Notes[]

  • NaxxramasBaron Rivendare will cause The Skeleton Knight's Joust to happen twice. If The Skeleton Knight wins the first Joust, the second will take place, but will have no effect.[1]
  • Goblins vs GnomesFeign Death will cause The Skeleton Knight to Joust. If The Skeleton Knight wins the Joust, it will be returned to the player's hand. (This does not create a second Skeleton Knight).
  • Despite this minion's return effect Deathrattle, additional Deathrattles such as LegacyAncestral Spirit and LegacySoul of the Forest will activate upon The Skeleton Knight's death. (This is in contrast to Goblins vs GnomesMalorne, for whom such added Deathrattles will not activate.)[2]

Fixed bugs[]

  • Prior to Patch 4.0.0.10833 (LoE patch), if your hand had 9 cards, you had NaxxramasBaron Rivendare on the field and The Skeleton Knight's Deathrattle won the Joust both times, The Skeleton Knight would discard himself. This happened because the check for max hand size is done when The Skeleton Knight moves from the hand back into the hand, without discounting The Skeleton Knight himself.[3]

Strategy[]

Most likely only good in very heavy control decks due to the Joust effect and the card advantage the effect generates.

Lore[]

Hearthstone[]

This spooky skeleton is a skilled knight who has spent his whole un-life practicing the joust! The Skeleton Knight loves the contest so much that when you win a joust, he’ll return for yet another chance at the fray. He also enjoys canned meat and pasta.[4]

World of Warcraft[]

"The Lich King is cunning and will use treachery to thwart his enemies. To that end, he has dispatched the Black Knight to eliminate promising candidates from Highlord LegacyTirion Fordring's army. The undead's mere presence defiles the Crusaders' Coliseum, and those who prevail against him will prove their worthiness."

The Skeleton Knight is the second form of LegacyThe Black Knight. In World of Warcraft, he starts off with rotting flesh and loses it, becoming The Skeleton Knight. He also raises the dead in this form.
