Previous availability


  • This spell's damage is increased by bonuses from Spell Damage and Prophet Velen.
  • This spell can be used if your hero has 0 Attack, usually dealing no damage unless you have some Spell Damage bonus.[1]


In most cases, Druids will need to gain Attack in some way to deal damage with this card. This is easily done with Shapeshift, but generally dealing 2 damage for 3 Mana total is very inefficient. Cards that give Attack like Claw, Bite, and Pounce as well as alternate Hero Powers like Dire Shapeshift and Plague Lord are more efficient ways to gain Attack.

The alternative method of gaining Attack is to equip a weapon. Druids are limited to Twig of the World Tree and Atiesh, which have very low attack. Other unreliable ways to gain better weapons is from The Lich King/Arfus (1/8 chance) or from Blingtron 3000 (random results).

Overall, Savagery is a very poor card. In most cases it needs to be comboed with other cards to even be usable, and being limited to targeting minion makes it less versatile. Druids have much better cheap spells for damage or removal, like Moonfire, Lesser Jasper Spellstone, Living Roots, and Crystal Power.
