Desert Camel is a common hunter minion card, from the League of Explorers set.

How to get[]

Two copies of regular Desert Camel are obtained by defeating Rafaam Unleashed, the fourth boss in The League of Explorers's fourth wing, the Hall of Explorers.

As a Wild format card, both regular and golden versions of Desert Camel can also be crafted for the following amounts:

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Desert Camel 40 5
Golden Desert Camel 400 50


  • This card's Battlecry randomly selects a minion card with a base mana cost of 1 from each deck (if any) and puts them into the battlefield. In particular:
    • This card's effect only checks the base mana cost of cards in each player's deck, regardless of cost-modifying effects that are attached to the card (such as through Renounce Darkness) or that will affect the card once in the player's hand (such as Molten Giant or Mana Wraith).
    • If a player's unused deck contains no 1-Cost minion, no minion will be summoned for that player.
    • The friendly minion is put into play first, followed by the enemy minion.[1]

Possible cards[]

The below table lists all collectible 1-cost minions available in Wild format.


By controlling how many and which 1-cost minions the player has in their deck, they can guarantee the outcome of their Desert Camel's Battlecry.

Injured Kvaldir is an excellent minion to put in your deck to be chosen by this card, as its negative Battlecry will not be activated.

Also you could put an opponent's minion such as Zombie Chow into play and destroy it to gain 5 Heath, or perhaps prevent an enemy minion's Battlecry from being activated, such as Sir Finley Mrrgglton.

This card is effective against decks which have no 1-cost minions. The downside may also be reduce if you have area of effect removal like Powershot that is fairly likely to remove the opponent's 1-cost minion anyway.


The Desert Camel is ridden by two minions - one from each hero's forces - which upon the camel's arrival on the battlefield "hop off" and spring into action.[2]
