Copy is an effect which produces copies of existing cards. When Copying living minions, this includes Copying all damage and enchantments. However, when Copying a minion that has been destroyed, only the basic minion is copied.
Copy effects are usually paired with a Summon effect, to summon the minion into the battlefield, or a Generate effect, to place the Copy directly into the player's hand. In the case of Faceless Manipulator, an existing minion is instead Transformed into the copied minion, and with Drakonid Operative, a copy of the opponent's card is instead Discovered.
Copy effects are most commonly available to priests and mages. Paladins and shamans both have cards that "return a minion to life" or "resummon" it; this is considered a Copy effect on the card that has just died, combined with a Summon effect.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Copy effects do not Copy in-hand enchantments, such as those from Emperor Thaurissan or The Mistcaller.
