Strategy[edit | edit source]

Webweave's best use is clearing away two large minions. It can ideally be seen as two Assassinates for the same cost as one, but it takes a turn before you can use them. However, your opponent can also remove the spiders before you can attack, either with spells or less desirable minions, or block them with multiple Taunt minions.

Keep in mind that Druid lacks strong removal options, especially in Standard, so this could be a viable choice.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Webweave's flavor text is a reference to a famous line from Walter Scott's 1808 epic poem Marmion: "Oh, what a tangled web we weave / When first we practise to deceive!"
  • During development, Webweave was originally costed at 4 mana until near the end of final design.[1] According to Dean Ayala, the card was nerfed to 5 mana because "it was too generic use, powerful in almost any game situation, and too good at something Druids tend to lack".[2] In a worst-case scenario, the 4-mana Webweave often destroyed at least one minion, and it almost always destroyed 2.[3] Webweave was not intended to be an extremely powerful card, which it might have been at 4 mana,[4] but rather to serve as an option for druids to "stretch for removal if they feel like they need it".[5]
