Strategy[]

Fireguard Destroyer is a variable card with a strong RNG component. At its minimum, it is a 4/6 for 4 mana + 1 Overload, which is barely efficient; but at its best, it is a 7/6 for 4 + 1, which is extremely efficient. Overall, Fireguard Destroyer is actually mana efficient (including the Overload) 75% of the time (anything but the minimum 1 Attack boost). However, the maximum 4 Attack boost makes it susceptible to LegacyBig Game Hunter. A good Turn 4 follow-up to LegacyUnbound Elemental. While Whispers of the Old GodsFlamewreathed Faceless has the same cost but higher stats, it overloads one less Mana Crystal compared to it.

Synergizes poorly with NaxxramasReincarnate and LegacyAncestral Spirit since they wipe the Attack boost.

Fireguard Destroyers are hostile elementals found in Blackrock Depths.

Trivia[]

  • This card's flavor text humorously describes LegacyRagnaros the Firelord interviewing Fire Elementals to find those worthy of becoming Fireguard Destroyers. This is particularly ironic considering the Destroyers are typically weaker than the Fire Elementals, and lack their powerful Battlecry.
