Strategy[edit | edit source]

Farraki Battleaxe is a new card to add to Paladin's arsenal of "handbuff" effects, which use cards such as Glowstone Technician to amplify the power of other cards such as Paragon of Light. You could choose to use all of its Attack without Overkill, for a respectable 9 damage in total, or "waste" some damage in exchange for buffing minions in your hand.

You should be careful when combining it with Sword of Justice. It is well adviside to use the Axe first, but sometimes, you will not be able to use its Overkill.

Handbuffs are specially strong with Adapt cards.

Be sure to play out minions which you don't want to buff before attacking, to increase your chances of buffing a more desirable target.

Works well with Drygulch Jailor and a Silverhand focused deck.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

The Farraki tribe or the Sandfury tribe (sometimes spelled Sand Fury), originally known as the Razorbranch tribe, is a tribe of sand trolls, located in the deserts of Southern Kalimdor.
Prior to the War of the Ancients, the Razorbranch tribe was originally part of the Gurubashi empire, living on the fringes of the empire. The Sundering shattered the jungle trolls' territory and isolated the Razorbranch, leaving them stranded in the middle of what swiftly became the desert of Tanaris. The relentless desert sun of Tanaris beat down on the trolls, who gradually adapted to their harsh new environment, becoming sand trolls, now known as the Sandfury tribe. Today they bear only a rough resemblance to the jungle trolls from whom they are descended.
The capital of the Sandfury is the troll city of Zul'Farrak, but they have few other remaining settlements. Tanaris has long since reclaimed them, leaving it dotted with buried ruins. Since the Sundering, the sand trolls have been forced to give up the majority of Tanaris to outsiders, and are thus fierce to defend what remains of their lands.
