Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When Start of Game was announced, Blizzard stated they would not be modifying already-existing cards to have the updated keyword.[citation needed] Since the only card to feature this mechanic was Prince Malchezaar, this may have been a deliberate choice to allow Malchezaar to be put in decks with Baku the Mooneater without interrupting its effect, since Start of Game effects trigger before Malchezaar's. However, this claim seems to have fallen through as Prince Malchezaar's card text was changed to use the keyword.
