Having awakened the demons within, their fight for Outland almost begins. Through many ordeals, the outcasts stood strong. Soon they fight, for the right to belong!

As part of their Demon Hunter training, Sklibb (controlled by the player) spars with Karnuk in this encounter. Sklibb's deck fits the Big Druid archetype, with a few Demon Hunter cards in the mix. Karnuk does the same, albeit with a deck reminiscent of Buff Priest. Throughout the game, the main focus should be on good board control.

Due to the slow nature of Sklibb's deck, try and mulligan for as many Glowcap Mushrooms possible. Embiggen and Imprisoned Satyr are some good early-game plays. Make good use of your Felspores Hero Power to buff minions on your board and gain card draw. It works exceptionally well with spells like Living Mana and The Forest's Aid, but try not to use it if you only have one Glowcap Mushroom on the board and it's buffed. Once you have a good board with buffed minions, it won't be long before overwhelming Karnuk.

I can feel something... raw and angry... inside of me.

My sister took in a murloc and taught him to speak common.

Nice attack, Sklibb! Remember Illidan's advice and keep moving.

Karnuk is original to Hearthstone. He is a mag'har orc.

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
The Mag'har orcs ("uncorrupted" in Orcish), also known as brown orcs, are the orcs that escaped the corruption of the Burning Legion. On Draenor, they were a result of isolation from the Horde due to being quarantined in Garadar. They have a noble shamanistic tradition cultivating a mighty tribal society that was centered around survival, regulating themselves through ritualized combat and personal honor. On alternate Draenor, the orcs did not take up the fel because of the intervention of Garrosh Hellscream, causing them to remain uncorrupted.
