Gloom Stag is an epic druid minion card, from The Witchwood set. It was once in the Hall of Fame set from April 9, 2019 to March 30, 2021.

How to get[]

Gloom Stag can be obtained through The Witchwood card packs, or through crafting.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Gloom Stag 40 5
Golden Gloom Stag 400 50


Gloom Stag can become a very powerful 4/8 Taunt minion for 5 mana, outstripping cards such as Nesting Roc and Fen Creeper for stats for a much harder limiting factor.

As an alternative, this can be run in a deck with Master Oakheart as one of the few useful 2-Attack minions available to Druid on board, and to thin your deck a bit more. Although it will lose the buff, you could also consider running this in a Taunt Druid deck using cards such as Witching Hour to resummon it, as the Taunt is not part of the conditional battlecry. You can also play synergistic cards such as Druid of the Fang, Virmen Sensei and Knight of the Wild.

Commentary: As they were complementary to the Even-Odd mechanic that Baku and Genn introduced, Gloom Stag, Black Cat, Glitter Moth, and Murkspark Eel will also join the Hall of Fame.
