Strategy[edit | edit source]

The stats of Professor Putricide are good on its own, but it's text is what makes it special, for every secret you play, you technically play two secrets, which will make your opponent have to play around the secrets. Ideally you would play Cloaked Huntress on turn 3 and follow it up by playing Putricide to gain a big advantage.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

"Good news, everyone! I think I've perfected a plague that will destroy all life on Azeroth!"
Professor Putricide is the Scourge genius behind the development of all forms of blight, plague, ooze, scourge, and death delivery. He is the final boss in the Plagueworks section of Icecrown Citadel, the first Icecrown wing to be unlocked. In order to reach his laboratory, players must first defeat Festergut and Rotface.
He is also the mind behind Grobbulus and the Slime Abominations. As well as being the benefactor under Kel'Thuzad, to create the plague that mutated Loatheb from a Fungal Monster to a Fungal Abomination.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This card is the first and currently only legendary hunter minion that is not a Beast.
  • Just like in his World of Warcraft incarnation, Putricide's voice, quotes, and overall demeanor are a reference to the character Professor Farnsworth from the American animated TV series Futurama.
  • The artwork of this card has been used as the Phase 2 image for the Putricide Boss.
