If this is the kind of game they are after, then I don't really know how to describe it. Providing such a card that tolerates a concept they've been condemning for ages, so when things go south, they make an excuse to nerf another heavily playable card instead (or along with). Something doesn't feel right here and completely doesn't make sense.
I guess we shouldn't blame the players anymore if the developers already know what's up and yet still make what we are beholding right now.
Even though the card doesn't seem promising to me presently -in any archetype- as I see it, the idea of thinking about it and actually turning it into reality tells a lot.
If they really think that it's okay to have strong aggro/face hand-dumping decks and archetypes wandering around, then they shouldn't really play the role of defenders of the light who shall befall retribution upon those who cause games to be less fun to play.
You can't harass members who play Face Hunter, nor are they compelled to make preemptive apologies or justifications for playing it. They don't hack or crack their opponents' game, they simply play existing cards that form a specific deck. If you suck at countering Face Hunter, you should blame the designers, not the community.
"As part of ongoing communication with the WoW developers, it has been agreed that Hearthstone is now the official source of WoW lore. We hope you look forward to seeing Ragnaros, Lightlord in Legion!"
Meh. Slightly worse Lost Tallstrider most of the time, and casting it with upside means you either are already losing, or already winning. We'll see, I guess, but I can't see this in midrange builds, and I don't hink face hunter is in the market for non-charge four drops.
Blizzard "Entertainment" created a strategy that revolved around destroying fun cards and decks with no regard for a diverse metagame. Putting together crazy combos and playing big minions make an overall game of Hearthstone more fun and compelling, but facing mindless aggro decks 95% of games is not particularly fun or interactive.
they should let noxious and the chiv design new hunter cards instead.. this new card doesnt help getting hunter out of the facesmash stereotype. Y U NO print strong board presence minions like highmane/houndmaster

Like pro active priest but don't want to play C'thun or Dragon? Try this! 4Head
For people saying "BGH counters", no, not really. Given that this occupies a 4 slot, BGH doesn't get much value if you play it against Core Hound. Core Hound MAY see usage should a control/midrange hunter come up, it has decent combo value.
