The Fist of Ra-den
|Tags:||Cost-related, Durability-related, Random, Rarity-related, Triggered effect|
After you cast a spell, summon a Legendary minion of that Cost. Lose 1 Durability.
The mighty Ra-den was known as the Keeper of Storms. Unfortunately, he could not keep his fist.
How to get[edit | edit source]
|The Fist of Ra-den||1600||400|
|Golden The Fist of Ra-den||3200||1600|
Notes[edit | edit source]
- For notes, refer to Medivh, the Guardian and Summoning Stone.
- Playing a 0-mana spell will not trigger the summon nor reduce the durability, since there are no 0-mana Legendaries.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
This card is similar to Atiesh, except that it can be equipped by itself without the need to play Medivh, the Guardian. On average, The Fist of Ra-den will be weaker than Atiesh. Most Legendary minions have average or sub-par stats, with most of their power coming from their Battlecry or conditional effect. However, the sharply cheaper casting cost and extra durability make up for this weakness.
Generally, The Fist of Ra-den performs best when played alongside midrange to high-cost spells. Rain of Toads, Eye of the Storm, Hagatha's Scheme, and Earthquake are all great picks that can heavily swing the board in your favour with the free Legendary minion provided.

Battlecry: Replace your hand with a copy of your opponent's. The cards are always golden on the other side.
At the end of your turn, deal 2 damage to ALL other characters. Baron Geddon was Ragnaros's foremost lieutenant, until he got FIRED.

Battlecry: Discover 5 cards. Replace your deck with 2 copies of each. Your deck is just another organizational challenge to her.
Choose One - Give your other minions +2/+2; or Summon two 2/2 Treants with Taunt. Yes, he's a demigod. No, he doesn't need to wear a shirt.

Choose a friendly minion. Add a copy of it to your hand, deck and battlefield. Just wait until you also find a copy in your pocket. And your desk! And your FRIDGE!!
Battlecry: Repeat all other Battlecries from cards you played this game (targets chosen randomly). Beware the Shudderwock, my son. We're fresh out of vorpal daggers.
At the end of your turn, add a Dream Card to your hand. Ysera rules the Emerald Dream. Which is some kind of green-mirror-version of the real world, or something?

Lore[edit | edit source]
- Aman'Thul the Highfather, leader of the titan Pantheon, entrusted his greatest servant, Highkeeper Ra, with this artifact, which could channel the fury of the storms. Ra used it to bestow life on the titan-forged mogu race, and he wielded it in battle against the Black Empire for years beyond counting. Later lost to Ra, the weapon was ultimately recovered by the August Celestial Xuen, who saw its immense and dangerous power, and chose to safeguard it until someone worthy could take up the weapon in a righteous cause once again.
