Dire Wolf Alpha — Neutral Card

Table of Contents

Dire Wolf Alpha is a neutral minion. This card can be obtained from expert packs. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Dire Wolf Alpha is one of the most effective buff cards in the game as it can add a significant amount of pressure to an established board. It also offers benefits from its Beast class in decks seeking to take advantage of those synergies.

2. Constructed Play

Dire Wolf Alpha works well in Hunter decks, as it will benefit from any Beast synergy as well as boost the potential of your Unleash the Hounds. Dire Wolf Alpha can also present better pressure than regular 2-drops in any extremely aggressive minion-based deck.

3. Arena

Dire Wolf Alpha has low stats for its Mana cost, which is always the first consideration when drafting a minion in Arena. However, the buff effect it offers can be potentially strong. If your deck contains numerous 2/3 minions, then Dire Wolf Alpha goes up in value, as it can come down early and create very favourable trades for these minions into opposing 2/3 minions.
