General Comments

Corpsetaker was introduced in Knights of the Frozen Throne and expanded on the idea that a card can act differently depending on the remaining composition of your deck. In this instance, the card has terrible base stats, but gains an ability based on other cards. Playing the numbers game, Corpsetaker is about 1.5 Mana overcosted on stats alone, which means it will need to gain two abilities to get close to the correct cost, and three or four to make it a card worthy of consideration.


Constructed Play

In Constructed, Corpsetaker is not impactful enough to specifically build a deck around. However, if a deck happens to organically contain enough of the Keywords to allow it to regularly gain three buffs, then it can be included under those circumstances.



Corpsetaker will often not get enough of the required buffs in Arena to be of great value, and is therefore a below average card in the format. Be alert, however, to the composition of your deck. If you feel you will regularly get three of the Keywords to stick on Corpsetaker, then the card will become draftable.
