Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This card's Battlecry randomly selects a minion card with a base mana cost of 1 from each deck (if any) and puts them into the battlefield. In particular:
    • This card's effect only checks the base mana cost of cards in each player's deck, regardless of cost-modifying effects that are attached to the card (such as through Renounce Darkness) or that will affect the card once in the player's hand (such as Molten Giant or Mana Wraith).
    • If a player's unused deck contains no 1-Cost minion, no minion will be summoned for that player.
    • The friendly minion is put into play first, followed by the enemy minion.[1]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

By controlling how many and which 1-cost minions the player has in their deck, they can guarantee the outcome of their Desert Camel's Battlecry.

Injured Kvaldir is an excellent minion to put in your deck to be chosen by this card, as its negative Battlecry will not be activated.

Also you could put an opponent's minion such as Zombie Chow into play and destroy it to gain 5 Heath, or perhaps prevent an enemy minion's Battlecry from being activated, such as Sir Finley Mrrgglton.

This card is effective against decks which have no 1-cost minions. The downside may also be reduce if you have area of effect removal like Powershot that is fairly likely to remove the opponent's 1-cost minion anyway.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The Desert Camel is ridden by two minions - one from each hero's forces - which upon the camel's arrival on the battlefield "hop off" and spring into action.[2]

From Wowpedia:

Camels are a type of herbivore mammals native to Uldum. They were introduced in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.
