Patch Updates affecting Lava Hound

patch release date description
Jun 21, 2016 - 7 months ago The Lava Hound itself isn't scary enough right now - compared to the pups - and can sometimes be ignored. This change is relatively small, but it brings the damage of the hound and the pups in line with one another.
May 18, 2016 - 8 months ago As an 7 Elixir Legendary Card we don't think the Lava Hound is impressive enough yet. In particular, his "second phase" when the Pups pop out could do with a boost to make him a more enticing choice.
May 3, 2016 - 8 months ago Introduced to the game.
