Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The discovered minion is summoned onto the board; it is not added to your hand. It does not count as being played from the hand.
Example: If Free From Amber discovers Deathwing, it will be summoned on the board, but its Battlecry will not activate, nor will the opponent's Mirror Entity.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This card can be seen as a somewhat more reliable version of Forbidden Shaping. While its mana cost isn't as flexible, it's less volatile and being able to choose which minion to discover means you can avoid awful results like Tortollan Primalist or C'Thun. Another advantage is that when it discovers a 9 or 10-mana minion, it will give more value for its cost.

One particular minion to look out for when discovered is Charged Devilsaur. Because its attack restriction is tied to its Battlecry, it can freely attack the enemy hero on the same turn.

Combos well with Medivh, the Guardian, which lets you bring out 16 to 18 mana worth of minions in a single turn, something Forbidden Shaping can't do. In Wild, Summoning Stone can achieve the same effect, not to mention Ragnaros the Firelord can be discovered in Wild format.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

This card's flavor text is a reference to the Jurassic Park film, specifically the scene where it is explained how the "dino DNA" was recovered.[1]
