Notes[]

  • Shaku's effect triggers on the "proposed attack" phase in the attack sequence. This is the same phase as Forgetful effects, a number of Secrets, and a few others. Therefore all such effects occur in order of play, before combat damage is dealt.
Example: A Shaku played before LegacyFreezing Trap would trigger and add a card upon attacking, then would be sent back to the hand by the trap.[1]
  • Shaku will not add a card if it is neutralized as an attacker before its ability can activate.
Example: A Shaku played after Freezing Trap would be returned to the hand upon attacking, before it could trigger and add a card.[2]

Strategy[]

Shaku serves as yet another source of non-Rogue cards, alongside The Grand TournamentBurgle, Whispers of the Old GodsUndercity Huckster, and One Night in KarazhanSwashburglar, but his effect is renewable as long as he survives. His stats are below average but comes with Stealth, which almost guarantees Shaku will generate at least one card, but makes him easily removable afterwards. Fortunately, he plays on curve perfectly with Mean Streets of GadgetzanShadow Sensei to buff him into a 4/5, increasing his chance of surviving longer to create more cards.

Quotes[]

Summon
Succumb to your darkness.
Attack
Give in.

Lore[]

Shaku is unique to Hearthstone. Much like the Whispers of the Old GodsShadowbeast, he is a "sha creation",[3][4] but he has gained a much higher level of sentience than the rest of his kin.[3] He is "super evil, super old, and super greedy", and is rumored to whisper the name "Shaohao".[5]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
The sha (known as ikk to the hozen) are malevolent spirits found in Pandaria. Physical manifestations of negative emotions such as fear, hatred, or anger, they were spawned from the dying breath of the Old God Y'Shaarj when it was slain by the titans.
For thousands of years, the sha lay relatively dormant below Pandaria, but the arrival of the Alliance, the Horde and their war on Pandaria's shores caused the sha to once again rise up to threaten the land. However, since the heart of their creator was drained of its last remaining power during the Siege of Orgrimmar, the sha will eventually cease to be.
