Strategy[]

This minion has rather poor stats, but its Battlecry allows you to reuse an old weapon while avoiding paying extra mana to equip it, giving aggressive Warrior decks more chances to push out damage. To get the most out of this card, it's best to run weapons with high stats or has effects that activate on attack, Deathrattles, or Spellbursts. Descent of DragonsAncharrr is an obvious choice weapon, as are other weapons like Saviors of UldumLivewire Lance, Rise of ShadowsWrenchcalibur, and LegacyArcanite Reaper.

Other classes can use Hoard Pillager to reequip key weapons of their own. Shamans can use it for extra use of Galakrond's AwakeningThe Fist of Ra-den or Kobolds & CatacombsThe Runespear. Druids can get an extra Kobolds & CatacombsTwig of the World Tree to refresh their mana. Paladins can swing with extra Truesilver Champions or the LegacyAshbringer. Demon Hunters can reuse powerful, active effect weapons, or just high attack weapons like Scholomance AcademyMarrowslicer or Demon Hunter InitiateFlamereaper. Every class can use it for another One Night in KarazhanAtiesh or another Scholomance AcademySphere of Sapience.

Hoard Pillager should not be used in Rogue, due to the large chance of re-equipping a LegacyWicked Knife.
