3 mana 2/2 with an effect that is arguably better then battle cry, draw a card?  In any other class but hunter, this would be insane, in hunter, the stats might actually hinder it.  If a controlish hunter sees play, definitely a 2 of.  Face hunter probably won't run this, might see inclusion in the more aggresive mid range variations, and probably see inclusion in the slower mid range variations.

A typical 3-cost had 3 more stat points plus a tribal tag. Drawing is worth about 2 stat points, so they valued creating a random card in your deck to 1 stat point, or about 0.5 mana. I'm unsure about this; it certainly helps you curve out and adapt, but isn't the typical hunter plan to, well, not have to do that?

I get "Hunter card that'd be great in any other class than Hunter" vibes from this one...

Only problem with this is, Rexxar already has a ton of good 3-Cost cards. If it costed 2 or 4 (and were a 1/1 or a 3/3), it would be an auto include almost every time.

However, it's still a great drop, specially for the control hunter they seem to be pushing, as this provides it with a sort of card draw, very needed for the archetype to work. And as you can discover it, you can react to your opponent's strategy with this, wich makes it better yet.

Seems like I'm trying control hunter again this expansion.

with KFT I feel like Hunter is stepping into the same realm midrange Shaman was in a couple years ago - just with expanded and far more entertaining mechanics. Time to pick-up Rexxar.

I like this one. It adds a level of flexibility that Hunter has also seemed to lack.

Could be that they are pushing Hunter to that exact style of deck for this expansion. At least seems like it with the cards so far.

      Ike's surprising Freeze Mage deck played a huge role in his perfect tournament run.
      Hot off of a top 8 finish at the HCT Americas Summer Championships, Mark "Ike" Eichner blew through the competition at DreamHack Denver to finish the tournament with a perfect 13-0 record. He capped off the tournament by defeating DrJikininki, the DreamHack Atlanta 2017 champion, 3-2 in the finals. An incredibly impressive accomplishment for his first ever DreamHack, Ike will be taking home $7500 and 15 HCT points for his victory.
      Ike's powerful tournament lineup featured the three unquestioned kings of the current tournament meta, Highlander Priest, Jade Druid, and Tempo Rogue. However, his unique Freeze Mage deck was the all-star of the tournament. Ike called the deck his top performer on Twitter and noted that it received the most bans in the top 16.
      You can check out his deck lists for the tournament (including his Freeze Mage list) here on Twitter.

      In episode number four of "What's the Move?" a fun OTK deck finds a creative way to handle a threat.
      I've been having way too much fun with a Stonetusk Boar OTK (One Turn Kill) deck on the ladder these past few days. It's been performing surprisingly well against both of the two most popular decks in the current metagame, Highlander Priest and Tempo Rogue, but the real reason to play it is because of how much variety it has to offer from game to game. It's incredibly difficult to pilot and never fails to create interesting situations - just like the one we'll be discussing today!
      Once again, I took some of the feedback from the previous episode to heart and did my best to incorporate it into this one. As this series is still young and in the process of honing on it's ideal set of parameters (such as the length of the video, the amount of depth it should go into, and the kinds of situations it analyzes), please feel free to let us know in the comment section how this episode compares its predecessors.

      The Ukrainian player is now part of G2.
      Lifecoach's spot had been empty for a while and someone had to fill in the gap, in order for the Fantastic Four of the Hearthstone division of G2 Esports to be remade. This person turned out to be Neirea, formerly of Team Liquid, who will join RDU, Thijs and Lothar. In fact, Neirea is already competing with his new team in the second week of the Trinity Series.
      Eugene "Neira" Shumilin has consistently ranked high in various major competitions since 2014. His breakout performance happened this year with team Ukraine placing 2nd in the Hearthstone Global Games and Neirea qualifying for the World Championship during the Spring Championship.
      We wish him the very best of luck!

      Shadowreaper Anduin can machinegun his enemies down at a proper speed.
      Patch 9.2, which went live yesterday, broke poor Shadowreaper Anduin, causing a huge delay when refreshing his Hero Power. This bug was quickly fixed today with a hotfix that can be donwloaded to your Hearthstone client:
      mdonais
      We are currently deploying a Hotfix to fix the speed of Shadowreaper Anduin's hero power.
      It slowed down in the patch yesterday. I don't know exactly why since I am not one of the engineers that fixed it but it sounds like it is a side effects of the unity upgrade we did. We have to rebuild a some things when we do a unity upgrade.
      Thanks!
      Mike. (source)
