Netherspite Historian is a common neutral minion card, from the One Night in Karazhan set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Two copies of regular Netherspite Historian are obtained by defeating Netherspite, the second boss in One Night in Karazhan's fourth and final wing, The Spire.

As a Wild format card, both regular and golden versions of Netherspite Historian can also be crafted for the following amounts:

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Netherspite Historian 40 5
Golden Netherspite Historian 400 50

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The limited range of collectible Dragons means Netherspite Historian has a good chance of providing at least one high value card for selection, making it extremely card efficient, and particularly powerful in the late game. Synergizes well with copies of Twilight Guardian and Book Wyrm in your hand since they both trigger the Historian's effect, and the Historian's battlecry subsequently provides another Dragon to trigger the aforementioned Dragons.
