Strategy[edit | edit source]
Lady Vashj is a decent minion, giving the player a small Spell Damage buff alongside a good 4/3 statline. However, her true value comes in her Prime form, which draws 3 spells and reduces their cost. This effect is quite versatile thanks to Shaman's wide array of spells, and there are many uses to it. You could use Vashj Prime to have access to cheaper removal spells like Hex or Plague of Murlocs, or cast stronger and cheaper Lightning Storms, Hagatha's Schemes, or Lightning Bolts.
It can be difficult to make good use of the Prime's spell damage due to its abysmal 5/4 statline, so it's best to include spells you can cast on the turn she comes into play. Alternatively, Control Shaman can use the minion for the cost reduction and draw effect as a value play, ignoring the Spell Damage entirely.

Lore[edit | edit source]
- Lady Vashj (pronounced /vɒʒ/ — somewhere between Vash and Vosh) was born in the city of Vashj'ir, where her mother, Lestharia Vashj, was the high leader and matron. She somehow left her homeland, and came to the city of Zin-Azshari, capital of the night elves, sometime before the War of the Ancients. Once chief among Queen Azshara's handmaidens, Vashj became one of the serpentine naga when Azshara and her followers were sent to the bottom of the sea during the Great Sundering.
- Ten thousand years later, Vashj answered Illidan Stormrage's call and followed him first to Lordaeron, where she met up with Kael'thas Sunstrider and rallied his blood elves to Illidan's cause, and then to Outland when Illidan deposed Magtheridon as lord of the shattered world. As the leader of Illidan's naga, Vashj and her followers set up a shop in Coilfang Reservoir in Zangarmarsh, where the naga began to pump the lakes into their underground lair. During the invasion of Outland, adventurers invaded the Serpentshrine Cavern where Vashj made her lair and slew the Coilfang matron, her dying breath an apology to her master.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The first time Lady Vashj appeared in Hearthstone was as a card reveal from the r/CustomHearthstone subreddit for Whispers of the Old Gods, where she was a 7-mana 4/4 legendary neutral minion with the card text "Windfury. This minion can only take 1 damage at a time." While the original card was an April Fools joke, Vashj would make an official appearance four years later.
