Strategy[edit | edit source]
Necrotic Geist has a very useful effect for decks that focus on low cost minions, because having a lot of minions that die easily allows it to summon a lot of 2/2 Ghouls. It works well in a murloc deck. However, its high cost and low health make it an easy target for your opponnent's spells or minions, as it can be killed even by a 3 mana minion or, for some, 2 mana. It is very useful when the board is under the player's control as it can easily be protected under Taunt minions, even if it still vulnerable to damage or minion destructing spells.
Necrotic Geist synergizes well with Houndmaster Shaw, since the created Ghouls will all have rush. If you have any other minions on the board, this combo can let you clear the opponent's board, since every Ghoul that dies generates a new Ghoul with rush.
It's worth noting that if on average the remaining cards in a player's deck are more valuable than the 2/2 Ghouls summoned, one might prefer to use Cult Master in place of this minion for a less immediate but more impactful effect.

Lore[edit | edit source]
- Geists are hideous crawling, gangrel creatures of the Scourge. Geists have hangman's ropes around their necks and at least some of them are executed criminals reborn as undead. Agile and quick despite their crawling gait, they are one of the lower-ranking forms of undead. Aside from use in combat, geists see a lot of service as manual labor. Despite their gagged, hooded faces (dominated by only one eye) and muffled, harsh cackling, geists are capable of coherent speech after clearing their throats.
- After being freed from the grasp of the Lich King, some geists have regrouped against him under the banner of Highlord Darion Mograine as members of the Knights of the Ebon Blade.
