This minion's true strength, due to being weak for its cost, lies in its Battlecry. The treasure chest it spawns can give you some of the most powerful cards in the game. However, due to the chest's high health, you'll need a strong move to destroy it.

Marin pairs very well with LegacyCrazed Alchemist. On turn 10, you can play Marin, then the LegacyCrazed Alchemist to instantly destroy the treasure chest. Priests have more ways to destroy the chest such as LegacyShadow Word: Pain and the most effective method of them all, The Boomsday ProjectTopsy Turvy.

Priests can turn a mostly undamaged chest into an one-hit-kill with Mean Streets of GadgetzanPotion of Madness, two Divine Spirits and LegacyInner Fire. A true OTK can be accomplished with Journey to Un'GoroRadiant Elemental or Blackrock MountainEmperor Thaurissan.

While the chest is harmless on its own, the enemy can buff the chest with cards like Knights of the Frozen ThroneBonemare to turn it into a sturdy minion, or use it for the aforementioned one-hit kill against a Priest. Warlocks can even use Knights of the Frozen ThroneTreachery to give the chest to their opponent, before breaking it and stealing the treasure for themselves. Marin should be played with caution if you suspect the enemy is running these sorts of cards. Be careful against Paladins, since they can turn the Chest against you with powerful buffs (Saviors of UldumPharaoh's Blessing, LegacyBlessing of Kings, Journey to Un'GoroSpikeridged Steed) or even help them complete Journey to Un'GoroThe Last Kaleidosaur.

Marin's power level is similar to other legendaries; LegacyElite Tauren Chieftain and LegacyGelbin Mekkatorque. While it won't backfire or potentially give the enemy an advantage, the sheer range of outcomes he can produce and overall high mana cost makes him less viable in a competitive deck, even as a value play.

Rise of ShadowsHeistbaron Togwaggle's Battlecry offers the same treasures as Marin, and is a largely superior version as Togwaggle's treasures can be obtained much easier and more reliably, as well as allowing to choose the treasure best suited for the situation.




Marin is unique to Hearthstone.

Legendary adventure requires legendary adventurers, and Marin the Fox is an adventurer’s adventurer! This cunning rogue knows the ins and outs of every dungeon, and he’s delving deep into the Catacombs in search of a storied chest brimming with ridiculously powerful magical items.[1]


  • All players who logged into Hearthstone starting November 6, 2017 and lasting until ??? received a normal copy of Marin the Fox for free.[2]
    • All those who attended BlizzCon 2017 or purchased a Virtual Ticket will also receive a golden copy.[2][3][4]
  • Marin the Fox is the second card that was able to be used in Play mode before the release of the expansion it belonged to, the first being Journey to Un'GoroVolcanosaur.
  • This card's flavor text is a reference to the famous quote "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die" from the 1987 romantic comedy film The Princess Bride.
  • Marin the Fox is the first card released since Goblins vs GnomesDr. Boom to feature flavor text on the main body of the card. Much like Dr. Boom, it helps explain the card's comparatively complex mechanics without having all of it written out.
