Strategy[edit | edit source]
When played, Lord Jaraxxus transforms your current hero into Lord Jaraxxus. Lord Jaraxxus changes multiple attributes and abilities of your hero when put into play:
- Your heroes current and maximum Health is set to 15
- Your Hero Power is replaced with INFERNO!
- Your hero equips Blood Fury
INFERNO! allows Lord Jaraxxus to summon minions for extremely cheap, and Blood Fury gives Lord Jaraxxus the ability to attack for an extended period of time; together they add uncharacteristic value to a Warlock deck for a small amount of mana per turn.
Playing Lord Jaraxxus isn't without downsides. Playing Lord Jaraxxus gives your hero the subtype of Demon, and reduces your Health to 15 if it was above that. Lord Jaraxxus counts as a minion when played from your hand, and damage taken from Secrets before converting to a hero will carry over when Lord Jaraxxus replaces your current hero.
As a general strategy, Lord Jaraxxus can be played when your current hero has very little health, as an impromptu heal to extend a game or recover from a heavily-damaging turn.
Due to Lord Jaraxxus setting your maximum health to 15, Molten Giant cannot be played when Lord Jaraxxus is at full health for free; his cost-reducing trait treats your maximum health as 15 from the point which Lord Jaraxxus assumes your heroes place in the battle.
