Risky Skipper is a rare warrior minion card, from the Galakrond's Awakening set.

How to get[edit]

Two copies of regular Risky Skipper are obtained by defeating The Dragonflights in Galakrond's Awakening's Chapter 3 of E.V.I.L. campaign.

Once the regular version has been obtained, both regular and golden versions can be crafted and disenchanted.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Risky Skipper 100 20
Golden Risky Skipper 800 100

Strategy[edit]

Risky Skipper is a source of repeatable Board control, similar to a "per minion" version of Wild Pyromancer. However, this comes at the downside of needing multiple minions in your hand, as well as damaging whatever you play.

You can turn this downside into an upside using cards like Frothing Berserker, Grim Patron, or Enrage minions, which gain benefits when taking damage. This allows for powerful swing turns, both clearing small minions from your opponent and improving your own board.

Despite the Pirate tag, this is an absolutely terrible card for Pirate Warrior, which uses many small minions and doesn't care about board control.

Quotes[edit]
