General Comments

Ornary Tortoise is a minion that gains a small boost in stats at the cost of a negative Battlecry. The card functions similarly to Pit Lord, but with a smaller boost to stats. The card can be particularly useful when used in combination with additional Beast synergies.


Constructed Play

While Ornery Tortoise does not see high-level Constructed play, it is most suited to aggressive Hunter decks that can capitalise on the additional Tempo and Beast tag the card offers.



In Arena, Ornery Tortoise is an average card. The nature of Arena makes negative Battlecry quite irrelevant, resulting in the card being a very solid 3 Mana 3/5.
