Pit Snake is a rogue minion card, from the League of Explorers set.

How to get[]

Two copies of regular Pit Snake are obtained by defeating Lady Naz'jar, the third boss in The League of Explorers's third wing, The Ruined City.

As a Wild format card, both regular and golden versions of Pit Snake can also be crafted for the following amounts:

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Pit Snake 40 5
Golden Pit Snake 400 50


Considered to be a less reliable version of Patient Assassin however the main draw of this minion is that it is more cost efficient and a common.

Pit Snake is extremely effective against cheap, medium-Health minions that can easily shut down other 2/1s, such as Voidwalker and Wyrmrest Agent, or even Deathlord. However, its lack of Stealth make this card less reliable as a counter against late-game threats; at that point in the game your opponent will often be able to remove the Pit Snake by using a spell, or by choosing a cheaper minion to trade into it.


Pit Snake may be related to or meant to represent the Pit Viper mobs found in the Halls of Origination.
