With the arrival of Whispers of the Old Gods and game formats, the wiki has switched over to Standard format.
The preferred format for new and advanced players alike, most card lists will from now on only show cards valid in Standard format, making it easier for readers to find the information they're looking for.
For those interested in Wild format, Wild listings can now be found on subpages, such as Deathrattle/Wild format, linked just above main card listings, and Wild strategy and tips are still featured in our articles.

Strategy[edit | edit source]
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 | edit source]
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.
