Known bugs[edit | edit source]
- Diseased Vulture will summon a minion after you play a minion using your Health instead of Mana (i.e. Seadevil Stinger) even if it's the 7th minion in play, resulting in a board with 8 minions.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Diseased Vulture is a significant tempo generator when its effect goes off. It can most easily be activated with Life Tap and other self-damaging cards like Flame Imp and Hellfire, but it works especially well with Neferset Thrasher, which you can follow up on curve.
Lore[edit | edit source]
Diseased Vultures are vultures found flying around the Cradle of the Ancients in Uldum. Upon killing one of the birds, players are automatically given the quest Dirty Birds, in which they're tasked with ridding the cradle of the "nasty vultures" to make it a "somewhat less despicable place to travel through".
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Diseased Vulture's flavor text is a reference to the Dead Parrot sketch from Monty Python's Flying Circus.
