A lateral upgrade over Mutate, granting two more "evolutions" for two more mana.

Explosive Evolution has synergy with Zentimo and Electra Stormsurge, bundling multiple huge evolution effects on one card.

In Wild, Explosive Evolution compares poorly to Unstable Evolution, which offers a similar effect at far greater flexibility.


  • The minion being evolved in the artwork appears to be a male Goblin Lackey.
