General Comments

Kobold Illusionist is a situational card that has the potential to be very powerful. The Deathrattle effect summons a copy of a random minion from your hand, giving you more control over the minion that is summoned, compared to Barnes. However, as it is a Deathrattle effect, it can potentially be triggered prematurely by opponents, allowing them to easily remove the minion copied by the Deathrattle effect.


Constructed Play

Kobold Illusionist is a great fit for Miracle Rogue decks that run a small number of minions with extremely powerful effects, such as Gadgetzan Auctioneer, Malygos, and Questing Adventurer.



Kobold Illusionist is a below-Average card in Arena. Due to the random nature of Arena decks, the Deathrattle effect will generate a 1/1 minion with no special effect most of the time.
