Notes[]

Strategy[]

Spirit of the Dragonhawk upgrades the hero power so that the hero power attacks adjacent minions however it has no effect it targetting the enemy hero.

Due to its stealth, it has a greater chance of likely to stay alive for the next turn allowing you to use its effects for two turns.

It essentially turns your hero power into a Shooting Star effect. To amplify its power, it's essential to use cards to increase Hero Power: Daring Fire Eater, Forged in the BarrensWildfire, The Grand TournamentFallen Hero, and Galakrond's AwakeningArcane Amplifier. With Wildfire, this can permanently turn a lone Spirit of the Dragonhawk to a powerful anti-aggressive tool with its high damage output.

It can also activate effects such as Rastakhan's RumblePyromaniac to draw up to 3 cards or Knights of the Frozen ThroneIce Walker to freeze 3 minions at once.

By dealing more total damage, this can quickly add up to the requirements for Jan'alai the Dragonhawk or Mordresh, Fire Eye to be played on curve or top-deck later on.

Lore[]

The Spirit of the Dragonhawk is, as the name suggests, a spiritual manifestation[2] of Jan'alai, the dragonhawk loa.

Trivia[]

  • During the development of Rastakhan's Rumble, the developers always wanted to include the effect "Your Hero Power also targets adjacent minions" on one of the set's mage cards to play into the fiery Hero Power theme of Jan'alai's Dragonhawks, but the effect shifted around between Spirit of the Dragonhawk, Rastakhan's RumblePyromaniac, and Rastakhan's RumbleJan'alai, the Dragonhawk throughout development before eventually ending up on the Spirit. Another idea that was considered was to have a card reading "Spell Damage affects your Hero Power", which was at one point tested on Jan'alai before being moved to the Spirit, but the deck didn't quite work with this effect due to the difficulty of trying to include both Hero Power and Spell Damage cards.[3]
  • During the November 19, 2018 Rastakhan's Rumble card reveal livestream, Knights of the Frozen ThroneIce Walker's effect was shown not to apply to additional targets targeted by Spirit of the Dragonhawk's effect.[4] This was confirmed as a bug and was corrected prior to the release of the expansion.[5][6][7][8]
