  • The Deathrattle granted by this spell summons a fresh copy of the original minion following its death. Any damage, enchantments or silences affecting it before its destruction will not carry over to the new copy.
  • 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.


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 works by granting Deathrattle, so the minion you play it on is still viable for silencing.

Patch changes[edit]

  • Curse of Naxxramas logo.png Patch (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."
