Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Healing undamaged characters will not activate this minion's effect; Health must be restored.
  • This card will not be included in Arena picks (along with C'Thun and all other related cards).[1] However, it may still appear in Arena matches through random effects.[2]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

With decent stats for its cost, this minion can grant multiple buffs to C'Thun if not checked by the opponent, and its reasonably beefy 3/6 will allow it to trade into minions and survive. Works especially well with any source of multi target healing, as the effect triggers per character, including Holy Nova and Circle of Healing. Ideally, play this minion in the same turn when you can pull off a healing effect, as this minion will likely pose a significant target for your opponent's removal.

Note that this minion's effect triggers regardless of which player triggers a healing effect, including your opponent's Truesilver Champion, Healing Totem, etc.

Quotes[edit | edit source]
