Hearthstone was originally a pen and paper prototype developed by a two-man team within Blizzard's Team 5, as the rest of the group had been moved to different projects. Development continued in tabletop iteration until the pair reached the version you see today.
Due to the way health integers are recorded for minions, the maximum minion health is 2,147,483,647. Going above this will bring the minion to 1 health or destroy it. Likewise, doing 2,147,483,650 damage to a 1 HP minion will bring its health to the maximum.
The Raid Leader's shouts of "Handle It!" and "Hit it very hard!" are references from the 2007 Onyxia wipe video. Blizzard has also added an achievement in WoW for killing Onyxia in under five minutes that references this, called "More DOTS"
