Notes[]

Strategy[]

This card gives you card advantage in the form of taking any class cards from your enemy. Any minion, spell or weapon from their class can be given to the rogue with this card. Due to this the card shines in a control play style and is weak in an aggro one (aggro decks only want cheap cards and playing this card alone is a tempo loss).

Trivia[]

  • This card's art depicts the "Elwynn Burglar" from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game, who in turn is a reference to the Hamburglar, a McDonald's mascot known for stealing hamburgers.
  • The word burgle is an alternative to burglarize, chiefly used in Britain, Australia and New Zealand.[4] Its use in Hearthstone in place of the term normally used in North America is likely intended to provide a more unusual character to the spell.[5][6]
