|Golden Emperor Cobra||800||100|
Summoned by[edit | edit source]
As well as being collected in decks, this card can also be summoned by the following cards.
Previous availability[edit | edit source]
- Regular Emperor Cobra could also be obtained as a first-time reward for first time reaching Silver 10 and Gold 10 in Ranked mode from April 1, 2020 to March 25, 2021 (or as a reward of Climbing the Ranks (2/10) and (4/10) achievements).
Strategy[edit | edit source]
While the Emperor Cobra's stats are nothing impressive, it possesses the Poisonous ability: any minion damaged by it is destroyed. Abilities like the shaman spell Ancestral Healing or the druid spell Mark of the Wild, or minions that give other minions taunt like Sunfury Protector, Houndmaster or Defender of Argus can give you a snake that will instantly kill any attacker. Even the mighty Deathwing is not safe from the Emperor Cobra. Using Emperor Cobra with Tundra Rhino allows for instant removal, unless the targeted minion has Divine Shield.
