Strategy[edit | edit source]
The unique factor of this card lies in its Deathrattle, adding two ineffectual cards to the opponent's deck. Much like Weasel Tunneler, this can create 'dead draws' that interfere with the opponent's strategy without the risk of your opponent playing those tunnelers to give you dead draws in turn. The two Albatrosses also disable Highlander effects and effects that require no neutrals like Lightforged Crusader until one of them is drawn, making this minion an excellent counter to decks reliant on their power.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This card is a reference to The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, an 18th century poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. In the story, an albatross, typically seen as good fortune due to flying on favorable winds, is shot and killed for meat by a sailor. As a result, the crew suffers nothing but bad winds and rough seas. Thus, they tie the corpse of the albatross around the offending sailor's neck for bringing bad luck onto them.
