Strategy[]

With good stats for its cost and a special effect highly relevant to a mage, the Sorcerer's Apprentice makes for a useful addition to any spell-oriented deck. It is most commonly seen in tempo-focused decks which seize board control in the early game, not allowing the opponent to recover.

Notably it reduces the mana cost of both Arcane Missiles and Mirror Image to 0, and Frostbolt and Flamecannon to 1, allowing a mage to control the board and still have mana left to play minions. Multiple Sorcerer's Apprentice can be combined to enable powerful combos, such as infinite Fireballs from Archmage Antonidas.

This card's ability makes it a soft taunt in most situations, making it a good idea to protect it with a Taunt, as most opponent players will try to remove it at the earliest opportunity. However, in the late game it is generally less valuable and therefore less of a target, due to the larger pool of available mana and usually smaller hand size.

Trivia[]

Speculation[]

  • This card is often considered to depict Kinndy Sparkshine, an apprentice of Jaina Proudmoore who was killed in the bombing of Theramore. However, Kinndy is described as having bright pink hair, bound up in ponytails, as opposed to this gnome's red, braided hair.
