Strategy[edit | edit source]

Since this boss can heal back to full HP at no cost, it is not ideal to push for face damage at the start. Instead, focus on building up your side of the board, until you have sufficient damage to kill Lord Marrowgar in a single turn.

Lord Marrowgar's most dangerous cards are the Bone Spikes. They deal a massive amount of damage and have enough Health to have a good chance to survive until the next turn. Destroy or silence them as soon as possible, and maybe use Frozen Clone. His weapon, Bryn'troll, the Bone Arbiter, is very effective at removal, so having weapon removal cards like Acidic Swamp Ooze is also a good idea.

Priest is an easy class for this mission. They have access to Silence effects to pacify the Bone Spikes, can set up a one-turn-kill combo with Divine Spirit and Inner Fire, and steal Bone Spikes with Convert and Cabal Shadow Priest.

Boss completion[edit | edit source]

As the first boss of Lower Icecrown Citadel, defeating Lord Marrowgar unlocks the second boss, Deathbringer Saurfang.
