If you played Wild format over the last few days, you’ve probably faced the combo a few times… okay, more like 90% of the time. The newly released Hysteria has made one of the older, previously useless cards quite broken.
And if you haven’t seen it yet, the combo goes like this. You first drop Wretched Tiller, give it Immune with Deathspeaker, then force it to attack random minions until it dies with Hysteria… but instead of dying, it keeps plowing your opponent’s face until everything else dies. Of course – having enough minions on the board to kill your opponent made everything easier, but you didn’t even have to rely on that. Priest could just turn Tiller into a 0 attack minion with Shrinkmeister, while Warlock could play a second Deathspeaker to give another minion (such as the first Deathspeaker) immune and thus make Tiller attack it forever (or well, at least 30 times, as that appears to be Hysteria’s limit).
If you hated the combo right from the start – good news, Game Designer Dean “Iksar” Ayala just announced on Twitter that they’ll be changing the interaction next week. And if you love the combo (you degenerate!), then you still have a few more days to enjoy it.
Looking to get a change out for the Tiller/Hysteria interaction sometime next week. Hope this farmer enjoys his time in the sun while it lasts! pic.twitter.com/usVDb9RfQ7
