Generated Hero Power[]




Hagatha's Battlecry is a strong AoE board clear. It does affect your own minions as well, so be careful. The Battlecry can be replicated by The WitchwoodShudderwock for further usage, but once again be careful about the double-edged effect, especially due to the random order of Shudderwock's mimicking.

Hagatha's passive hero power gives up the board presence of the shaman's totems, in return for constant and unpredictable value. Random Shaman spells generally include burst damage and finishers (LegacyBloodlust, Windfury, LegacyLava Burst) or board clears and strong removal (LegacyHex, LegacyLightning Storm, Journey to Un'GoroVolcano), among more specialised utility. However, there is also a risk of getting dead spells like Knights of the Frozen ThroneIce Fishing or LegacyTotemic Might; in this cases these spells should be played with excess mana. Most of the randomness can be avoided as more minions are played, allowing you to average out for a variety of effects. In longer games, keeping low cost minions until Hagatha is played first can be important.

One of the risks of this card is overdrawing cards thanks to her Hero Power. Playing Hagatha with a hand of several minions can often lead to your hand being flooded, with each minion played requiring a spell afterwards in order to free space. It can get worse with minions or spells that draw or generate additional cards, or being forced to Overload and limit what you can play next turn. Try to play Hagatha only when you have a medium-sized hand or a few spells you can reliably drop.

For the lore of this card, see Hagatha the Witch (Disambiguation).


  • Hagatha was first teased at the end of The Witchwood announcement video, with Dave Kosak fearing the sudden appearance of "Hagatha the Witch" and mentioning "We cannot make that card" twice with a frightened expression while Ben Brode says that "It's too OP" before the three of them (Dave Kosak, Ben Brode and Ben Thompson) run away in fear. The camera they dropped then focuses on the Hagatha the Witch hero card, whose sinister laughter is heard at the end of the video.
  • Hagatha originated from a concept drawn by Jomaro Kindred, who has described the character as "a lot of things I like and a lot of things that I'm afraid of at the same time".[1]
  • Hagatha's mirror greeting refers to the opening line of T.S. Eliot's The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.
  • Hagatha's flavor text references the Overwatch character Hanzo, as well as the "Hanzo main" meme.
  • Hagatha's name is likely a reference to the Marvel comics character Agatha Harkness.
