The Witchwood Guide
Battlecry: Discover a powerful Artifact.
He's very good at retrieving artifacts. From other people's museums.
This is how Discover should be. You get the same 3 options that are all good depending on the current boardstate and your opponent can play around them by guessing which one you took with no randomness involved. I wish we got more cards like this instead of heavily random cards like Kabal Courier that could pull almost anything with no counterplay.
RAKAAAAAN! THE SUPREME ORNITHOLOGIST!
I'd play it in a quest druid.
Do i play into polymorph or flamestrike, or pick the useless one. To many choices
the thing why this card isn't played in any deck in standard is that it is just too slow and it gives too few options,if it gave a proper boardclear or a removal it would actually be used in various control decks because of the value of some of it's cards,but having to wait a turn for it's effect to take place is just too slow in the current meta,but it's ok if you're in a budget as a replacemeant for cards like ysera(in non-dragon decks),ragnaros and alextrasza(mostly in the old wallet warrior)
it's also very good in reno mage because it combos well with medivh
Is this card worth keeping?
Yes. It's a decent replacement for a strong minion.
I've tried fitting him into multiple decks. He is very powerful but his problems are that:
1) He has no immediate impact and you can only play him when you are winning.
2) Kazakus is a better version of him basically.
Kazakus is also only for priest, mage, and warlock, AND only works with no duplicates, i think there's a reason why he's a little bit more powerful.
This is one of the most satisfying legendaries to use, yet I have no idea why.
I like how all of his Artifacts force your opponent to play the rest of the game differently. After Rafaam hits the board, the opponent has to simultaneously:
If you're playing a control deck, on some turn your opponent is not going to be able to do one of those things, and that's when your Artifact comes out.
I finished LOE on regular but I didn't get this guy. Is it bugged for some reason or do I have to finish it in heroic?
Seriously an underrated legendary, thought it was really shit at first but the 10 mana spells u get are fucking crazy, and its body is not that bad 7/8
This is one of my favorite legendaries.
First of all,a 17/18 on turn 10 is almost impossible to kill.
Second of all,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdM9TxaMLJs
I tried this on a mage deck using Summoning Stone and Arch-Thief Rafaam is simply amazing if you manage to keep atleast one Summoning Stone alive to play the lantern of power. Getting 20-30 mana out of a 10 mana spell is simply great.
Also, summoning a Deathwing using this is even better, since Deathwings battlecry doesnt trigger.
This card is in really good spot now, especially for tempo warrior.
Always pick the zombie's IMO
the only value card to pick :)
Nah, definitely not always. Buff is fantastic finisher if you have board advantage.
