How to get
|Golden Aya Blackpaw||3200||1600|
Aya is an easy fit into any Jade Golem deck. Not only does she boost your Jade Golems by +2/+2, she's also a formidable threat with a strong Battlecry and Deathrattle as long as you've played at least two Jade Golem cards before her. Even if you haven't, any Jade Golems you play after she dies will be strong on their own.
- Golems are a girl's best friend!
- You die now! *giggles*
- You're no fun! *cries*
- "Aya Blackpaw is the last living heir of the wealthy Blackpaw family. Using the Gadgetzan Museum of Ancient Artifacts as her headquarters, and shrouding her activities behind her family’s reputation as generous philanthropists, she issues orders to us through her loyal bodyguard and servant, White Eyes. She is the true leader of the Jade Lotus.
- Aya is youthful, energetic, and seemingly impulsive. That is a mask; in truth she is calculating, ruthless, and as hard as the jade we steal for her. Crucially, young Aya has the unique ability to create Jade Golems, and she is the source of the trinkets that so many of us carry. How she came by this incredible power is a mystery, though I swear I have seen her communing with the spirit of a Mogu king I could not name. Such a being must be most ancient indeed.
- However it was that she came by her gift, Aya has successfully created an army of Jade Golems. What task she intends for them, and for us, is a mystery . . . but the Jade Lotus will be ready."
- Blackpaw's likeness appears on the Counterfeit Coin.
- Aya's summon quote is a parody of the phrase "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend", originally a song famously sung by Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
