Warsong Commander, Raider and Gorehowl

Posts: 60
So this just happened to me. Guy played a Warsong Commander, had a Gorehowl with 6 Attack left, summoned a Bloodsail Raider, which got charge (since it was a 2/3) and then afterwards received the +6 attack so I had a 8/3 with charge facing me. Then to top it off he used Youthful Brewmaster to retrieve it etc.

Sure it's a small chance to make that exact combo, but do you think a Bloodsail Raider should get the charge from the Warsong commander? Quite silly in my book that the charge goes before the buff of the weapon.

That's technically correct for now, and probably intended, too, since the Warsong nerf happened a long time ago and Blizz hasn't changed it ever since. As for whether it's balanced... I believe it is, because you need 3 cards to pull it off, and it can't be done in one turn. For a 3-card combo that happens over 2 turns it's not that high a damage, and it's not like Warsong is currently usable or practical. It works in these niche situations, but that's about it.

I had a warsong commander and flesheating ghoul on the field and he got charge, then after i killed like 4 of his minions i had a 7/3 charge. I assume warsong commander just works off the initial values and counts the others as buffs?

The best kind of correct.

My guess is that the charge mechanic takes priority over trigger and thus you get nasty combos like that. I'll have to remember this.

They can nerf my Bloodsails after they nerf Unleash the Hounds.
