What, did you expect the Sunreavers to be coldages?
How to get
|Golden Sunreaver Warmage||800||100|
While holding a spell that costs 5 or more in your hand, this outclasses almost every other 5 cost minion in the game in terms of Tempo. Compared with Baited Arrow, an already good card, you lose -1/-1 for 2 more direct damage that can be sent anywhere instead of a minion to kill. It is best to run at least 4 or more spells that cost 5 or more in your deck to get this Battlecry triggered consistently. Running any lower can mean that you won't be able to fufill the conditions for the Battlecry in most games.
- The Sunreavers are a faction of blood elves who represented the Horde in Dalaran. Named for their leader, Archmage Aethas Sunreaver, the Sunreavers sought to have their people readmitted as members of the Kirin Tor, a plight they were successful in. They also joined the Horde Expedition in Northrend. The Sunreavers were eventually expelled from the Kirin Tor some time after Jaina Proudmoore came into power, and those remaining returned to Quel'Thalas. The Alliance equivalent of the Sunreavers is the Silver Covenant.
- Following their return to Quel'Thalas, Aethas and the Sunreavers began collaborating with the Thalassian Magisters under Grand Magister Rommath. Several members of the Sunreavers then took up arms in the name of the Sunreaver Onslaught, under Lor'themar Theron's direct leadership. Aethas and the Sunreavers eventually rejoined the Kirin Tor during the third invasion of the Burning Legion.
- Sunreaver Warmage's summoning quote is spoken in the high elf and blood elf language of Thalassian and translates to "The eternal sun guides us".
