As birds of ill omen, these crows often summon Doomsayers.
How to get[edit | edit source]

|Golden Vex Crow||400||50|
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Vex Crow is best used in decks with large amounts of cheap spells. Its effect, generating board presence and having potential to snowball, fits best aggro or midrange decks. Because of these, it's best used in Tempo Mage.
