Strategy[edit | edit source]

Wicked Skeleton is best played when there are a lot of minions and you or opponent have low health minions that could attack and hopefully destroy each other. Note this also applies to your minions. It gains effectiveness when at least 2 minions trade and kill each other in one turn, which then it gains more value for its mana cost.

AoE damage and board clears also help buff the Wicked Skeleton. Ideally, the best time to play this is after a Doomsayer wipes the board.

However, this card is very difficult to get value from. Chillwind Yeti will almost always be a stronger card. You can't guarantee that your opponent will play minions, or that your own minions will be destroyed on your turn. Even when comboed with board clears, most board clears cost more than 6 Mana or are situational.
