|This Minion triggers an effect immediately before being summoned from the Action Bar.|
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Will not trigger if you summon a Minion using a spell such as Nether Summoning, it has to be summoned from your action bar.
- While Opening Gambit is the most common ability, each card has a unique effect!
- It’s important to note that the trigger occurs before the minion is summoned - Minions such as Hearth-Sister will swap positions before you capture a Mana Spring tile!
- Therefore the effect also happens if the minion instantly dies because of Flash Reincarnation or Kujata.
- Opening Gambit should not be confused with Bond, which requires a friendly minion from the same tribe to be on the battlefield and triggers even if the minion is not summoned from the player's action bar.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
- Plan when you'll play an Opening Gambit during your turn carefully. Some are much better at the beginning of your turn, while others require you to position first.
- Minions with Opening Gambit have less Attack and Health than equally costed minions that don't, so make sure when you summon them you're getting the most out of their ability!
