Strategy[edit | edit source]

Erekem runs a shaman draw deck. His hero power will be the most problematic. You will need fast board control and removal to stand a chance.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Erekem is an arakkoa mini-boss located in the Violet Hold. His escape comes with two adds.
The Violet Hold's inmates include the most notorious of Outland's criminals, and Erekem is no exception. The Kirin Tor thwarted his plot to assassinate the Council of Six, but now the blue dragons have recruited this insidious arakkoa to achieve a more ambitious feat: wiping out every mage in Dalaran.
