    I really hope the other Hunter cards are handbuff in nature, otherwise this card is REALLY weak in standard right now.

    With existing handbuffs, this can be ok. It's a decent amount of value overall, but I don't think it's a powerhouse unless you can buff it a lot.

    I have no idea why this card costs 5.

    When you think about it, how often it is that hunter's hand-related tactics ever worked in standard? From Big Dreams to Hunting Party, every one of them are good on paper but on practice often falls flat.

    So this card wants you to be using cards like Bestial Madness but the problem is that hunter simply dont need/rely on such things to ever be good. So you give up 2 mana to buff your hand, then your opponent plays a 3 drop on an empty board and youre practically dead. Its really is just like that most of the time for hunter.

    There's only two things of note here; firstly that we're heading towards rotation in 5 months time and a smaller pool will certainly benefit this card greatly. And secondly, if ever you get this card to 9 attack he'll get you King Krush, meaning its entirely possible to get double KK if handbuff is convenient enough to be done.

    But really. Just play arcane hunter for a match and you'll instantly see why hunter doesn't need convoluted shit like this.

    So a card that wants both handbuffs and board buffs, eh? This could be good, but it really depends on the support it gets.
