Deal 2 damage to an undamaged minion.

It's funny how often yelling "Look over there!" gets your opponent to turn around.

Backstab is a basic rogue spell card.

Contents

[edit] How to get

Backstab x 2 are automatically included in all players' collections.

Golden Backstab is a reward for raising a rogue to levels 36 and 38.

Backstab is soulbound and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

[edit] Strategy

Backstab is an excellent card, providing a means to remove a 2 or 1 Health minion at no mana cost, deal additional damage to a larger minion at full Health and also set up a Combo.

While on its own it provides no card advantage or tempo, being merely direct removal, its zero mana cost can be used to allow a Combo that will either provide you with extra minions (Defias Ringleader) or remove other minions (SI:7 Agent).

[edit] Trivia

The card art depicts the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game and World of Warcraft Miniatures Game character Timmo Shadestep.
