Unleash the Hounds draws X cards, where X is the number of creatures you control, if Starving Buzzard is in play.
Unleash the Hounds gets a +1 damage bonus IF you DRAW into Timber Wolf.
+2 if you draw into two timber wolves.
+Another X to both of those if you draw a second Unleash the Hounds
+Another X cards drawn if you draw into another Unleash the Hounds with your Unleash the Hounds.
Starving Buzzard synergizes well with every other Beast card -- including Animal Companion -- which is extremely good, in my experience.
Playing Staving Buzzard + Animal Companion is already card advantage without playing other cards, because Animal Companion is worth more than 1 card in most cases.
Starving Buzzard also draws 3 cards with Snake Trap -- if they attack any of your creatures.
For instance, Misha -- or even Starving Buzzard itself.
They are beasts, and can attack on your turn after the opponent's turn, without him being able to profitably destroy them unless he plans to spring that particular trap.
The hunter's 2 damage attacks stack up, fast, unless you're playing priest.
Nobody even talks about Gladiator's Longbow, which lets the hunter deal 7 damage in one turn, and 12 damage over two turns -- or destroy two minions, without taking any damage.
Then, we have the "random" kill spell.
It's not random.
It hits the only creature you have on the battlefield -- the only creature he left alive, because you were careful not to have three or more creatures in play, and he killed two of them -- leaving only the strongest, which is 'randomly' targeted by his Deadly Shot.
You need to have three creatures in play for Multishot to actually be random.
You don't have three creatures in play versus a hunter, so it hits both your creatures.
In fact, the hunter has an incredible removal suite:
Deadly shot -- Outright destroys your non-paladin non-shaman's only surviving minion after your attacks
Multishot -- 3+ damage to your opponent's only two creatures (It's a spell, remember?)
Kill Command -- 5 damage for 3 mana
Hunter's Mark -- Reduce a minion's health to 1.
Snipe -- Secret that deals 4+ damage to a summoned creature
Misdirection -- Secret that 2 for 1s your opponent
Explosive trap -- Secret that wipes the board and forces your opponent to play a useless creature the first turn after you play it, because it can be Snipe, and that forces your opponent to kill any Buzzard with spells, because it can be a "Draw 3 cards and put three 1/1 snakes into play" trap.
Then add in Eaglehorn Bow with those secrets, and he can deal 5 damage each turn to your face, or 7 if he played explosive trap, while clearing your board.
Impressive destruction spells.
The best class creatures in the game.
The best card draw in the game; draw cards when you PLAY creatures that are good even before the card draw.
Scavenging Hyena is like Flesheating Ghoul on steroids.
Unleash the hounds makes it incredibly big, before it attacks.
Savannah Highmane is incredibly potent.
And guess what? The two hyeneas summoned are, of course, beasts -- allowing you to abuse Starving Buzzard before putting him on a suicide attack.
And if you put him on a suicide attack with Tundra Rhino in play, the Hyenas get Charge.
That's 9 damage in one turn from a 6 cost creature, plus potential card draw.
The entire class is combotastic.
The Tracking spell would be banned in Magic the Gathering.
By the gods.
I am only interested in playing:
2: Warlock (I wish it wasn't an orc... *Sigh*)
3: Paladin (I wish he was under 40)
4: Priest (I'll probably main him when they balance his spells better.)
And looking at the hunter's spells makes me envious, as a mage.
Does the Hunter have ANY BAD SPELLS, like Mirror Image, Ice Lance, Ice Block, Ice Barrier, Arcane Missiles and Arcane Explosion -- or BAD CREATURES, like Mana Wyrm, Ethereal Arcanist, Sorcerer's Apprentice and Kirin Tor Mage -- all of which dies to absolutely any hunter spell unless, and ironically -- half of them rendered useless because of Flare, a hunter spell??
Should the Hunter class be locked for players that have over 100 wins, or something..?
