General Comments

Fatespinner was introduced in the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion and brought with it the new mechanic of a secret Deathrattle. Although Fatespinner's stats are poor for its casting cost, it brings much needed AoE to the Druid class. The element of choice with the Deathrattle opens up many options for deckbuilders.


Constructed Play

Druid has lacked good AoE spells in constructed play since the beginning of the game. Although Starfall has sometimes been playable, Fatespinner seems to be a significant upgrade. The minion buff will be useful in decks that go wide, such as Aggro Druid. Not only is the 5/3 body a threat to go face, but opponents will want to kill off any minions that might be buffed before killing the Fatespinner. This presents a difficult problem for those opponents.



Fatespinner is a good card in Arena. The Deathrattle's versatility means that it can be used as both a comeback mechanism, and a way to victory when already in front. With five Attack, it is likely that your opponent will have to deal with this immediately, meaning that you will often get Deathrattle that you require sooner rather than later.
