Notes[edit | edit source]
- Similar to Shadow Madness, this spell's mind control effect only lasts until the end of the current turn, at which point the minion returns to its original owner.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
This card is equivalent to Shadow Madness in function, and while it costs much less Mana, its targets are more limited. On its own, it can be used against zoo decks early game to kill 2 minions for just 1 Mana or used on utility minions like Acolyte of Pain or Harvest Golem to steal its effects.
While this card becomes much less useful later in the game, it can be comboed with Pint-Size Potion to increase the scope of targetable minions.
This card has great synergy with Djinni of Zephyrs, although cards itself does not read it gives charge, but if you cast Potion of Madness while Djinni is in play it gets charge, because it triggers after the effect and the minion is already under your control (is friendly) and casts Potion of Madness on himself, which results in gaining charge.
Lore[edit | edit source]
Potion of Madness is sometimes nicknamed "Kaza-kola" by the Kabal. It is a cold, delicious and refreshing beverage personally brewed by Kazakus and which is frequently drunk by members of the Kabal, but it also erodes one's will and sense of self.
The name "Kaza-kola" is very similar to Kaja'Cola, an extremely popular goblin beverage brewed from the distilled form of the intellect-enhancing mineral of kaja'mite. This similarity was apparently intentional on the part of the Kabal and done in an attempt to capitalize on Kaja'Cola's fame.
The Gadgetzan Gazette Volume 32 #8 features an advertisement for Kaza-kola, which reads "The healthful crimson potion with kazazz! Feel energies like you wouldn't believe! Kaza-kola: All supernatural ingredients! Totally safe!*" The asterisk indicates a disclaimer written in extremely small print, and which reads: "Please keep out of reach of murlocs and pets. Never consume more than 2 oz of Kaza-kola in a 72 hour period. These statements have not been evaluated by the Gadgetzan Alchemy Authority." The page also features a clip-out coupon for a free bottle of Kaza-kola with the first purchase made near the waterfront.
