Notes[edit]

  • Note that this spell does not actually 'return' the minion to play - it simply summons a copy of the minion following its death.
  • When a minion is 'returned to play' by Ancestral Spirit, it will be restored to its original state as shown on its card. Any damage, enchantments or silences affecting it before its destruction will be lost.
  • Control of the the minion is not affected by Ancestral Spirit - the spell does not grant control of the resurrected minion to the casting player.

Strategy[edit]

Ancestral Spirit is a very versatile shaman card. It can be used on a minion with Deathrattle, such as Cairne Bloodhoof, to both make use of the Deathrattle and bring the minion back, so that the Deathrattle might be used again. It can also be used for keeping important Taunt minions in play to keep protections up, or to keep your heavy hitters from going down too easily, such as Dust Devil.

Keep in mind that Ancestral Spirit acts like a Deathrattle, so the minion you play it on is still viable for silencing.

Patch changes[edit]

  • Patch 1.1.0.6024 (2014-07-22): Now reads "Give a minion "Deathrattle: Resummon this minion."" instead of "Choose a minion. When that minion is destroyed, return it to the battlefield."
