Notes[]

Example: Blackrock MountainEmperor Thaurissan's effect has triggered while holding a 3-Cost minion. Summoning Portal reduces the minion to 1 Mana and Thaurissan's enchantment is applied afterwards, making it cost 0 Mana.[1][2]
Example: If a minion card with a base mana cost of 1 has its cost increased by some effect, playing a Summoning Portal will not reduce the final mana cost of the minion: since Summoning Portal's effect is applied first, it cannot decrease the mana cost of the 1-Cost minion below 1 and has no effect; only then is the cost-increasing effect applied.[3][4]
  • Summoning Portal does not increase the mana cost of a 0-Cost minion to 1.[5]

Strategy[]

The Summoning Portal is most useful in the mid game when your mana pool is still too low to put out bigger minions but sufficiently large to be able to get the Summoning Portal into play, thus effectively reducing the cost of all minions by 2. It can also be used during the late-game to get multiple big minions out.

Summoning Portal can be pulled directly with Knights of the Frozen ThroneMeat Wagon while also indirectly protecting it. When combined with Echo minions or The WitchwoodGlinda Crowskin, its effect becomes extremely powerful.
