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.
