Veranus, is an elite proto-dragon and broodmother of the proto-drakes located in The Storm Peaks in World of Warcraft lore. In upcoming Hearthstone expansion Descent of Dragons, Veranus bolsters the Hunter class’ repertoire as a Legendary Dragon minion with a powerful Battlecry.
- Class: Hunter
- Card type: Minion
- Rarity: Legendary
- Mana cost: 6
- Attack: 7 Health: 6
- Card text: Battlecry: Change the Health of all enemy minions to 1.
- Tribe: Dragon
Although Veranus boasts a powerful Battlecry, the card will have to work in combination with other cards, as you don’t want to waste a 6-mana 7/6 on the board without taking advantage of its effect. The difficulty could lie in finding the proper support cards to combo with (Unleash the Hounds plus this would clock in at 9-mana); having Desert Spear already active is the best tempo utilization that stands out at first glance.
Is Veranus too slow for the Descent of Dragons meta or will it end up being a powerful midrange board clear? Sound off in the comments.
