Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This spell has two steps:
    • First, it damages its target, queuing and resolving triggers;
    • Then, if comboed, at the end of the turn (just before the opponent's Start of Turn Phase) it is returned to the hand.[1] Notice that this is a true return effect, not a spell-generation effect: at the end of turn the card is moved out of the graveyard and into the hand.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

As a damage spell, Headcrack benefits greatly from Spell Damage.

Strictly speaking, its primary effect is a weak, costly alternative to most other classes' arsenal, such as Arcane Shot, Frostbolt, Mind Blast or Lightning Bolt. Its combo, however, sets it apart from the rest and opens up some very unique options:
