Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Nethrandamus must be in your hand for his effect to activate.
  • The cost of the minions is capped at 10.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Nethrandamus works best with cards that can generate extra minions, such as Satyr Overseer, Ur'zul Horror, and Harvest Golem. He also works spectacularly well with Coordinated Strike and Command the Illidari, which rapidly scale his death count.

However, Nethrandamus has a few key downsides. As a Dragon, he is entirely devoid of Demon Hunter synergies, which typically focus on Demons. He is also a 9 mana minion, which can clog the hand and prevent access to Outcast cards and the effect of Altruis the Outcast. Since he needs to be kept in the hand to increase his effect, this is essentially impossible to ignore. His high cost will also leave you with a dead card in the hand for a long time while he scales.

With the baseline body of an 8/8 that summons two 0-drops (typically 1/1s), Nethrandamus is a playable topdeck in the lategame as a much worse Onyxia.

Quotes[edit | edit source]
