Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Boogeymonster starts with poor stats for its cost, but its triggered effect provides the potential for it to grow to gargantuan size, or at least trade for multiple minions. Because its effect is triggered only by minion death, The Boogeymonster is best used for trading with other minions, but if it survives long enough for its Attack to increase, it can become a powerful source of face damage.

The main challenge with The Boogeymonster is keeping it alive long enough to benefit from its triggered effect, and the tempo drain from its 8 mana cost. The best way for it to gain immediate value is to put it in a Warrior deck with Charge. It can be effective against Zoo decks that don't have single target removal in hand, but note that the effect only activates when The Boogeymonster initiated the attack, meaning the opponent is free to trade against it on their own turn without penalty. It is less effective against large minions, although healing can help it to withstand multiple trades. Play it when the opponent already has a medium minion or two on the board, giving you a good chance of trading with one of them next turn, buffing the Boogeymonster. If the opponent plays The Boogeymonster, you should probably attempt to remove it before it can start trading with your minions.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The Boogeymonster is a mysterious being unique to Hearthstone.[1] It was created by the Old Gods,[2] although it does bear a resemblance to the mistlurkers, mysterious predatory creatures who dwell in the mists surrounding the continent of Pandaria. As Pandaria's mists were partially created by the Sha of Pride, a spawn of the Old God Y'Shaarj, this may explain the link between the Boogeymonster and the Old Gods.
