How to get[edit | edit source]
|Golden Cabalist's Tome||1600||400|
Strategy[edit | edit source]
A great late-game card when the player has barely any spells left in their deck, or has nearly emptied their hand.
Extremely good in Arena where spells are difficult to obtain.
Possible spells[edit | edit source]
|Name / Desc||Rarity||Class||Cost||Description|
Deal 3 damage randomly split among all enemies. You'd think you'd be able to control your missiles a little better since you're a powerful mage and all.
Summon two 0/2 minions with Taunt. Oh hey it's Mirror Image! !egamI rorriM s'ti yeh hO
Deal 1 damage to all enemy minions. This spell is much better than Arcane Implosion.
Deal 3 damage to a character and Freeze it. It is customary to yell "Chill out!" or "Freeze!" or "Ice ice, baby!" when you play this card.
Draw 2 cards. Playing this card makes you SMARTER. And let's face it: we could all stand to be a little smarter.
Freeze all enemy minions. Hey man, that's cold. Literally and metaphorically.
Deal 6 damage. This spell is useful for burning things. If you're looking for spells that toast things, or just warm them a little, you're in the wrong place.
Transform a minion into a 1/1 Sheep. There was going to be a pun in this flavor text, but it just came out baa-d.
Deal 4 damage to all enemy minions. When the ground is on fire, you should not stop, drop, and roll.
Each turn this is in your hand, transform it into a random Mage spell. Next turn, this is going to be AMAZING.
The next Elemental you play this turn costs (2) less. It's just lighter fluid.
Freeze an enemy. This is delicious! Oh no. BRAIN FREEEEEEEZE!
|Breath of Sindragosa||Common||Mage||1|
Deal 2 damage to a random enemy minion and Freeze it. Is it cold in here or is it just Sindragosa?
Freeze a character. If it was already Frozen, deal 4 damage instead. The trick is not to break the lance. Otherwise, you have "Ice Pieces." Ice Pieces aren't as effective.
Sidequest: Spend 8 Mana on spells. Reward: Summon a 6/6 Dragon. Upon taking up the spellbook, Reno realized with a start: "I can't read."
Discover a Spell Damage minion. Your next one costs (1) less. A long forgotten tome whose very essence seeps of magic. 40 dust, used.
|Ray of Frost||Common||Mage||1|
Freeze a minion. If it's already Frozen, deal 2 damage to it. If you have zero chill, this can help.
Deal 1 damage to a minion and the minions next to it. Literally starstruck.
|Tome of Intellect||Common||Mage||1|
Add a random Mage spell to your hand. Just a compilation of napkins of intellect.
Draw a Secret from your deck. It costs (0). I'm not saying it was aliens, but it was TOTALLY aliens!
Deal 2 damage. Add a 1/2 Elemental to your hand. Oh, a wise geyser eh?
Deal 4 damage to a random enemy minion. Calling something a flamecannon really doesn't do much to distinguish it from other goblin devices.
Reduce the Cost of spells in your deck by (1). "Gettin' them discounts in bulk amounts, spells can come, and spells can go, castin' costs drop with my sweet, sweet flow."
Each player draws 2 cards. Abstract: Analyzing systemic applications of coldlight data sets vis-a-vis shuffle-related paradigms. Conclusion: Yay, cards!
Destroy a Frozen minion. What's cooler than being cool?
Freeze a minion. If it's already Frozen, destroy it. Lick the ice block. I triple-double-dog-dare-you.
Secret: When a friendly minion dies, put 2 copies of it into your hand. The one time when duping cards won't get your account banned!
Secret: After a minion attacks your hero, deal 3 damage to all enemy minions. Not to be confused with the burn ward.
Deal 3 damage. Shuffle a (6 damage for 3 mana card) into your deck. Why does a forgotten torch turn into a roaring torch with no provocation? It's one of life's many mysteries.
Secret: After your opponent plays a minion, put 2 copies of it into your hand. It's like déjà vu, times two.
Secret: When your hero is attacked, gain 8 Armor. This is Rank 1. Rank 2 is Chocolate Milk Barrier.
Secret: After your opponent plays a minion, summon a copy of it. "You go first." - Krush'gor the Behemoth, to his pet boar.
Secret: After your opponent casts a spell, summon a random 4-Cost minion. More aromatic than a regular portal.
|Cone of Cold||Common||Mage||4|
Freeze a minion and the minions next to it, and deal 1 damage to them. Magi of the Kirin Tor were casting Cubes of Cold for many years before Cones came into fashion some 90 years ago.
Deal 4 damage. Costs (1) less for each minion that died this turn. Dragons breathe fire, sure, but did you know they can also breathe Cotton Candy? It's harder to give them a reason to do that, though.
Deal 8 damage to a minion. It's on the rack next to ice lance, acid lance, and English muffin lance.
Deal 5 damage. Summon a random 5-Cost minion. Come to beautiful Firelands! Where it's "Way nicer than the Abyssal Maw!"'
Deal 2 damage to a minion. If you're holding a Dragon, Discover a spell. One of many side effects from eating mana cookies.
Freeze a minion.
Combo: Also deal 3 damage to it. "The professor called on me, and I totally froze!"
Sidequest: Play an Elemental 2 turns in a row.
Reward: Draw 3 spells from your deck. Reno’s lucky he wasn’t caught by a fire elemental.
|Font of Power||Rare||Mage||1|
Discover a Mage minion. If your deck has no minions, keep all 3. It's Comic Sans.
Discover a spell that costs (3) or less. The world is not ready for an illusion of this depth and intricacy!
Add 2 random minions to your hand. Let's see what's behind rift number one!
Draw 1 card (improved by Spell Damage). The font of the arcane gives nearly limitless access to power and energy! But it can't keep you awake, for that we still use coffee.
|Lesser Ruby Spellstone||Rare||Mage||2|
Add a random Mage spell to your hand. (Play two Elementals to upgrade.) The final stone undid its master
Spun into wards by nameless caster
Azari wailed a savage roar
Now sealed in nether, evermore.
Add a random minion to your hand. It costs (3) less. The denizens of Azeroth have no idea how much work goes into stabilizing portals. We spend like 30% of GDP on portal upkeep.
Deal 5 damage randomly split among all enemies. Forecast: Cloudy with a chance of fireballs.
Secret: When your opponent casts a spell, Counter it. What's the difference between a mage playing with Counterspell and a mage who isn't? The mage who isn't is getting Pyroblasted in the face.
Secret: When a friendly minion dies, summon a random minion with the same Cost. Burning man, brah.
Secret: After your opponent plays a minion, deal 6 damage to it and any excess to their hero. Sometimes it's safer NOT to read the warning signs.
Secret: When your opponent cast a spell, add a copy to your hand that costs (0). Nice spell. YOINK!
Transform a minion into a 4/2 Boar with Charge. It's always Huffer.
|Potion of Polymorph||Rare||Mage||3|
Secret: After your opponent plays a minion, transform it into a 1/1 Sheep. Tastes like Baaaaananas.
Secret: When a minion attacks your hero, destroy it. Rumor has it that Deathwing brought about the Cataclysm after losing a game to this card. We may never know the truth.
Deal 2 damage to all minions. The secret ingredient in Kazakus's award-winning chili recipe.
Destroy a minion. Summon 2 minions of the same Cost to replace it. If only you'd let it go to voicemail...
Choose a friendly minion. Summon a copy of it. Dang, I'm looking pretty hot!
Discover a Secret and cast it. Corrupt: Discover 2 instead. If you liked it, then you shoulda put a ring on it!
Deal 4 damage to a minion. If you played an Elemental last turn, this costs (1). The hoof.
The hoof is on fire.
Deal 2 damage to all enemy minions and Freeze them. This spell can be very Entertaining.
|Mask of C'Thun||Rare||Mage||7|
Deal 10 damage randomly split among all enemies. Hide in the mask, but it will wear you. Through its gleaming eye, you shall see true.
Freeze an enemy. Summon two 3/6 Water Elementals. "Dancing with the Satyrs… on Ice!"
Summon an 8/8 Elemental. Repeat for each Elemental you played last turn. Considering all the other hazards at Darkmoon, overindulgent pyrotechnics seem downright pedestrian.
Spend all your Mana. Deal that much damage to a minion. WARNING: This flame is not to be used unless you are a licensed acolyte of the Old Gods.
Deal 2 damage to a minion. This spell gets double bonus from Spell Damage. Now with 100% more blast!
Shoot three missiles at random enemy minions that transform them into ones that cost (1) less. Most intermural spell-dueling contests end with a field of wisps.
|Book of Specters||Epic||Mage||2|
Draw 3 cards. Discard any spells drawn. Known throughout the land as the Spooky-nomicon.
Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it's Frozen, draw a card. This may appear weak at frost glance, but it's actually a very ice spell.
Discover a spell.
Reduce its Cost by (2). It's the Ancient Tol'vir symbol for "Whoops!"
Deal 4 damage to a minion. Any excess damages both neighbors. Sally is friends with three Silverhand Recruits conveniently standing in a line. After casting this spell, how many friends does she have left? (Show your work.)
Secret: When your hero takes fatal damage, prevent it and become Immune this turn. Ice is nice, and will suffice!
|Rigged Faire Game||Epic||Mage||3|
Secret: If you didn't take any damage during your opponent's turn, draw 3 cards. What's faire is fair.
Copy the lowest Cost minion in your hand. It's like déjà vu, times two.
Secret: When an enemy casts a spell on a minion, summon a 1/3 as the new target. While it's fun to intercept enemy lightning bolts, a spellbender much prefers to intercept opposing Marks of the Wild. It just feels meaner. And blood elves... well, they're a little mean.
Secret: When one of your minions is attacked, summon a copy of it. Sometimes you get punched so hard they see double.
Summon two random 2-Cost minions (improved by Spell Damage). Sometimes science is more art than science. A lot of people don't get that.

Put a copy of each friendly minion into your hand. Medivh's echo haunts Karazhan, eternally cheating at chess and Hearthstone.

Deal 8 damage to a minion. Any excess damage continues to the left or right. Why don't they ever run perpendicular?
Deal 15 damage to a minion and 3 damage to adjacent ones. When you absolutely, positively, have to kill all the dinosaurs.

Shoot three missiles at random enemies that deal 3 damage each. Wow, and I thought Arcane Missiles was great!
Put one of each Secret from your deck into the battlefield. The secret is in the frosting.

Lore[edit | edit source]
- The most populous of those who count among the Old Gods’ mortal servants—including Yogg-Saron’s followers—are the Twilight Cultists. Some speculate that they got that name because they are working to bring about the twilight of the world. The truth is, it’s just a book club that got really, REALLY, out of hand. Their taste in literature is extremely questionable, but their fan fiction is absolutely packed with, uh, “interesting” passages. Bonus: this book licks your thumb for you when it’s time to flip the page!
