Strategy[edit | edit source]

Tar Lord is an exceptionally powerful defensive minion, becoming a formidable 5/11 Taunt on your opponent's turn.

Being a strong Taunt, this card is great for working on Fire Plume's Heart.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Tar Lords are tar beasts found near the Lakkari Tar Pits in Un'Goro Crater. They share a model with bog beasts in World of Warcraft, but are instead represented as tar elementals in Hearthstone.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • All three tar elementals in Hearthstone share a common ability, as Taunt minions with 1 attack during your turn but higher attack during your opponent's. The other two are Tar Lurker and Tar Creeper.
  • This card's flavor text is a reference to the 2014 film Guardians of the Galaxy.[1]
