[edit] Strategy

If not dealt with, Hogger can become a supreme annoyance for the opponent when played. Summoning the 2/2 means that you block at least one attack each turn, giving you immense board control. Hogger's dominating board presence makes it a soft taunt for your opponent.

[edit] Trivia

This card's flavor text is a variant on a well-known Chuck Norris 'fact', referring to Hogger's 'legendary' status among World of Warcraft players.

[edit] Lore

From Wowpedia:

Hogger is a level 11 elite named Riverpaw gnoll chieftain in Southern Elwynn Forest. His defeat is the objective of a quest for low-level Alliance players.

While Hogger's significance in-game was originally minimal, his relative difficulty at such a low level has caused him to become one of the most well-known and popular minor characters in the game. His role in-game was subsequently expanded with Wrath of the Lich King and Cataclysm, and a gnoll battle pet named Hogs is planned as reward for the game's 10th anniversary.
