How to get[edit | edit source]
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The final mana cost of the spell cast is used to determine if Gazlowe's triggered effect triggers or not, thus including any cost-modification effects (such as Far Sight, Preparation and Loatheb).
- Example: If a spell with a base mana cost of 1 is played while its cost is increased by Loatheb to 6, it will not trigger Gazlowe, while a spell with a base mana cost of 3 played immediately after Preparation will trigger Gazlowe.
- This card's triggered effect generates a card randomly selected from all collectible Mech minions, regardless of class. 
- As of Descent of Dragons, there are 117 possible Mech minions, giving each a 0.84% chance of being generated.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Spare Parts are all 1 mana spells. You can use minions like Mech-Bear-Cat and Mechanical Yeti to generate them. Gazlowe would fit in a paladin deck, because of the paladin's high number of 1-mana spells, such as Noble Sacrifice, among the other Paladin secrets. Several shaman decks utilize Earth Shock and Lightning Bolt, allowing for synergy with Gazlowe.
In terms of specific class cards, all classes have at least one 1 mana spell, such as Whirlwind, Mirror Image, and Mortal Coil. In terms of class-specific cards, the Paladin, with 9 1 mana spells, the majority of which are utility effects and secrets, allows Gazlowe to work well. However, Gazlowe is difficult to make a functional deck around, as it bears the burden of needing all the 1 mana spells that class has, and many spare part cards in order to gain full value. As a result, decks centred around Gazlowe often result in gimmicky and ineffective decks.
Gazlowe often needs to have the spells played as soon as he enters play, in order to gain value. Cards which are frequently used, such as Desperate Measures, Twin Slice and Tome of Intellect are best used to fit into decks with Gazlowe in them.
