Windfury Harpy + Charge = turn 9 worgen combo

Posts: 6
Due to the changes to the Charge spell, you can now do a 9 mana -> 12 damage combo with windfury harpy + charge (+2 attack).

Been experimenting with this, and it works quite well as the secondary combo to warsong-worgen-cruel taskmaster/inner rage. It does as much burst damage as grommash + cruel taskmaster/inner rage, although you can't combo taskmasters with them unless you kept your coin (inner rage still works fine. Charged Harpy + x2 inner rage = 20 damage).

Wondering if anyone else tried out this after the charge change.

Yes, it was better before the charge change.

Charge is weak. It should be +4 damage on this turn only to really make it effective.

But that does give the possibility of Worgen OTK.

Charge needs to give HP instead of ATK to be efficient as a card.

Atm charge is only efficient as a conditional damage dealer to the enemy champion, any minion trade facilitated by charge is by default unfavorable.

We already have worgen OTK, but it would make it easier.

EDIT: What about removing the +2 attack and having it return the minion to your hand at the end of the turn? That would give it versatility as removal and to heal valuable minions- it would mean that the card was no longer a guaranteed 2-for-1 for your opponent and would instead allow you to be far more efficient.
