Infinite Toki

Infinite Toki Temporal Tavern


Toki is a fun hero that is all about hitting a "highroll" or using the Hero Power to find much stronger minions than usual in order to win games. Toki has been through a number of changes over the lifespan of Battlegrounds, but the Bronze dragonflight finds herself strongest in the midrange with her Hero Power offering two new minions from a higher tier. The idea with Toki is to employ the hero power as soon as you reach Tiers 3 and 4 in order to find strong minions ahead of schedule. This often translates to hitting the hero power on Turns 7-10 to define your direction and minions.



As is implied by Toki's Hero Power, you take the strongest minions that appear across Bob's Tavern. This will often define your direction and power level through the game when you start using your Toki refresh. This can lead to any number of viable compositions without much need for planning, however, there are still some good general ideas to remember when choosing minions.

In lobbies where Mechs and Beasts are available, a Menagerie build can often tip the scales in your favor. Keep an eye out for 3- and 4-drops like Cave Hydra, Mechano-Egg, and Deflect-o-Bot to help anchor your board and build with Tea Master Theotar and Mantid Queen in the lategame.

Other build-around minions to look for that do not lend themselves to a Menagerie build include Baron Rivendare for Beasts, Brann Bronzebeard for Murlocs, Glowscale for Naga, Nomi, Kitchen Nightmare for Elementals, Prized Promo-Drake and Tarecgosa for Dragons, and Agamaggan, the Great Boar for Quilboar.


Important Tips & Interactions

Toki is an excellent option due to the ability to search for higher-tier minions long before some of your opponents even have a chance to see them in their taverns. It is advised you play a normal curve until you reach tier 3 and begin to make use of the Hero Power there. It is inadvisable to use it on Tiers 1 or 2 because the value for using the gold is much lower and as a result you may stay on a lower tier for longer than necessary.

Your midrange and late game should be supplemented by your Hero Power to decide what direction your build is taking. It is perfectly fine to take a tempo option like Savannah Highmane in order to stay alive even though it may not fit your build.

It is also important to remember that your Hero Power is essentially an additional refresh in addition to it adding two minions from a higher tier. The minions from the higher tier will also always take up the last two slots of minions available to purchase. This is different than Maiev as they do not generate in addition to the 4 or 5 minions that normally generate in tiers 3-5.
