Lackey cards[edit]

EVIL Genius' Battlecry generates two of the following cards at random.

Draconic Lackey(127270).png
Ethereal Lackey(91031).png
Faceless Lackey(91021).png
Goblin Lackey(91029).png
Kobold Lackey(91022).png
Titanic Lackey(90779).png
Witchy Lackey(91023).png


EVIL Genius effectively draws two cards and has decent stats for its cost, but this comes at the cost of having to sacrifice a friendly minion. This drawback can however be exploited by activating a beneficial Deathrattle effect, such as Scarab Egg, or by removing a minion with a detrimental effect, such as one that has had Blessing of Wisdom cast on it.
