Faraz Khan Hello everyone, this is my first COTD review, so I hope you enjoy it.
Wraith Scythe
Cost: 4
When your hero deals combat damage, it heals that amount of damage from itself.

Interesting weapon. On it's own it deals 2 heals 2, but any deck that would be running this is gonna have deathdealer breastplate and stronghold gauntlets. That means dealing 5 damage and healing 5. It's pretty good against Onyxia because it'll keep you alive, but you'll probably only use it's effect once or twice before it's destroyed. Krol blade and Cruel Hand would be much better options. In constructed there are a lot of better options. Annihilator, for one, doesn't heal you, but it cuts right through armor. Even Deathbringer has a more useful power, rending your opponent's protectors useless.

Shamans are better off with just the annihilator, and hunters have the ancient bone bow and krol blade. Warriors and paladins have enough armor that healing isn't really necessary. This card, however, owns sealed format. With the lack of armor, healing in a warrior deck, or even solodin, is invaluable.

Sealed: 4
Constructed: 2 (Too many better options)
Casual: 2
Raid: 2.5 (go for the Krol blade or Cruel Hand)


Wraith Scythe

The sight of this coming into play on an armoured up Paladin or Warrior is often enough to make you scoop; it’s just too hard to do enough damage to offset their healing. It’s insanely cheap to swing with, and with the Deathdealer its damage/heal goes from pretty good to great.

When your hero deals combat damage, it heals that amount of damage from itself.

Welcome back, to yet another COTD review.
This time we’ll be looking at a Melee weapon, but to be blunt about it, you don’t want to use this one a a weapon.
I personally prefer the Annihilator as a Melee weapon, it is also usable by the same classes and has a better effect and lower costs.
You leave this card behind and move on, there are better options out there.
Constructed 2/5: It isn’t all bad, but there are better options available.
Artwork 3/5: I do like a big Axe, easy for wielding down opponents.
See you on the Battlefield
Warchief Thrall

Wraith Scythe

Cost 4

Classes: Hunter, Paladin, Shaman, Warrior

Weapon – Axe                                    Melee (1)

When your hero deals combat damage, it heals that amount of damage from itself.

2 Melee Damage and, 2 to swing.


OK looks like we are looking at a weapon today, now we look at the cost and 4 is steep for a weapon that only does 2 damage, I’m a little weary about this card already but that’s ok. Now its class restrictions are average all the regular axe wielding classes nothing special there. Now we take a look at its effect, cool really cool healing and damage together is cool, it sends you and your opponent in opposite directions or it can be used to attack allies and not take so much of a beating in return. We look at the 2 required to swing and that’s ok as well that can be fixed by Skibi or some gauntlets so that’s ok as well.


As far as weapons go this card is wonderfully average. It is a card when put into the right deck can do wonders…  Take a look at my last article…   Go do it I will give you a sec… OK back cool. The cards healing potential is as high as its damage output. This is key, by adding in Rockbiter Weapon, you add 2 to the attack now each time you swing your healing 4 damage, now stack another one your doing 6 damage and healing 6, if you have a Wind totem out and enough resources your doing 12 damage and healing 12 damage…  Now that’s a little excessive and you’re not likely to see a huge combo like that in tournament play, but you get my point.


Sealed (2): Hunter is about speed, Paladins will like this, Shamans could sue it as well and Warriors can use it as well, does it pay for itself over time, that’s up to the user and their luck.

Constructed (2): I have never seen this card in constructed play, but that does not mean it’s a bad card just under used, just remember thunderheads were underused at one point.

Casual (3): For you and your buddies having fun this is a great card it has a duel purpose and can be a great weapon to swing around.

Raid (2): In a dragons world of expendable weapons this card is too much money for too little output, it might buy you an attack of 2 and a heal of 2 but for 6 resources that’s too high a cost.

Ca$hflow Wraith Scythe 3/14:Rare; Weapon;"When your hero deals combat damage, it heals that amount of damage from itself." I myself play a Paladin deck and I love cards like this. Build up some armor where you up your weapon ATK and protect yourself with some defense and youll be ready to smash. Theres nothing better than hitting someone with the 11 atk you have and then healing that much in return. Talk about a game changer. Plus, its cost, though kinda high, is still worth paying because of the benefits you gain from this card, especially if you get stuck and cant pull a Seal of Light out of your deck.


our card for today is the weapon Wraith Scythe (axe)
     A pay 4 to put in to play and pay 2 to attack with...not good so far but when it deals damage it your hero heal that much...ding ding ...this one is a winner, but still not the first choice for an equip card.  with armor on like DeathDealer BreastPlate and Masions ring on that is +3 to 2 which is 5 attack a.k.a. you heal five if you deal the full five...Runs best in a Paladin where you are playing seal of light which allows you to heal 2 when you attack with a weapon...+DeathDealer BreastPlate and Masions ring you heal 7, deal 5, just for paying 2 to attack...and what ever damage you take from the fight you will most likely heal it all and then some ....NICE
Constructed: 3.9/5
Sealed: 4/5 that what weapons you can get
