Strategy[edit | edit source]
This works well against decks with lots of small minions. It would fit in a control deck seeking to clear the board of their opponent's low-Attack minions without damaging their own larger minions.
Note that this spell destroys all minions with 2 or lower Attack, not just enemy ones.
Pint-Size Potion's flavor text mentions this card, as a reference to the strong combo of these two cards (which effectively clears all enemy minions with 5 or less Attack, while still only losing your own minions of 2 or less Attack)
Lore[edit | edit source]
Shadow Word: Horror is a Shadow Word, a spell of dark magic used by priests to afflict and destroy their enemies. Unlike the other Shadow Words in Hearthstone - Shadow Word: Pain and Shadow Word: Death - Shadow Word: Horror is original to Hearthstone.
