Strategy[edit | edit source]

This card is very understatted and its Deathrattle, while tricky to utilize, does have potential for high value returns. The most straightforward way to increase its value is to buff its Attack, which makes it more likely to return stronger minions. Ideally, high-cost, low-Attack minions with end-of-turn or Deathrattle effects like Ysera are excellent pulls, but the downside to this strategy is that it also increases the variance of returned minions, making it less reliable.

Alternatively, this card can be used in a deck containing a few 0-Attack minions to reliably summon them from your deck. Good minions to use for this strategy include Doomsayer, Devilsaur Egg, Validated Doomsayer, and Summoning Portal.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

One of the strangest and most dire tools utilized by the Scourge is the dreaded meat wagon. This rickety contraption is used to collect and store recently slain corpses from the field of battle. At any time, corpses can be pulled from the meat wagon and raised into undead warriors. When upgraded, the meat wagon can also fling diseased corpses at enemy units with its crude catapult device. An invaluable support vehicle for the Scourge, the meat wagon strikes fear and woe into the hearts of even the most resolute defenders.
