Discard Mechanic buffed (in one very specific case)?

    So I just wanted to see if the Duels cardpool was already updated (it is) and naturally ended up building a Discolock deck now that Lakkari Sacrifice is part of the starting pool (which is a lot of fun so far, Imps go wheeeee).

    Now, as you probably know Lakkari Felhound was recently buffed to discard the two loweset-cost cards, which is really helpful if you want to discard [Hearthstone Card (Clutchmother Xavas) Not Found] among other things.

    What I did not know was that they apparently buffed the interaction between these two specific cards even further. When I play Felhound with just about 5 different cards in hand (one of them Clutchmother), he proceeded to discard Xavas, who did her discard thing and came back....BEFORE the 2nd card was discarded....after which she was discarded AGAIN for another buff.

    I don't know if this would apply to any other cards (since this is the only multi-discard with specific targets), but it's certainly a welcome change.

    I'm gonna try and test it with Cataclysm to see what happens there, but I doubt it lets me infinitely discard Xavas.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    That is interesting. It could be because we've never had something that specifically discards certain cards twice before so these kinda interactions have never really been seen. Perhaps all discards are actually calculated separated from one another, but I'd imagine that to be the case. Never really tried this interaction before myself.

    I assume this would have to be the case, probably because of the condition it has to calculate in between discards, which is the next available target and since Xavas effect says "whenever" she hops in that window and returns only to be discarded againn since she was the only 2-drop in hand.

    Should probably also work on Jeklik (in the sense that if discarded she will double up before the second discard happens, meaning that technically with only Felhound and Jeklik in hand you can creat 4 copies of her at once, which is neat)
