Marsh Hydra is an epic druid minion card, from the Ashes of Outland set.

How to get[edit]

Marsh Hydra can be obtained through Ashes of Outland card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward. Regular Marsh Hydra can also be obtained through the Highest Rank Bonus chest at the end of a Ranked season.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Marsh Hydra 400 100
Golden Marsh Hydra 1600 400

Strategy[edit]

In addition to being a strong late-game option for slower Druid decks, Marsh Hydra has great synergy with Shan'do Wildclaw, not only receiving a +1/+1 buff from her, but also potentially creating a 10-mana combo of playing Marsh Hydra and then Shan'do Wildclaw to summon two Marsh Hydras at once, potentially earning you two 8-Cost minions in a single turn.

Lore[edit]

From Wowpedia:

Hydras are three-headed amphibious beasts native to both Azeroth and Outland. Historians have long disagreed about whether the immense hydras of Azeroth and Outland share a common ancestor. What is clear, however, is that these ruthless creatures have existed on both realms since ancient times. Each head appears to display a level of independent behavior. The forms of hydras vary somewhat between the two worlds.

This particular Zangarmarsh hydra has apparently been outfitted with armor by the Rusted Legion.
