In Aranna's continued search for survival, Kanrethad Prime blocks the path as the first boss of Chapter 2. As noted above, he will always play Ashes of OutlandEndless Legion on his fourth and fifth turns, putting heavy pressure in the mid-game. As you're provided with a fully Secret-based deck, do play conservatively in the early game. For this reason, try for Secret synergy cards like LegacySecretkeeper, Kobolds & CatacombsLesser Emerald Spellstone and LegacyEaglehorn Bow in your mulligan.

Starting your Turn 6, Ashes of OutlandBaduu, Outcast will be summoned to your board and returns all other minions to their owner's hands. Ideally, you would want Saviors of UldumHyena Alpha and a fully upgraded Kobolds & CatacombsGreater Emerald Spellstone at this stage to turn the tide. Quickly rush Kanrethad Prime down, and try to stall him with Ashes of OutlandBlackjack Stunner and Secrets like LegacyFreezing Trap, before he can rebuild and overwhelm you with resurrected Demons from his Hero Power.

If in doubt, use LegacyShadowstep on Ashes of OutlandBaduu, Outcast- cards returned to the hand are always placed rightmost, enabling Baduu's Outcast effects.


Before match

Illidan Stormrage
Against this warlock, doom is nigh! Perhaps they'll find a new ally?


Aranna Starseeker
You! Are you the mastermind of this so-called "Rusted Legion"?
Kanrethad Prime
Oh, the young night elf and her friends I've heard so much about.

Emote Response

Kanrethad Prime
Was this really your plan? Hilarious!

Hero Power

Kanrethad Prime
Come forth again... to destroy!
Return to the fold!
Rise again... from gears and oil!
You are hopelessly outmatched.


Kanrethad Prime
Did you fancy yourself some kind of Demon Hunter?
Hmm, what could you be waiting for?
These upgrades are... quite to my liking.

There is so much you have yet to learn of this world, child.

Aranna Starseeker
Could she know a way to save us?
Kanrethad Prime
A Broken? What do you hope to accomplish?
Hmm. This is a problem that needs solving.
Stay out of this, Broken! I will deal with you later!


Baduu, Outcast
There is a place my people built. A shining temple, golden gilt.
A half-man reigns there, now it's black. The demons fear it, let's go back!
Alone, we cannot stay alive... Together though... we may survive!

Kanrethad Ebonlocke is a powerful human warlock and former leader of the Council of the Black Harvest, a group of like-minded warlocks gathered after the defeat of LegacyDeathwing.
Kanrethad was present, ostensibly as a member of the Alliance, in the battle where Illidan Stormrage was killed during the siege of the Black Temple. Following the battle he shared the secrets of Illidan's transformation with the Council. After Deathwing's downfall, he gathered great warlocks together to form the Council of the Black Harvest and they decided to go after the powers left behind by Ragnaros and Whispers of the Old GodsCho'gall, and return in a year's time. He partnered himself with the undead warlock Jubeka Shadowbreaker and together they went to accomplish their mission on Outland.

Kanrethad's Prime version depicts him as a Demonology Warlock in the original version of metamorphosis, before it became a Demon Hunter ability.
