Stranglethorn Tiger (Core) is uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Stranglethorn Tiger can be used in hunter or druid decks to take advantage of Beast synergy. The combination of Stealth and high health give the Tiger good chances to survive until your next turn to take advantage of combo pieces, like Houndmaster or Druid of the Fang, or the all-popular Kill Command. Its 5 health also allows it to survive Snipe.

Buffing a stealthed minion can provide a large advantage for the player since it can only be targeted by AoE or randomly directed damage effects.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Stranglethorn Tigers are hostile mobs found in Northern Stranglethorn, a vast jungle south of Duskwood in the Eastern Kingdoms. Northern Stranglethorn is part of Stranglethorn Vale, which is also the setting for one of Hearthstone's battlefields.
