Lore[edit | edit source]

Ixlid, Fungal Lord is unique to Hearthstone.[1] Unlike tar and bog monsters such Loatheb or Fen Creeper, which are physical creatures or magical entities, Ixlid is an ancient earth elemental spirit animating some of the rot and decay in the swampier parts of the catacombs.[2]

In a tale told by a dwarven bard, while adventuring in the catacombs, Marin the Fox was transported by an underground river into the edge of a cavern blooming with huge, glowing mushrooms. Marin noted that the Fungal Lord Ixlid was rumored to frequent such places, which he felt was an excellent reason to avoid them.[3]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Its Deadly Spore not only has Poisonous, but it can instantly kill your hero the moment it makes contact. Mulligan for an aggressive curve so that you can have minions available to pick it off each time. If you're a Mage, you can afford to go for a less aggressive mulligan as your Hero Power can constantly kill the 1/1 Deadly Spore. Naturally, attacking into it with weapons or temporary attack to your hero will also cause an instant loss.

Ixlid only has 20 health, so it shouldn't be very hard to defeat. If you have access to temporary control effects like Potion of Madness or Shadow Madness, you can take control of the Deadly Spore and instantly kill Ixlid with it. If you possess Amulet of Domination or Magic Mirror, not only will you get the Deadly Spore to instantly kill Ixlid with, the Deadly Spore will also be added to your Dungeon Deck, which can be used to instantly kill the rest of the bosses if you draw it early.
