General Comments

Val'kyr Soulclaimer adds to the long line of Warrior cards that have a positive effect when they take damage. Due to the low attack value of the card, the damage dealt will usually need to be done by yourself rather than your opponent, by using such cards as Whirlwind.


Constructed Play

Val'kyr Soulclaimer requires a lot of work to be relevant in Constructed. It is best used with Whirlwind effects, and other cards such as Acolyte of Pain that also benefit from those effects. One of the problems to solve if you are considering playing this in a deck is how to not injure the Ghouls when you injure your Soulclaimer the second time.



Val'kyr Soulclaimer is a poor card in Arena. It will often not have the required synergy present in the deck to summon a Ghoul, and without triggering its ability, the card has nowhere near the stats required to be played as a 3-drop.
