Strategy[edit]

Due to its low stats, the Infested Tauren should be played for synergy with other cards; it curves well in a deck that runs N'Zoth, the Corruptor, used as a decent mid-game play. When brought back onto the board via N'Zoth, the Taunt immediately helps protect other summoned minions, while the Deathrattle acts as insurance in the case of a board clear.

Quotes[edit]

Summon
For The Swarm.
Attack
Gladly.

Lore[edit]

This tauren has clearly been infested by the influence of the Old Gods, granting it some slimy new powers. Based on its stats and Taunt, it appears to be a corrupted version of Tauren Warrior.

Trivia[edit]

  • This card is a reference to the Infested Terranunit from the Starcraft series. It even shares two of the unit's lines upon being summoned and commanded.
