Notes[]

Strategy[]

A versatile low cost minion - a 3/2 with Stealth can often trade into higher-cost minions, and the 2/1 with Charge (similar to Bluegill Warrior) can deal burst damage as required.

As both forms are Beasts, this card has good synergy with other Druid cards such as Wildwalker and Druid of the Fang.

Lore[]

While Warcraft features many druid sects, such as the Druids of the Claw, Druids of the Flame and Druids of the Fang, the Druids of the Saber are original to Hearthstone.

Little is therefore known about these druids, although they clearly appear to be centred upon transforming into saber-toothed cats, specifically lions and panthers.

Trivia[]

  • The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Betrayal of the Guardian" series, for the card Elistari Silverwind.
  • Since this minion's Choose One effect normally replaces it with one of the two Beast forms, its regular attack and death sounds are only heard if the minion enters play through a summon or put into battlefield effect (such as Alarm-o-Bot), causing it to skip the transformation.
  • This is the only transforming Druid card where the two forms have different names than the original card.
