Previous availability[]

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[]

  • 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 LegacyArchmage Antonidas and cast Soulfire, Archmage Antonidas will add a LegacyFireball to your hand before Soulfire discards a random card, which thus can be the Fireball you just obtained.

Strategy[]

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 The Grand TournamentFist of Jaraxxus and One Night in KarazhanMalchezaar's Imp which benefit from the cheap discard effect.

Lore[]

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.
