Notes[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Please add any available information to this section.

In Story, this is just a matter of stabilizing well enough until you can consistently get Treasures. If you do, choose the appropriate Treasure, like Board clears or minion buffs. Don't choose Dr. Boom's Boombox unless well ahead, as Annihilation will just destroy them all and Galakrond can usually shrug off the ensuing damage. Stone Fox Statue can get you free strong minions too, so you can take it if you think there is a decent probability of getting one.

If you have nothing in particular to do, like when the board is empty but no minion summoning choices are offered, you can choose Untold Splendor to save it for later.

In Heroic mode, Chaos Gazer can do pretty well as Galakrond will usually discard that card, or lose tempo. Anti-dragon tech cards are strongly recommended as Galakrond uses a lot of dragons.

Before encounter

Oh, Galakrond! It is just you and me now. *Sniff* I know what I must do.


Rafaam, Prime Evil
Where the others have failed, I, Rafaam, will defeat you.

Turn 2

Rafaam, Prime Evil
You are too dangerous, Galakrond. I, Rafaam, must destroy you!

Turn 3

I am the beginning. I am the ur-dragon. You are nothing.
Rafaam, Prime Evil

Turn 4

Rafaam, Prime Evil
Oh, Galakrond! I cry. Or I would, if I had liquids in my body.

Galakrond at 100 health left

Rafaam, Prime Evil
It hurts me to hurt you! Mostly it hurts you, though.

Player's Hero Power

Rafaam, Prime Evil
It is a good thing I spent all year stealing these things!
It is easy to solo a raid boss if you have the right gear.
I remember stealing these! Good times.
Ahhh, just what I was looking for.
It is good to be an arch-thief!

I am unbreakable! I am unstoppable!

Hero Power

To oblivion.
None will remain.

Emote Response

Your role in this is over, ethereal.
Your screams delight me. (Heroic mode)


I am the Progenitor. The beginning. The one.
My rebirth begins the cycle of the world anew.
You, too are the beginning. The "Appetizer." The "Snack."

Turn 3

I am the beginning. I am the ur-dragon. You are nothing.



Looming Presence

Your attempts at victory will be in vain!

Thanks You will always be my greatest creation.
Well Played Together we were magnificent!
Greetings Hello, Galakrond! And now… goodbye.
Wow What a pair we make, Galakrond!
Oops We have both made mistakes, my friend.
Threaten Goodbye, you big beautiful scion of destruction.
Attack Destroy!
Concede Back to the scheming-board!
Death But… but…
Thinking [1] Hmmm…
Thinking [2] Must… destroy…
Thinking [3] Chaos…? Yes, chaos…
Running out of time I must make my move!
Almost out of cards I am low on cards.
Out of cards That's it! I am out!
Error: Generic I cannot do that.
