How to get[edit | edit source]
|Golden Sunborne Val'kyr||400||50|
Strategy[edit | edit source]
This card can give a total 5/8 stats on the board for only 5 mana. The +2 Health buff can be used to trade minions efficiently with your opponent and keep valuable minions alive for longer. It works very well with the Priest class, which can heal said minions back up after trading.
Because this card costs 5 mana, it can be played after a Lightspawn to turn it into a 7/7.

Lore[edit | edit source]
- Val'kyr are a type of ascended female vrykul. The original val'kyr are warriors of the Light who serve the Prime Designate Odyn by bringing the spirits of the glorious dead to his Halls of Valor. The val'kyr of the Scourge acted as the Lich King's agents in the spirit world and were described by Thoralius the Wise as "fearsome creatures made of pure nightmare" that "now stand watch over the realm of the elements". After the defeat of the Lich King, several val'kyr now serve the Forsaken under Sylvanas Windrunner.
This val'kyr's golden appearance suggests that it is one of Odyn's val'kyr, rather than one of the Lich King's. Sunborne Val'kyr is also specifically the name of a miniature val'kyr companion pet which can be purchased upon reaching Revered reputation with the Valarjar faction in World of Warcraft, and whose Pet Journal description reads: "Val'kyr are considered "sunborne" when they are honored in the presence of Odyn."
