Maexxna is a tier 6 minion in Battlegrounds game mode.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Maexxna is the only minion in Battlegrounds that starts with Poisonous, allowing her to kill any one minion on the opponent's board. This card can be extremely valuable if your upcoming opponent is known to have a powerful minion you can't easily trade against, such as an Annihilan Battlemaster, and you don't have easy access to any other Poisonous effects. Maexxna's high tier makes it hard to stack buffs on her, and therefore she is extremely unlikely to attack a minion and survive, so positioning is crucial to make her one attack count. Maexxna should generally not be placed at the very left of the board since players will almost always have a large Taunt with Divine Shield, which will waste Maexxna's attack, so use another minion to clear the Divine Shield before Maexxna goes in.

Maexxna can also serve as a counter to Zapp Slywick, as she has low Attack and just enough health to survive an attack from Zapp.
