Windfury v. Windspeaker
09/01/2013 06:57 AMPosted by tangmcgameI can't make up my mind which is better. I feel like Windspeaker is the better choice, just because I feel like it does more to secure board position and is more card efficient. What's the consensus here, or is there a consensus? Does it depend on the deck?
I think it depends on the deck. I've flipped between the two depending on what else I have in my deck. Windspeaker is better in that the buff comes with another minion on your side of the board, but Windfury is easier to combo.
09/03/2013 07:10 PMPosted by tangmcgameYeah, I think so, too. No matter what turn it is, I'd rather draw the Windspeaker than Windfury. It's more board advantage at the cost of situational tempo plays. The spell Windfury sits in my hand oftentimes, whereas the other day I dropped a Windspeaker because the only other minion I had out was a SP totem and I needed to get some meat in play. So I gave windfury to my 0/2 totem. Which didn't matter until turn 10...when I double Bloodlusted. Can't believe my opponent let it sit there for 2 or 3 turns, but I bet he or she never does that again.
Ive actually done that a few times. Not sure if people just forget we can buff it or they forget we gave it windfury.
When you use a lot of overload cards in your deck, that low cost buff can really be a blessing (Err.. not a pun) and it's hard to justify playing a 4 cost 3/3.
If you're having trouble getting minions on the board chances are you won't be able to windspeaker anything great that is already able to attack and you've just used a large chunk of your mana pool for a mediocre minion.
