Lackey
Lackeys are 1-Cost minions with Battlecries.
What is a villain without an army of disposable henchcreatures? As a promising villain in training you will have access to lackeys, 1/1 minions with devious battlecries.[1]

Lackeys are uncollectible minion cards generated by certain cards in the Year of the Dragon. They are mostly restricted to Priest, Rogue, Shaman, Warlock, and Warrior.

Notes[edit]

  • All Lackey are 1/1 minions that cost 1 mana with powerful Battlecries.
  • Generation of Lackeys is always random. Thus if multiple Lackeys are generated at once, it is possible that they will be duplicates.
  • All Invoke cards also generate a Lackey when used by Rogue.
  • Kabal Lackey and Possessed Lackey are not Lackeys and will not trigger Lackey-relate effects. Nor is Grand Lackey Erkh, despite its Lackey-related ability, itself a Lackey either.

Lore[edit]

Each of the Lackeys introduced in Rise of Shadows are based on the members of the League of E.V.I.L,, and have mechanics that hearken back to their masters or the set they originated in.

Lackey-generating cards creating random Lackeys represents the League's united goals, with them all sharing lackeys between each other.
