General Comments

The Beast offers extremely high stat value for its Mana cost, but also comes with a potentially devastating drawback. The potential swing of having this card targetted by a Big Game Hunter is enough to put most players off using this card in serious decks.


Constructed Play

The Beast is almost never seen in Constructed due to how common Big Game Hunter is. Having The Beast hit by a Big Game Hunter will almost always be game losing.



The Beast can be reasonably effective in Arena since premium removal, and in particular Big Game Hunter, is less common in the format. It can still be a situational play however, as you will be hesitant to play into an already established board from your opponent.
