Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

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
Deathlord Nazgrim None Minion General Paladin 2 2 2
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.
Raid Leader Free Minion General Any 3 2 2 Your other minions have +1 Attack. "That's a 50 DKP minus!"
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.
Arathi Weaponsmith Common Minion General Warrior 4 3 3 Battlecry: Equip a 2/2 weapon. 50% off fist weapons, limited time only!

Hired Gun Common Minion General Any 3 4 3 Taunt He loves his job and would do it for free! (But don't tell his boss!)
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.
Orgrimmar Aspirant Common Minion General Warrior 3 3 3 Inspire: Give your weapon +1 Attack. "Four out of three orcs struggle with math." - Angry Zurge
Pit Fighter Common Minion General Any 5 5 6 What did the pits ever do to you?
Thrallmar Farseer Common Minion General Any 3 2 3 Windfury He's stationed in the Hellfire Peninsula, but he's hoping for a reassignment closer to Orgrimmar, or really anywhere the ground is less on fire.

Alley Armorsmith Rare Minion General Warrior 5 2 7 Taunt Whenever this minion deal damage, gain that much Armor. The rent is cheap and she passes the savings onto 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.
Dragonhatcher Epic Minion General Any 9 2 4 At the end of your turn, Recruit a Dragon. Which came first? The dragon or the dragonhatcher?
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*."
Grommash Hellscream Legendary Minion General Warrior 8 4 9 Charge
Enrage: +6 Attack Grommash drank the tainted blood of Mannoroth, dooming the orcs to green skin and red eyes! Maybe not his best decision.
Malkorok Legendary Minion General Warrior 7 6 5 Battlecry: Equip a random weapon. Garrosh's best buddy. It's true. Look it up.
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.
Skycap'n Kragg Legendary Minion Pirate Any 7 4 6 Charrrrrge
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.

Name / Desc Rarity Type Subtype Class Cost Atk HP Description
Death and Decay None Spell Death Knight 3 Deal 3 damage to all enemies. 
Ancestral Healing Free Spell Shaman 0 Restore a minion to full Health and give it TauntI personally prefer some non-ancestral right-the-heck-now healing, but maybe that is just me.
Animal Companion Free Spell Hunter 3 Summon a random Beast Companion. You could summon Misha, Leokk, or Huffer! Huffer is more trouble than he's worth.
Deadly Poison Free Spell Rogue 1 Give your weapon +2 Attack. Rogues guard the secrets to poison-making carefully, lest magi start incorporating poison into their spells. Poisonbolt? Rain of Poison? Poison Elemental? Nobody wants that.
Drain Life Free Spell Warlock 3 Deal 2 damage. Restore 2 Health to your hero. "I've just sucked one year of your life away."
Execute Free Spell Warrior 2 Destroy a damaged enemy minion. It's okay, he deserved it.
Hunter's Mark Free Spell Hunter 1 Change a minion's Health to 1. Never play 'Hide and Go Seek' with a Hunter.
Swipe Free Spell Druid 4 Deal 4 damage to an enemy and 1 damage to all other enemies. When a bear rears back and extends his arms, he's about to Swipe! ... or hug.
Tracking Free Spell Hunter 1 Look at the top three cards of your deck. Draw one and discard the others. For the person who just cannot decide what card to put in their deck!
Vanish Free Spell Rogue 6 Return all minions to their owner's hand. 
Bash Common Spell Warrior 3 Deal 3 damage.
Gain 3 Armor. You might think bashing doesn't take a lot of practice. It doesn't.
Cold Blood Common Spell Rogue 1 Give a minion +2 Attack. Combo: +4 Attack instead. "I'm cold blooded, check it and see!"
Defias Ringleader Common Minion General Rogue 2 2 2 Combo: Summon a 2/1 Defias Bandit. He stole the deed to town years ago, so technically the town is his. He just calls people Scrub to be mean.
Earth Shock Common Spell Shaman 1 Silence a minion, then deal 1 damage to it. Earth Shock? Shouldn't it be "Azeroth Shock"?
Naturalize Common Spell Druid 1 Destroy a minion. Your opponent draws 2 cards. Another one bites the dust.
Power of the Horde Common Spell Any 4 Summon a random Horde Warrior. 
Quick Shot Common Spell Hunter 2 Deal 3 damage.
If your hand is empty, draw a card. Han shot first.
Stormcrack Common Spell Shaman 2 Deal 4 damage to a minion. Overload: (1) WARNING: DO NOT TOUCH THE PURPLE BALL OF LIGHTNING
Commanding Shout Rare Spell Warrior 2 Your minions can't be reduced below 1 Health this turn. Draw a card. "Shout! Shout! Let it all out!" - Advice to warriors-in-training
Devour Mind Rare Spell Priest 5 Copy 3 cards in your opponent's deck and add them to your hand. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Seconds, anyone?
Powershot Rare Spell Hunter 3 Deal 2 damage to a minion and the minions next to it. pow POW pow
Bestial Wrath Epic Spell Hunter 1 Give a friendly Beast +2 Attack and Immune this turn. The seething wrath is just beneath the surface. Beneath that is wild abandon, followed by slight annoyance.
Blood Warriors Epic Spell Warrior 3 Add a copy of each damaged friendly minion to your hand. They have an uneasy rivalry with the Blood Paladins.
Brawl Epic Spell Warrior 5 Destroy all minions except one. (chosen randomly) Do you know the first rule of Brawl Club?
Call to Arms Epic Spell Paladin 4 Recruit 3 minions that cost (2) or less. More personal than a text to arms.
Enter the Coliseum Epic Spell Paladin 6 Destroy all minions except each player's highest Attack minion. You have to get past the vendors first. So many are lost to shopping...
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!
To My Side! Epic Spell Hunter 6 Summon an Animal Companion, or 2 if your deck has no minions. I hunt alone. Well, me and Misha. And Huffer. And Leokk.
Inkmaster Solia Legendary Minion General Mage 7 5 5 Battlecry: If your deck has no duplicates, the next spell you cast this turn costs (0). Solia marks the Kabal with intricate tattoos that grant immense power. Also it makes it harder for other gangs to recruit from their numbers. BACK OFF, GOONS.
The Caverns Below Legendary Spell Rogue 1 Quest: Play five minions with the same name. Reward: Crystal Core. Why can't it ever be The Taverns Below?
