|Abilities:||Battlecry, Generate, Rush|
Battlecry: Add a 1/1 Lynx with Rush to your hand.
The terrible thing about lynxes is lynxes are terrible things. Their teeth are made out of biting, their paws are made out of springs!
How to get[edit | edit source]
Springpaw can be obtained through Rastakhan's Rumble card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward. Golden Springpaw can also be obtained through the Highest Rank Bonus chest at the end of each Ranked season.

Strategy[edit | edit source]
However, Springpaw's true purpose shines when supported by other cards. Toxmonger allows Springpaw and the generated Lynx to effectively remove 2 minions from the board immediately with Rush. Support from Leokk give the player an efficient 4 damage for 2 mana. Springpaw and Lynx also serve as great fodder for Scavenging Hyena, potentially giving a huge early-game lead if the hyena is on the board on turn 1-2. If the enemy has a minion, you can send your Springpaws/Lynxes in to die and effectively gain a 6/4 hyena by turns 2-3, potentially more if you draw 2 Springpaws. Combo with Revenge of the Wild for a very large hyena. Finally, as 1-mana minions, they are effective at helping to complete the Hunter quest, The Marsh Queen.
Lore[edit | edit source]
- Lynxes are red or brown big cats mainly found in Quel'Thalas, but also on the Echo Isles, as well as Netherstorm and the Blade's Edge Mountains in Outland. They are vicious hunters that shred their prey with fang and claw.
- The springpaw lynxes of the Eversong Woods are known for their high quality pelts, and even night elves have been known to travel to Quel'Thalas just to poach them. The springpaws of Sunstrider Isle succumbed to the influence of the Burning Crystals, forcing the local blood elves to put them down.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Springpaw's flavor text is a play on the opening lines of "The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers", the personal theme song of Tigger from the Winnie the Pooh franchise.
- The song is also referenced by Stranglethorn Tiger's flavor text.
