Nightmare Amalgam was a tier 2 minion in the Battlegrounds game mode.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Nightmare Amalgam was a highly flexible minion that benefitted from every buff in the game, and was applicable to nearly every strategy if you grab this minion early enough.

It can be employed to fill for missing tribal synergies to make the most out of Lightfang Enforcer and Queen Wagtoggle's hero power. As such, it was a crucial minion for battlecry strategies that revolved around Brann Bronzebeard, and spending rounds buying and selling various battlecry buff minions.

Nightmare Amalgam will always benefit from The Rat King's hero power.

Towards the end game if you had two Nightmare Amalgams with poisonous and divine shield, it was generally not advisable to merge them into a golden copy.

Nightmare Amalgam was one of only two minions that could recieve buffs intended for dragons, such as Menagerie Magician and Zoobot. The other being Amalgam (Battlegrounds).

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Despite being removed from Battlegrounds, Nightmare Amalgam will still be offered in the mode's tutorial. It is displayed with no tavern tier, and if bought, the tutorial will soft-lock and cannot progress further.
