Ultimate Infestation offers an incredible amount of value, even for a 10 mana card. Comparable to Firelands Portal, Ultimate Infestation also gives 5 armor and 5 cards drawn for only an additional 3 mana. However despite this value, Ultimate Infestation's impact on the board is quite small for a 10 mana card and risks putting the player very behind on tempo. Much of this card's power comes on the turn after you play it. To make up for this, ramping to reach ten mana faster through cards like Wild Growth and Nourish greatly increases the impact of Ultimate Infestation.

The massive amount of card draw complements the Jungle Giants quest well, allowing you to potentially draw many cost-reduced minions, while also helping towards the quest in case it isn't completed yet.


  • The flavour text is a reference to a drop ship pilot from the film Aliens.
