Strategy[edit | edit source]

Similar to Webspinner or Jeweled Macaw, this card is a 1-drop value-generating Beast for Hunters.

Shimmerfly can synergize well with cards that benefit from Deathrattles, such as Necromechanic, or Spells, such as Zul'jin. Being a Beast also lets Shimmerfly synergize with Hunter's large amount of Beast-related cards.
