Best Knights of the Frozen Throne Legendary Cards to Craft

The Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion has some interesting, and powerful legendaries.

The changes to pack openings now mean that we can’t rip open loads of duplicates, which is awesome.

But with 23 new legendaries, you will need to open almost 500 packs to pull 23 legendaries on average!

The best way to make as many competitive META decks with your budget is to dust the bad legendaries and craft the best legendaries.

Here are the best of the bunch from the new expansion – Knights of the Frozen Throne.

Best Knights of the Frozen Throne Legendary Cards to Craft

Neutral Legendaries

The Lich King

The Lich King HS Legendary Card

This guy had to be really strong, and it’s kind of nuts.

The Death Knight cards are incredibly strong, and the 8/8 for 8-mana is pretty decent.

It’s a better Ysera, can fit the Medivh slot if concerned about weapon removal, and will be a staple in a lot of decks – you need this card.


You can see all the Death Knight cards The Lich King generates here.

Death Knight Portraits

They made the Death Knights strong for most classes and almost all are playable. If you really like a certain class you can probably play the Death Knight and have a 50%+ win rate, here are the strongest of the bunch:

Malfurion the Pestilent

Malfurion the Pestilant HS Druid Death Knight PortraitDruid received some powerful defensive tools in Knights of the Frozen Throne and this Death Knight may be the best of them all.

The Hero Power is +3 attack or + gain 3 armor, with the new taunt cards Druid is going to remain one of the top classes.


Uther of the Ebon Blade

Uther of the Ebon Blade HS Paladin Death Knight PortraitI love this card, it combines healing with an insanely powerful hero power and a bunch of fun.

If you play midrange or control Pally this is a must inclusion.

Shadowreaper Anduin

Shadowreaper Auduin HS Priest Death Knight Portrait CardYou will clear all the threats on board and add a hero power that does 2 damage. Synergies perfectly with the new lifesteal mechanic and pushes control Priest decks up a notch.

Frost Lich Jaina

Frost Lich Jaina HS Mage Death Knight PortraitProducing Water Elementals with lifesteal in a class that needs healing and a little extra value in the longer games opens up some interesting deck building ideas for Mage.

Bloodreaver Gul’dan

Bloodreaver Gul'dan HS Warlock Death Knight Portrait

Warlock is back in this expansion, summoning all the demons that died in the game combined with some of the other new cards is insane.






Class Legendaries

With Death Knights being so powerful the class legendaries feel a little underwhelming.

Maybe that was a deliberate ploy on the designers part, maybe not. Either way, there are three that are really impactful and will be played for sure:


Hadronox HS Druid Legendary CardThe blueprint for the strongest Druid archetype has been laid out for us by the cards released in this expansion.

It’s all about the taunts and being defensive with control archetypes.

So dropping Hadronox late game is a huge value play.


The tokens summoned by Sindragosa generate random legendaries, so combined with the Frost Lich Death Knight card you have a ton of value for control mage.

It’s a dragon too which is worth noting.

Bolvar, Fireblood

Bolvar, Fireblood HS Paladin Legendary Card

I think this is one of the sleepers of the set. For 5-mana and 7 health this guy will stick on board, then it’s just up to you to pop those shields.

Using this guy as a 5/7 or 7/7 isn’t going to be too hard, so a good inclusion in aggro/divine shield decks.

Which Knights of the Frozen Throne Legendaries to Dust?

With every new expansion comes a bunch of new legendaries, but they are not all worth keeping and some will never be needed in competitive decks.

With the new pack changes we will not be opening a bunch of duplicates to dust, so it’s even more important you dust up those bad legendaries and use the dust to craft the best ones.

Here are some of the legendaries from Knights of the Frozen Throne that will not see serious competitive play. Dust em’, recycle, and make some of the best legendaries from Knights of the Frozen Throne:

Which Knights of the Frozen Throne Legendaries to Dust?

Death Knights to Dust

Deathstalker Rexxar

Deathstalker Rexxar HS Hunter Portrait Card

Most of us wanted to see some awesome Hunter cards to make it a Tier 1 class again, but this Death Knight isn’t the card.

It’s a value card with the Build-a-Beast hero power, but Hunter isn’t a value class.

Should be good for some meme decks.



Thrall, Deathseer

Thrall Deathseer HS Shaman Death Knight Portrait

Another card that puts fun before winning, Thrall, Deathseer.

Only playable when you have a board, the evolve mechanic is inconsistant, to say the least, and you lose one of the best hero powers in the game.




Class Legendaries to Dust

Archbishop Benedictus

Archbishop Benedictus HS Priest Legendary CardThrowing a copy of your opponent’s deck into yours means you have no real plan or idea how you’re going to win the game.

Good luck!





Lilian Voss

Lilian Voss HS Rogue CardRogue has awesome, cheap spells. Swapping them for random ones is more likely to disrupt your win condition than increase it.

Combined with Ethereal Peddler in a burgle deck there is potential for some RNG memes.




Neutral Legendaries to Dust

Prince Valanar, Prince Taldaram, and Prince Keleseth

The trio of Prince cards open up some interesting deck building ideas, but they aren’t strong enough to be auto-includes in any types of decks. Worth more to you as dust.
