A powerful source of removal and beast-generating. Although initially overpriced, the Twinspell effect guarantees your Wyverns will find value over time. Against minion-light decks, you can use it as two 5/5 Beasts over two turns, ignoring the Rush ability. The bodies are large enough to demand an answer, especially if your opponent is already under pressure. Since the card creates a Beast, it has synergy with Tundra Rhino, Dire Frenzy, and Timber Wolf.
Unleash the Beast synergizes well with Zul'jin. In addition to summoning at least one 5/5 Rush Wyvern, the Twinspell effect will add an additional copy of the Spell to your hand for future use. A single copy of Unleash the Beast will give you two 5/5 Wyverns when Zul'jin triggers if you activate the Twinspell-created copy before summoning Zul'jin, giving you plenty of value in a single card.
Unleash the Beast is also generally good in any deck that needs to run only a specific set of minions. In Wild, for example, this could be run in a deck that uses Barnes, Y'Shaarj, Rage Unbound or Kathrena Winterwisp; because Unleash the Beast is a spell, those minions' effects won't be hampered.
Unleash the Beast was an artifact trait available to Beast Mastery hunters wielding the artifact weapon Titanstrike during World of Warcraft: Legion. It slightly increased the damage bonus granted by Bestial Wrath. As with all artifact traits, Unleash the Beast was removed when artifact weapons became deprecated in Battle for Azeroth.
