Sparkjoy Cheat is a rare rogue minion card, from the Darkmoon Races mini-set.

How to get[]

Sparkjoy Cheat can be obtained through Madness at the Darkmoon Faire card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward. Regular Sparkjoy Cheat can also be obtained through the Highest Rank Bonus chest at the end of a Ranked season.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Sparkjoy Cheat 100 20
Golden Sparkjoy Cheat 800 100


  • If you have more than one Secret in hand, the one played is chosen at random.
  • If you have 5 Secrets in play, Sparkjoy Cheat will not put another into play but will still draw a card.

Known bugs[]

  • If you've activated a Sparkjoy Cheat's Battlecry, Headmaster Kel'Thuzad's Spellburst effect will not summon any minions, despite triggering his voiceline and consuming the charge.[1]
  • The next card played by either player will trigger Headmaster Kel'Thuzad's Spellburst effect if Sparkjoy is played, regardless on how many turns after or if the card is even a spell.[2]


An extremely efficient tempo play, which can cheat out a 2-mana Secret while also drawing a card to replace itself. Sparkjoy Cheat is essentially a Kirin Tor Mage with a weaker body but larger upside.

If you have multiple Secrets in hand, there can be situations where you may want to hold off on playing Sparkjoy Cheat. For example, playing Dirty Tricks or Plagiarize while your hand is almost full, or Shadow Clone against a board of tokens.

Sparkjoy Cheat also has incredible synergy with any Mage Secrets you can get, like from a Wand Thief. Mage Secrets are more expensive and typically more powerful than Rogue ones.

Patch changes[]

  • Forged in the Barrens logo.pngPatch (2021-03-25): Fixed a bug where Sparkjoy Cheat casting a secret from your hand would trigger an opponent’s Counterspell and still put the secret into play. It will now no longer trigger Counterspell.
  • Madness at the Darkmoon Faire Mini-set logo.pngPatch (2021-01-21): Added.
