|Ability||Opening Gambit: Both players draw a card.|
Introduction[edit | edit source]
Blaze Hound is a Neutral Common Minion. It costs three cores has four attack and three health. Blaze Hound is one of the many new draw minions added in v. 0.61.0 and provides premium stats in exchange for equivalent benefit between both players. Unlike Void Hunter the card draw is immediate, controllable and Blaze Hound also has one more health, however Void Hunter only draws you a card.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Blaze Hound is one of several draw options in Duelyst. Its statline and somewhat risky effect hint at this card being more suited for Aggro lists. Aggro players occasionally rely on this card to produce a decent body and to refill their hand, whatever the cost. However, the obvious downside is that this card gives the enemy cards as well. Realizing this downside, some players use Blaze Hound in Starhorn. In conjunction with Starhorn's BBS, players can mill cards from the opponent. Further, it can trigger draw effects (Vindicator, Visionar, High Hand, etc.). In these two places Blaze Hound has found a home. Elsewhere, it is not really seen.
