Deal 1 damage to a minion. If that kills it, draw a card.

If your spells look like horrifying skulls, let's be honest, you should get to draw some cards.

Mortal Coil is a basic warlock spell card.

Contents

[edit] How to get

Mortal Coil x 2 are a reward for raising a warlock to level 4.

Golden Mortal Coil is a reward for raising a warlock to levels 43 and 44.

Mortal Coil is soulbound and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

[edit] Strategy

In addition to the obvious removal potential, it is important to note that this spell can be cast at your own minion in order to draw a card (particularly useful in decks that are designed to draw as many cards as possible). It can also be played as a last ditch effort to draw a card that could save you from losing (such as a taunt) when at low life.

This card is best played on targets with 1 Health, but can also be useful for removing Divine Shield or simply dealing damage where necessary.

It is very helpful to increase spell damage for Mortal Coil in particular, as it will allow it to take out medium sized minions such as Shattered Sun Cleric and draw a card for a mere 1 mana.

[edit] Lore

Mortal Coil is a talented warlock spell from World of Warcraft. It causes the target to run in horror for 3 seconds, and restores a portion of the warlock's health. It is very useful as a form of crowd control, as well as a regular method of maintaining health levels.

[edit] Trivia

This card may have been named "Death Coil" during the game's alpha. Death Coil was the predecessor to the World of Warcraft ability Mortal Coil, but was replaced with Mists of Pandaria.
