Strategy[]

Plague of Death is a powerful and efficient board clear. It wipes the entire board like LegacyTwisting Nether, and the addition of Silence also prevents Deathrattle effects from going off, leaving a clean board. It's a strong control card for this reason, even if it's very expensive. Its high cost can be used to your advantage with cards like Rise of ShadowsSunreaver Warmage and Saviors of UldumKing Phaoris.

Kobolds & CatacombsPsychic Scream is comparable to Plague of Death, which offers the same immediate effect for 2 less mana, but giving the opponent a chance to draw the removed minions again and delaying fatigue.

Lore[]

The stakes for our heroes have never been higher. Rafaam is bringing about the end of days, unleashing a series of devastating plagues, like a Plague of Death. Most plagues just wimp out and settle for disease or pestilence or whatever, but this one is just straight-up death. Silenced death. The deathiest death.[1]

Trivia[]

  • Plague of Death's visual effect was created by VFX artist Hadidjah Chamberlin in order to establish a unifying visual style for the rest of the set's "plague" spells.[2]
