We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.
This page lists cards with card art depicting orcs.
Lore[edit | edit source]
- The orcs are one of the most prolific races on Azeroth. Originally hailing from the harsh, alien world of Draenor, the orcs were once a noble shamanistic people cultivating a mighty tribal society that was centered around survival, regulating themselves through ritualized combat and personal honor. Tragically betrayed by one of their spiritual leaders and delivered into the hands of the Burning Legion, the orc clans fell deep into demonic enslavement and were led into Azeroth as an unholy vanguard of the Legion meant to destroy everything in their path.
- Yet, the shamanistic tradition of the orcs managed to rekindle from the ashes, and a young shaman by the name of Thrall arose to become a living symbol of his people's true identity in their darkest hour, causing many of the orcs to rise up against their demon masters and break free from their control. Several of the orcish clans that had existed on Draenor since ancient times reemerged and were united under Thrall's guidance, and the shaman warchief led the orcs out of the Eastern Kingdoms they had been forced to invade and into the continent of Kalimdor, in order to begin a new existence for themselves and their newfound allies. There, they founded the nation of Durotar and the great city of Orgrimmar.
- Today, Thrall's orcs are a redeemed people who have reclaimed their destiny from dark influences, fighting no longer for the sake of destruction but for their very right of survival in their adopted world.

|Name / Desc||Rarity||Type||Subtype||Class||Cost||Atk||HP||Description|
|Frostwolf Grunt||Free||Minion||General||Any||2||2||2||Taunt Grunting is what his father did and his father before that. It's more than just a job.|
|Frostwolf Warlord||Free||Minion||General||Any||5||4||4||Battlecry: Gain +1/+1 for each other friendly minion on the battlefield. The Frostwolves are locked in combat with the Stormpike Expedition over control of Alterac Valley. Every attempt at peace-talks has ended with Captain Galvangar killing the mediator.|
|Kor'kron Elite||Free||Minion||General||Warrior||4||4||3||Charge The Kor'kron are the elite forces of Garrosh Hellscream. Let's just say you don't want to run into these guys while wearing a blue tabard.|

|Razorfen Hunter||Free||Minion||General||Any||3||2||3||Battlecry: Summon a 1/1 Boar. Someone did mess with Tuskerr once. ONCE.|
|Warsong Commander||Free||Minion||General||Warrior||3||2||3||Your Charge minions have +1 Attack. The Warsong clan is such drama. It's really not worth it to become a commander.|
|Wolfrider||Free||Minion||General||Any||3||3||1||Charge Orcish raiders ride wolves because they are well adapted to harsh environments, and because they are soft and cuddly.|

|Lance Carrier||Common||Minion||General||Any||2||1||2||Battlecry: Give a friendly minion +2 Attack. Lance Carrier is an obscure entry level position in orcish armies. A mystery, since orcs don't generally use lances.|

|Pit Fighter||Common||Minion||General||Any||5||5||6||What did the pits ever do to you?|

|Bloodsail Corsair||Rare||Minion||Pirate||Any||1||1||2||Battlecry: Remove 1 Durability from your opponent's weapon. Every pirate uses the same four digits to access Automated Gold Dispensers. It's called the "Pirate's Code".|

|Injured Blademaster||Rare||Minion||General||Any||3||4||7||Battlecry: Deal 4 damage to HIMSELF. He claims it is an old war wound, but we think he just cut himself shaving.|
|Fel Orc Soulfiend||Epic||Minion||General||Any||3||3||7||At the start of your turn, deal 2 damage to this minion. "Doc says the persistent burning sensation in my soul is probably just an ulcer."|
|Fight Promoter||Epic||Minion||General||Any||6||4||4||Battlecry: If you control a minion with 6 or more Health, draw two cards. "Yeah, I can get you Knuckles. No, no, he's been clean for *weeks*."|
Enrage: +6 Attack Grommash drank the tainted blood of Mannoroth, dooming the orcs to green skin and red eyes! Maybe not his best decision.

|Rend Blackhand||Legendary||Minion||General||Any||7||8||4||Battlecry: If you're holding a Dragon, destroy a Legendary minion. Rend believes he is the True Warchief of the Horde and he keeps editing the wikipedia page for "Warchief of the Horde" to include his picture.|
Costs (1) less for each friendly Pirate. What's more boss than riding a parrot with a jawbone for a shoulderpad while wielding a giant hook-lance-thing and wearing a pirate hat? NOTHING.

|Far Sight||Epic||Spell||Shaman||3||Draw a card. That card costs (3) less. Drek'thar can't see, but he can see. You know what I mean? It's ok if you don't.|
|Fel Reaver||Epic||Minion||Mech||Any||5||8||8||Whenever your opponent plays a card, remove the top 3 cards of your deck. So reaver. Much fel. Wow.|
|Gorehowl||Epic||Weapon||Warrior||7||7||1||Attacking a minion costs 1 Attack instead of 1 Durability. Grommash Hellscream's famous axe. Somehow this ended up in Prince Malchezaar's possession. Quite the mystery!|
