Strategy[edit | edit source]

Arena Patron, despite being nearly similar to Grim Patron of the old, is far more gimmicky and far less efficient then its bretheren. On top of its equally low stats, it needs to have a weak minion to kill while also requiring Rush to take immediate advantage of its effect, not to mention that in most cases you won't be able to gain more than one Arena Patron per turn to do the fact that Overkill effects are restricted to during your own turn. At best, it will require Houndmaster Shaw and many low health enemy minions to be able to fill your board with Arena Patrons.

In Arena, the same problems persist, but if you are able to play this minion without getting retaliated, it effectively acts like an "immortal" 3/3, as long as there is something with 2 or less health to kill on each turn.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Summon
A fight? Let me see!
Effect triggering
Get in there!
Attack
Ooh, me next!

Lore[edit | edit source]

Judging by his armor, this ornery Dark Iron dwarf appears to be a member of Akali's Rhinos.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Arena Patron is a reference to the Blackrock Mountain minion Grim Patron, with identical mana cost and stats and similar card art, effects, and quotes. Arena Patron's flavor text references the Grim Patron quote "Everyone, get in here!"
