Strategy[edit | edit source]

This card has strong synergy with anything that shuffles in cards, such as Togwaggle's Scheme and Lab Recruiter. While most minions that shuffle in cards can shuffle extra cards by replaying it in some way (like Shadowstep & Spirit of the Shark, or Sonya Shadowdancer & Brann Bronzebeard in Wild), this card is the only way to multiply spells that shuffle in cards like Academic Espionage. On top of this, this minion has good stats for its cost, so it can be played on curve with no issues and is likely able to survive the next turn to play these shuffle cards on tempo.

Augmented Elekk also works spectacularly well with Bomb Warrior, shuffling in extra bombs after equipping Wrenchcalibur or in combination with Clockwork Goblin. The consistency boost will deal more damage to your opponent and set up for Blastmaster Boom more easily.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Elekk are a species of large, elephant-like creatures native to Draenor that the draenei commonly employ as mounts. Elekk became sickly and corrupt as a result of Draenor's fel corruption and subsequent transformation into Outland.
Patient and strong, the elekk exemplify the draenei attitude towards the hardships of life. They can live to be over a hundred years old. It is said an elekk never forgets.
