Since this boss can heal back to full HP at no cost, it is not ideal to push for face damage at the start. Instead, focus on building up your side of the board, until you have sufficient damage to kill Lord Marrowgar in a single turn.

Lord Marrowgar's most dangerous cards are the Bone Spikes. They deal a massive amount of damage and have enough Health to have a good chance to survive until the next turn. Destroy or silence them as soon as possible, and maybe use Frozen Clone. His weapon, Bryn'troll, the Bone Arbiter, is very effective at removal, so having weapon removal cards like Acidic Swamp Ooze is also a good idea.

Priest is an easy class for this mission. They have access to Silence effects and Topsy Turvy to pacify the Bone Spikes, can set up a one-turn-kill combo with Divine Spirit and Inner Fire, and steal Bone Spikes with Convert, Soul Mirror, Cabal Acolyte, and Cabal Shadow Priest.

With the introduction of Silas Darkmoon, Priest can now also gift an Auchenai Soulpriest to Marrowgar, making him commit suicide with his Hero Power at the end of his turn (as long as you do not have a 5+ Attack minion that he can trade his new Soulpriest into); Gilded Gargoyle can help execute this combo as a one-turn kill on turn 10, while Fate Weaver or Emperor Thaurissan allows it to come down on turn 9.

I must craft a NEW bone amalgamation. Maybe a golden one.

In the end, all will serve me.


Lord Marrowgar is the first boss of the Icecrown Citadel raid. Pieced together by the The Lich King from the bones of a thousand vanquished adventurers, he is the guardian of the Frozen Throne within The Spire, and wields the power of the throne itself. His weapon is the axe Bryntroll, the Bone Arbiter.
