Three hellions get the job done much faster, build faster, are less fragile, can be reactor'd, and two shot multiple probes when upgraded. Whether or not they can jump up walls is a moot point since medivacs are always empty during an assault and could be used to drop off hellions. On top of all that, you can have them out and burning stuff up by the 4 minute mark. Oh, and you don't need the speed upgrade for them. Finally, most players who mineral dump go for marines. If they are building reapers, they have fewer structures to dump, which makes hellions better again. So, if anything, this patch makes hellions the new reapers.
