Generated minion[]

Drustvar Horror


  • When played, you choose two Shaman spells in a Discover-like menu. You are given a 5-mana 5/5 Rise of ShadowsDrustvar Horror with "Battlecry: Cast [the two spells]".
  • The Horror casts the two spells in the order selected. Targeted spells are not targeted randomly; instead, you choose the target when you play the minion, just like any other targeted battlecry. As noted below, at most one of the two spells will be targeted.
  • You do not pay mana to cast the spells; however, spells with overload do lock your mana crystals as usual.[1]
  • The first choice of spells is random and includes all Shaman spells. If the first spell selected is a targeted spell, the second pool will be limited to non-targeted spells.[2]
  • Upgradable spells on Drustvar Horror's Battlecry cannot be upgraded.[3]
  • When Drustvar Horror played, it casts two spells in the same order as in selection. During this casting, minions die only after second cast (Reborn minion will survive, Overkill can be triggered twice) besides exceptions (Saviors of UldumEarthquake).
  • If the player has double battlecries from cards such as The League of ExplorersBrann Bronzebeard and Kobolds & CatacombsMurmuring Elemental, Swampqueen Hagatha makes two Drustvar Horror cards and the player chooses spells for them separately. Likewise, the double battlecry effects Drustvar Horror's spells twice (two casts, death effects, two casts).

Fixed bugs[]


Swampqueen Hagatha trades a low-tempo minion for a very value-efficient minion to use later. The Drustvar Horror can find spells way above its cost like LegacyBloodlust, Rastakhan's RumbleRain of Toads, or The Boomsday ProjectThe Storm Bringer or help fish for spells like LegacyLava Burst or LegacyHex to gain lethal or save yourself. It is generally well worth the cost and can find its place in control decks or midrange decks as a potential finisher.

The Drustvar Horror's Battlecry also works with The WitchwoodShudderwock, further empowering its Battlecry. Selecting non-targeting spells is advisable and avoid transformation or ally-damaging cards if you plan on using both.

Swampqueen Hagatha is extremely powerful when combined with Saviors of UldumHeart of Vir'naal or The League of ExplorersBrann Bronzebeard, allowing for creating two Drustvar Horrors and allowing them to cast twice as many spells. Note that picking a spell with Overload will cause it to be applied twice.
