Title. If you have Divine Shield, you can’t have poison. Divine Shield should cleanse the poison off the minion. It’s a reeeaaally strong combination of mechanics.
I’ve also heard the suggestion of changing “poison” to “venom” and making it so that your minion can only poison something once per combat.
Either way, please, just do something about this combo. I know people are going to say “but it’s necessary to counter high stat minions”. Sure, but when the poison minions are themselves high stats, the problem compounds.
Leroy is a better example of how to deal with this issue. Sure, it can kill any minion, but it has to die to do it. It can only do that once. (Unless it’s with Arthas who can rebirth it.)
It’s extremely anti-fun. And before you go “oh but you can do mechs/beasts”, I know. But you have to high roll either of those to go against the easy to get murloc poison board.
I also know it takes a specific combination in the lobby to make DS/Poison happen. The 6 star with poison that can also get DS in combat, the Divine Shield hero power, and amalgamation annoyatron/toxifin. There’s also Al’akir hero power and the 2/1 Deathrattle Divine Shield minion that can put up two Divine Shields while golden or with Baron. If you have golden and Baron, that’s 4 divine shields.
There are a lot of ways to make the combination happen and it’s irritating and exhausting every single time it does. Please, just break this combo.
