Pyromaniac is a rare mage minion card, from the Rastakhan's Rumble set.

How to get[]

Pyromaniac can be obtained through Rastakhan's Rumble card packs, or through crafting.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Pyromaniac 100 20
Golden Pyromaniac 800 100

Notes[]

  • Contrary to the card's text, when Pyromaniac is activated, the card draw will be resolved before the death of the minion killed by the Hero Power, not after as stated on the card. For example, if Pyromaniac draws a Scroll of Wonders which activates a Brawl, the dead minion will still be considered a minion for the purposes of Brawl (i.e. Brawl could result in a fully cleared board after the death resolves, with no minion surviving).

Strategy[]

This card synergizes well with Mage's own Hero Power, making it possible to be a 5 mana 3/4 with 1 damage, without costing a card. Also the requirement is the same as Frost Lich Jaina's hero power, so playing Pyromaniac before using that can provide more value.

in Odd Mage this is an excellent 3-drop and its effect can be triggered easily.

Trivia[]

  • During the development of Rastakhan's Rumble, the developers always wanted to include the effect "Your Hero Power also targets adjacent minions" on one of the set's mage cards to play into the fiery Hero Power theme of Jan'alai's Dragonhawks, but the effect shifted around between Pyromaniac, Jan'alai, the Dragonhawk, and Spirit of the Dragonhawk throughout development before eventually ending up on the Spirit.[1]
