More Insights & Reading
I highly recommend reading these three threads for more information and context on summoning odds:
If you’ve read them a million times before, you may consider reading them again before deciding on your budget for summoning. A little time spent deciding on how much money you want to risk on summoning goes a long way to avoiding disappointment, frustration, and regret later.

Feel free to discuss your team and roster here, and ask for advice from other Forum members.
If you’d like more extensive advice on sorting out your particular roster, I recommend creating a new thread in Gameplay Help & Tactics, and posting screenshots of your hero roster, along with your questions.
the mad hatter "Abilitly" is 100%…?
So…why is it a passive/ability ???
Just add it to the long list:
250% hit-3, bypass-all-buffs damage timed nicely for AFTER the minion removal which will translate to
0-90% health recovery.
And 0-27% mana generation.
Both likely averaging somewhere close to the middle.
And a a fairly meaningless family bonus for a hero that has a mountain of versatility and power at… very… fast… speed
I am very surprised this hero isn’t dark!
Now later on, when they attach that Balance FAQ to the update, which reads:
You all just keep glossing right on past it
All though… this hero may not be the greatest defender, don’t take minions against him.
And…when it comes to nerfing offense
no one cares… only defenders get thwacked,
So instead… throw him on your attack teams and make those minion summoners ahem… the new meta… see how this works?
They have been pumping out minion summoners. They pump out different kinds of anti minion heroes recently. That means, there is something new in the corner, at least this is how it works in other businesses. The last squeeze that may be ongoing for many months.
