Strategy[edit | edit source]

A sidegraded version of Jeweled Scarab that costs 1 more but gains +1/+1 and Discovers a 1 cost higher card. This gives you a reasonable source of card advantage. Playing Golden Scarab on turn 3 allows you to be able to play your discovered card on curve. Golden Scarab should be in your mulligan hand as you are always guaranteed to have a turn 3 into turn 4 play.

In arena, it may be understatted but its main value is through card generation, which is more limited.
