Lore[edit | edit source]
- The orcs are one of the most prolific races on Azeroth. Originally hailing from the harsh, alien world of Draenor, the orcs were once a noble shamanistic people cultivating a mighty tribal society that was centered around survival, regulating themselves through ritualized combat and personal honor. Tragically betrayed by one of their spiritual leaders and delivered into the hands of the Burning Legion, the orc clans fell deep into demonic enslavement and were led into Azeroth as an unholy vanguard of the Legion meant to destroy everything in their path.
- Yet, the shamanistic tradition of the orcs managed to rekindle from the ashes, and a young shaman by the name of Thrall arose to become a living symbol of his people's true identity in their darkest hour, causing many of the orcs to rise up against their demon masters and break free from their control. Several of the orcish clans that had existed on Draenor since ancient times reemerged and were united under Thrall's guidance, and the shaman warchief led the orcs out of the Eastern Kingdoms they had been forced to invade and into the continent of Kalimdor, in order to begin a new existence for themselves and their newfound allies. There, they founded the nation of Durotar and the great city of Orgrimmar.
- Today, Thrall's orcs are a redeemed people who have reclaimed their destiny from dark influences, fighting no longer for the sake of destruction but for their very right of survival in their adopted world.

|Name / Desc||Rarity||Type||Subtype||Class||Cost||Atk||HP||Description|
At the end of your turn, add a random spell that costs (2) or less to your hand.
Taunt Grunting is what his father did and his father before that. It's more than just a job.
Your other minions have +1 Attack. "That's a 50 DKP minus!"
Battlecry: Summon a 1/1 Boar. Someone did mess with Tuskerr once. ONCE.
Your Charge minions have +1 Attack. The Warsong clan is such drama. It's really not worth it to become a commander.
Charge Orcish raiders ride wolves because they are well adapted to harsh environments, and because they are soft and cuddly.
Charge The Kor'kron are the elite forces of Garrosh Hellscream. Let's just say you don't want to run into these guys while wearing a blue tabard.
|Thief of Futures||Free||Minion||General||Rogue||4||4||3|
Battlecry: Add a copy of the top card of your opponent's deck to your hand.
Battlecry: Gain +1/+1 for each other friendly minion on the battlefield. The Frostwolves are locked in combat with the Stormpike Expedition over control of Alterac Valley. Every attempt at peace-talks has ended with Captain Galvangar killing the mediator.
|Master of Realities||Free||Minion||General||Shaman||6||5||7|
After you summon a minion, transform it into a random minion that costs (2) more.

Battlecry: Silence adjacent minions. Don't make her raise her "shush"!
Battlecry: Give a friendly minion +2 Attack. Lance Carrier is an obscure entry level position in orcish armies. A mystery, since orcs don't generally use lances.
After your hero attacks, summon a 1/1 Pirate. His taste in soup is criminal.
Taunt. Battlecry: Give your C'Thun Taunt (wherever it is). "Ok C'Thun, repeat after me: 'Your mother was a hamster.'"
Battlecry: Give your other minions +1 Health. As a kid, she fought with rocks. Now she fights with ROCK!
|Earthen Ring Farseer||Common||Minion||General||Any||3||3||3|
Battlecry: Restore 3 Health. He can see really far, and he doesn't use a telescope like those filthy pirates.
Taunt He loves his job and would do it for free! (But don't tell his boss!)
Inspire: Give your weapon +1 Attack. "Four out of three orcs struggle with math." - Angry Zurge
Windfury He's stationed in the Hellfire Peninsula, but he's hoping for a reassignment closer to Orgrimmar, or really anywhere the ground is less on fire.
Battlecry: Equip a 2/2 weapon. 50% off fist weapons, limited time only!
Battlecry: If you're holding a Dragon, deal 3 damage. He got his name when he gave Blackwing some comic books and rock & roll records.
What did the pits ever do to you?
Battlecry: Remove 1 Durability from your opponent's weapon. Every pirate uses the same four digits to access Automated Gold Dispensers. It's called the "Pirate's Code".
After you play a Secret, deal 2 damage to all enemy minions. Ancient pandaren proverb: He who is without secrets lacks flak.
Battlecry: Discover a Hunter, Paladin or Warrior card. "Naw, naw. You're talkin' about Grime BOULEVARD. I ain't know nuthin' 'bout that."
Battlecry: Deal 4 damage to HIMSELF. He claims it is an old war wound, but we think he just cut himself shaving.
Taunt Whenever this minion deal damage, gain that much Armor. The rent is cheap and she passes the savings onto YOU!
Battlecry: Give your C'Thun +2/+2 (wherever it is). If it's dead, shuffle it into your deck. "Hello, is Doom there? No? Can I leave a message?"
|Fel Orc Soulfiend||Epic||Minion||General||Any||3||3||7|
At the start of your turn, deal 2 damage to this minion. "Doc says the persistent burning sensation in my soul is probably just an ulcer."

Battlecry: Summon a random Beast. It's never Huffer.

Battlecry: If you're holding a Dragon, destroy a Legendary minion. Rend believes he is the True Warchief of the Horde and he keeps editing the wikipedia page for "Warchief of the Horde" to include his picture.
Costs (1) less for each friendly Pirate. What's more boss than riding a parrot with a jawbone for a shoulderpad while wielding a giant hook-lance-thing and wearing a pirate hat? NOTHING.
Battlecry: Add a 5/5 Horror to your hand. Teach it two Shaman spells. Rafaam mainly enjoys working with Hagatha because she never laughs at Dr. Boom's jokes.
Has +6 Attack while damaged. Grommash drank the tainted blood of Mannoroth, dooming the orcs to green skin and red eyes! Maybe not his best decision.
|Hagatha the Witch||Legendary||Hero card||Shaman||8|
Battlecry: Deal 3 damage to all minions. Curse-bringer, tree-twister, mother of wretched things…Hanzo main.

Destroy all minions except one. (chosen randomly) Do you know the first rule of Brawl Club?
|Call to Arms||Epic||Spell||Paladin||5|
