Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The mana cost of this card is reduced by 2 if the opponent controls three or more minions.
  • The mana cost of this card cannot be reduced below 0. However, further cost-reductions can help in countering cost-increasing effects like Freezing Trap.
  • This card has an in-hand effect: it modifies its own mana cost only while in the player's hand, and not while the card is anywhere else.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

A simple Taunt, its ability lies in the cost reduction of (2). Best played if your opponent has at least three minions on the board, but if you need a desperate Taunt, you can play it, like Dread Corsair. This card is more effective against zoo-type decks which can more easily activate its cost reduction.

This card combos well with Cornered Sentry, which activates its condition on its own.
