Majestic. Ethereal. Still pretty down in the dumps, though.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Gloom Stag 400 100
Golden Gloom Stag 1600 400

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Gloom Stag can become a very powerful 4/8 Taunt minion for 5 mana, outstripping cards such as Nesting Roc and Fen Creeper for stats for a much harder limiting factor.

As an alternative, this can be run in a deck with Master Oakheart as one of the few useful 2-Attack minions available to Druid on board, and to thin your deck a bit more. Although it will lose the buff, you could also consider running this in a Taunt Druid deck using cards such as Witching Hour to resummon it, as the Taunt is not part of the conditional battlecry. In Wild, you can also play synergistic cards such as Druid of the Fang, Virmen Sensei and Knight of the Wild.
