Vicious Scalehide Card Review
We’ve seen this card quite a lot on the stream yesterday, but to be honest, it was never really good by itself… Even though it has both Rush and Lifesteal, which is a nice combo, the 1/3 stats for 2 mana make it a bit weak. Realistically, you will be able to trade into some 1 health 1-drops and tokens, but that’s it. Without buffs, this card is pretty bad.
However, I really like it as a part of the Build-a-Beast Deathstalker Rexxar Hero Power. It should be updated with all the new minions when Witchwood launches. Adding both Rush and Lifesteal for just 2 mana to your beast can be really nice. 3 health also makes it a nice combo with high attack / low health minions.
Card rating: 2/10
It’s a solid beast to have around in standard. It’s a good choice with Deathstalker Rexxar’s hero power.
When Hunter gets another one cost beast at least on the same level as Dire Wolf, Midrange Hunter will be enough of a force on ladder again, but I don’t think this will see play in that outside of Zoombeasts.
Pretty okay Arena Card, if you have nothing else to Choose.
Dire Frenzy – 2 cards, 5 mana 4/6 Rush Beast with Lifesteal, then 3 copies in your deck for 2 mana each. That’s solid. With DK REX, this is an extra Hunter class card.
This is baaaaaaaaaad to include in your deck. Lifesteal is nonsense in the early game. But yes, as others have pointed out, this is a buff to DK Rexxar, as combining it with another beast will make it a very powerful Zombeast. 1/5 stars in Constructed, 4.5/5 stars when chosen as part of a Zombeast.
Yes it is a lot better than the 5 mana 4/4 lifesteal for DK Rex
DK Rexxar just got a whooole lot better
As a cards alone is not that great BUT it gives a lot of survivability to Rexxar DK if you get it with a high attack minion, just because of that is a 3 star for me.
