"Recurring" is an unofficial term used to refer to spells that may re-cast themselves if their activation condition is met.

While no official keyword is used to denote the ability, precisely the same text is found on three cards: If X (trigger), cast this again.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Recurring spells will only re-cast themselves if their specific trigger could be activated.
  • If a recurring spell causes itself to be cast repeatedly, these additional "recasts" will not count as having been cast by the controlling player, and will therefore not trigger effects such as those of Gadgetzan Auctioneer nor add to the spell count of Yogg-Saron, Hope's End.[1]
  • Triggered effects have a chance to resolve between cast and re-cast. For instance, if Defile kills a Harvest Golem, then its re-cast will kill the Damaged Golem summoned by Harvest Golem's Deathrattle.

Cards[edit | edit source]
