Ragnaros interviews hundreds of Fire Elementals for the position of "Destroyer" but very few have what it takes.

See this card on Hearthpwn

Fireguard Destroyer is a common shaman minion card, from the Blackrock Mountain set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Regular Fireguard Destroyer is obtained x2 by defeating Lord Victor Nefarius in Blackrock Mountain.

Once the regular version has been obtained, both regular and golden versions can be crafted and disenchanted:

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Fireguard Destroyer 40 5
Golden Fireguard Destroyer 400 50

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Fireguard Destroyer is a variable card with a strong RNG component. At its minimum, it is a 4/6 for 4 mana + 1 Overload, which is barely efficient; but at its best, it is a 7/6 for 4 + 1, which is extremely efficient.

Overall, Fireguard Destroyer is actually mana efficient (including the Overload) 75% of the time (anything but the minimum 1 Attack boost). However, the maximum 4 Attack boost makes it susceptible to Big Game Hunter. A good Turn 4 followup to Unbound Elemental.

Synergizes poorly with Reincarnate and Ancestral Spirit since they wipe the Attack boost.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Summon
The Firelord calls.
Attack
All will burn.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Fireguard Destroyers are hostile elementals found in Blackrock Depths.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This card's flavor text humorously describes Ragnaros the Firelord interviewing Fire Elementals to find those worthy of becoming Fireguard Destroyers. This is particularly ironic considering the Destroyers are typically weaker than the Fire Elementals, and lack their powerful Battlecry.
