Notes[]

  • This card's Battlecry will improve Whispers of the Old GodsC'Thun regardless of whether C'Thun is currently in the player's deck or hand, on the battlefield.[1] This can work, like all other Whispers of the Old GodsC'Thun cards, even if there are no C'Thuns in your deck or battlefield.
  • Skeram Cultist will not be included in Arena picks (along with C'Thun and all other related cards).[2] However, they may still appear in Arena matches through random effects.[3]

Strategy[]

Despite granting C'thun a decent buff, this is one of the weaker C'thun minions. It has slightly worse stats than LegacyBoulderfist Ogre, and aside from a small C'thun buff, lacks any abilities once it enters play. There are a few better alternatives, such as Whispers of the Old GodsCrazed Worshipper, who has Taunt and the ability to buff C'thun multiple times for one less mana, or Whispers of the Old GodsDoomcaller, who provides a better body, the same kind of buff, and a very powerful ability for only two more mana.

Lore[]

Skeram Cultist appears to be a member of the cult led by Prophet Skeram. Skeram and his cult are qiraji, a race of creatures created by Whispers of the Old GodsC'Thun.

Trivia[]

  • This minion's summon quote "The Sleeper has awoken!" apparently refers to C'Thun, but is likely also a reference to the classic science fiction novel Dune.
