Strategy[edit | edit source]

Cornered Sentry's battlecry is comparable to Leeroy Jenkins, in that it's an over-statted minion with the disadvantage of summoning multiple 1/1 minions for your opponent. Much like Leeroy, there are a few ways to get around the downside. The most simple way is pairing it with a one-damage area of effect like Whirlwind, Ravaging Ghoul, or Blood Razor. This combo is especially effective if you also have a Frothing Berserker in play. It can also be comboed with Drywhisker Armorer for a 6 extra Armor. You can also combo it with Mind Control Tech to guarantee the Battlecry, although this runs the high risk of stealing a 1/1 Raptor. As a costlier last resort, Cornered Sentry can form a combo with Brawl when facing one or several enemy minions, increasing the odds that the opponent is left with a single 1/1 Raptor which will be far easier to manage. Other combos include Sea Giant and Second-Rate Bruiser.

Without any combos, Cornered Sentry can idealistically be seen as a 2/3 Taunt, since the three Raptors will deal that much damage to her. However, your opponent can buff the raptor tokens if you leave them alive, making them trade better. This is especially problematic against a Hunter, who can potentially make use of the Raptor's beast tag. On a positive note, if you're facing a Druid that uses Witching Hour, they can end up summoning a 1/1 Raptor instead.

Clever girl...

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Her death quote is a reference to the scene from the 1993 film Jurassic Park where game warden Robert Muldoon, played by actor Bob Peck, is killed attempting to hunt down a raptor. While he has the raptor in sight, a second raptor appears from a bush to his left. Muldoon looks at the raptor and says “Clever girl” before it jumps on him.
  • The three raptors also refer to the meme (called "Prattkeeping") that spawned from the movie Jurassic World (2015).
