  • The Rattlegores that have been resummoned by its Deathrattle are different entities. Silencing a resurrected Rattlegore will not return it to a 9/9.
  • Each Rattlegore is resummoned with -1/-1 what the previous Rattlegore's base stats was. Setting Rattlegore's stats to a lower or higher value will not affect the next one to be summoned.

Known bugs[]

  • If Rattlegore is buffed by Saviors of UldumGrandmummy, he will be resummoned with the buffs from Grandmummy (but still with -1/-1), with higher stats than usual.[1][citation needed]


Rattlegore represents 45/45 stats split through nine bodies. Rattlegore is one of the most sticky minions in the game, creating large stats that can reliably trade through minion after minion, and still leave a body to threaten the opponent's hero. With its ability to trade up, Rattlegore is best suited to control versus control matchups, particularly those with multiple big minions of their own like Ramp Druid.

The primary downside to Rattlegore is its high cost. On nine mana, it's typically easy for the opponent to simply ignore Rattlegore and kill minions with more pressing effects, or just go face. You can get around this using cards like Kobolds & CatacombsGather Your Party to bring Rattlegore out quicker, or Rise of ShadowsThe Boom Reaver to speed up his effect. Scholomance AcademyCommencement in particular is one of the best ways to cheat out Rattlegore, summoning him on a discount and giving him much-needed immediate board presence.

Rattlegore is very weak to transform effects like LegacyPolymorph, which nullify his Deathrattle and high stats. He is also susceptible to Silence, although this will leave his decent statline intact without another removal tool.

In Wild, using Whispers of the Old GodsN'Zoth, the Corruptor and Rattlegore alone can resummon an entire board filled with various stats of Rattlegore that leads to a very sticky board thanks to its Deathrattle. With Journey to Un'GoroSpiritsinger Umbra's effect, playing Rattlegore effectively fills the board with up to 39/39 stats worth of Rattlegores, which something like a Mean Streets of GadgetzanDevolve is ineffective against (as it will turn even a 1/1 Rattlegore into a potentially powerful 8 mana minion); only a mass silence and clear like Galakrond's AwakeningThe Amazing Reno or Saviors of UldumPlague of Death can remove it on its own.
