Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Grave Rune's applied Deathrattle effect summons new copies of the target minion, rather than a strict copy of the target minion with current enchantments.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

A card ideal for Deathrattle Priest, Grave Rune allows a minion to summon two copies of itself as a Deathrattle, akin to Carnivorous Cube. However, in exchange for costing 1 less mana than Carnivorous Cube, the minion is otherwise unaltered until it dies. Grave Rune is also useful for completing the priest class' Quests: it can make progress with Awaken the Makers if you cast Grave Rune on a Deathrattle minion (also allowing its Deathrattle to trigger thrice) and Activate the Obelisk can be achieved by casting Grave Rune on a Lifesteal minion or a minion with a healing Deathrattle such as Mistress of Mixtures or Khartut Defender.
