Hearthstone: Unleash the Hounds Changes
Hello everybody, Geek Generation here. I apologize for the lull in posting.
This is probably not news by now. Unleash the Hounds was nerfed, with its casting cost increased from 2 mana to 3 mana. I would say the card had it coming. It was so powerful when it was 2 mana and the amount of crazy things you could do is insane. The card was superb as an aggro stomper.
This means 2 things for Unleash the Hounds. Two card combos with the card goes off a turn slower, giving the aggressive opponent a better chance to set up Defender of Argus. It also means for the same amount of mana previously, it can do less stuff. Previously 5 mana was enough to cast a punishing Scavenging Buzzard, Unleash the Hounds and Timber Wolf. Obtaining and keeping the Coin card becomes so much more important for Unleash the Hounds to combo off.
Whether this would result in Stonetusk Boar being played more to fuel the unleashing of hounds remains to be seen.
Geek Generation out.
