Notes[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Aya is an easy fit into any Jade Golem deck. Not only does she boost your Jade Golems by +2/+2, she's also a formidable threat with a strong Battlecry and Deathrattle as long as you've played at least two Jade Golem cards before her. Even if you haven't, any Jade Golems you play after she dies will be strong on their own.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Golems are a girl's best friend!
You die now! *giggles*
You're no fun! *cries*

Lore[edit | edit source]

Aya Blackpaw (far right), leader of the Jade Lotus.
"Aya Blackpaw is the last living heir of the wealthy Blackpaw family. Using the Gadgetzan Museum of Ancient Artifacts as her headquarters, and shrouding her activities behind her family’s reputation as generous philanthropists, she issues orders to us through her loyal bodyguard and servant, White Eyes. She is the true leader of the Jade Lotus.
Aya is youthful, energetic, and seemingly impulsive. That is a mask; in truth she is calculating, ruthless, and as hard as the jade we steal for her. Crucially, young Aya has the unique ability to create Jade Golems, and she is the source of the trinkets that so many of us carry. How she came by this incredible power is a mystery, though I swear I have seen her communing with the spirit of a Mogu king I could not name. Such a being must be most ancient indeed.
However it was that she came by her gift, Aya has successfully created an army of Jade Golems. What task she intends for them, and for us, is a mystery . . . but the Jade Lotus will be ready."[1]

Aya is unique to Hearthstone. She "comes in a small package", but is quite deadly and cunning. She wields a spiked chain with an emerald tip.[2]
