I love the art of release the dogs, specifically the fact that it implies each of those dogs are the same power and toughness. Yes the little cutie in front is just as dangerous as the big boys behind him.
The problem with defining this format by what is "fun" is that everyone seems to define fun as what they don't lose to. If you keep losing to easily answered cards, that means you should improve your deck. If you don't want to improve your deck, then you should come to peace with the idea that you are going to lose because you chose to not interact with better strategies.
