Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Malevolent Strike only counts cards currently in your deck, rather than gaining a permanent discount for each card shuffled.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This card is an Assassinate like effect, and as long as your deck is able to support its condition, it'll end up giving more value then Assassinate. Malevolent Strike works well with C'Thun, the Shattered, automatically reducing its cost to 1 at the start of the game. It also has synergy with cards like Gang Up, Lab Recruiter, and Togwaggle's Scheme, giving it some use as hard removal in Mill Rogue. In Wild, Thief Rogue can use this with Academic Espionage to shuffle a huge number of cards into their deck.

Malevolent Strike works well in a deck with Grand Empress Shek'zara, giving you the option to reduce Malevolent Strike's cost or draw multiple cards with Shek'zara.
