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.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- If a low-health hero attacks a Zombie Chow, simultaneously dealing fatal damage to both characters, the Zombie Chow's Deathrattle healing effect will be observed to trigger, but the player will still be destroyed, losing them the game.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
This card's Deathrattle is an obvious tradeoff for its otherwise low cost. However, in the right circumstances this can be offset, such as by silencing the minion, or by using it at the start of the game to trade for an enemy minion before the opponent has been damaged.
The most potent combination of all, however, is Auchenai Soulpriest. With this card in play, Zombie Chow's Deathrattle will instead deal 5 damage to the enemy, effectively turning it into a better version of Leper Gnome.
Lore[edit | edit source]
- Zombie Chows can be found in Naxxramas. They spawn during the encounter with Gluth. They must be kited until Gluth reduces their health with Decimate, and then quickly killed.
