  • Deathwing, Mad Aspect attacks minions in a random order. In particular, he can attack a non-Taunt minion before a Taunt minion.
  • Deathwing, Mad Aspect does not attack minions summoned in the middle of his Battlecry (for example, by Deathrattle effects).
  • If Deathwing, Mad Aspect dies during his Battlecry, he stops attacking.
  • Deathwing, Mad Aspect attacks once per minion on the board. If his attack would be intercepted (such as by LegacyNoble Sacrifice or Mean Streets of GadgetzanMayor Noggenfogger), he will not attack his initial target again.
  • Deathwing, Mad Aspect's attacks can be redirected to your opponent's hero with Mayor Noggenfogger.
  • Deathwing, Mad Aspect cannot attack on the turn he is played, even if he's given Rush or Charge.
  • If Deathwing, Mad Aspect transforms during his Battlecry (such as with Ashes of OutlandInfectious Sporeling), the transformed Deathwing will keep attacking. This is because Deathwing's Battlecry only gets interrupted if he dies, not if he transforms.[1]


Deathwing, Mad Aspect is a powerful minion with enough stats to clean out the entire board of mid to low-stat minions. While he can take out most minions due to his very high Attack, dealing with multiple higher level threats will often leave him critically injured or dead before he finishes. However, since his method of clearing the board involves attacking, Divine Shield and Reborn minions are protected from his attacks, high-attack minions will ensure he does not survive the next turn, and a Poisonous minion can bring his rampage to a premature end. Keep in mind that Deathwing, Mad Aspect will also attack allies as well, so unless you're prepared for Deathwing to kill your entire board (or if you have no board presence), be very cautious when playing him. LegacyCommanding Shout may also be used to keep Deathwing, Mad Aspect and your board of minions alive, although they can easily be removed by Mage's LegacyFireblast or Rogue's LegacyFan of Knives.

You can use other cards to cheat out Deathwing and take advantage of his 12/12 stats like Rise of ShadowsThe Boom Reaver or Kobolds & CatacombsWoecleaver, but it's just as effective as cheating out Deathwing's other counterparts since they have the same statline, with the latter having a powerful Deathrattle, however Mad Aspect’s powerful battlecry should still be considered, as it makes it a less painful draw, especially in less dragon centered decks.




This card likely represents Madness of Deathwing, the Destroyer's last stand in the Maelstrom and the final boss of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
A warped mass of molten hatred and unfathomable power, this formless, mindless horror cannot be stopped. Whatever was left of Neltharion the Earth-Warder is long gone, his mind and soul corrupted and devoured by his Old God masters. All this monstrous being desires is destruction, annihilation, and the end of all things.


  • Deathwing, Mad Aspect's original summoning quote, used in the pre-release, was "I am the end of all things! I am the Cataclysm!" The line was changed when Descent of Dragons was released for unknown reasons.
  • Deathwing, Mad Aspect's entrance music comes from Deathwing's Last Stand.
