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.

Despite his comparatively poor raw stat for cost economy, Hogger is always good value since, even if the opponent removes or Silences him immediately, you will still get at least 1 Gnoll from him, justifying his cost. The only exception is if he dies before the end of the turn you play him (for example if you play him into a Snipe).


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.


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.
