Shadow Word: Horror is a rare priest spell card, from the Whispers of the Old Gods set.

How to get[]

Shadow Word: Horror can be obtained through Whispers of the Old Gods card packs, or through crafting.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Shadow Word: Horror 100 20
Golden Shadow Word: Horror 800 100

Strategy[]

This works well against decks with lots of small minions. It would fit in a control deck seeking to clear the board of their opponent's low-Attack minions without damaging their own larger minions.

Note that this spell destroys all minions with 2 or lower Attack, not just enemy ones.

This spell can be combined with cards like Crazed Alchemist, Shrinkmeister, and especially Pint-Size Potion to remove larger targets.

Lore[]

Shadow Word: Horror is a Shadow Word, a spell of dark magic used by priests to afflict and destroy their enemies. Unlike the other Shadow Words in Hearthstone - Shadow Word: Pain and Shadow Word: Death - Shadow Word: Horror is original to Hearthstone.

Trivia[]

  • Pint-Size Potion's flavor text mentions this card, as a reference to the strong combo of these two cards (which effectively clears all enemy minions with 5 or less Attack, while still only losing your own minions of 2 or less Attack)
