Boompistol Bully is an epic neutral minion card, from the Galakrond's Awakening set.

How to get[edit]

Two copies of regular Boompistol Bully are obtained by defeating The Dragonflights in Galakrond's Awakening's Chapter 3 of E.V.I.L. campaign.

Once the regular version has been obtained, both regular and golden versions can be crafted and disenchanted.

Boompistol Bully is an equivalent to Loatheb with identical stats, but its Battlecry raises the cost of the opponent's Battlecry cards (including weapons and Hero cards) instead of spells. It can be used as a tech card to delay the opponent's Battlecry cards for a turn, especially since many decks use Battlecry minions as key cards. For example, Boompistol Bully can prevent Reno Jackson from being played, or slowing down the progress of Battlecry Shaman.

It's important to read when your opponent is about to play an important Battlecry. If they've kept a specific card in their hand for a long time, there's a good chance it's a card with a reactive effect. Boompistol Bully can also be used with Chaos Gazer to most likely discard a card from your opponent's hand.

Do be cautious when playing this card while ahead. Unlike Loatheb, it does not protect your board from Area of effect spells, possibly giving your opponent the perfect opportunity to waste your 5-mana play and recover tempo.


Nobody moves, and nobody gets hurt.
Move and you're dead!
