A one-time effect after you cast a spell.

Spellburst icon

Spellburst is an ability that causes a minion or weapon to do something the first time you cast a spell with it in play, and only the first time. It was introduced in the Scholomance Academy expansion.

Spellburst is represented by a sparkle that appears under the card's portrait. This graphic is also represented for Frenzy.


  • When the minion is first played, Spellburst acts as an 'after spell cast' Triggered effect. Once a spell is cast, it loses the Spellburst graphic and effect, but retains the functionally meaningless keyword.
  • Like other keyword enchantments, returning a used Spellburst minion or your hand or resurrecting it will return its Spellburst ability.
  • The minion must survive for the Spellburst to trigger.[1] However, if the minion is destroyed by a triggered Secret, such as Saviors of UldumPressure Plate, the Spellburst effect will still trigger after the Secret resolves.
