Strategy[edit | edit source]

This minion's poor stats for its cost and requirement of Combo are counterbalanced by its powerful effect similar to Assassinate, leaving an average-sized body on the board in addition to removing an unwanted minion from the field. This can grant huge tempo swings in the owner's favor, and as such, Vilespine Slayer is considered a very good card for any Rogue deck.

Vilespine Slayer makes a very strong combination with Sonya Shadowdancer, allowing you to remove any minion for 1 mana.

Fixed bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Vilespine Slayer can target Sherazin, Seed, even through it is not a minion, and if it has the "Trigger 3" phase, it will revive itself. [1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This card's flavor text is a reference to the Taylor Swift song "Shake it Off".
