Strategy[edit | edit source]

Please add any available information to this section.

Bwonsamdi is very powerful when used in a combination/aggro Priest deck. Aggressive decks always benefit from card draws, so filling your hand with immediately playable cards is definitely wanted. You don't need to play Bwonsamdi with its spirit card as simply drawing that many one cost minions is good enough to make him valuable.

Although risky, you could attempt to synergize Bwonsamdi with Surrender to Madness in order give all your minions a pseudo Keleseth or combine it with Prince Keleseth himself to make your 1 drop minions significantly more imposing.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Bwonsamdi (pronounced "BWAN-sam-dee") is a powerful loa that controls the spirits of the dead, primarily of trolls. Bwonsamdi's temple is the Necropolis, located in Nazmir on Zandalar. The spirits of all trolls on Zandalar go to him upon death, and he brings the spirits of any who worship him into his realm, the Other Side. Bwonsamdi grows more powerful the more souls are in his care.
His face is described as looking like a rush'kah mask. After someone undergoes the rite of binding, a ritual "as old as the world itself", the soul of anything they kill goes to Bwonsamdi. To honor the loa of death, Zandalari will don masks in their rituals and pray to him. Bwonsamdi in turn will either answer in kind, or curse them with pain, depending on his mood.

In Hearthstone lore, Bwonsamdi serves as the patron loa of Bwonsamdi's Zombies, the priest team in Rastakhan's Rumble.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Bwonsamdi is the only non-Beast loa.
