Primordial Glyph is an epic mage spell card, from the Journey to Un'Goro set.

How to get[]

Primordial Glyph can be obtained through Journey to Un'Goro card packs, or through crafting.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Primordial Glyph 400 100
Golden Primordial Glyph 1600 400


  • This spell has two steps:
    • First it discovers a spell card;
    • Then it creates a cost-modification enchantment attached to the generated card that reduces its mana cost by 2.


This spell is flexible, and can be used to generate another spell that will directly help the mage; this can range from direct damage, removal and board clears, and stall/survivability cards when needed. Primordial Glyph is effectively a 0-mana Discover, and if you decide to hold onto the spell later, you will be trading some tempo for the ability to play the spell earlier or combo with other cards. It works well with cards with spell cast related triggers like Archmage Antonidas, Open the Waygate, Chenvaala, etc.
