Strategy[edit | edit source]

Despicable Dreadlord is useful to clear low cost/low health minions very easily. In some cases, you can simply leave a enemy minion's health at 1 and use the rest of your minions to attacking the enemy hero, and use the Dreadlord to destroy it.

Playing two Despicable Dreadlord allows you to deal 2 damage at the end of each turn, which is much more effective.

Should this minion not be killed, it can produce havoc to decks that have a lot of low mana cost minions such as Zoolock and Pirate Warrior. It is especially effective as a tech card against aggressive paladin decks.

However, it can go wrong if the opponent has cards with effects that trigger when they take damage, such as Acolyte of Pain and Frothing Berserker.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Nathrezim (called dread lords or dreadlords in the Common tongue) are intelligent and cunning demons who usually act as intelligence agents, interrogators and emissaries for the fiery lords of the Legion, notably Kil'jaeden, as well as tacticians and lieutenants upon the field of battle in time of war. While they are powerful foes on the battlefield, they prefer to turn nations against each other through manipulation and guile. The nathrezim are merciless villains who feed upon the energies of mortal creatures. They utilize terror and subterfuge - often turning brother against brother as whole worlds fall before their dark influence. They are known to be extremely manipulative and masters of trickery; they sometimes refer to themselves as thal'kituun in their language, meaning "the unseen guests".
During the Third War, some of them served as the Lich King's jailors, on the behest of Kil'jaeden, and commanded the Plague of Undeath and the Scourge that swept through Lordaeron.
