Notes[]

  • The player has a high chance of drawing Scholomance AcademyHaratha at turn 6.
    • If it was got on mulligan or drawn earlier using other cards, the player will draw a random card instead.

Strategy[]

  • Try to press your Hero Power as often as possible, especially during later turns where you will have extra mana after clearing his board. You will get the chance to play cards from your Hand every turn, but you will only be able to use your Hero Power once per turn.
  • You might want to save your LegacyHunter's Mark for Scholomance AcademyMaim Blackhand.
  • You can value trade him with minion provided like Ashes of OutlandMok'Nathal Lion and LegacySavannah Highmane, while using Hero Power for face damage.
  • You might want to send your damaged minions into Warchief Blackhand's minions if they will be killed by his Hero Power anyway.

Dialogue[]

Before match

Rexxar (present)
I was banished from my only home. Unable to convince my clan to act, I would have to confront the Horde by myself.
Should they listen, my loss would not be in vain.

Introduction

Rexxar
Warchief Blackhand! May I have a word?
Warchief Blackhand
Words are weak. You must fight to be heard.
Rexxar
Then we fight.

Emote Response

Warchief Blackhand
More words, boy?

Hero Power

Warchief Blackhand
Do not test my patience.
For the Horde!
Tremble before me!

Idle

Warchief Blackhand
My clan was born for greatness... to conquer all. That is our legacy.
Power is the only law that all must obey.
The Horde was forged through blood and fear.

Turn 1

Warchief Blackhand
You are one of the mok'nathal, aren't you?
Rexxar
Yes. It is on their behalf I come to you.

Turn 2

Warchief Blackhand
I could destroy your clan in a heartbeat.
Rexxar
You must spare them!

Turn 3

Warchief Blackhand
HAH! All's fair in war, boy. The orcs have sacrificed much...
Rexxar
I know you have. But my people could not endure that.
Warchief Blackhand
Defeat me, and I'll consider your request.

Turn 6

Warchief Blackhand
You fight well for your kind. I have need of champions like you.

Death

Warchief Blackhand
Cease this! You've persuaded me. But in return, you must serve the Horde.
Rexxar
I swear it!

Defeat

Warchief Blackhand
You are only a half-orc, unworthy of my attention.

Lore[]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Blackhand was the chieftain of the mighty Blackrock clan and the first Warchief of the Old Horde until he was killed by Orgrim Doomhammer near the end of the First War. He was known throughout Draenor and Azeroth alike as a brutal tyrant.
