Notes[]

  • The minion that is damaged by Infectious Sporeling must not die in order to transform into an Infectious Sporeling.

Strategy[]

Infectious Sporeling is a solid earlygame choice, serving as a soft Taunt due to its effect, which provides a pseudo-Silence effect. Although it struggles in the mid/lategame, usually you can bait out your opponent's removal with this minion as they will want to prevent it from transforming their bigger minions.

Notably, if Infectious Sporeling actually killed the target, the target won't be transformed into Infectious Sporeling before dying, so its Deathrattle will still work as normal.

Infectious Sporeling can be used alongside cards that grant Charge or Rush to create a cheap Polymorph for all classes, but be warned that your opponent may retaliate by using the transformed Infectious Sporelings against your own big minions. Rogues can combine Infectious Sporeling with Betrayal to transform two more enemy minions into 1/2s.

Trivia[]

  • This card's flavour text is a reference to a line spoken by the character Agent Smith in the 2003 film The Matrix Reloaded.
