Notes[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Provided you have several minions when casting this spell, this is a great way to fill your hand with Beasts, so you have enough cards for late-game.

Arguably a better card than Ball of Spiders, if there are enough minions. An excellent combination with Unleash the Hounds.
