[edit] Strategy

  • Captain Greenskin's Battlecry is useful in any weapon deck, and strongly encourages waiting to play him until you have a suitable weapon equipped. Given his otherwise underwhelming stats, Greenskin is likely a poor choice for decks which do not feature weapons.
  • This card is the only way a rogue can increase the durability of their weapons, with the exception of using Lorewalker Cho on spells like Upgrade!.
