Strategy[edit | edit source]

Darkshire Councilman is best used in Zoolock decks. Summoning many minions can grow Darkshire Councilman to huge Attack. It is best used in conjunction with spells that summon many minions such as Forbidden Ritual. It works well in Wild format with Imp-losion.

While its initial 1 Attack is very weak, the Councilman's 5 Health gives it a good chance of surviving long enough to get buffed and trade favourably. However, buffing its Attack immediately can ensure that the opponent is not able to trade into it without also losing their minions in the process.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Darkshire in World of Warcraft

After years of defending their town against the terrors of Duskwood, the grim defenders of Darkshire are no strangers to horror or madness. However, this particular councilman is not what he appears. While he speaks in favour of the people of Darkshire, within him lurks a growing darkness, which serves only one master.

From Wowpedia:

Darkshire is a once-quaint little woodland village located in Duskwood, but it has fallen on literally dark times. The surrounding forests have been filled with an evil malaise that cloaks the land in constant darkness. The walking dead choke the graveyards, and foul creatures known as worgen have overrun many of the outlying farmsteads. Even worse, Stormwind has all but abandoned the village and the surrounding area, as most of the Stormwind army is currently off fighting on the Horde/Alliance front. This has left the stubborn people of Duskwood little choice but to defend themselves.
The small town now numbers a scant 3,500 people, a great deal of them refugees from Raven Hill. Lord Ello Ebonlocke is the elected mayor of this town. His daughter, Commander Althea Ebonlocke, runs the Night Watch, a local militia that works to keep the roads free and the creeping darkness back for as long as possible. They strike against the undead and worgen that plague the land. The people of Duskwood are a jumpy and suspicious lot, but they are desperate for any aid they can get against the evil that now surrounds their homes.
