General Comments

Big Bad Voodoo is a powerful Deathrattle effect that functions as a combination of Ancestral Spirit and Evolve. The Evolve effect of the card makes it particularly useful on high-cost minions, especially those that are mostly played for their Battlecry effects and, unlike Ancestral Spirit, it is not restricted to minions that are powerful on their own.


Constructed Play

In Constructed, Big Bad Voodoo typically fits into Shaman decks that uses a large number of understatted minions, such as those with powerful Battlecries or that can be played for much less Mana than the cost on the card.



In Arena, Big Bad Voodoo is a great card. It will nearly always give a minion worth much more than the 2 Mana paid for the card and is an excellent card to use before trading a minion when fighting for board control.
