Note[edit | edit source]
- This minion effectively grants the forgetful effect to all minions. Each Mogor the Ogre effectively grants one 'stack' of the effect to each minion, even if they already have the effect. Minions with multiple stacks of the effect, such as a Dunemaul Shaman with a Mogor the Ogre on the board, will check once for each application. For example, if a Dunemaul Shaman attacks while Mogor the Ogre is in play, he will first check to see if he attacks his intended target, and if not, will select a new target; then check a second time to see if he will attack his current target at that point. It is possible for targets to switch to an unintended target with the first forgetful effect, then switch back to the original target with the second.
- Note that while the 'stacks' model is easier to understand, despite the card's wording Mogor actually works as a triggered effect which is activated by any minion attacking. The chance is not possessed by the minions, but rather Mogor if activated has a chance to alter the minion's target for them, in a manner similar to Misdirection.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
While Mogor lets your other minions bypass Taunt and Stealth, his most valuable quality is breaking the focus of enemy minions, making it difficult to concentrate damage on one target and making any attack a potential suicide into Mogor. He is best with sturdy minions that gradually create advantage such as Imp Master or Nat Pagle.

Lore[edit | edit source]
- Mogor the Ogre is a notorious ogre mage and former leader of the Laughing Skull clan. During the events following the Second War, Mogor and his clan betrayed Ner'zhul's Horde by aiding the Alliance Expedition in closing the Draenic side of the Dark Portal. Sometime thereafter, Mogor seemingly abandoned the Laughing Skull and instead became the champion of the Warmaul clan, and now serves as the final encounter of the Ring of Blood in Nagrand.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Crown of the Heavens" series, for the card Rage of the Elements.
- Mogor is also depicted in the art for Ogre Magi, a card which was part of the game's original set, long before Mogor himself was added.
- Despite his flavor text, Mogor had no role in reopening the Dark Portal. In Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal, Ner'zhul's Horde defeated Mogor to gain control of his death knights. In the World of Warcraft: Beyond the Dark Portal novel, Mogor does not appear at all.
