Ok, after reading this entire post i have to say that anyone who thinks the UtH is OP is just not playing there decks to the best of there ability .
I play all the decks and i can honestly say , that each deck is as good as the person playing it , the cards dont matter, ive been beaten 32 times in one day on my hunter deck, and won 15 -20 time on another day , despite what some people want you to think its not the cards in of them selves that make a deck op, its how you play them , you can take two identical decks and one person will see it as op and the other will think it sucks , its all in play-style , same as it had been in all card game from yugiho to pokemon and even MTG .
Again i play all the decks , and they all have cards and card combos that can break the match and are easily considered op. its not just one card that makes or breaks a match , if you dont know to combo your cards with the right cards to get maximum effect then you are hurting yourself , and if you dont know how to play against it , dont come here complaining just drop a taunt and you will find most of your problems will be was smaller than you think .
I saw someone further up in this post say something about secrets needing to be able to be affected by silence , why in the world should they be ? all classes have secrets , most are better than hunter secrets any ways. and for people who really wanna fuss about the op nature of UtH , its a 2 mana cost card that summons a 1/1 hound that has charge for each enemy minion in play , the lowest health taunt i can think of right now is 0/2 mage summons , it cost 1 mana i think it summons 2 minion with taunt , so there is that for mages , at the lowest cost i can think of , you have effectively stopped the UtH card , all you have to do is drop a tuant , and 2-4 of the hounds ( if it even summons that many )are down . but say the hunter combos with one of the buff cards ..well drop a low cost taunt and then either aoe or target the buff card , its simple and yet people refuse to do it , they would rather be on here complaining about a single Card .....which incidentally isnt the most op in the game.IMO the most op card in the game is probably the Deathwing , but the is just IMO, and the worst card combo is the priest double health then match attack to health combo ...kills me every time, and has gotten me to the point where i will just concede a match to a priest if i come against one in either casual or ranked play, if played correctly a 2 mana minion the on the next turn a total of 3 mana to double the health and then match attack to health , can give a pretty powerful minion.
And no before anyone accuses me of only playing hunter because its a easy deck , i play wow also and i have 4 hunters , 2 90s a 70 and a 40 all hunters all different specs , and both allie and horde. i been playing wow since bc , i love hunter class, love the way it plays, love the pets and the thrill of the stalk to get them , so when i started this game i choose what i was at least some what familiar with , i did not choose it because of UtH or any other card.
