Strategy[]

Former Champ is essentially a cheaper version of Big-Time Racketeer, offering a total of 6/6 stats for 5 mana, split between the 1/1 Champ and the 5/5 Hotshot. Overall it carries good value and is useful in Evolve Shaman, as players can use the 5/5 Hotshot and evolve the 1/1 Champ with cards like Unstable Evolution, Thrall, Deathseer, or Big Bad Voodoo. Players of Evolve Shaman have to be careful that they don't evolve their cheaper minions into Former Champ by mistake, as it is essentially useless without its Battlecry. Former Champ can also be played with the Shudderwock in order to summon a free 5/5 once Shudderwock is on the field, but this is fairly uncommon.

Trivia[]

  • Together, the summon quotes of Former Champ and Hotshot form a famous quote by American boxer Muhammad Ali: "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee."
  • The flavour text is reference to the card Undertaker, an infamously powerful minion from Curse of Naxxramas.
