Glinda Crowskin is a legendary warlock minion card, from the The Witchwood set.

How to get[]

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Glinda Crowskin 1600 400
Golden Glinda Crowskin 3200 1600

Strategy[]

Glinda has a very strong effect in zoo decks. With Glinda, you can play a lot of self-modifying cost cards, such as Happy Ghouls or Sea Giants, until your board is full. Gnomeferatu is also an option after you dropped Glinda before one turn. At 10 mana you put on 5 2/3's and you also burn your opponent 5 cards. However, her initial high cost makes her difficult to play in these decks.

Glinda is generally not suitable for control decks, since many common minions run in control decks cost too much and cannot use Glinda's Echo effect, and the options are more limited if you want a minion that can be played on the same turn.

Minions affected by Glinda do in fact count towards Mistwraith, if a Rogue is so lucky to find her.

Cheap Magnetic minions work quite well with Glinda, allowing them to Magnetize and stack up more stats in a turn without worrying about board space.

Glinda is an important piece in Mogu Cultist combo decks. With Glinda already in play or by discounting her mana cost with Tome of Origination, you can play 6 Mogu Cultists then kill off Glinda and play the last Echo-copied Mogu Cultist to summon Highkeeper Ra.

Lore[]

Glinda is unique to Hearthstone. She is one of the witches that are cursing and twisting the forest, transforming the forest's creatures into creepy monsters.[1]

The ancient forest surrounding Gilneas was never entirely safe, even before it was cursed and transformed into the Witchwood, and entities like Glinda Crowskin are the reason why. For as long as anyone in Gilneas can recall, there have been tales of a sinister crone in the woods who can grant one’s fondest desire—for the modest price of a human heart.
It’s very likely that Glinda Crowskin is the mastermind behind the “Crowskin cult” that has sunk its claws into the city’s underbelly. Her deluded followers believe that Hagatha will grant them power in exchange for devotion. They break Greymane’s curfew, sneaking into the forest in the dead of night to drink strange concoctions and perform mysterious rites. More disturbing still: somehow, more of the cultists return to the city after these nightly sojourns than had snuck into the woods in the first place.[2]

Trivia[]

  • In Patch 16.0.0.37060, the Echo mechanic was changed; although it was not a card change, Glinda Crowskin was eligible for full-disenchanting refund for two weeks due to its popularity and being one of the core cards of SN1P-SN4P Warlock.
  • Glinda Crowskin is an example of "top down" card design, as the developers had a specific fantasy they wanted to capture and then expressed that through the card design. They started with the legend of Baba Yaga, a supernatural witch-like being from Slavic folklore. An earlier version of the card shuffled Glinda's heart into the player's deck when she died, allowing the player to resummon her when they drew her heart, expressing the story of an immortal witch in the woods. While it was cool to have an "infinite minion", this version of Glinda was not particularly fun from the gameplay side, and so she later shifted into being a card that makes the player's cheap minions really powerful.[1] This ability would later be introduced with Waxadred in Descent of Dragons.
