How to get[edit | edit source]
Expired Merchant can be obtained through Saviors of Uldum card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward. Regular Expired Merchant can also be obtained through the Highest Rank Bonus chest at the end of a Ranked season by reaching Rank 5 in Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum (rewards are added cumulatively the higher you rank).

Strategy[edit | edit source]
Expired Merchant is a delayed value generator, comparable to Loot Hoarder, but creating an extra copy of one of your cards instead of card draw. An extra copy of high-power cards Twisting Nether, Siphon Soul, or Lord Godfrey can prove useful is more suitable for control decks for that reason. It does, however, pose a potential risk against opponents with access to silence,transformation, or any sort of effect that removes it from board without destroying it like Sap and Psychic Scream. In this case, it may be better to kill the Expired Merchant quickly with something like Mortal Coil to guarantee its Deathrattle goes off.
Because the discard effect is targeted, you can use this to discard certain discard synergy cards for your advantage while creating value off of them. For example, discarding Soulwarden will let it continuously generate itself, discard High Priestess Jeklik to create four copies of her, or Cruel Dinomancer in Wild so that it always resummons itself.
