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.

      Blizzard released the 17.2.2 client patch for Hearthstone to fix a bug related to the closed shop that occurred due to a missing runtime dependency.
      (Source)
      We’re currently in the process of deploying a 17.2.2 client patch that will address the following items:
      Fixed a bug that would cause a crash on mobile when clicking the eye to see who is spectating. Fixed a few various issues that would lock the game state when playing certain cards from hand. Fixed a bug where some players in Europe were only given the option of Warrior as their free deck after graduating the new player ranks. Fixed a bug where the shop would be closed when launching Hearthstone due to a missing runtime dependency. If the shop is still closed after updating to 17.2.2, try swapping to another region on the launcher and swapping back before opening Hearthstone again.
      The incorrect Mana display bug for mobile users will be fixed in the next update.

      Any updates on when the incorrect mana bug for mobile players will be fixed?
      Hey! This will be fixed in our next major update.

      A new blog post has been released, detailing a dozen card changes coming to the game on Monday 18th of May.
      Shaman is getting some much needed help, since three of its cards will be buffed - although it is debatable if these buffs will be enough to move the class out of the bottom.
      As far as the nerfs are concerned, two more Demon Hunter cards (who would have thought?) are getting toned down. Scavenger's Ingenuity, Shadowjeweler Hanar, Blackjack Stunner, Imprisoned Scrap Imp, Bloodboil Brute, Bloodsworn Mercenary are also getting tweaked.
      Nerfed cards will be eligible for a refund until June 1st.
      The patch also brings a bug fix for Ethereal Conjurer, which was causing the game to lock by not offering any Discover options. 
      Don't forget you can grab a free Nemsy until May 19, as part of Patch 17.2.0.
      Blizzard Entertainment
