General Comments

Kill Command is a very versatile card in Hunter decks and can be used as both a removal spell, and as a finisher with 5 damage to the opponent's face. Although it is conditional on having a Beast in play, this is not usually an issue as Beast minions tend to fit well in Hunter decks. In addition to minions, many Hunter spells such as Unleash the Hounds and Animal Companion produce Beasts.


Constructed Play

In Constructed play, Kill Command is very powerful due to the ability to make sure that the Beast condition is almost always fulfilled. 5 Damage to face for only 3 Mana is a great deal in Aggro decks, while the ability to remove large Taunts is strong in both Midrange and Spell Hunter archetypes.



Kill Command is a strong card in Arena. It is usually played to efficiently remove large enemy minions, but even on the occasions that it has to remove a small minion, it is rarely bad value.
