Battlecry: If your deck has no duplicates, summon King Krush.
Brann's new dino-taming hobby is going well—his pet can already make him sit, stand, and roll over!

Notes[edit | edit source]
- The King Krush summoned by Dinotamer Brann is technically a different card than the classic minion, though this has no gameplay significance.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Brann's Battlecry is very powerful on turn 7, summoning an 8/8 Beast with Charge for 2 Mana less. This is so powerful that, in fact, it makes the "no duplicates" restriction easy to overlook.
Dinotamer Brann has excellent synergy with his original counterpart, allowing him to summon two King Krushes and deal 16 damage to the opponent's face. He can also be accompanied by the Classic King Krush, circumventing Krush's one-legendary limit in a deck (though the classic Krush will cost 2 mana more). Be careful about using Dire Frenzy before playing Brann, as it will shuffle three duplicates which will disrupt his Battlecry.
He is a valuable asset in Face Hunter and Highlander Hunter decks, and is best used as a finisher.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Brann's design changed several times throughout the development of Saviors of Uldum, as the team looked for ways to solve the problem of how to create an aggressive deck with no duplicate cards. One of the earlier designs involved Brann instantly halving the opponent's Health, but this effect ended up feeling odd and inconsistent in an aggressive deck as it could do massive damage if Brann was drawn early on but had little impact in the late game. This was followed by the idea of summoning King Krush, but as the developers were worried about the power of the Charge effect, they instead started experimenting with having Brann summon two 5/5 devilsaurs with Rush. This design got so far into the process that the two devilsaurs even had their own names: Duke and Duchess. In the end, however, the team gravitated back toward the King Krush version since it felt much more satisfying and because they wanted a splashy and extreme effect for Brann's Battlecry.
