Lore[edit | edit source]

The Witch's Apprentice was originally an apprentice to Hagatha the Witch but was turned into a frog when "things went a little bit wrong".[1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • According to Senior Game Designer Peter Whalen, Witch's Apprentice is an example of a card where, as soon as the developers received the card art, they knew what the card's stats were going to be — a 0/1 Taunt minion, mirroring the Frog created by Hex — leaving them to figure out a card effect that made sense in the context.[1]
