Queen Sylvanus Windrunner

Hang on a sec: Banshee Ranger isn't a class! Anyway the Queen of the Banshees might not seem as powerful as Saurfang, but what she lacks in brute force she makes up for in cunningness. You other Undead dudes can’t be destroyed eh? That’s one invincible Ophelia Barrows. I detect some crazy Undead combo decks on the horizon people.

Constructed 5/5
Sealed 5/5
Casual 5/5
Raid 5/5

Queen Sylvanas Windrunner

Cost: 9
Attack: 5
Health: 7

Other Undead heroes and allies in your party can't be destroyed.

Today we look at a card that may seem useful, but in fact isn’t at all.
Undead just hasn’t got the support it needs to be a success at tournaments, and this card isn’t the support either.

Collectors love this card, players don’t the costs are to high and the effect isn’t good enough.

Sealed: 2/5
Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 3/5

See you on the Battlefield
Warchief Thrall

Sovelin Queen Sylvanas Windrunner
Horde Unique Ally
Cost: 9
Other Undead heroes and allies in your party can't be destroyed.

Today we look at another epic horde ally from TDP. This card is pretty amazing. The cost is definitely high, but the effect is what you want. She really helps with Doomguard and Valthak, and her combo with Ophelia is simply broken. A protector that doesn't die, and removes allies from your opponent's graveyard. Soul Link just may get a revival.

Sylvanas also combos very well with the quest A New Plague.  The requirement for the quest is that you and your opponent must have an ally. Then you choose to destroy one of your undead allies (who won't die), but your opponent loses his.

Plus, if you run an undead hero (why wouldn't you with Sylvanas), you get to draw a card as well.

She also helps you keep hand control. Dark Cleric Ismantal is an undead with the effect of "pay 4 -> deal 1 shadow damage to target hero or ally. That character's controller discards a card for each damage dealt in this way. Use only  on your turn." Normally, she would be a target for your opponent. But with Sylvanas keeping her immortal, you are free to re-use her effect without worrying about her dying on you.

Sealed: 1.5/5 (You probably won't have too many undead allies, and her cost is way too high.)

Constructed: 5/5 (A deck built around her would be devastating.)

Casual: 5/5 (Same as above)

Raid: 4/5 (As long as you have an immortal protector to keep her safe from Onyxia, she'll pretty much win the match for you. As long as Onyxia doesn't drop a "destroy all allies" on you.)
Red Comet
Queen Sylvanas Windrunner

This cards effect speaks for itself. Like all racial leaders her effect aids the many decent undead allies the horde has and it's few undead heroes.

Expect to see Valthak Spirit Drinker and this card in a lot of decks very soon.


Card Rating:

Sealed: 2/5

I'm sorry to say that unless you are extremely lucky this card is not going to be very useful.

Constructed: 4/5

You'll be hearing a lot of wailing at tournaments not from this card but rather the people who've lost to it.

Casual: 4/5

See constructed


Not very good in a raid but the right deck might be able to pull it off.
