Strategy[edit | edit source]

This minion has identical stats to Magma Rager, but can make up for that card's weakness by gaining a defensive adaptation. Crackling Shield, Rocky Carapace, and Shrouding Mist are all strong choices. Flaming Claws and Poison Spit are weak choices, as this minion's strength is already its killing power.

This card is great in a Jungle Giants deck, since it helps complete the quest and will be easy to activate. It fits well in a deck with Tortollan Forager, whose Battlecry will meet the conditions of Elder Longneck's Battlecry immediately afterward.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

This is the first minion with an "if you're holding" condition that isn't based on holding a Dragon.
