Strategy[edit | edit source]

Due to its high Attack but low Health, Ice Rager is a good target for warlock spell Shadowflame. It can also be immediately buffed with cards such as Shattered Sun Cleric or Defender of Argus to increase its Health, making it more difficult to destroy.

For Druids, Druid of the Flame seems strictly superior as it becomes a Beast, and can be become either a 5/2 or a 2/5 (or sometimes a 5/5) but, Ice Rager is an elemental so it could possibly be better in certain situations with cards like Servant of Kalimos, in which you also are able to discover an elemental. If you are running a wild druid deck that has some elementals, Ice Rager is a card to consider.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Much like how Hearthstone's version of the Magma Rager depicts a bound fire elemental, the Ice Rager appears to be a type of bound water elemental. However, Ice Ragers specifically are original to Hearthstone.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The second Rager to be added to the game, Ice Rager is a strictly better version of Magma Rager, as it has one more Health. However, it is also far less easily obtained: as a Basic card every player automatically has Magma Rager in their collection, whereas Ice Rager must be opened from a pack or crafted. As a result, it represents an earned upgrade to Magma Rager, although given the poorness of the original card the upgraded version is still less than outstanding.
