Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Drawing a Scroll of Wonder from Deck of Wonders will cause it to cast a random spell and draw a card as usual.[1]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Book of Specters is a powerful card draw tool. The card is strongest when run in a deck with mostly minions, allowing you to draw three cards far more consistently. However, it can be okay to run in a slightly more spell-focused deck, so long as it isn't a combo deck. Even discarding one spell is acceptable, since drawing two for two mana is incredible. This is especially the case for an Elemental deck because the main win condition is Frost Lich Jaina, so drawing three cards deeper into your deck is a benefit even if some are discarded.

This card has obvious synergy with Archmage Arugal, adding up to six minions to your hand for only four mana.

Book of Specters can safely draw Aluneth and Frost Lich Jaina, since it only discards spells.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The flavour text is a reference to the Necronomicon[2], a grimoire that appeared in many of H. P. Lovecraft's[3] stories.
