Notes[]

  • This card's Battlecry has two steps:
    • First, it consumes all of your remaining available mana;
    • Then, it gives this minion +1/+1 for each mana spent.
Example: If you have 5 mana and play this card, first you pay its mana cost and then this card's Battlecry consume your remaining 4 mana, resulting in a 5/5 minion.
Example: Playing this minion in conjunction with The League of ExplorersBrann Bronzebeard has no additional effect, since its first Battlecry will consume all of your remaining mana, leaving you with 0 remanining mana for the second Battlecry.

Strategy[]

Because this minion usually can be played every turn, it fits well in most druid decks, in general in "Curve druid" decks that involve gaining mana crystals faster than your opponent (LegacyWild Growth, LegacyNourish, etc.). There you can simply adjust the amount of mana you are going to make available for this minion, by giving yourself another mana crystal the preliminary turn.

Lore[]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Ancients are demigod-like trees. The wisps act in unison with the night elves and serve to strengthen the demigod-like trees known as the Ancients. The ancients were among the first creatures of Azeroth, the first guardians of its life.
