How to get
|Golden Gurubashi Chicken||400||50|
Similarly to Angry Chicken, if its Overkill effect triggers, Gurubashi Chicken becomes extremely powerful for its cost. However, this requires a lot of setup, as the Chicken must have its attack buffed in order to overkill a minion and a health buff in order to survive the attack, and it must not be removed on the opponent's turn. This makes its effect much harder to use than Angry Chicken, as the latter only needs to have its health buffed and survive a nominal amount of damage.
Windfury can be helpful, allowing Gurubashi Chicken to use the attack buff right away after killing a minion. Bestial Wrath provides Immune and an attack bonus, making it easier to trigger this card's effect, and The Beast Within can buff the Chicken without spending its attack.
In most cases, the expenditure of effort to get the effect going is not worth the payoff, and Gurubashi Chicken is usually only played for comedic effect.
- Gurubashi Chicken is highly reminiscent of Angry Chicken from the Classic set, with Peter Whalen describing Gurubashi Chicken as "the angriest chicken".
- At one point during development, Team 5 tried out a version of Gurubashi Chicken that read: "Overkill: Gain +10/+10". This design only lasted for about one game in playtesting; in the words of Peter Whalen, "Turns out we can't do that. That's actually just insane".
- Patch 188.8.131.52845 (2018-11-29): Added.
