Strategy[edit | edit source]

Lord Barov is effectively a 3-mana Equality with the equivalent of a 2-mana minion attached to it. It can be used with small Area of effect spells like Consecration or Whirlwind to clear the opponent's board. He can also be used to set up good trades. In less dire situations, Barov is a decent tempo play that will threaten to destroy your opponent's minions with his own effect on the following turn. Barov works well in both midrange and control decks, although he has anti-synergy with mana-cheating cards like Commencement since he loses his Battlecry.

Paladins can use the Deathrattle left behind by Barov to clear the opponent's board a second time with Equality or Libram of Justice.

Cards such as Animated Broomstick, Sword and Board, and Hammer of Wrath can be used to destroy Lord Barov and clear the board immediately after playing him.

From Wowpedia:

Lord Alexei Barov was the lord of Caer Darrow, Brill, Tarren Mill and Southshore. He was the father of Alexi, Weldon, and Jandice Barov and husband of Lady Illucia Barov.

Prior to Mists of Pandaria, he was an agent of the Scourge found in Scholomance. In Mists of Pandaria, he appears in the form of the Talking Skull, who asks adventurers to kill Darkmaster Gandling and cleanse the darkness that has taken hold of Scholomance. He reveals his true form upon Gandling's demise.
