How to get[edit | edit source]
|Golden Silver Vanguard||400||50|
Strategy[edit | edit source]
While Silver Vanguard's stats are pitiful for its cost, it has an enormously powerful Deathrattle, allowing it to Recruit an 8-Cost minion. When including Silver Vanguard in your deck, you want to make sure you include 8-Cost minions that would benefit from being summoned straight from the deck; while minions with a positive Battlecry like Tortollan Primalist and Kalimos, Primal Lord would decrease in value, those with persistent effects such as The Lich King and Rotface, or even those with negative Battlecries like Charged Devilsaur would be more beneficial. Be wary of Silence effects, as they will render Silver Vanguard nearly worthless. Spiritsinger Umbra and N'Zoth, the Corruptor synergize fantastically with her.
8-cost minions[edit | edit source]
|Name / Desc||Rarity||Subtype||Class||Cost||Atk||HP||Description|
Taunt I dare you to attack Darnassus.
Your other Elementals have +2 Attack. Decorating tip: Unused cauldrons can make a lovely elemental display.
Deathrattle: Restore 8 Health to your hero. Unfortunately, his doctorate is in Murloc Literature.
Taunt. Battlecry: Gain +2/+2 for each other friendly minion. We reserve the right to refuse service to any 1/1.
Divine Shield Can’t break the rules if you can’t read ‘em.
Battlecry: Deal 5 damage. PIT! Not PET!
Lifesteal, Rush, Windfury The weirdest part is that it doesn't have legs.
Whenever you cast a spell, gain +2/+2. Likes her magic with a pinch of salt.
|Gilnean Royal Guard||Rare||General||Any||8||3||8|
Divine Shield, Rush
Each turn this is in your hand, swap its Attack and Health. Admittedly, they kind of dropped the ball with Prince Liam.
Battlecry: Summon a copy of this minion. Also known as an ancient copy machine.
Rush. After this attacks and kills a minion, it may attack again. When it comes to problem-solving, he always uses his head.
Deathrattle: Summon two 2/2 Splitting Saplings. No use crying over split Festeroot.
Battlecry: Discover a copy of a spell in your deck and cast it with random targets. A tortollan made it to the desert!
Your minions with Windfury have Mega-Windfury. And your minions with mega-windfury get... dizzy.
|Akali, the Rhino||Legendary||Beast||Warrior||8||5||5|
Rush, Overkill: Draw a Rush minion and give it +5/+5. Most trolls only get to “AAAAHHH!” and don’t make it to the “kali” part.
|Al'Akir the Windlord||Legendary||Elemental||Shaman||8||3||5|
Windfury, Charge, Divine Shield, Taunt He is the weakest of the four Elemental Lords. And the other three don't let him forget it.
Battlecry: Summon 3 Pirates from your deck. Give them Rush. "You three! Get in the cannon!"
At the end of your turn, summon a friendly minion that died this game. She always manages to lift your spirits.
Battlecry: Gain the Deathrattle effects of 3 friendly minions that died this game. First Deathrattle: Draw a card.
Second: Draw 2 cards.
Third: Throw Mon'kind off a steel cage and plummet sixteen feet through an announcer’s table.
|Fel Lord Betrug||Legendary||Demon||Warlock||8||5||7|
Whenever you draw a minion, summon a copy with Rush that dies at end of turn. Nobody else likes rush hour.
Has +6 Attack while damaged. Grommash drank the tainted blood of Mannoroth, dooming the orcs to green skin and red eyes! Maybe not his best decision.
At the end of each turn, gain +1/+1 . He's Gruul "the Dragonkiller". He just wanted to cuddle them… he never meant to…
|Hex Lord Malacrass||Legendary||General||Mage||8||5||5|
Battlecry: Add a copy of your opening hand to your hand (except this card). Extremely awkward cousin of Hex Lord Malaclass.
|Hir'eek, the Bat||Legendary||Beast||Warlock||8||1||1|
Battlecry: Fill your board with copies of this minion. REPEL’S EFFECT WORE OFF.
Battlecry: Draw 2 minions from your deck. Set their Attack, Health, and Cost to 1. "I'm a real toy now!"
Deathrattle: Go dormant. Restore 5 Health to awaken this minion. Always feels refreshed after a little dirt nap.
Deathrattle: Draw 8 cards. Eight arms of sand-flinging, foe-wringing, card-slinging fury!
Battlecry: Summon all minions from your hand that didn't start in your deck. Everyone wants to be a princess, but nobody ever considers the size of the hat.
Battlecry: Choose a friendly minion. Add a 10/10 copy to your hand that costs (10). We're going to need some bigger tweezers.
Battlecry: Replay every card from another class you've played this game (targets chosen randomly). Those who cannot remember their card history are doomed to repeat it.
Divine Shield. Taunt. Deathrattle: Equip a 5/3 Ashbringer. If you haven't heard the Tirion Fordring theme song, it's because it doesn't exist.
