Scoring classes based on cards released and likely hood i would play any specific class after release based on cards revealed. The value i see in this new set ranks hunter dead last like litterly the 2 best cards the class got were the spell stone and katrina so far which the spell stone i think is one of the best released. However based on cards released hunter is signifacntly worst off than every other class this expansion thinking how likely will these cards see play from the class cards only ... The amount of varients on existing hunter decks based on whats released I see trying maybe 1-2 decks running varients of Katrina and emerald spell stone and thats about it.
Scoring each card in the set - maximum possible score of 100 minimum possible score of 10
This is just based on what i think the population will do with existing cards average value per card the likely hood the card will see play with some slight favortism towards a couple of cards i think are sleepers however it basically says hunter got garbage and the community probably would agree that they got the shaft overall on cards.
So, if minion based decks are part of the KaC Meta, full Spell/Secret Hunter could counter some specific decks (RIP against Priest tho). To My Side!'s role would be stabilizing (2x 4/4 Taunt or 2x 4 damage), applying pressure and/or "winning more" and i think it would do a good job at all of them (kind of like CotW before nerf - able to swing the board in your favor or seal the game).
But only if you could choose the Animal Companions you get from this card. If not, this card is more than unplayable and deserves the "Dust it!" rating it is getting right now.
Personally i hope this card becomes atleast playable. Maybe the Hunter weapon will be good enough to turn Spell Hunter with To My Side! into a halfway decent deck, because i really like the theme of this card. Also this wouldn't be a pure SmorC deck like almost all Hunter decks in the past, which is nice.
The biggest thing here is this cards is litterly worst in every way than other cards in the same set emerald spell stone is superior to it in the same set for less mana. Oh I played 2 secrets and got 24 points worth of stats vs oh i have 0 minions.... i got 14 points of stats and payed 1 extra mana.
And the winner is Emerald Spell stone....
The 2 Best hunter cards in the set are the stone and Katrina...are they good enough to out value what other classes got ... no hunter got boned if that legendary isnt amazeballs and those 3 commons arnt like the best commons hunters seen in a long time.
Legendary bow playing free secrets or some jazz with like 3 common beasts or removal spells that are just a+ or some crazy draw mechanic to redeam hunter.
Can't help but laugh at some non-ironic claims that some sort of minion-less Hunter might end up being playable.
Anyway, this card is an insult to Hunter players. Even the classes with much stronger spells can't afford to play a deck without minions, let alone poor Rexxar. If you want class to be dog feces tier, might as well remove it from the game. I mean, Crushing Walls first, now this? Is legendary weapon going to be some Cursed Blade level garbage as well? The class is already in a pretty bad spot and it receives some of the worst cards that this game has ever seen. Mind blowing.
Its shocking that it has this requirement. It just makes sense given the other two animal companions cards that this should cost 6. What in the world am I missing?
Your missing, that animal copanion is random, and cotw cant summon a double. There are many worlds were I would prefer double huffer/misha over cotw tripple even if it would cost 9 this however just costs 6.
So is there confirmation yet if this effect is random or do you get to choose the minion? Because it doesn't say random. Not that it would really help the card. It would go from being "Dust it" to "Ehh Dust it I guess".
How are so many people missing the value of this card? If you are running no minions you are probably already running two animal companions and 2 Call of the Wilds. Then add this to your 6 drop curve for another 2 companions. This card will definately see play. If you play this in a deck that isnt built for it, of course its bad.
This looks super crappy... but... knowing blizzard, this card is telling us something about the legendary weapon for hunter!
I think warrior and hunter weapons will be the best ones seeing as they are saving them for last. I hope...
Nah, they're not even trying to make decent hunter cards. If this card always summoned 2 animal companions for 6 mana it would probably suck anyway since you can play highmane on 6. I just hate this bullishit. They're keeping making 3 and 6 drop for hunter that are WORSE than all that already exist. Hunter will suck this season too. Good job blizzard, keep printing good cards for the top tier classes and shit for the classes that struggle. Good job. Nice one.
Setting up bullshit nerfs for animal companion, highmane, and eaglehorn.
