General Comments

Bwonsamdi, the Dead is a very underwhelming card on the surface, but opens up the door for many powerful combos. It is primarily designed to be used in combination with Spirit of the Dead to allow you to shuffle powerful cards into you deck that can be instantly redrawn and played. If you are also able to also shuffle Bwonsamdi into your deck, many infinite combo possibilities become available.


Constructed Play

In Constructed, Bwonsamdi, the Dead is played in very niche combo decks that use it in combination with Spirit of the Dead to create infinite combos.



In Arena, Bwonsamdi, the Dead is a great card. While the combo possibilities are quite limited in Arena, card draw is incredibly valuable. Drawing 1-Cost minions specifically also has the added bonus of greatly increasing the value of every card you draw for the rest of the game.
