|Golden Messenger Raven||400||50|
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Messenger Raven is a solid option for any Mage deck that doesn't use many Spells. It not only has reasonably high stats for a minion with Discover, the Mage-only Discover restriction helps filter out weaker minion choices. As Messenger Raven is a beast, it can also synergize with any Beast-related cards.
Possible minions discovered[edit | edit source]
|Name / Desc||Rarity||Subtype||Class||Cost||Atk||HP||Description|
Freeze any character damaged by this minion. Don't summon a water elemental at a party. It'll dampen the mood.
Battlecry: Your next Hero Power this turn deals 2 more damage. A few hours later he DESTROYED the arena bathrooms.
|Magic Dart Frog||Common||Beast||Mage||2||1||3|
After you cast a spell, deal 1 damage to a random enemy minion. There's a powerful throat in this frog.
Whenever you cast a spell, gain +1 Attack. These wyrms feed on arcane energies, and while they are generally considered a nuisance rather than a real threat, you really shouldn't leave them alone with a bucket of mana.
Your spells cost (1) less. Apprentices are great for bossing around. "Conjure me some mana buns! And a coffee! Make that a mana coffee!"
Battlecry: Discover a Mage minion. You can make a collect CAW!
Spell Damage +2 INGREDIENTS: STAR-STUFF, BLUE #1, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS.
Whenever you cast a spell, summon a random 2-Cost minion. As birds of ill omen, these crows often summon Doomsayers.
Battlecry: If you control a Secret, deal 6 damage. "In West Cloudidelphia, born and raised; flinging lightning for the rest of my days."
Battlecry: If you played an Elemental last turn, deal 3 damage to all other minions. Arcane energy… finds a way.
Battlecry: Add a random Mage spell to your hand. His idol is the Green Hills of Stranglethorn, and he won't shut up about it.
After you play a Secret, deal 2 damage to all enemy minions. Ancient pandaren proverb: He who is without secrets lacks flak.
Battlecry: Your next spell this turn has Spell Damage +2. Casting with the stars.
|Spirit of the Dragonhawk||Rare||General||Mage||2||0||3|
Stealth for 1 turn.
Your Hero Power also targets adjacent minions. Dragonhawks aren’t known for their accuracy.
After you cast a spell, add a random Mage minion to your hand. Come for the magic show, stay for the sand castles.
After you cast a spell, deal 2 damage randomly split among all enemies. Flamewakers HATE being confused for Flamewalkers. They just wake up fire, they don’t walk on it. Walking on fire is CRAZY.
|Kirin Tor Mage||Rare||General||Mage||3||4||3|
Battlecry: The next Secret you play this turn costs (0). The Kirin Tor reside in the floating city of Dalaran. How do you make a Dalaran float? Two scoops of ice cream, one scoop of Dalaran.
Whenever your Hero Power kills a minion, draw a card. She prefers “Flammably Inclined.”
If you control a Secret at the end of your turn, gain +2/+2. The ethereals are wrapped in cloth to give form to their non-corporeal bodies. Also because it's nice and soft.
|Kirin Tor Tricaster||Rare||General||Mage||4||3||3|
Spell Damage +3
Your spells cost (1) more. The math checks out!
Battlecry: If you played an Elemental last turn, draw a card. Next step: Marshmallow elementals.
Whenever you draw a card, gain +1/+1. Experts worry that curios are a gateway to face-collecting.
|Naga Sand Witch||Rare||General||Mage||5||5||5|
Battlecry: Change the Cost of spells in your hand to (5). 5 mana footlong, anyone?
Battlecry: For each card in your hand, deal 1 damage to a random enemy. Some say the world will end in fire. Some say in ice. Why not BOTH?
Battlecry: For each spell you've cast this turn, add a random Mage spell to your hand. It'll put a good spin on your spells.
Battlecry: Discover a Secret. Put it into the battlefield. She sells all manner of keys: from A flat to G sharp.
Battlecry: Summon a random minion with Cost equal to your hand size. All signs point to Antonidas.
Battlecry: Discover a copy of a spell in your deck and cast it with random targets. A tortollan made it to the desert!
Whenever you draw a minion, add a copy of it to your hand. His worgen children call him Archmage AROO-OO-OO-OO-gal.
Your cards that summon minions summon twice as many. "What do you call two minions summoned at once? Twinions, haha! Wait... where are you going?"
After you play the right-most card in your hand, draw a card. She's Dr. Boom's right-hand mage.
|Reno the Relicologist||Legendary||General||Mage||6||4||6|
Battlecry: If your deck has no duplicates, deal 10 damage randomly split among all enemy minions. All his life, Reno Jackson was only a gatling wand away from becoming the greatest and most terrifying mage who ever existed.
Battlecry: Add a random Legendary minion from the past to your hand. Just a twist to the left, one quarter turn to the right and … oops! Well, we didn’t need that timeline anyway.
Whenever you cast a spell, put a 'Fireball' spell into your hand. Antonidas was the Grand Magus of the Kirin Tor, and Jaina's mentor. This was a big step up from being Grand Magus of Jelly Donuts.
|Jan'alai, the Dragonhawk||Legendary||Beast||Mage||7||4||4|
Battlecry: If your Hero Power dealt 8 damage this game, summon Ragnaros the Firelord. You mess with the Bird, you get the Firelord.
|Hex Lord Malacrass||Legendary||General||Mage||8||5||5|
Battlecry: Add a copy of your opening hand to your hand (except this card). Extremely awkward cousin of Hex Lord Malaclass.
Your first spell each turn costs (0).
Battlecry: Discover a spell. He was once the Aspect of Magic but gave it up to focus on cheap tricks.
