Strategy[edit | edit source]
Neeru provides a win condition similar to that of Lakkari Sacrifice, albeit with a harsher requirement for a stronger board presence. A minimum of 18 damage to your opponent's hero is nothing to sneeze at, and the Warlock class has plenty of draw options to thin out the deck, but between liberal usage of Life Tap and cards such as Backfire, you run a very real risk of weakening yourself to the point where Fatigue damage becomes a legitimate concern once Neeru's effect is triggered. As a result, Neeru is best suited for a Control Warlock build with sufficient Spells such as Drain Soul and Soul Shear to supplement the Warlock's health. Mulligan for this card as soon as you can to avoid destroying it by your own self mill effects such as Altar of Fire and non-Corrupted Tickatus.

Lore[edit | edit source]
- Neeru Fireblade is an orc quest giver located in the Cleft of Shadow in Orgrimmar. He has an assistant named Ak'Zeloth.
- Thrall learned about Neeru's betrayal from the young adventurers he had sent to spy on Neeru. Neeru was tricked into thinking that the adventurers are working with Neeru and his Burning Blade and thus with the Shadow Council. Neeru retold the adventurers his goals and revealed himself to be the leader of the Burning Blade and that he is working with the Searing Blade within the Ragefire Chasm. He used to send unaware adventurers into Ragefire Chasm to test the strength of the Searing Blade cultists, to see if they're truly worthy of being on his side. This info was sent to Thrall who immediately had the leaders of Searing Blade killed. This angered Neeru, but did not take any action and proposed to wait.
- In Cataclysm, Neeru volunteered to aid Garrosh Hellscream in anyway he can. In Mists of Pandaria, with Garrosh angered by the fact that demon worshipers are found in Orgrimmar, he has sent the Kor'kron along with Ureda to take care of them. Neeru and the other warlocks were trapped in their tents. Later, during the siege, he was hanged on the Chasm's ceiling along with other warlocks.
- His former spot is now occupied by Arnak Fireblade.
