Generated cards



The higher the value of the copied minion, the stronger the card will be. Since the Shadow card summons the minion when drawn, avoid low-statted Battlecry minions and pick cards that can have an immediate effect like a minion with Rush. Remember that you can copy enemy minions with this card.

You can combine this card with Augmented Elekk to shuffle in 6 cards for 7 Mana, making it slightly more efficient than x2 Shadow of Death. Combine it with an empty deck and Preparation and you can summon 6 copies of a minion that costs 5 or less mana on the next turn (You can use Preparation + Shiv to draw them on the same turn). You can use this combo to create OTK scenarios with cards such as Leeroy Jenkins and Desert Obelisk.
