Strategy[]

Silverback Patriarch is generally considered an overcosted/understatted card, with very little potential despite its Beast type. New players may find this card of use if building an early game Taunt-heavy deck, but it is otherwise not recommended; even in those decks, LegacyIronfur Grizzly is a stronger option, with a better statline and retaining the Beast tag.

As a Beast, it has synergy with Hunter cards such as LegacyStarving Buzzard and LegacyScavenging Hyena. There is also some potential synergy with Druid cards like The Grand TournamentWildwalker and The Grand TournamentKnight of the Wild.

Silverback Patriarch has multiple stronger alternatives. Although some of them lack the Beast tag, generally this is a minor upside at best.

Lore[]

Silverback Patriarchs are level 42-43 gorillas native to Stranglethorn Vale. They can be found northeast of Booty Bay, near the eastern shore of the peninsula.
