Without buffs or utilizing its Beast synergies, Lake Thresher is a sub-par choice that is only decent in Arena, allowing one to hit a weaker minion (like a Silver Hand Recruit) and hit a potentially larger threat at the same time. However, where Lake Thresher truly shines is in druid decks that utilize Guardian Animals, drawing the Lake Thresher from your deck and giving it rush. Cards like Embiggen and Survival of the Fittest can make it an even more potent threat. As decks that run these spells are usually control decks, Lake Thresher is good for potentially dealing high damage to multiple threats at once.




This card depicts a Threshadon, known colloquially as a "thresher," swimming in Darrowmere Lake outside the Scholomance. There are no threshers in the lake in World of Warcraft, making this card unique to Hearthstone.
