Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This spell's effect will activate if it is played, or discarded from the hand. It will not activate if directly removed from the game through effects such Fel Reaver or Tracking, or attempting to draw the card with a full hand.[1][2]
  • If Fist of Jaraxxus is countered by Counterspell, nothing will happen.[3]
  • If you play Deathwing with Fist of Jaraxxus in your hand, the Fist will only be able to hit the enemy hero.[4] This is because random damage effects ignore pending destroy minions, even though they are still in play.
  • Even when triggered by being discarded, Fist of Jaraxxus is affected by Spell Damage and Prophet Velen bonuses.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

On its own, this card is a more expensive Shadow Bolt that may also target the enemy hero, but the target is chosen at random. Its strength lies in synergy with discard effect of some warlock cards.

You can somewhat reliably discard Fist of Jaraxxus using semi-targeted discard effects, such as Expired Merchant or Nightshade Matron. This works best in tandem with Hand of Gul'dan to refuel your hand while discarding.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Lord Jaraxxus is an eredar lord of the Burning Legion and the second encounter of the Trial of the Crusader raid instance. Lord Jaraxxus is accidentally summoned by Grand Warlock Wilfred Fizzlebang when the gnome attempts to summon a doomguard for the next challenge. Jaraxxus kills Fizzlebang for his efforts.
