Strategy[edit | edit source]

Since this card does not reduce the cost of your Hero Power by 1, but specifically sets the cost to 1 mana, additional Maiden of the Lake cards will have no increased effect. They can both keep the cost at 1 while alive; in other words, the cost will simply remain at 1 until the last maiden is eliminated.

Maiden of the Lake is a direct counter to Saboteur, who causes the enemy Hero Power cost 5 more the next turn. If it's the latest modifier Maiden's effect will take precedence, so playing Maiden of the Lake afterwards will nullify the increased cost and set it back to 1.

This card has synergy with minions with Inspire effects as it allows you to fit your Hero Power in a smaller mana pool, allowing for more constant repetition of the hero power. This does require the Maiden to avoid enemy 4-6 damage threats, which is hard to accomplish due to its low attack making for easy trades with 3 health minions, and there are often better 4-cost cards with more balanced stats. On the upside, with Inspire cards in hand while the Maiden is still on the board, there is more potential for an immediate Inspire following the ability coming into play.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Summon
I am freed from the curse.
Attack
Take this blade!

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Maiden of Ashwood Lake can be found on the edges of Ashwood Lake in Grizzly Hills as part of the Argent Tournament. Players on the quest A Blade Fit For A Champion" must use the Warts-B-Gone Lip Balm before blowing a /kiss to the Lake Frog critters around the lake. Blowing a kiss to the "right" frog (it's random) will spawn the Maiden, who players can then talk to to receive the Ashwood Brand.
