For instance, two copies of Unleash the Hounds will summon 6 Hounds in total if your opponent has 3 minions.

Notes

Counters

The main counters to Unleash the Hounds are Taunt minions and AoE damage. The former can be used to force the Hounds to trade A trade is the loss of one or more cards in exchange for the elimination of one or more enemy cards. Most often, trading refers to minions dying in combat, but the term may be into a single powerful target, and this is usually the only option available to prevent the Hounds from overrunning the player entirely. Making sure to have a Taunt on the board as the game approaches the mid- to late-game is the main defence against this assault.

The second counter is the more efficient and cheaper. Think of cards like Fan of Knives and Twilight Flamecaller. The optimum counter is Counterspell, which can also prevent other powerful Hunter spell cards like Call of the Wild.

Another way of countering Unleash the Hounds is to limit the number of friendly minions on the board. Every friendly minion is one additional Hound for the opponent. Limiting minion numbers to two or three can prevent the hunter from making good use of the card.

Any combo cards set-up in advance, such as a lone Timber Wolf Timber Wolf Set: Basic Type: Minion Subtype: Beast Class: Hunter Cost: 1 Attack: 1 Health: 1 Tags: Beast-related, Ongoing effect Your other Beasts have +1 Attack.Other beasts totally dig hanging out with timber wolves.See this hearthstone , should of course be removed immediately, as these can allow the combo to build to even greater proportions.

Trivia

The card was changed into a four mana card that summoned one 1/1 hound with charge for each enemy minion. This version was considered underpowered and was rarely played.
After the mana cost was reduced to 2, the card was considered to be overpowered once again, and was held responsible by Blizzard for the dominance of hunters across many levels of play, as explained in an official blog. To counter this, with Patch 1.0.0.5314 the card`s mana cost was increased from 2 to 3, slightly reducing its effectiveness as a combo card, and preventing it from being played so early in the match.
  • This card`s art depicts a Durnholde Tracking Hound.
  • This card (and its flavor text) may be a reference to the same quote used by Mr. Burns in the TV series The Simpsons, in a scene in which he sends his hounds to chase Homer Simpson.
