Strategy[edit | edit source]
Piranha Launcher is a card that has seen practically no play due to its high cost, low-impact effect, and lack of synergy with other Hunter cards and themes. In comparison, Assassin's Blade and Charged Hammer are two cards which are objectively better either in stats or mana cost, neither of which are playable in most cases. Hunter is a class commonly associated with cards with strong board presence and/or immediate impact; Piranha Launcher achieves neither of these things, generally dealing a mere 3 damage per turn.
Piranha Launcher has some synergy with Tundra Rhino and Starving Buzzard, summoning a 1/1 Beast for what is effectively 0 mana on that turn. However, the fact that they all share the same Mana cost and have poor stat distribution leads to awkward mana curves and a series of low-impact turns.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In lore, this weapon was deviced by goblin inventor Hobart Grapplehammer.
