Excavated Evil is a rare priest spell card, from the League of Explorers set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Two copies of regular Excavated Evil are obtained by completing Uldaman, the second wing of The League of Explorers.

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

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Excavated Evil 100 20
Golden Excavated Evil 800 100

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This spell has two steps:
    • First, it deals its area of effect damage to all minions, queuing and resolving triggers in order of play (see damage for details);
    • Then, the card is shuffled into the opponent's deck.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

While at first this spell appears to be a worse version of Hellfire, Priest however can use cards like Circle of Healing to heal his damaged minions or Thoughtsteal to have the potential to add another copy to his hand. There is also the possibility that your opponent will refuse to use this spell, wasting their draw.

Your match can be prolonged due to its effect, just remember that by the 50th round the game will end in a tie.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The flavour text is a reference to the ending of the movie Time Bandits.
