A picture is worth a thousand words[edit source]

Cards with Deathrattle appear with a skull and crossbones when in play - why not add a screenshot, like for the Taunt? -- Karol007 (talk) 01:15, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

Why was the Nerubian Egg damaged?[edit source]

Deathrattle#References: Played Avenge then Abomination; opponent destroyed Abomination, Avenge triggered before Abomination's Deathrattle (buffing a damaged Nerubian Egg and allowing it to survive the damage from the Deathrattle).

Nerubian Egg at full health (but not with any health buff) would die from Abomination's deathrattle anyway. Even if the egg was damaged, I think this should be omitted here. -- Karol007 (talk) 01:41, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

More to the point, order of play doesn't matter here - even if Avenge triggered after the Abomination's Deathrattle, a mortally wounded minion is a valid target for its buff. --Patashu (talk) 03:18, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
Agreed; I've trimmed that part. -- Taohinton (talk) 20:45, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Sylvanas Windrunner[edit source]

The list of all cards with deathrattle in standard format includes Sylvanas Windrunner. Since this list is dynamically generated by the "List cards" template with a "format=standard|ability=Deathrattle", I cannot change that on this page. (And I suspect that all pages using this template have similar issues).
I did already look at the template page. If I read that jumbled code correctly, the format parameter is passed on to a query. I guess that this query mistakes the Hall Of Fame set as being in Standard format. Unfortunately, I was not able to find the source for this query, so I could not check if this is a change I can make. Can someone point me in the right direction?

It turns out the Standard/Wild distinction is one of the rare uses of Categories for organization rather than data tagging. I just fixed it on Sylvanas's page, she must've been missed in the HoF changeover. All the other HoF cards are correctly Wild. The categories are displayed at the bottom of pages, and in wikitext are usually at the bottom too. (See Sylvanas' most recent edit by me to see exactly what I mean.) Good catch, thanks! - jerodast (talk) 17:16, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
