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?

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.

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.

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
