Strategy[]

Big Ol' Whelp has decent stats for its cost while offering card draw. This can be seen as a much better version of Gnomish Inventor as it has +3/+1 and also draws a card for just one mana more, while also having Dragon synergy. This allows you to put a minion your opponent can't ignore without losing any card advantage.

In Wild, this card directly competes with Azure Drake, which loses 1/1 but has Spell Damage. Generally, Big Ol' Whelp is better for Midrange builds, while Azure Drake's Spell Damage is better for Control decks.

Trivia[]

  • This card's flavor text uses two internet slang terms relating to largeness. "Chonker" refers to pudgy animals (particularly cats), while "absolute unit" is a meme spawned by a Twitter post of a large hotelier standing next to the Queen of England.
