How to get
|Golden Forbidden Words||800||100|
This card acts as a more costly, but more flexible, version of Shadow Word: Pain and Shadow Word: Death. However, if you plan right, you can combo this card with Lazul's Scheme to reduce a minion's Attack to 0 and then kill it, all using 0 Mana.
As Shadow Word: Pain can only kill minions with 3 or less Attack and costs 2 Mana, in most situations Forbidden Words will have superior value; while it will cost more to kill a 3-Attack minion and an equal amount to kill a 2-Attack minion, it will cost less to kill a 1 or 0-Attack minion. This, in combination with its ability to kill higher-power minions in more dire situations, provides it a superior level of flexibility, making it a stronger choice than Shadow Word: Pain in many, if not most, situations.
- This card's art depicts Madame Lazul.
