Strategy[edit | edit source]
The Idol of Y'Shaarj summons a 10/10 copy of a random minion from your deck, to the board. Much similar to the case of Shadow Essence, the effectiveness does vary accordingly to the minion summoned. While cheaper minions with valuable effects (such as Sethekk Veilweaver or Reliquary of Souls) do benefit from having a 10/10 body, the ideal case would be that a copy of higher-costing minions is summoned (eg. Convincing Infiltrator, Devout Pupil, Reliquary Prime). And of course, there is poor Battlecry synergy from this spell.
The extra copy of a said summoned minion from this spell increases the odds of summoning it again via Resurrection effect cards (eg. Psychopomp, Lesser Diamond Spellstone, Mass Resurrection, etc.) But, be warned: the 10/10 minion can be subjected to many forms of Hard removal (Shadow Word: Death, Assassinate, Big Game Hunter's Battlecry, etc.) and Transform effects (Polymorph, Hex, Tinkmaster Overspark's Battlecry, etc.)
