Notes[]

  • Mogu Cultist's Battlecry requires you to control exactly 6 other Mogu Cultists. Controlling any number of permanents will make the Battlecry unfulfillable until the permanent is removed.[1]

Strategy[]

Summoning Saviors of UldumHighkeeper Ra is best done with a Rogue deck. Mogu Cultist can be combined with Rise of ShadowsTak Nozwhisker and Rise of ShadowsTogwaggle's Scheme to give you the required amount of Cultists to summon Ra the next turn. Afterwards, you can use Saviors of UldumShadow of Death with LegacyPreparation to shuffle in more Highkeeper Ras if the first one doesn't kill the opponent or shuffle in Highkeeper Ra then use Kobolds & CatacombsWondrous Wand from Rise of ShadowsHeistbaron Togwaggle to draw and play them. Knights of the Frozen ThroneDrakkari Enchanter will double Ra's damage for lethal without requiring any mana-reducing resources.

Another possible way is to use Rise of ShadowsHeistbaron Togwaggle to obtain Kobolds & CatacombsTolin's Goblet, and there is a very slight chance that you will be able to draw a Mogu Cultist, thus filling your hand with copies of it. However, this requires a lot of luck and is not very likely to succeed. You can however manipulate this by emptying your deck, then putting more Mogu Cultists in with cards like Blackrock MountainGang Up or Rise of ShadowsTogwaggle's Scheme.

Mages can setup Saviors of UldumTortollan Pilgrim to cast Scholomance AcademyPotion of Illusion to create a 1-cost copy of itself, then use that to copy your Mogu Cultists, then you use it to copy Highkeeper Ra for lethal damage. You can use LegacyFireblast to kill off your Tortollan Pilgrims to make room to summon Highkeeper Ra.

Alternatively, you can use The WitchwoodGlinda Crowskin on Warlock. You can summon 6 copies, kill off Glinda with Rastakhan's RumbleGrim Rally, then play the last (Echo-copied) Mogu Cultist. This combo is not possible on one turn normally, so you will need to draw Glinda with Saviors of UldumTome of Origination from Saviors of UldumSupreme Archaeology to make this combo possible, which you can guarantee using The WitchwoodBaleful Banker with an empty deck. Alternatively in Wild, you can use Blackrock MountainEmperor Thaurissan with Knights of the Frozen ThroneDrakkari Enchanter earlier (or CoreThe Coin on that turn).

Lore[]

Mogu Cultist is a rare example of a female mogu, of which only a handful are known to exist and who are shrouded in mystery and speculation.

The Mogu Cultists are apparently worshippers of Saviors of UldumHighkeeper Ra, which is also unusual; while Ra was the original creator of the mogu and was once revered by them, he largely faded into obscurity after he was defeated and imprisoned by Lei Shen. A few months after the release of Saviors of Uldum, the Rajani, a group of mogu serving Ra, debuted in World of Warcraft, suggesting that the Mogu Cultists may be affiliated with them.

Trivia[]

  • When designing Highkeeper Ra, Team 5 wanted to create a ritual players had to go through in order to summon him, similar to that of Kobolds & CatacombsAzari, the Devourer from Kobolds & Catacombs. The concept was present in the Saviors of Uldum expansion design sheet from early on and stuck around through the entire development process.[2]
  • Early on, Ra only dealt 10 damage instead of 20, but the designers felt he needed a bigger impact to justify the lengthy process required to summon him.[2]
