  • Unlike other handbuff effects, Forlorn Stalker does not have an animation that shows the buff going on the affected minions, nor does it highlight the buffed cards to your opponent. It is unknown whether this is a bug or an intended feature (to prevent revealing information about your hand to your opponent).


This minion is ideal for a Hunter deck focused around Deathrattles. Aside from neutral Deathrattle minions such as Eggnapper or Leper Gnome, there are a number of Hunter-specific minions such as Savannah Highmane and Fiery Bat which can benefit greatly from a +1/+1 boost. Forlorn Stalker's stats are average for its mana cost, which is why there should be at least one Deathrattle minion in your hand. If used with Brann Bronzebeard, this could provide multiple minions with a hefty +2/+2 power-up; if played with a large hand, this can result in totally securing the board within the next two turns as these minions are summoned.


The beasts betrayed me.
For The Eye!


This worgen seems to be a hunter of some kind. Judging by his attack quote, he serves C'Thun, while his effect indicates a special relationship with death.


  • This minion's summoning quote is a reference to Ram Wrangler's summoning quote "The beasts obey me."[1]
