Taunt. Deathrattle: Deal 2 damage to ALL characters.
Abominations enjoy Fresh Meat and long walks on the beach.
How to get[edit | edit source]
Abomination can be obtained through Classic card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward. Golden Abomination can also be obtained through the Highest Rank Bonus chest at the end of each Ranked season.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
The Abomination is a minion that can be used both offensively and defensively. Just having it on the field will stop many strategies, particularly low-health minion aggro strategies, right in their tracks due to the deadliness of its Deathrattle ability.
As a 4/4 minion with Taunt, it can trade for at least a few weaker minions or damage a beefier one - and hopefully finish it off with its Deathrattle. The Deathrattle is similar to Explosive Sheep, but damages heroes as well as minions.

Lore[edit | edit source]
Abominations are a type of undead creature first seen as a unit in Warcraft III and then again in World of Warcraft. This card's art depicts an Unstoppable Abomination from the Kel'Thuzad raid encounter.
- Abominations are twisted, mutilated undead creatures comprised of multiple dead limbs and body parts from many different corpses. They are enormous warriors, scarred by loose stitchings and putrid, open sores. They love to carve flesh and tear their enemies apart. The slow-moving and dull-witted abominations constantly drip blood and smell like disease-ridden slaughterhouses. They carry large cleavers into combat and wield various sickle-bladed hooks on their disproportionate limbs
- Almost all abominations lack any real intelligence, having an I.Q. closest to that of an ogre on average. Abominations outwardly appear strangely joyful due to their absent-minded expressions and mannerisms, though this is most likely due to their low level of mental capacity. Like their undead cousins, abominations lust for flesh and are known to eat not only the living but the dead as well.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Naxxramas Tokens" series, for the card Unstoppable Abomination.
