Strategy[edit | edit source]

Ghastcoiler is a strong source of in-battle reinforcements in the late game, creating two additional Deathrattle minions to fight. As Battlegrounds includes a number of Deathrattle minions that summon more minions in turn, this can result in a surprisingly large amount of extra damage, however Ghastcoiler is also reliant on RNG as Deathrattle minions can range from the weak Mecharoo to the powerful Sneed's Old Shredder. As such, Ghastcoiler can be a decent option for filling out the rotating Battlecry slot of most compositions in the late game.

Place this minion near the right of your board so that it will have room to spawn minions. Baron Rivendare gives you twice the minions from Ghastcoiler's Deathrattle, not only putting a substantial amount of stats on the board but also potentially giving a lot of extra face damage if it dies at the end of the round.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Ghastcoiler is the only Battlegrounds minion who debuted in a single-player campaign (Rumble Run), while the other minions are either collectible cards or exclusive to the Battlegrounds mode.
