Strategy[edit | edit source]

This minion is a 4/6 Taunt split between two minions, which in some cases is superior to one.

Because this minion summons a copy of itself, it works well with the Grimy Goons hand-buffing effects, such as Smuggler's Run and Stolen Goods, doubling up the buffs. Its Taunt characteristic also gives it great synergy with Strongshell Scavenger, or Bolster in Wild.

Should this card be overbuffed from handbuffing, combining with overbuffed doppelgangster can potentially be a instant-win condition forcing your opponent to concede.

Like Doppelgangster, this minion and the copy it summons make it a great fit for Evolve decks.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Saronite is a metal found in Northrend. It is the blood of Yogg-Saron. According to Daggle Bombstrider, it's a very popular item on the black market.
The major user of saronite is the Scourge, who utilizes this evil metal to its full potential. They have used this metal to power their war machine and construct their master's stronghold, Icecrown Citadel, as well as the ramparts, spires and cathedrals that practically cover the Icecrown region. The Scourge, in the laboratories of the Fleshwerks, have also begun implanting broken shards of saronite into the bodies of ghouls, resulting in much deadlier minions in the Scourge legions. The Lich King has even commissioned the construction of a necropolis, Malykriss, which would be made completely of saronite.

This minion appears to represent the Alliance and Horde soldiers that have been captured and enslaved by the Scourge and forced to constantly mine Yogg-Saron's blood in Icecrown's Saronite Mines, a practice that subjects them to the Old God's unrelenting, maddening whispers and drives them insane.
