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]

Siphon Soul is the warlock's answer to the healthiest or most powerful enemies. Similar to Assassinate for rogues, it is the warlock's simple and certain removal spell. Its added bonus of a 3 heal designs it specifically for warlocks and their tendency to hurt themselves. It also has the versatility of targeting your own minions, useful to trigger deathrattles (eg. Abomination) or if the minion is going to die within the next turn, such as due to Power Overwhelming. There is no downside to this card besides its somewhat hefty 6 mana cost. As a straight up removal effect it bypasses Divine Shields.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Siphon Soul is likely based on the old Affliction talents Siphon Life and Soul Siphon in World of Warcraft (these are no longer in the game). The concept of soul draining is a common theme for warlocks. Drain Life and Drain Soul are two such spells. Affliction warlocks specialise in draining spells, and are able to capture the souls of their victims in Soul Shards, which can then be consumed in order to empower even further their already formidable abilities.
