Strategy[edit | edit source]

A solid searching card that can pull small removal like Frostbolt or Ray of Frost, or find any Secret. Because of the limited range of cards that can be pulled, Magic Trick fits better in a Tempo Mage deck than it does a Control Mage.

The card works well with Mana Cyclone and Archmage Antonidas to produce a cheap spell and two cards for their effects. It also becomes very strong in combination with Sorcerer's Apprentice, letting you search for 0 mana.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The artwork depicts a trick where a person pretends to pull off their own finger by hiding half of it behind their hand and using a finger from their other hand as the removed finger. Trying to pass off a very simple illusion as a magic trick is quite in character for a goblin.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The goblin depicted in Magic Trick's card art is The Great Akazamzarak, a goblin magician found performing in the Eventide district in the Legion version of Dalaran. During the Legion mage campaign, Akazamzarak is recruited by the Tirisgarde order for his expertise with portals and teleportation.
  • Magic Trick was for much of the development of Rise of Shadows a card that was simply "Make a minion disappear. *Poof!*". The designers liked the effect and flavor, but it was just too similar to Polymorph, so the idea was put on hold until the design was carried over to The Amazing Reno.[1]
