Deathcharger is an uncollectible neutral minion card. It is also a pool 1 active treasure in Duels.

How to get[]

Deathcharger can be drafted and added to a Duels deck after round 2, 5, 7, 9, 11 and 13.

Deathcharger is uncollectible and unavailable in any other game modes.

Strategy[]

This card is almost never worth picking. As a treasure, the other options are guaranteed to be better.

Duels treasures are significantly above curve and usually board impacting. Were this a collectable card, it is unlikely players would even include it in their decks as deck power continues to grow through the run. This card is only useful in the very beginning of the run, and even then not significantly as it is only slightly above curve.

Against Deathcharger[]

It is generally better to deal damage to the Deathcharger than the hero, as the hero will take the same amount of damage and lose a 2/3 minion.

Appears in[]

In addition to being a treasure in Duels, Deathcharger also appears in the following boss encounters:

Lore[]

In World of Warcraft, Deathchargers serve as the mounts of death knights.

History[]

Deathcharger was originally intended to be a collectible reward from the Curse of Naxxramas adventure. It was originally designed as a 5 Mana 3/5 minion with "Charge. Deathrattle: Deal 2 damage to the enemy hero."[1][2]
