Strategy[edit | edit source]

Worryingly similar to Magma Rager, this minion's Stealth significantly improves its value over that card, and offers synergy with cards like Shadow Sensei.

Lore[edit | edit source]

While this creature shares the conventional naming and stat distribution of elemental "ragers" (Magma Rager, Ice Rager and Am'gam Rager), it bears more resemblance to a shade, much like the Ancient and Shifting Shades.

From Wowpedia:

Shades are disembodied spirits and are similar to ghosts in that they are the spectral remains of a once-living person. These often restless spirits are mostly found in the Plaguelands, other undead-infested areas, and the village surrounding the mysterious tower of Karazhan. Because they do not have a real body, some shades are immune to physical damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The fourth in a long line of Ragers, like Ice Rager before it this minion is strictly superior to the Basic Magma Rager.
  • This is currently the only class-specific Rager.
  • As of its addition to the game, Shadow Rager was the first Rager to be considered moderately playable; its Stealth gives it a significantly higher chance to survive long enough to trade into a higher costed minion, or deal a respectable amount of damage to the opposing hero for its cost. This is especially true in Arena where the use of AoE cards is significantly less.
