    That's...a thing, I guess. Hard to see how often it would be useful enough to give up your turn 2 but maybe it slots into Spell Hunter since Cat Trick is rotating.

    Shit I forgot about Cat Trick going away. Sad fucking days.

    Yeah, I think thinking of this as new Cat Trick isn't a bad line of thought. It seems pretty comparable, better in some ways and worse in others... there's some nice upside here, though. If aggro triggers this and you could follow it up with a Houndmaster? That's game winning right there.

    There's no way they're gonna be able to balance for all of the odd-even shenanigans. I mean, Wild was always going to (continue to) be a clusterfuck, but... I just know there are some broken interactions coming in this expansion. I can feel it.

    Then again, with fewer "wow, that is an absurd effect" card reveals than we had last expac, maybe I'm wrong.

    I'm glad to see they're printing answers to the most overpowered deck in the meta, Miracle Rogue

    It also answers Echo cards.

    No Wild deck will play even/odd. Wild is about doing some crazy synergy thing and winning by turn 6.

    I like that card a lot. And I like that you may target your own minions if you wish to do so.

    Priest removal spell, huh. Like actual yknow, damage. Not a Shadow Word.

    They don't get too much access to those.

    Very interesting!

    Clearly Standard is now just "Can this deck copy/produce a fuckton of Voidlords and/or a Cube that swallowed Voidlords or Doomguards?"

    It's bad enough when every deck has a particular neutral as an auto-add, but when it's a class card....

    Then clearly what standard needs is:

    Omnivorous Cube
    Battlecry: Destroy a minion.
    Deathrattle: Summon 2 copies of it.

    Definitely a Fake Card


    And maybe a new version of Sideshow Spelleater.

    Well, what's clearly going to happen is they're going to nerf Carnivorous Cube rather than Voidlord or the Skull or any of the shit that makes the Cube actually broken.

    Can kill 4 power minions for less than 6 mana. That is kind of a big deal.

    I've enjoyed the majority of today's cards, yeah. They're not great, but they're not terrible either. They're nicely in the middle.

    I'm holding my pessimism in check because Un'Goro looked terrible before release and we still talk about how great that meta was.

    Yeah, that's pretty cool, hopefully there will be more secrets.

    With Cat Trick gone, I don't know why you would need to play 3 cards to figure out which Hunter secret is up.

    I don't understand Witch's Cauldren at all.

    Its like it was designed for a Hagatha deck but now everyone can be a Hagatha deck so why ever run it as actually shaman?

    Hunter looks great though.

    I don't understand this argument at all. Like, if anything random shaman spells are better in shaman than all the other classes because it can actually make use of totem/overload synergies.
