Rush
Can attack minions immediately.
A newly-played Scaleworm with Rush, ready to attack.

Rush is an ability allowing a minion to attack other minions the same turn it is summoned or brought under a new player's control. Unlike Charge, Rush cannot be used to attack the enemy hero. Rush is represented by a shifting thick green border around the minion.

Rush was first introduced in The Witchwood and has appeared in every set since. It has functionally replaced Charge as an evergreen keyword.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Charge will not be overridden by Rush, and Rush has no effect if the minion isn't exhausted. If Rush is given to a minion with Charge or a minion ready to attack, it can still attack the enemy hero.
  • If there are no enemy minions to attack, the Rush visual effect will disappear. However, if a new minion is summoned for them, it will return.
  • Granting Rush to a minion that has already attacked will not allow them to attack again. This includes Rush given through Magnetic buffs, where the original minion could attack if it were normally summoned.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Rush is a useful ability for board control, allowing you to tactically trade against enemy minions.
  • Unlike Charge minions, Rush minions usually feature good stats, letting them stick on the board after attacking or dealing a large amount of damage to a minion.

Development[edit | edit source]

Rush was created by the team as a way to print minions with fast, spell-like effects, but without running the risk of them being used as powerful finishers. Cards like Leeroy Jenkins and the original version of Arcane Golem had proven how problematic powerful Charge minions can be, since their downsides will be nullified if they're used to win the game.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Rush could be considered to have 3 "beta" versions, which all function similar to this effect, but differ slightly. Icehowl is an over-statted Charge minion that can't attack heroes, but its inability to attack heroes is a permanent effect. Charged Devilsaur's effect is identical to Rush when played from the hand, but can freely attack heroes when summoned indirectly by another card. The Charge spell is the most similar, with the only differences being synergy with Charge-related cards like Warsong Commander and a very rare case in which it is used on Immortal Prelate.
  • Rush is the third non-launch keyword to continue to appear on cards outside of the set it was introduced in, the first two being Discover and Lifesteal.
