Strategy[edit | edit source]

Akazamzarak's hero power generates cards that can be used by both of you. The idea is to have a strategy and turn an advantage that the cards give in your favour by counteracting Akazamzarak's advantage.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The Great Akazamzarak is a magician normally found entertaining some Dalaran Citizens at the Eventide in Dalaran. He is an expert with portals and teleportation and is therefore recruited by the Tirisgarde in order to teleport its members inside the Hall of the Guardian, bypassing the security wards.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When looked at carefully, the card in the art for his Hero Power is a golden copy of Dr. Boom. Additionally, if his Presto Legendaro gives you a golden Dr. Boom, he will say: Whoa whoa, not that card! Give it back. Take THIS instead, then swaps it with his. Both of these are references to one of his acts in World of Warcraft, where one of his volunteers picks a golden Dr. Boom among his cards and Akazamzarak angrily takes it back.
