Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Blubber Baron's effect means that summoning Doppelgangster will buff Blubber Baron in the hand by +3/+3, since the two copies summoned by Doppelgangster have the same text and Battlecry as the original card.[1] As this is a similar case as Saronite Chain Gang, playing one of these will give a Blubber Baron in the player's hand +2/+2.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This minion largely shares the same strengths and weaknesses as Bolvar Fordragon. If drawn early, it can snowball into a huge minion later in the game. If drawn late, it's a useless minion that can kill your tempo. It's also just as vulnerable to Silence effects.

This minion is well suited for inclusion in Grimy Goons-themed hunter, paladin and warrior decks, as he can either get double benefits from any Battlecry that buffs minions in the player's hand, or get buffed even when the Battlecry hits another minion in the hand. Because its effect triggers from summoning Battlecry minions, it gets buffed multiple times with Doppelgangster and Saronite Chain Gang, which are common inclusions in those deck.

One for the boss, two for me. *chuckles*
