Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Before The Witchwood expansion, Prince Malchezaar was the only card to feature the as-yet-to-be-named "Start of Game" mechanic. Prince Malchezaar's text was changed with Patch to include "Start of Game" in its card text, probably 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.
