Strategy[edit | edit source]

Corpse Raiser can sometimes represent incredible value with its Battlecry effect, which was previously exclusive to Shamans with the card Ancestral Spirit. Having neutral access to this effect opens up the possibility for new combos in other classes. Corpse Raiser is however a niche card: while its effect can be very powerful in a deck that can utilize it to its fullest, its 3/3 for 5 mana statline causes it to be a very weak minion to play when you are not getting maximum value out of its effect.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Summon
The grave buys you no rest!
Attack
