General Comments

Kobold Hermit provides the ability to Choose a basic Totem, which is a stronger ability than it might seem. Totems generated by the Hero Power are always different to existing Totems on the board, which means that when you have them all, your opponent needs to remove more than one to stop you simply recreating that Totem on the following turn. If you can use the Hermit and your Hero Power in one turn, you can often reach this desirable state. If the Hermit is played after generating a Totem that you would like, you can generate a second copy of that Totem with the Hermit.


Constructed Play

Many Shaman decks like to build wide boards, that is to say, boards with many minions. Bloodlust, Flametongue Totem, Evolve, and many others can be played in such decks. Kobold Hermit is a card which can be played in such decks. The Totem which it generates can be used alongside Maelstrom Portal to get extra Spell Damage, or as a Taunt to protect valuable minions such as Mana Tide Totem.



In Arena, Kobold Hermit is an average card. If you get several cards that interact with wide boards, such as Bloodlust or Flametongue Totem, then it can be ranked significantly higher.
