Webspinner is a common hunter minion card, from the Naxxramas set.

Other versions[]

How to get[]

Two copies of regular Webspinner are obtained by completing the hunter Class Challenge in Curse of Naxxramas.

As a Wild format card, both regular and golden versions of Webspinner can also be crafted for the following amounts:

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Webspinner 40 5
Golden Webspinner 400 50

Core set[]

Two copies of regular Webspinner (Core) are obtained for raising hunter to level 1.

Two copies of golden Webspinner (Core) are obtained for winning 50 games as hunter.

Webspinner (Core) is uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Generated by[]

As well as being collected in decks, this card can also be generated by the following card.

  • As with all random effects, all possible cards are equally likely to be drawn; a player is as likely to draw King Krush as they are to draw another Webspinner.
  • If augmented by Baron Rivendare's ongoing effect, this minion's Deathrattle will generate two Beast cards for the controlling player. These draws will be made separately, and may therefore result in two of the same Beast, or more likely two different Beasts.[3]


A solid 1 mana minion that cycles itself with another Beast. The body provided by Webspinner is useful for follow-ups such as Crackling Razormaw or Fresh Scent.

Jeweled Macaw is a similar minion, but offers a card faster, potentially immediately creating a 2-mana Beast for your Mana curve. However, it lacks synergies with cards like Feign Death, Play Dead, and Necromechanic, giving Webspinner an edge in Deathrattle heavy builds.

Shimmerfly is another alternative to Webspinner. Hunter spells are generally more powerful than a random Beast, but Beasts will more consistently synergize with cards like Kill Command and Dire Frenzy.
