Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Spirit of the Rhino is a cheap and powerful card in Rush Warrior decks. Rush minions' greatest weakness is that their health typically goes down fast due to their main purpose being favorable trading. This card allows Rush minions to hit an enemy minion while keeping their health for the next turn, allowing the warrior to get rid of their opponent's minions while maintaining strong board presence.

In particular, this card pairs well with Darius Crowley and Akali, the Rhino. Darius can kill a minion and immediately gain +2/+2 without hurting himself. Akali's low health is not an issue with Spirit of the Rhino as it protects him the turn he is summoned. This could potentially even allow Akali's powerful Overkill effect to activate a second time if the enemy is not quick in dealing with him.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The Spirit of the Rhino is, as the name suggests, a spiritual manifestation[1] of Akali, the rhino loa.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The flavor text is a reference to the "Flight of the Conchords" song, "Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros".
