Strategy[edit]

Deathaxe Punisher represents a total of 5/5 stats for 4 Mana, although the +2/+2 buffing effect is dependant on having a Lifesteal minion in hand, which is hard to guarantee, as there are currently no decks that carry more than one or two Lifesteal minions. Also, since this is a hand buff effect, the +2/+2 is delayed, and requires more mana investment to get into play, making Deathaxe Punisher a 3/3 for 4 Mana with no immediate impact.

Paladin have some great cards to work along with Deathaxe Punisher like Crystalsmith Kangor, Wickerflame Burnbristle, Chillblade Champion, Shirvallah.

High Priestess Jeklik is a really powerful card to combine with. Since every discard generate copies, every copy will keep the buff, while becoming an almost infinite minion resource.
