Simulacrum is an epic mage spell card, from the Knights of the Frozen Throne set.

How to get[edit]

Simulacrum can be obtained through Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs, or through crafting.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Simulacrum 400 100
Golden Simulacrum 1600 400


  • When determining which minion in the player's hand to generate a copy of, Simulacrum looks at their current costs, including any cost reduction effects. If there are several minions with the same cost, Simulacrum will choose one of them at random.[1]
  • As of Patch 12.0, Simulacrum will keep any enchantments and cost reductions of the copied card.


Simulacrum works well in Quest Mage, where it can be used to get an additional copy of Sorcerer's Apprentice. In addition, it plays really well with cards that reduce their cost on their own like Nerubian Prophet or Arcane Giant as they need less effort to power up the effect of this card. With the introduction of Kobolds and Catacombs, you can now play Exodia without Quest, using two Simulacrum on a Sorcerer's Apprentice and then playing Leyline Manipulator, which makes the two new Apprentices free. When you have ten mana, play Archmage Antonidas, the two free Apprentices, another Apprentice and a Molten Reflection for infinite Fireball.
