Strategy[edit | edit source]

Mutate is best used with high-costed and low-statted minions, such as Giggling Inventor and Swampqueen Hagatha. Mutate is effectively a low-power version of Evolve or Unstable Evolution, where it doesn't have the board-wide effect of Evolve or the extra value of Unstable Evolution, for the advantage of being free. It's more advantageous when you want to target specific minions without Evolving other minions, but it can be played on curve and without being as wasteful as Unstable Evolution.

Being a free spell, Mutate can also function in a deck based on Spirit of the Frog or Gadgetzan Auctioneer.
