Strategy[edit | edit source]

Since Violet Spellwing reliably creates a cheap spell, it's perfect for cycling through your deck with cards like Gadgetzan Auctioneer and Stargazer Luna, and activating Chenvaala, Mana Cyclone, or Dune Sculptor. It also works well with Elemental Allies as a cheap Elemental that can easily be summoned at any point.

Outside of synergies, Violet Spellwing compares unfavourably to Babbling Book since it generates the spell far slower and doesn't have any highroll potential.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The Violet Spellwing is a flying mount that was rewarded to players who completed the Blood of a Titan quest, available from defeating Argus the Unmaker on Heroic or Mythic difficulty during the Legion expansion. Its mount description refers to it as a gift from the Council of Six, the Kirin Tor's ruling conclave.
