Strategy[edit | edit source]

Netherwind Portal provides a free 4 cost minion whenever your opponent casts a spell, providing a minion advantage. Though unreliable, many 4 cost minions are powerful like Archmage Vargoth, or Zul'Drak Ritualist or just a Taunt to block enemies from hitting your hero.

This is a great card for decks that utilizes secrets like Secret Mage, or a Spell Mage to help make up for their lack of minions.

Possible summons[edit | edit source]

The below table lists all 4-cost collectible minions in Standard format, representing the range of possible minions summoned by Netherwind Portal.
