Strategy[]

Crypt Lord's main strength is its health, increasing for every minion you summon. It works well with aggressive Druid decks, protecting other low-cost minions. Journey to Un'GoroLiving Mana or Knights of the Frozen ThroneSpreading Plague combo with Crypt Lord as they can mass summon minions effectively, increasing its health. It has similar effects to Whispers of the Old GodsDarkshire Councilman, but gaining 1 health rather than 1 attack.

Though it has one attack for a taunt, the amount of health it can offer can survive multiple hits from enemy minions or spells and makes it harder to clear out. Compare and contrast to Journey to Un'GoroTar Creeper, a similar early-game taunt which offers higher attack on the opponent's turn, in exchange for passing up the health gain potential.
