Ragnaros interviews hundreds of Fire Elementals for the position of "Destroyer" but very few have what it takes.
How to get
|Golden Fireguard Destroyer||400||50|
Fireguard Destroyer is a variable card with a strong RNG component. At its minimum, it is a 4/6 for 4 mana + 1 Overload, which is barely efficient; but at its best, it is a 7/6 for 4 + 1, which is extremely efficient. Overall, Fireguard Destroyer is actually mana efficient (including the Overload) 75% of the time (anything but the minimum 1 Attack boost). However, the maximum 4 Attack boost makes it susceptible to Big Game Hunter. A good Turn 4 follow-up to Unbound Elemental. While Flamewreathed Faceless has the same cost but higher stats, it overloads one less Mana Crystal compared to it.
- The Firelord calls.
- All will burn.
- This card's flavor text humorously describes Ragnaros the Firelord interviewing Fire Elementals to find those worthy of becoming Fireguard Destroyers. This is particularly ironic considering the Destroyers are typically weaker than the Fire Elementals, and lack their powerful Battlecry.
