Previous availability[]

Summoned minions[]

Violet Apprentice(63).png


This card summons a 1/1 Violet Apprentice upon each spell cast. Therefore, these can be used to quickly swarm the field and overwhelm your opponent by casting multiple spells while Violet Teacher is in play.

Note that the Apprentice is summoned before the spell takes effect, making the Violet Teacher particularly potent with spells that buff all minions (Power of the Wild), in which case a 2/2 is summoned instead of a 1/1. On the other hand, if a Wild Pyromancer is on your side of the battlefield when a non-Power of the Wild spell is cast, the Violet Apprentice will be destroyed when the Pyromancer's effect triggers.

As with all other minions with triggered effects triggering on casting of spells, a spell countered by Counterspell will still trigger the Teacher's effect.

This card should be placed in order to set up some defense as you strike and dish out additional damage on your next turn.




Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
The Violet Eye is a secret sect founded by the Kirin Tor of Dalaran to spy on the Guardian of Tirisfal, Medivh, in his tower of Karazhan. Though Medivh is believed to be dead, the Violet Eye remains in Karazhan, defending against the evil that appears to have taken hold in the absence of its master.
It is unknown whether Medivh's apprentice Khadgar was a member of the Violet Eye, or whether he knew of their activities at the time (though he does seem to be aware of them now).
