Strategy[edit | edit source]

This is a weak card. When the Battlecry condition is not met, the Cryomancer's stats are insufficient for its Mana cost; you need a way to ensure a Frozen opponent when playing this, which means that you'll need to include several cards with a Freeze effect. Most of those cards are spells, which means that the win condition of such a deck will automatically change from minion-based to spell-based - and in a deck with a spell-based win condition, even a 5 mana 7/7 becomes relatively useless.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Summon
You're shivering...
Attack
Freeze!

Known bugs[edit | edit source]

When this minion is played, if an enemy minion has Freeze in its description (such as Water Elemental, or Snowchugger in Wild), this card's border will glow yellow but Cryomancer will not activate her effect. The code likely incorrectly looks for the keyword Frozen/Freeze instead of checking if enemies are Frozen, an overlooked error while programming the card.[1]

However, if there's an enemy minion which is actually Frozen, the card's border will fail to glow yellow, but will activate the Battlecry.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

This card's flavor text is a reference to the 2013 Disney movie Frozen.
