Strategy[edit | edit source]

Germination is similar to Molten Reflection but giving it Taunt

Germination works really well with minions with powerful effects such as Emperor Thaurissan (discount your hand by two), Malygos (10 spell damage), Highkeeper Ra (40 damage to all enemies), Desert Obelisk (help fufill the conditions and provide another 5 damage).

It can also be used on high stat minions to give its replica Taunt for face protection.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The card art depicts sporelings germinated by a similar biological process called cell division.

From Wowpedia:

Sporelings are a mostly peaceful race of diminutive mushroom-men native to Outland, formerly Draenor. Their capital, Sporeggar, is located in the southern bogs of Zangarmarsh.
While fearful of travelers (especially those significantly larger than them), the sporelings are quick to welcome anyone to help them. They are beset by many enemies, including the fungal giants, spore walkers, marsh beasts and more recently the naga, leading them to ask for aid from passing adventurers.
