Notes[edit | edit source]
- As with other effects that create copies of cards in hand, the copies do not also copy attached enchantments (such as Mana cost reductions).
- When a golden Thistle Tea is cast, the original card, since it is drawn, keeps its form (i.e. golden or non-golden), but the 2 created copies are golden.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
While providing card draw and potential duplication of useful cards, this Spell's prohibitive cost of 6 mana means that you're unlikely to make use of whatever card you drew even during the midgame - unless this Spell is preceded by Preparation.
This Spell contributes well to a deck centered around The Caverns Below, as it guarantees three copies of the same minion (assuming you draw a minion) that can contribute to quest completion, although it's worth noting that many existing builds for the deck often heavily rely on more efficient card draw and Return to hand effects, often achieving the quest requirements before this Spell is even playable. On the other hand, the archetype's reliance on cheap minions means that this Spell can help duplicate 5/5 attackers for easy swarming.
Lore[edit | edit source]
Thistle Tea is a drink that instantly restores the energy of a rogue. Designed for use at low levels, the tea has no effect at current level caps, making it useful mostly for levelling. Thistle Tea can be made by cooks who have learned the right recipe, and is also a reward from certain quests.
