Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Forked Lightning can be cast and will function if there is only one enemy minion on the board. The enemy minion takes 2 damage.
  • Forked Lightning deals damage to both affected minions before queuing and resolving triggers.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Can be very useful if the opponent has a lot of low health minions, and you don't need the extra mana next turn.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
