Deal 4 damage. Discard a random card.

Are you lighting a soul on fire? Or burning someone with your OWN soul? This seems like an important distinction.

Other versions[edit | edit source]


How to get[edit | edit source]

Two copies of regular and golden Soulfire are automatically given after the player completes the Ranked's New player experience system, unlocking Wild and Classic format.

They are uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Previous availability[edit | edit source]

Prior Year of the Gryphon's rotation on March 30, 2021:

  • Two copies of Soulfire were a reward for raising a warlock to level 6.
  • Two Golden copies of Soulfire were a reward for raising a warlock to levels 28 and 30.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This spell has two steps:
    • First, it damages its target, queuing and resolving triggers;
    • Then, it discards a random card, queuing and resolving triggers. As usual, the discarded card is revealed to both players.
Example: If you control Archmage Antonidas and cast Soulfire, Archmage Antonidas will add a Fireball to your hand before Soulfire discards a random card, which thus can be the Fireball you just obtained.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

If you cast this spell with no other cards in hand, you will be unable to discard a card, essentially gaining 4 damage with no penalty. It's still useful if you are willing to give up any of the cards in your hand as 4 damage is a significant amount of damage for 1 mana.

Soulfire has cheap synergy with cards such as Fist of Jaraxxus and Malchezaar's Imp which benefit from the cheap discard effect.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Soul Fire is a Destruction warlock spell from World of Warcraft. It is a high damage, mana efficient spell that deals a large chunk of Fire damage to the target. The spell generally suffers from a very long cast time, but a related ability can reduce its cast time by 50% when used on low health targets, allowing it to be used as a powerful execute ability.
