Strategy[edit | edit source]

Revolving around minion synergy, Wisps of the Old Gods is best in a deck designed to make use of multiple minions. The main druid synergy card for this is Savage Roar, usually aiming to set up a one turn kill using a fairly large board of buffed minions. The flexibility of this spell is that it can be used either to set up a Savage Roar-type play on the next turn, or to buff an already healthy board. Even more effectively, it can be comboed with Fandral Staghelm or Addled Grizzly to buff the Wisps to 2/2 or 3/3 minions.

In terms of general play, this card's first option can be very powerful if your opponent does not have AoE spells ready to counter it. If the Wisps survive to the next turn, a Savage Roar can give them enough attack to win the game outright. The spell's second option can be used in a Savage Roar deck to further (and permanently) buff the druid's minions, most useful in a deck that focuses on developing a well-populated board.

With a specific goal in mind, Cenarius or Onyxia are almost always superior, serving in place of Wisps of the Old Gods' first and second effects: for 2 extra mana Cenarius not only gives a +2/+2 buff to the player's minions but also summons a 5/8 minion, while Onyxia summons an 8/8 in addition to a board full of 1/1 Whelps. Wisps of the Old Gods however excels at diversity, allowing the player to choose between the two effects.

Lore[edit | edit source]

This appears to represent a corruption of Dark Wispers, with the minions summoned likewise corrupted Wisps.
