Strategy[edit | edit source]

Because of its ability, Mech-Bear-Cat is a valuable minion to place health buffs like Mark of the Wild or Mark of Nature. Armor Plating is a perfect Spare Part that can be generated by the ability.

If Mech-Bear-Cat is getting low on health, healing can be used to continue to take advantage of its ability. Crazed Alchemist or more likely the Spare Part, Reversing Switch can also be used to swap its substantial 7 Attack into Health.

Minions that inflict direct damage like Elven Archer, minions that inflict AoE damage like Wild Pyromancer, and minions that inflict random damage like Mad Bomber and Madder Bomber can be useful to get more spare parts from this minion.

This minion is a mech and as such can be a strong mid- or late-game drop in mech decks. You can lower the cost with Mechwarper and buff it with Clockwork Knight.

The extra cards in the form of Spare Parts can help lower the cost of Mountain Giant.

Its ability lets it potentially generate many more Spare Parts than other sources. The high number of cheap spells can allow combos with spell-related cards like Gadgetzan Auctioneer, Mana Addict, or Gazlowe.

In arena it can be strong but you may find it lacks in durability. However, it will go up in value with the above combos and generation of extra cards.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Mech-Bear-Cat is a reference to 'man-bear-pig' from South Park.[1]
