Notes[]

  • For cards with Battlecry, Spirit of the Shark has all the same interactions as The League of ExplorersBrann Bronzebeard and their effects do not stack. Any number or combination of the two cards will still only result in two instances of a battlecry.
  • Spirit of the Shark will only benefit minions instead of all cards. This means it has no interaction with cards like LegacyPerdition's Blade or LegacyEviscerate.

Strategy[]

This card serves a similar purpose to Brann Bronzebeard, doubling the value of your Battlecry minions. As Brann is frequently killed at the first opportunity, Spirit of the Shark's Stealth dramatically increases its survivability, frequently allowing for explosive plays the turn after it enters play. It can also work with Combo effects, benefiting strong Rogue cards like LegacySI:7 Agent. Its costs is significantly more prohibitive however, making it harder to combine cards on the same turn as this or surprise your opponent.

While the player will not benefit from having two copies of Spirit of the Shark on the battlefield, including both in a deck creates a greater chance of drawing one early in the game and allows you to use the effect again after one is killed.

This card is extremely beneficial to LegacyEdwin VanCleef, playing it on the same turn alone will result in Edwin becoming a 3-mana 6/6, tripling his vanilla stats, with the potential for even more, especially with Rogue's access to low-cost spells, such as LegacyPreparation and LegacyBackstab.

Lore[]

The Spirit of the Shark is, as the name suggests, a spiritual manifestation of Gral, the shark loa.[1]
