Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This minion's Battlecry summons a random minion with a mana cost of 3. Any collectible minion may be summoned; uncollectible minions will not be summoned.
  • Faceless Summoner will no longer be offered for selection in Arena, since the 15th of September 2016.[1] However, it is still obtainable in Arena matches through random effects, such as Unstable Portal.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This is a strong minion card for Mages. A vanilla 5/5 body normally represents just over 4 mana in cost, so paying 6 mana for this minion plus a random 3-mana minion is usually a strong play. Some 3-mana minions (especially those with a Battlecry, which will not activate when summoned by Faceless Summoner) present less value, others can have a significant impact.

Some of the summoned minions have an immediate effect on the battlefield, like Argent Horserider and Wolfrider, but Dreadscale and Mana Tide Totem are also notable mentions. There is also a small chance a Taunt minion will be summoned.

Possible summons[edit | edit source]
