Strategy[edit | edit source]

This minion has no special abilities, but as a Beast it provides synergy with many hunter cards. It also has reasonable stats for its cost - being a 2/5 it can easily kill other early minions without dying.

It is also conveniently located behind Houndmaster on the mana-curve: Playing Carrion Grub on turn 3 can turn it into 4/7 with Taunt on turn 4.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Carrion grubs (also called carrion worms and maggot beasts) are carrion-eating larvae living in plagued areas of Azeroth. They are especially living in the scourged zones of Loradaeron.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This card's flavor text is a reference to the 1977 Kansas song "Carry On Wayward Son".
  • This is the first "vanilla" minion for the hunter class, having no special abilities, although it does have the Beast minion type.
  • This is the second class-specific "vanilla" minion, the first being Fearsome Doomguard from The Grand Tournament set.
