Notes[edit | edit source]

  • As usual, on-damage triggers like this one will not trigger if the damage is prevented (such as by Divine Shield, Ice Block, Bolf Ramshield or Immune effects).
  • Snowchugger will no longer be offered for selection in Arena, since the 15th of September 2016.[1] However, it is still obtainable in Arena matches through random effects, such as Unstable Portal.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Works well in Freeze Mage decks, providing a way to slow enemy attacks and activate Ice Lance. If used to attack the enemy hero, can be used on multiple turns, making Ice Lance far less dependent on Frostbolt for its damage. This in turn can free up mana for other damage spells, allowing the mage more flexibility in their burst combos. Even without specific Freeze synergy, this is a solid pick for any Mech Mage deck.

While it lacks the Health to repeatedly lock down enemy minions, it works excellently as an easy way to prevent enemy heroes from attacking early, especially weapon-using Warrior, Druid and Rogue decks, and can allow it to effectively defend itself and other minions from attack.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Summon
Chugga-chugga-chugga-chugga.
Attack
Chugga-chugga!
Death
Chu-hugga! Choo...
