Summon a random Beast Companion.

You could summon Misha, Leokk, or Huffer! Huffer is more trouble than he's worth.

See this card on Hearthpwn

Animal Companion is a basic hunter spell card. It randomly summons one of three possible minions: Huffer, Leokk or Misha.

How to get[edit]

Animal Companion x 2 are a reward for raising a hunter to level 2.

Golden Animal Companion is a reward for raising a hunter to levels 45 and 46.

Animal Companion is soulbound and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Notes[edit]

  • Unlike Totemic Call, the companions are not mutually exclusive; it is possible for a player to play Animal Companion twice in a row, and summon two copies of the same companion.
  • As with all summoning spells, the minions summoned by this card are always placed at the far right of the battlefield. The player cannot control their placement, although they can choose to play other minions after playing this spell, allowing for some degree of control over positioning.

Strategy[edit]

Animal Companion randomly summons Misha, Leokk or Huffer. Although you cannot choose which minion will be summoned, all three minions are very cost effective, offering the kind of effects normally expected from 4 mana minions.

This spell can be used to obtain early board presence and apply pressure to your opponent, forcing him to deal with these early threats. Since these minions are all beasts, they also synergize with the various hunter cards that benefit from having beasts in your deck, such as Scavenging Hyena and Starving Buzzard.

Huffer[edit]

Huffer is a 4/2 beast with Charge.

Huffer is a well-rounded card for early game play or later rounds, but with low health it may not last very long. Use it as a pig-shaped missile.

Leokk[edit]

Leokk is a 2/4 beast with the card text, "Other friendly minions have +1 Attack."

Leokk can be very useful due mostly to his buff. Note that he buffs all friendly minions, and not just other beasts. Pairing Leokk with Snake Trap makes the latter a bigger threat. A good draw if you already have other minions on the board.

Misha[edit]

Misha is a 4/4 beast with Taunt.

The low cost and high stats combined with Taunt make this a well rounded card for early game play. Taunt will buy you time to set-up supporting cards while still allowing good attack power for board control.

Lore[edit]

Misha, Leokk and Huffer are all known companions of Rexxar.

Trivia[edit]

If you play Animal Companion against the Kel'Thuzad boss in the Curse of Naxxramas adventure, Mr. Bigglesworth will be summoned instead.
