Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Han'Cho seems pretty good.

An 11/11 Tirion seems pretty good. Hell, a 7/6 Bluegill is pretty sick. 9/14 Grommash.

I think it's going to be half decent. There seems to be an attempt to have alot of buffs for hunter.
A bunch of the other cards they released seem pretty decent like rat pack, kodo and knuckles which this card could work pretty well with.

Trump literally just reviewed it and was saying the same thing pretty much

Edit: guessing what's going to be good or not is probably way more luck than skill though. So hard to say what will work and doesn't until they are released and tried out.

21 stats for 7 mana. Can make late game worthless cards like fiery bat a huge body for 1 mana. Decent body, large possible tempo swings. Can be combo'd.

I can't say if it'll see play but that card has a LOT going on

The card set will be around when a lot of the really nasty early game cards of aggro decks rotate out in the spring. So it is a lot more than 0% chance it's good.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

I think Small Time Recruits is the sleeper card of this set.

I do think that you would have been able to empty your hand of non-worgen minions with a high enough frequenzy to make it worth it.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

5/6 body is worth like 4.5 mana and a card, so you're paying 2.5 mana for the battlecry. I think you can probably get there. We'll see how many jackpots there are for the buff - Wickerflame is the one that stands out to me off the top of my head

He kinda reminds me of Ancient of Lore actually

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Yeah, I'm with Bobbo. Not seeing it. You're have a crazy turn 8 play, woo hoo. Or you just run rag and a real 7 drop and call it a day.

Meta is going to have to slow wayyyyyy down for these buff cards to see play.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

plopping down a highmane and grandmother entails not being so far beind on board you can essentially stat dump for 2 turns without pushing real face damage or clearing

In current meta it's 100% trash but it might see play if meta changes.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

If it is a priest meta this might be a decent counter, you can exhaust their removal then turn your small minions into decent threats, i dunno doesnt seem horrific to me, not amazing ofc.

Whenever anyone has uttered the phrase "if the meta changes" about a card...

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

It's not a bad card stats-wise, so it does has legitimate potential.
If it ever see play it will be on Reno deck with a Faceless.

dunno i feel all those hunter decks that played highmane into dr boom did pretty good despite "not pushing damage" those turns

doubt its some staple but maybe curator levels of play?

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Also enables some OTK cheese if you can proc it on leeroy etc. Like windfury + RB + bolt. Obviously likely to be terrible but it "works"

It's not a shaman card.

We haven't seen even 1/4th the cards and no cards yet for Shaman or Warlock, but the meta is almost certainly going to be slower given that Dragon Priests should be pretty popular and Reno-lock/-mage/-rogue decks have gotten an exciting new toy.

Also, taunt warrior may actually become a thing. It's a slow play, but they can put out an AoW on turn 5 now.

5/6 is basically the body (4/6 is kinda more efficient) for anything 5 mana and above as long as it has a good effect

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

on another note, I have no idea why blizzard keeps pushing taunt warrior. out of all classes warrior needs taunts the least and it's such a boring scheme aswell.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Depends if the meta allows people to play understatted cards early to play buffed cards later. It's hard to say that turn 7 is "early" though.
