Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Friendly minions must have exactly 7 Health to activate this effect, not necessary having the 7 Health as baseline.[1]
  • Star Aligner can count itself as one of the three 7-Health minions required to activate its effect.[2]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

While this card's Battlecry is extremely powerful, its requirements are strict to match it. It's almost impossible to directly put 2 other minions with 7 Health due to a lack of cheap 7-Health minions, with this card being no exception. If the opponent is able to put even a small amount of pressure on you, they can disrupt your combo by dealing damage to your minions. However, there are effects that circumvent the mana required to summon these minions.

In Standard, the easiest way is to use Carnivorous Cube, which generates two copies of a given 7-health minion upon its deathrattle. Another practical way to pull off this combo is with major cost reduction effects like Jungle Giants (Barnabus the Stomper) or Luna's Pocket Galaxy. Another way to pull off the combo is to use the free summon effect of Skull of the Man'ari then copy it by using Bloodbloom to cast Ectomancy, leaving up to 8 mana to summon the Aligner.

In Wild, Star Aligner's Battlecry is far easier to pull off with Aviana and Kun the Forgotten King. Juicy Psychmelon lets you draw three out of four of the combo pieces needed in one go if you include a 8 or 9-mana minion with 7 Health like Medivh, the Guardian. Not only that, Brann Bronzebeard can also be used to to double the damage and any minion who can reuse its Battlecry like Ancient Brewmaster and Flobbidinous Floop will make it even deadlier.

Quotes[edit | edit source]
