General Comments

Lesser Onyx Spellstone is a card that gains strength as you play Deathrattle minions while it is in your hand. Although it is initially very weak, it gains strength as it is upgraded further to Onyx Spellstone and Greater Onyx Spellstone. The requirement of three Deathrattle minions per upgrade may seem steep, however there are many Rogue tools available that can accelerate the process, such as Shadowstep.


Constructed Play

Lesser Onyx Spellstone is a card that can be considered for slow Deathrattle Rogue decks that aim to utilise N'Zoth, the Corruptor.



In Arena, Lesser Onyx Spellstone is a weak card. As it is very unlikely you will have access to enough Deathrattle minions to upgrade the card, it will simply be a more expensive version of Deadly Shot and should only be considered if you are desperately in need of removal.
