Strategy[]

Runic Egg, for a 1-mana card, is near useless when played on its own, as the opponent will simply ignore it. However, granting it Taunt or +Attack through cards such as LegacyAbusive Sergeant or LegacyDefender of Argus can allow it to be used to trade with enemy minions, triggering its Deathrattle. It also works well with LegacyPower Overwhelming and LegacyBattle Rage (providing extra card draw through cards like LegacyWhirlwind and Whispers of the Old GodsRavaging Ghoul), and at times can serve as a deterrent to AoE board clears. However, its dependency on such effects and lack of stats and abilities mean Runic Egg is generally considered a very poor card.

This card has more use in a Grimy Goons-themed hand-buffing deck, particularly with Paladins. Combined with cards like Mean Streets of GadgetzanSmuggler's Run and Mean Streets of GadgetzanGrimestreet Outfitter, it turns into a sturdy one-drop with card draw, and as a 1-Mana minion, it can be drawn from Mean Streets of GadgetzanSmall-Time Recruits.

This card can be used with Journey to Un'GoroSpiritsinger Umbra, and maybe even NaxxramasBaron Rivendare or The Boomsday ProjectNecromechanic. An alternate use is with cards that tinker with your Deathrattle minions, such as The Boomsday ProjectReckless Experimenter, Saviors of UldumAnka, the Buried, and Rise of ShadowsShadowy Figure. Cheaper, one-time activators are another way to implement this - use things like The Boomsday ProjectNecrium Blade, Rise of ShadowsNine Lives, or The Boomsday ProjectNecrium Vial,
