Previous availability[]

Prior Year of the Gryphon's rotation on March 30, 2021:

  • Two copies of Stormpike Commando were automatically included in all players' collections upon unlocking the paladin class.
  • Two Golden copies of Stormpike Commando were a reward for raising a paladin to levels 51 and 52.

Strategy[]

Stormpike Commando's stats are very poor for his cost, and as a 4/2, he may die before you are able to attack with him. His main strength is in his Battlecry, which can be used to destroy a minion, or damage one before finishing it off.

Stormpike Commando is generally most effective when facing a valuable low Health minion such as LegacyKnife Juggler which it is imperative to remove. His Battlecry allows him to serve as a form of direct removal, particularly useful for classes which lack many removal options. However, if used simply for the Battlecry effect, Whispers of the Old GodsDisciple of C'Thun is a similar option for only 3 mana, with the added benefit of boosting Whispers of the Old GodsC'Thun should he be included in the deck. Journey to Un'GoroFire Plume Phoenix purely outclasses Stormpike Commando by costing 1 less mana, more health, and having elemental synergy, as does Ashes of OutlandBurrowing Scorpid, by costing 1 less mana, has 1 more attack, has beast synergies, and can gain stealth if the Battlecry kills its target.

The Commando's low Health makes it advisable to play him on an empty board, giving him a better chance of surviving the turn. His Battlecry can be useful for clearing enemy minions, preventing easy trades. While generally considered a poor card, with the right board the Commando can remove one minion with his Battlecry and force the opponent to trade another to remove him, at the least providing a 2 for 1 card advantage.

Lore[]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
The Stormpike clan is a respected dwarven clan, and are well known for their fine and discerning tastes. They are apparently rich dwarves as well.

This dwarf is likely a member of the Stormpike's expeditionary force, the Stormpike Guard.

The Stormpike Guard (aka Stormpike Expedition) is the Alliance faction in the Alterac Valley battleground. They are an expedition of dwarves of the Stormpike clan in search of artifacts. The Stormpikes' search for relics of their past, and harvesting of resources in Alterac Valley have led to open war with the orcs of the Frostwolf clan who are dwelling in the southern part of the valley. They were also issued with a "sovereign imperialistic imperative" by King Cosmetics - PNG logo.pngMagni Bronzebeard to take the valleys of Alterac for Ironforge. The dwarfs have allied with the Bloodfang Worgen in Hillsbrad in order to combat the Forsaken.
The main Stormpike base is Dun Baldar where their leader, Vanndar Stormpike, resides with his marshals. His second in command, Captain Balinda Stonehearth, is found south of Dun Baldar at Stonehearth Outpost.
