Whenever you summon a minion with Deathrattle, gain +1/+1.

In a world where you can run to a spirit healer and resurrect yourself, Undertakers do pretty light business.

See this card on Hearthpwn

Undertaker is a common Naxxramas minion card.

How to get[edit]

Regular Undertaker is obtained by defeating Patchwerk in Curse of Naxxramas's Construct Quarter. Regular Undertaker is soulbound and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Once the regular version has been obtained, the golden version can be crafted:

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Golden Undertaker 400 50

Strategy[edit]

A very strong opening play, the Undertaker's value relies on the summoning of friendly minions with Deathrattle. A deck filled with cheap Deathrattle minions such as Leper Gnome, Nerubian Egg and Harvest Golem increases the odds of buffing the Undertaker within the following turns, allowing him to attack and trade with multiple targets.

Quotes[edit]

Summon
Bring out your dead.
Attack
Oh, goody!

Trivia[edit]

His summoning quote, "Bring out your dead", is a reference to the calls made by those whose task it was to collect dead bodies during the Medieval Black Death. Relatives of the deceased would often keep the dead body in their home in the hopes that the dead person would revive, and would have to "bring out their dead" so that the corpse collectors could take them away. The phrase was specifically chosen as a tribute to Monty Python and the Holy Grail, in which the line is used.[1]

The Undertaker's Attack quote "Oh, goody!" may be a reference to Buster Bluth from the sitcom Arrested Development.
