Strategy[edit | edit source]

As a card that is slightly understatted for its cost and compensates for this by adding stats to a future card, this card fits very well in mid-range and control decks, but is a poor choice for aggro decks.

Not being able to control which card the battlecry lands on is a drawback. Ideally, you want to buff cards like Rat Pack or Dispatch Kodo, and not your Doomsayer.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The Grimestreet Smuggler's diminutive gun is called the "Derpinger". The barrels of the gun itself are easily overlooked since they are dwarfed by the substantial scope, itself surmounted by a simple gun sight, to make sure "no shots are being missed". Despite its size, the Derpinger "packs a hell of a punch".[1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A tauren very similar in appearance to the Grimestreet Smuggler appears in Forest for the Weary and Freedom, two of the web comics released prior to the launch of Knights of the Frozen Throne. In the former comic, when asked by the Pompous Thespian what compels her to seek the Frozen Throne, the tauren replies "The usual. Betrayal. Violence. Turf war with rival smugglers" and that she needs an edge to protect what's hers. In response, the storyteller tells a tale about Deathstalker Rexxar and Malfurion Stormrage, both of which went too far trying to protect their homes. However, at the end of the tale, the tauren starts threatening the thespian in the belief that he's trying to scare her away from the Frozen Throne and wants to have the "sharkbear" from the story all to himself.
