Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Voraxx casts the copied spell, not the player.[1]
  • With the exception of Druid "Choose One" spells, if the spell played on the Voraxx has a choice effect (Ex. Adaptation), it will first give choices to apply on the Voraxx, followed by choices to apply on the Plant.
  • If the spell played on the Voraxx is a Choose One spell, the chosen effect will apply to both the Voraxx and the Plant.
  • If a spell cast on the Voraxx kills it, it will neither summon the Plant, nor cast a copy of the spell.
    • Example: You summon The Voraxx, then cast Tidal Surge on it. The spell lethally damages The Voraxx, and restores 4 Health to your hero. Because The Voraxx is lethally damaged, it will not summon a Plant, and your hero will not be healed a second time.
    • Example: You have The Voraxx in play with an enchantment increasing its stats to 5/5. You cast Tidal Surge on it, damaging The Voraxx for 4 and restoring 4 Health to your hero. Now The Voraxx is not lethally damaged, so it will summon a 1/1 Plant and cast a copy of Tidal Surge on it. The spell kills the Plant with its 4 damage, and restores another 4 Health to your hero.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This card has a similar effect to Violet Teacher, with two important differences. Where Violet Teacher summons a Violet Apprentice for every spell you cast, the Voraxx only summons a Plant for spells you cast on the Voraxx itself, which makes this card especially useful in combination with buff spells. This is compensated for by that buff spell then being copied onto the Plant. Note, however, that The Voraxx triggers after the spell's effect while Violet Teacher's ability triggers before.

Example: After casting Blessing of Kings on the Voraxx, both the Plant and the Voraxx will gain 4 attack and 4 health. Casting the same spell on a Violet Teacher would buff only the Teacher and not the Apprentice.

As with Wild Pyromancer in combination with area of effect spells, players must be careful not to kill The Voraxx with their spell and prevent it from triggering. This is less common with The Voraxx, since only a few spells such as Tidal Surge have secondary benefits that could make it desirable to target The Voraxx with a harmful spell in the first place.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The Voraxx is a voracious, carnivorous plant unique to Hearthstone. The name "Voraxx" was given to it by the tortollans, who try to avoid it. The second 'x' is "so you know it's cool".[2]
