N'Zoth, the Corruptor is a neutral minion. This card can be obtained from Whispers of the Old Gods 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

N'Zoth, the Corruptor is one of the four Old Gods which are the cornerstone of the Lore behind the Whispers of the Old Gods expansion. The theme for each of the Old Gods is that they cost 10 Mana, but have a game-changing effect. The ability of N'Zoth to bring multiple large minions into play at the same time is definitely in keeping with that theme, and when placed in the correct deck, N'Zoth can win the game immediately.

2. Constructed Play

N'Zoth the Corruptor was originally played with many Deathrattle minions, but although it is still sometimes played that way, decks have begun to play it with a small number of very powerful ones. If N'Zoth brings back one Tirion Fordring, then it is a valuable card. If it can bring back other minions as well, or if it has a chance of bringing back two Tirions at once (for example, in decks with Stonehill Defender), then it can be game defining. As the pace of Hearthstone has slowed down, it is no longer quite as much of a handicap to have an 10 Mana card sitting in your hand, and so the required power level for N'Zoth to be of use has come down slightly. This has caused N'Zoth to find uses as a value card in some Control decks, as opposed to it being a win condition.

3. Arena

N'Zoth the Corruptor is not a good Legendary for Arena. The stats of the card are extremely poor for 10 Mana, and you do not usually get offered enough good Deathrattle minions for N'Zoth's Battlecry to make up for the shortfall. If you already have several Deathrattle minions when N'Zoth is offered, then the card is much more powerful, and you should upgrade it accordingly.
