one cost hero power to put down a 1/1.
    Your turn comes. Gurubashi Chicken, coin The Beast Within. Chicken insta attacks and overkills shitty paladin token.
    You now have a 7/1 Gurubashi Chicken.

    5/5. Will troll someone with chicken deck again.

    Honestly I don’t see why people are complaining. Yeah it’s pretty bad in terms of value but remember that this is hunter, you gotta be careful with the stat boosts to make sure they don’t get out of hand and break the meta. Yes this should be +2/+2 and it would be great as a cheap boost and potential removal, but then everyone else would complain how their making too much aggro stuff. This feels about as fair as you could make it. 4/5

    Enrage synergy, or windfury for 1 turn. Hmmmmm…

    Big hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm………

    The card is worse removal than hunter’s mark but has better synergy with the new DK.

    This is pretty good aggro card though. 1 mana +1/1 and pretty strong “windfury/rush” effect.

    Id say the card is 3/5 in a pure beast deck. Very playable and with the newfound draw in Hunter, you can maybe fit in some low mana removal. Don’t know if the archetype will be viable though.

    I don’t see how this card is that bad. Combined with other cards like masters call, the beast hunter archetype is looking good.

      Okay flavour too.
      Can’t they make a decent, balanced card that’s not meta-defining without it getting a bad rating?

        Well I just don’t think it will be strong enough in a beast deck since it will have better cards in it, also I don’t think this is decent, I think it’s very bad, why take that over other 1 drops or tracking and candle shot and hunters Mark, the main issue is that there are already enough one drop cards in hunter that it doesn’t need another.

          Those are all good cards you listed. This is decent.
          Not every new player is going to be #1 legend in a day.
          My original point still stands, a card can be made not to fit into a top tier, competitive deck but just as a balanced addition to the game (doesn’t matter if it’s not that powerful).

    Could be good, but it’s hard to tell right now. I do like that the beast is wrecking shop on those murlocs

    I’m just confused why there are myeloma in the card art when it can only be played onto a beast

      *myeloma
      Was that autocorrect or some sort of cancerous pun?

      There is a beast attacking the murlocs in the art.
      ( maybe Blizzard is trying to suggest this is good against murloc decks, idk. )

        This comment was ‘awaiting moderation’ for like seven hours.
        I’m not complaining, this is actually a good, regulated website.

    Ok, but not worth running.

    2/5

    I think people are going to sleep on this card. There are a decent amount of charge/rush minions for midrange hunter to essentially get a wind fury effect for 2 extra mana. Taking two for 1 trades or even your minion surviving both attacked is great value.

    That’s not obvious at all.

    Oondasta likes this card turn 10 summon oondasta overkill a minion play this and overkill a second minion.

      Good idea
      People are quick to rate this card low before considering combos like that.

        Was first thing I thought of now this is my dream stitched tracker get copy of krush (happened before) draw regular krush.

        Turn 9 set up for 2 over kills turn 10 play oondasta over kill minion summon krush play this overkill again summon second krush.

        16 dmg to face thank you very much.

    Would go great in a Midrange Beast Hunter deck which seems to be the archetype getting buffed this expansion. Based off voting so far, this could be the card that everyone poops on that comes back to make people look foolish. 1 mana Rush on a beast if you just played it or a pseudo Windfury on a minion that can attack this turn as well. Love the card. 4/5

    Non creative players will hate this, but holy shit am I amped to try it xD

    Not a flattering comparison to either Goblin Prank or Hunter’s Mark. Hunter has bad draw, he can’t afford playing low-impact 1-cost spells.

    Actually pretty solid in some spots, you can value trade then pseudo windfury to kill off a minion. Will never see proper constructed play though, 3 stars

    Why though?

      Attack a minion to value trade then use this card. Pseudo windfury and buff for one mana? Opop.

      obvious synergy with the new hunter hero card
