Notes

  • For general information how modifying cost works and interacts with other cards, see Mana cost.
  • Embiggen does not increase mana cost of minion cards that cost more than 10 while they are in deck (For example, Snowfury Giant). Instead, their cost are the same as their base cost (until they are drawn, for self-modifying cards).

Strategy

Embiggen is a 0-mana equivalent to Surrender to Madness, giving every minion in your deck +2/+2 at the cost of a mana-related drawback. Instead of losing your own Mana Crystals, Embiggen causes all buffed minions to cost 1 mana more. While this may be a necessary price to pay in order to get more power during the game, keep in mind that your spells won't have their prices raised, and they can easily be used to balance out the drawback such as raising your mana (such as using Innervate or Wild Growth) or cheating the buffed minions out (such as Oaken Summons or Strength in Numbers).
