Known bugs[edit | edit source]

  • When you use Treachery to give your opponent an Alarm-o-Bot, its effect will not activate at the start of your opponent's next turn, but rather one turn later.[1]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The main purpose of this card is to give a minion with a negative Deathrattle, end-of-turn, or triggered effect to the opponent and force them to suffer its effect instead. Some of the cards that make good use of Treachery include:

  • Doomsayer: Clears the board for 5 Mana. While it won't give you a tempo shift like Doomsayer normally would, it counters Deathrattles that only activate on the opponent's turn, like Skelemancer.
  • Ticking Abomination: Heavily damages the enemy board. This effect lacks a true one-turn combo (barring an inefficient Bloodbloom + Blastcrystal Potion combo), so it will require a board setup.
  • Keening Banshee: Could be used to force the enemy to lose cards from their deck, or make unfavorable trades.
  • Howlfiend: Makes the opponent discard their hand. Can be combined with Defile or Spreading Madness to empty out the opponent's hand.
  • Bittertide Hydra: Similar concept as above, but with damage instead. This combo costs 2 more mana, so you will need to set up your board first to exploit it.
  • Unlicensed Apothecary: Can be used with Leeroy Jenkins to deal 10 extra damage, although this combo can't be played in a single turn. More effective in Wild with Emperor Thaurissan, Brann Bronzebeard, and Hungry Dragon.
  • Rattling Rascal: Trades a 2/2 for a 5/5, giving you two 5/5s at the cost of giving the opponent a 2/2.
  • Fel Reaver: With a large number of low-cost cards, this combo can be used to mill most or all of the opponent's deck.
  • Master Chest: You get the reward from its deathrattle instead of your opponent.
