Keyword[edit | edit source]

Recruit is a unique keyword, since it's an ability found on cards outside the Kobolds & Catacombs set, but was not added to older or future cards. In part, this was to unify the flavor of Kobolds & Catacombs, but was also done for technical reasons. Minions such as Y'Shaarj, Rage Unbound will place minions to their direct right, while Meat Wagon will place them in the spot were it was destroyed. This is unlike Recruit, which always puts the minion on the rightmost side, similar to a spell effect. Putting Recruit on these minions would either create an inconsistency or require a minor change in how they function.
