Notes[]

  • When determining which spells to destroy, Skulking Geist looks at their base mana costs, before any cost modification effects are applied.[1]
    Example: A player has a copy of LegacyArcane Missiles in their hand and a LegacySorcerer's Apprentice in play, causing their Arcane Missiles to cost 0. Their opponent plays Skulking Geist, destroying the Arcane Missiles.[1]

Strategy[]

This minion can serve as an extremely powerful tech card against decks that rely on 1-Cost spells, such as Secret Paladin (NaxxramasAvenge, LegacyNoble Sacrifice, etc.) or Jade Druid (Mean Streets of GadgetzanJade Idol). Other important 1-cost spells removed include LegacyInner Fire, Mean Streets of GadgetzanPotion of Madness, Kobolds & CatacombsDark Pact, Whispers of the Old GodsEvolve, Kobolds & CatacombsUnstable Evolution, Journey to Un'GoroEarthen Scales, LegacyNaturalize, LegacyWhirlwind, and LegacyShield Slam.

Note that if is played after a player uses Journey to Un'GoroExplore Un'Goro, their entire deck is destroyed, providing an almost guaranteed loss for them. It also removes Rastakhan's RumbleHakkar, the Soulflayer's Rastakhan's RumbleCorrupted Blood from both players.

Lore[]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Geists are hideous crawling, gangrel creatures of the Scourge. Geists have hangman's ropes around their necks and at least some of them are executed criminals reborn as undead. Agile and quick despite their crawling gait, they are one of the lower-ranking forms of undead. Aside from use in combat, geists see a lot of service as manual labor. Despite their gagged, hooded faces (dominated by only one eye) and muffled, harsh cackling, geists are capable of coherent speech after clearing their throats.
After being freed from the grasp of Knights of the Frozen ThroneThe Lich King, some geists have regrouped against him under the banner of Highlord Darion Mograine as members of the Knights of the Ebon Blade.
