Strategy[]

This card is useful for slowing the opponent, especially if they have large minions, and lack AoE removal. Its effect is magnified by the number of enemy minions, but the 1/1 Pawns are easily removed, meaning by itself this card will usually only buy a single turn. However, combined with The Grand TournamentBolster this card can provide excellent value, allowing the warrior to turn the tide of battle against Zoo decks.

Trivia[]

  • The Pawn's summon quote "En passant" refers to En passant, a chess mechanic that under certain circumstances allows a pawn to capture an enemy pawn by moving past it.
  • Artist Jim Nelson originally sketched the card's art as a more expansive scene, showing a number of pieces in battle (see below), but a decision was made to zoom in one area in order to make it clearer on the card itself.[1]
  • This is the third card to be added which has a scaling effect based on the number of enemy minions.
