Previous availability[]


  • The Battlecry works by taking the minion's current Attack and Health values, and creating an enchantment specifically granting the minion the opposite values.
  • If a minion is damaged, its current Health will become its new Attack, rather than its maximum Health. Its current Attack will then become its both current and maximum Health, and it will no longer be damaged.
  • Swapping stats will incorporate all stat-changing enchantments (ie; buffs and debuffs) into the minion's new stats. This includes both permanent changes (ex: +3 health from a Temple Enforcer), persistent buffs (ie; stat boosts from being Enraged), and temporary "this turn" (ex: -2 attack from Shrinkmeister) effects. For example, a 1/3 minion boosted to 4/3 by Rockbiter Weapon will become a 3/4 minion.
  • Swapped minions with temporary buffs (ex; from an Abusive Sergeant) will not lose stats when the buff expires.
  • Boosts from auras will be incorporated into the new stats then subject to the aura a second time. For example, a player has a 3/1 minion on the board that is temporarily boosted to 4/2 due to the presence of a Stormwind Champion. When swapped its stats will permanently become 2/4 with a further temporary boost to 3/5 due to the Stormwind Champion's aura.
  • For purposes of Enrage mechanics, a minion whose stats are swapped is considered to no longer be wounded and is therefore not enraged. If wounded again the minion will Enrage as normal.
  • Using the Battlecry on a minion with 0 Attack will set the minion's Health to 0, destroying it. This works even when the minion is protected by Divine Shield. This will not work when performing a double-battlecry due to Brann Bronzebeard as the target minion will swap back to its original health before dying.
  • Silencing a minion with swapped stats will return them to their original state.


The Crazed Alchemist is a versatile card that can be used both offensively and defensively. For example, a player can utilize the Crazed Alchemist's Battlecry on their Oasis Snapjaw to deal some unexpected damage, or on zero-Attack minions such as Doomsayer and Nat Pagle as a form of removal.

Crazed Alchemist can also be used in conjunction with Marin the Fox, as it can instantly kill the treasure chest without needing to deal 8 damage to it, it can also serve as a back-up Topsy Turvy in combo decks for when Nerubian Unraveler, Loatheb, or Rebuke is played to prevent the combo.




The Crazed Alchemist resembles the Forsaken Royal Apothecary Society in World of Warcraft.

When people think of witch doctors, they usually don’t think of Forsaken. However, Forsaken are some of the most skilled alchemists on Azeroth, and while they don’t entreat voodoo spirits for help and don’t call their craft “mojo,” they still possess tricks to make their brews especially potent. These Forsaken call themselves apothecaries.
The iconic apothecary is a withered Forsaken standing in a laboratory. Beakers and cauldrons bubble and spew horrible vapors into the air.
