Strategy[edit | edit source]

Please add any available information to this section.

This card continues the flavor of powerful positional Hunter spells. With one card, you can destroy two minions for high card efficiency. Compared to Assassinate, long considered the baseline for Destroy effects, Crushing Walls has twice the value for only two more mana.

However, the high cost of Crushing Walls and its ease to play around means that you usually spend your entire turn playing it and give your opponent another turn to refresh their board, making this a hard card to use. Deadly Shot is usually a better card, since it's cheap removal that can't be played around.

In order to play around Crushing Walls, just summon smaller minions to the outermost edges of your board. Be aware, however, that this leaves you vulnerable to Explosive Shot.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The flavor text is a quote from Star Wars Episode IV, from the trash compactor scene.
