Table of Contents

Effigy is a Mage-only spell. This card can be obtained from The Grand Tournament packs. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Effigy is a card that can put your opponent in a difficult position. It introduces another consideration when playing around Mage Secrets, since you will have to choose which minion you wish to kill in order to activate Effigy. As with most Secrets, it is significantly more powerful when summoned from a Mad Scientist.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Effigy can be a very powerful inclusion in a Tempo based deck. Since these decks can already feature decks with low stats to compensate for their effects, such as Bomb Lobber, Effigy can then re-summon these minions as superior ones.

3. Arena

Effigy is one of the stronger Mage Secrets in Arena. Since it protects your board for you, and makes it more likely that you will get to maintain a minion on the board, one of the primary goals of Arena, it can be a very effective card.
