Notes

  • Mecha'thun will destroy the enemy hero even if the controlling player has Secrets or Weapons equipped.[1]
  • Destroying Mecha'thun with a Reincarnate will successfully activate the Deathrattle effect if its condition is satisfied.[2]
  • Mecha'thun will destroy the enemy hero even if the controlling player has The Darkness in dormant form on the field. It is unknown whether this appplies to all Permanents. It is also unknwon whether this is a bug or intended.[3]

Strategy

Mecha'thun offers one of the few guaranteed win conditions in the game, but its requirements are very demanding. Not only is drawing out your entire deck a time-consuming process, emptying out your hand and clearing out all other friendly minions is just as tricky. Otherwise, as a vanilla 10/10 it's largely useless.

If you play Mecha'thun with no assistance, there is no guarantee it will survive to the next turn to combo it to meet the requirements. Even if you filled everything else, there's always a chance it could get silenced or transformed, negating all your hard work. One-turn combos are still possible however by utilizing Galvanizers to reduce its cost to be more manageable.

Potentials combos to instantly kill Mecha'thun include:

Hemet, Jungle Hunter can delete your low-cost cards out of your deck to empty your deck as soon as possible. Keening Banshee also helps with deck thinning.
