Commander Rhyssa is a legendary paladin minion card, from the Rise of Shadows set.

How to get[edit]

Commander Rhyssa can be obtained through Rise of Shadows card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Commander Rhyssa 1600 400
Golden Commander Rhyssa 3200 1600


Commander Rhyssa needs to be alive during the secret trigger phase for effect to work(For example if you play Avenge and play Commander Rhyssa on your turn while you have Bone Drake on board and your opponent casts Hellfire which kills Rhyssa, the secret will trigger only once). Same for Redemption.[1]


Commander Rhyssa is an excellent choice for any Paladin deck focused around Secrets. Her stats are above average for her cost, which means that she's a safe card to play even when no Secrets are in play. She can then be followed on curve with Bellringer Sentry or, failing that, numerous Secrets straight from your hand. Try your best to keep her alive as long as possible to make the most of her persistent effect.

Keep in mind that Autodefense Matrix and Repentance triggering twice will be meaningless (giving a minion Divine Shield twice means nothing, as does setting a minion's Health to 1 twice); if you have access to other Secrets while Rhyssa is on the field, it would generally be smarter to prioritize those.

Since Rhyssa needs to remain alive, Adaptation's Liquid Membrane and Crackling Shield serves well.

Redemption and Getaway Kodo have great synergy with Rhyssa. Redemption will create another copy when Rhyssa is destroyed, and Getaway Kodo will add 2 more to your hand.

Body Wrapper can fit really well when Rhyssa is in your deck. Silence is your worst enemy, and whe she is destroyed, Body Wrapper will provide another copy to use her another time.

In Wild, Sacred Trial is likewise meaningless with Rhyssa's effect, as it can't destroy a minion twice.


Dalaran, to arms!
Defend the city!


Commander Rhyssa is unique to Hearthstone. She is the leader of the Dalaran City Guard.[2]

Rhyssa appears to be a gnome paladin, even sporting a unique mechanostrider mount. If this is the case, she is the first known example of a gnome paladin, which is not available as a playable race-class combination in World of Warcraft.
