The ability in effect sees the minion casting a spell on behalf of the player. As a result, the spell is not considered to have been cast by the player for game purposes - for example, it will not trigger Mana Wyrm or an opponent's Troggzor the Earthinator - but the spell itself will function from the player's perspective: a Flamestrike will still target the opponent's board, and Astral Communion will still discard the player's hand.
The player does not control the casting of spells produced by this ability. Behaviours for targeting depend on the card involved, with some having fixed targets and others choosing targets randomly each time.
Cast spell is the spell equivalent to the summon ability, which summons a new minion on behalf of the player without requiring the player to pay the mana cost.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Two main variations on the cast spell ability currently exist. For extensive notes on the behaviour of each, see Yogg-Saron#Notes and Djinni of Zephyrs#Notes, respectively.

|Servant of Yogg-Saron||Rare||Minion||General||Mage||5||5||4||Battlecry: Cast a random spell that costs (5) or less (targets chosen randomly). Yogg-Saron always likes to complain about how he has too many servants and there are too many mouths to feed.|
|Djinni of Zephyrs||Epic||Minion||General||Any||5||4||6||After you cast a spell on another friendly minion, cast a copy of it on this one. If you want your wish granted, don't rub him the wrong way.|
|Yogg-Saron, Hope's End||Legendary||Minion||General||Any||10||7||5||Battlecry: Cast a random spell for each spell you've cast this game (targets chosen randomly). I spell your doom... Y-O-U-R D-O-O-M!|
