Notes[edit | edit source]
- Like Shifter Zerus, the card text reads "each turn", but the transform effect actually only takes place at the start of the controlling player's turn.
- This card may transform into any collectible weapon, but not uncollectible ones. It may turn into Molten Blade itself, although this will not produce any additional effect; it will simply continue shifting normally on the next turn.
- This effect triggers at the start of your turn, and retains its ability after transforming, indicated by an accompanying visual effect.
- The transformation includes stats, abilities, mana cost, and class of the card.
- If the card is played, put into play by another effect, or copied, the resulting card will be the transformed one, without Molten Blade's ability.
- This weapon will keep enchantments granted to cards in the hand such as those from Hobart Grapplehammer or Grimestreet Pawnbroker's Battlecry.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
The random and unpredictable nature of Molten Blade makes this card a poor pick in any serious constructed deck. However, that same random and unpredictable nature makes Molten Blade a good choice when building "fun" decks.
A Molten Blade transformed into Twig of the World Tree can be a strong play if the deck has other weapons with which to replace it, triggering its Deathrattle and gaining 10 Mana Crystals as early as turn 5.
