Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This spell causes the target minion to deal damage equal to its Attack value to the minions adjacent to it, in the order left-right.
  • No combat occurs: thus, the target minion does not suffer damage in return, and Windfury does not affect damage dealt by Betrayal nor cause the target minion to deal its damage more than once.
  • For all game purposes the damage dealt through Betrayal is not dealt by the spell itself, but by the target minion. Consequently:
  • This spell can target a minion with 0 Attack or without adjacent minions: even if no damage will be dealt, it still counts as a spell played.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Minion placement becomes important when playing against a rogue: Betrayal allows them to use one of your friendly high-Attack minion as a "bomb" to take out the minions next to it. If expecting Betrayal, or playing against a rogue who might Discover it, try to place high-Attack minions on the far left or far right of your board, to prevent optimal Betrayal play.
