Just a small annoyance, in Timber Wolf's Arena section, Unleash the Hounds doesn't have a link while it does have one everywhere else on the same page.

You gotta love that irony of Freezing Trap being the "go-to" secret for aggressive Hunters when almost every single Face Hunter runs only Explosive Trap because it does 2 damage to face(also sometimes clears the board).

I think you can get Captured Jormungar, Desert Camel, Fierce Monkey, Huge Toad, Jeweled Scarab, King's Elekk, Lost Tallstrider, Mounted Raptor, Mukla's Champion, Pit Snake, Tomb Spider, Armored Warhorse, Core Rager, Jungle Moonkin, King of Beasts, Savage Combatant, Acidmaw, Dreadscale, Gahz'rilla and Malorne along with the beasts already listed in Webspinner's description. Also I'm wondering why a list of every possible card on Webspinner but not on other random spawning cards with a restriction like Piloted Shredder or Tomb Spider.

In the Feign Death's Constructed Play section, you say that Undertaker is a "strong card" to synergize with other Deathrattle cards in the deck. I'm sure this is no longer the case. Also there's a typo as you wrote "synergise".

Maybe it's just me but I think that Ball of Spiders could find its way in the new meta that is a lot more varied than before. Yes we still have Aggro, but also Fatigue Warrior, Mill Druid, that weird Priest that isn't Dragon but has too much removal to be real. I mean, those are REALLY slow decks so Ball of Spiders is less punished for being slow.

It wasn't bad just because the meta was too fast - Hunter was (and still is). Hunters can't really afford to slow down. Midrange Hunters don't run out of cards quickly enough for BoS to be a good addition, especially not with those stats. Face Hunters do run out of cards pretty quickly, but BoS is just too slow to be included.

I don't understand why you'd need to "run out of cards" to wanna play Ball of Spiders... It gives more flexibility, you don't have to make a super aggressive Hunter. You totally can! And the cards to do so are really good, but it's not necessary! I love experimenting, it throws off people and I find it funny!

Hunters have a proactive playstyle and therefore they will almost always have options as long as they have cards in hand. The beasts you can get aren't only good cards, such as Highmane, but laos awful cards such as Stonetusk Boar, Timber Wolf, Core Hound and so on. The value you will probably get will usually be low.

I guess we have to disagree about the possibilities... Just because everyone is doing it doesn't mean it is mandatory. There's a lot of really cool theorycraft decks that are so close to being really good, I believe in Hunter to be able to stalk his prey a little longer than 10 turns!

I'll side with you on this one as I personally like BoS. Depending on the meta I might throw a single copy in from time to time and when I have ran it it has helped more than it hurt. It's not OP in anyway but I do feel its value is a little underrated.

Ram wrangle any King Crushes lately? Great for battle. Terrible for farming. He eats all your livestock.

Gotta love that rng though. Many a concede when you roll that beast out.

Why is Cloaked Huntress missing from the list but the wolf grandma is in the list?

Guides for Karazhan cards are still being worked on. I believe that Kindly Grandmother was added between its reveal and Cloaked Huntress's reveal. It should be added within a few days.

Should I disenchant King crush?

He isn't really viable in this meta and there is no telling if he will be when the "New Year" rolls around. If you need the dust and don't plan on using him then I would say yes.

In the Arena section of Timber Wolf, Snipe, Dart Trap, Lock and Load, Call Pet, Cobra Shot and Starving Buzzard, you might want to take into account that they can't be drafted.

      Winter Veil begins next week on Hearthstone and a special Tavern Brawl will award three Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs.
      Next week's Tavern Brawl will be really similar to the Gift Exchange one back from 2015 and February 2017. There will be some differences though, as the Brawl will have a Kobold flavour and it will have a new name: Wacky Waxy Winter Veil's Brawl.
      As Winter Veil is a frosty season, the reward will obviously be three packs from Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion. It's not sure if the Winter Veil Wreath card back, which was associated with the Gift Exchange brawl during the previous years' Winter Veils, will be available this time to those who don't already have it.
      Blizzard Entertainment
      ‘Tis the season! In celebration of Winter’s Veil—and to give all you adventurers something to do that doesn’t involve taking candles—Greatfather Kobold has prepared a special distraction, er, Winter’s Veil tavern brawl packed with wacky, waxy gifts!
      These treats aren’t just on the game board! The reward for winning your first game of this Tavern Brawl is THREE festively frosty Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs! 
      Greatfather Kobold’s helpers have been busy decorating the Orgrimmar game board for the tavern brawl, but you can also experience the holiday in Stormwind while enjoying other play modes. And no matter how you play, don’t forget to show your opponent some holiday spirit with the return of the Happy Winter’s Veil greeting emote!
      The Rules
      Greatfather Kobold will drop off some tastefully wrapped, candle-bearing gifts on turn one—four on each side of the board, for a total of eight. If you unwrap a gift, you’ll receive a Legendary minion that costs three fewer mana to play! Greatfather Kobold will keep the celebration going by periodically parachuting in more presents. Don’t be greedy, though! You’ll only get a discounted Legendary minion from the gifts Greatfather Kobold left on your opponent’s side of the field.
      How will you build your deck to make the most of these potent presents?
      The Wacky Waxy Winter’s Veil brawl begins December 20 and lasts through December 24, so be sure to drop in and celebrate!
      A very Happy Winter’s Veil to you and yours! (source)
      For now, you can enjoy this week's Tavern Brawl, which is Valeera's Bag of Burgled Spells.

      Following the tradition started with Knights of the Frozen Throne, Kobolds & Catacombs gets its first digital comic.
      "Up Comes Down" is a lighthearted story about two Kobolds, who decide to go off on their own despite the orders of King Togwaggle. In their short adventure in the Catacombs, they encounter many obstacles, but by cooperating they manage to emerge victorious.

      You can read and/or download the comic here.

      Can you find the best move in a deck full of cards from the new set?
      The first episode of WTM since the release of Kobolds & Catacombs, Aleco plays a "Big Spells Dragon Priest" deck full of brand of new cards.
      Kobolds and Catacombs has hit the competitive ladder with a bang, bringing it with it an unprecedented number of impactful new cards. Some cards have come as huge surprises (Spiteful Summoner, Corridor Creeper), others have been performing about as well as expected (Duskbreaker, Twilight Acolyte), and all four of these powerful new KnC cards are featured in the deck I've had the most success with over the past four days - Sattelite's Big Spells Dragon Priest. The deck has a ton of play to it and never fails to produce difficult decisions and interesting situations, such as the one I found myself in here:
      "What's the Move?" is now seeking viewer submissions for the future episodes. If you ever find yourself in a sticky situation on the ladder, please feel free to submit your plays, questions, and feedback to Aleco on twitter.
