Strategy[edit]

Lay on Hands is a late-game oriented card. In most scenarios, it should be used after taking big damage from a player. This card is highly valued by some, not only for its game sustain, but for its draw power as well. Unfortunately this can often only prolong a lost game, but it is a great top deck for tricky situations.

Lore[edit]

Lay on Hands is a paladin ability from World of Warcraft that heals the target for an amount equal to the casting paladin's health. One of the paladin's most infamous abilities, it is frequently used to save a target (often the paladin himself) from imminent death, effectively restarting the fight from full health. It has often been criticised for its power, largely by players not familiar with the other weaknesses of the paladin class, due to its ability to allow the paladin to apparently cheat death.

The 'laying on of hands' is also a real-world ritual found in many faiths, which takes many different forms.
