Strategy[edit | edit source]
Fiery War Axe is a decent source of early damage for warrior decks; for 3 Mana it can be used against heroes as 6 damage over 2 turns, or it can be used to clear early minions. Killing minions is almost always the superior tactic with Fiery War Axe, especially in the early game.
While the Warrior class has plenty of weapon choices that either have additional effects (such as Blood Razor or Brass Knuckles) or have higher damage output (such as Gorehowl or Arcanite Reaper), at 3 Mana Fiery War Axe is one of Warrior's cheapest weapon option (of the Classic set), making it useful for decks with cards that utilize and upgrade weapons such as Phantom Freebooter, Forge of Souls and Hobart Grapplehammer.
For cheap early-game removal, Warrior has plenty of options, such as Slam and Cleave, so when including Fiery War Axe it's ideal to have a deck that will benefit more from its Weapon status or in extremely aggressive decks.
Lore[edit | edit source]
