Waxadred is a legendary rogue minion card, from the Descent of Dragons set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Waxadred can be obtained through Descent of Dragons card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Waxadred 1600 400
Golden Waxadred 3200 1600

Note[edit | edit source]

  • Unlike minions whose Deathrattle shuffle itself into your deck like Malorne and Anub'arak, triggering Waxadred's Deathrattle while it's alive will shuffle in Waxadred's Candle without shuffling in Waxadred himself.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Waxadred has powerful stats for his cost, having 1 more Health than Salty Dog. His capability to resummon himself when his Candle is drawn can also prove to be a nuisance for whoever has to go up against him.

Waxadred can be combined with Deathrattle synergy effects like Necrium Blade and Necrium Vial to shuffle in additional Candles, giving you more chances to summon more Waxadreds. When combined with Tak Nozwhisker, you will immediately get his Candle in your hand to summon another Waxadred. In Wild, Shadowcaster and Sonya Shadowdancer can be used to copy more Waxadreds to create more candles at a lower cost. Rogues running a Dragon deck can also make use of Candle Breath to draw Waxadred's Candle faster.

Stowaway can be used to instantly draw Waxadred's Candle.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Your treasure, or your life.
Feed my greed!
I am reborn. Wax, give me life!

Lore[edit | edit source]

Waxadred is unique to Hearthstone. It appears that Waxadred is an artificial dragon made of wax, constructed by King Togwaggle to aid him in battle.
