Strategy[edit | edit source]
Barista Lynchen is an excellent value play, which can double up on any Battlecry minions you can stick on the board. Copying one minion is decent value, but her true strength is copying multiple ones. She works especially well with 5-mana minions that can be played on the same turn as her, including Harrison Jones, Dragonmaw Scorcher, and the Drustvar Horror created by Swampqueen Hagatha. This also works with any minion under 5 mana, but they generally have weaker effects.
Your opponent will almost certainly try to kill off your Battlecry minions when they have the chance, so don't be afraid to take any value you can.
Barista Lynchen also works exceptionally well in decks that focus on Pogo-Hopper. Due to Pogo-Hopper's low cost, you can play one Pogo-Hopper (or two if you have them) and summon Barista Lynchen in a single turn. In this instance, rather than copy Pogo-Hopper with the likes of Lab Recruiter or Togwaggle's Scheme, it might actually be smarter to copy Barista Lynchen. If you can keep yourself decently alive once you've run through the majority of your deck (which can be facilitated with Myra's Unstable Element) and you stuff your deck with copies of Barista Lynchen, you can end up in a scenario where each turn you play a Pogo-Hopper, play a Barista Lynchen, add a Pogo-Hopper to your hand, rinse and repeat. If your opponent fails to kill either your Pogo-Hopper or Barista Lynchen, that's just another copy added to your hand on the following turn, making the battle quickly escalate in your favor so long as you can keep the board under control.
