He just wants people to see his vacation photos.
How to get[edit | edit source]
Kidnapper can be obtained through Classic card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward. Regular Kidnapper can also be obtained through the Highest Rank Bonus chest at the end of a Ranked season, or as a first-time reward for first time reaching Platinum 10 or Diamond 10 in Ranked mode.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Kidnapper's combo grants the ability to return a minion to its owner hand, similar to that of the popular rogue spell Sap, but with the added value of returning any minion (as opposed to only enemy minions).
However, Kidnapper's high cost makes this combo difficult. It was likely designed as a late game threat removal to finish a game by returning an enemy minion with taunt. But with its rarity, high mana cost and mediocre minion stats, it sees very little use in decks, outside of the Arena.
Quotes[edit | edit source]
