Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The minion buffed by Velen's Chosen gain +1 Spell Damage as a permanent enchantment.
  • Velen's Chosen's enchantment stacks with other sources of Spell Damage.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Northshire Cleric is a solid target, escaping the range of Frostbolt or Fiery War Axe, and allowing the Cleric to kill a minion by surprise, then heal to build card advantage. Auchenai Soulpriest will be pushed safely out of range of a 5-damage Circle of Healing. Echoing Ooze is another very good buff target since it will summon a second 3/6 Ooze with +1 Spell Damage at the end of the turn, meaning that if both Oozes survive, next turn your Holy Smites and Holy Novas will do double damage to all enemies.

Do not feel compelled to use the Spell Damage because the stat boost is efficient without it. For a deck heavy on copying effects like Mindgames, it allows minions to trade favourably with their counterparts. The extra health granted to a minion works well with the Divine Spirit/Inner Fire combo.

Lore[edit | edit source]

This card's title refers to Prophet Velen.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The flavor text for the card makes a reference to The Simpsons. In one episode, Lisa Simpson gives Ralph Wiggum a Valentines Day card that says "I Choo-choo-choose you!" with a picture of a train.
  • The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Worldbreaker" series, for the card Vigil of the Light.
