Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If Unseen Saboteur forces the opponent to play a spell that give them Attack (Ex. Savage Roar), the hero will deal retaliatory damage back when attacked during that turn.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Since this minion has below-average stats and the potential for a disastrous effect, it should only be played if you're looking to interrupt an opponent's combo or waste value. At its most basic, Unseen Saboteur will effectively discard a card from your opponent, wasting one of their spells at an inopportune time. How you set up for Unseen Saboteur depends on what you think your opponent is holding. If you think they have an important summoning spell like Zerek's Cloning Gallery or The Forest's Aid, save an AoE effect to deal with the aftermath. If you think they have a board clear, play this on an empty board. Try to play this when common spells will have no value, such as Battle Rage when the opponent has no damaged characters.

Any targeted spell can hit anything, so use the board accordingly. If they have direct damage, play this when you're behind on the board. If they have buffs, play this while ahead.

Beware of purely beneficial spells like Dragon Roar or Unstable Portal, since you'll essentially give them value for free.

You can use Lorewalker Cho and give the opponent a detrimental spell like Myra's Unstable Element then play Unseen Saboteur to force them to play it. This gimmick is not guaranteed, however.

If the spell casted from your opponent's hand has Overload, the overload will trigger for your opponent's next turn.
