Strategy[edit]

Alleycat is a decent starting minion. While its stats are only mediocre, its token can also be sold independently from the Alleycat, giving you a quick boost to your economy so you can squeeze in an extra tavern upgrade and/or purchase while also retaining a body on the board. For example, you can buy Alleycat on turn 1, upgrade on turn 2, then sell the token to buy two minions on turn 3.

Using Golden Khadgar can get you an automatic golden minion if you have the room. This card and its token are also good for heroes that rely on hoarding minions to make use of their hero power. For instance, Sylvanas Windrunner can use them as fodder, Millhouse Manastorm gets an extra purchase, and Edwin VanCleef can potentially grab an extra minion with the sell cost.
