Dire Wolf Alpha is a useful buffing minion that improves any adjacent minion. As a Beast, it has natural synergy with numerous hunter decks. Its relatively cheap cost makes it an ideal minion for Zoo or token decks who can utilize the buff by trading weak minions in a chain to take down much stronger minions.
