To edit these notes, go to Template:C'Thun, the Shattered notes.

  • At the Start of Game, C'Thun, the Shattered is removed from player's deck. The four pieces of C'Thun, ( Body of C'Thun,  Eye of C'Thun,  Heart of C'Thun and  Maw of C'Thun) are then shuffled into the player's deck.
  • After playing all four pieces successfully, C'Thun, the Shattered is shuffled into player's deck.
  • C'Thun, the Shattered cannot be randomly generated or Discovered.[1]
  • It is impossible to draw C'Thun, the Shattered during mulligan.[2]
  • In these scenarios, Pieces of C'Thun will not advance your counter:
    • Being Countered.[3]
    • The same piece is being played/cast more than once before C'Thun is assembled.
      • After C'Thun is assembled, the tracker will be reset to 0 and all pieces are considered as not being cast yet.
    • Stolen and cast by your opponent.
      • Your opponent will have the counter advanced instead.
  • C'Thun, the Shattered triggers after  Genn Greymane and  Baku the Mooneater, allow Genn to trigger but preventing Baku.
  • If there are multiple C'Thuns, the Shattered in the starting deck (not possible in constructed, but possible in Arena and some Tavern Brawls), they will all trigger and shuffle a separate set of four spells for each C'Thun. While the animation of C'Thun breaking will be shown only once, the shuffling animation will be shown the correct number of times.[4]

For general lore, see  C'Thun.

This card's mechanics resemble C'Thun's original boss encounter in the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj. Players would have to fight his body parts individually, starting with his eye before moving onto his body and occasionally fighting inside his stomach. The  Heart of C'Thun is unique to Hearthstone, but visually resembles the Heart of Y'Shaarj.


  • C'Thun, the Shattered's flavor text refers to an oft-quoted scene in the first episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, where the protagonist Yugi Muto/Yami Yugi faces off his rival Seto Kaiba. After Kaiba mocks Yugi for using his grandfather's deck, Yugi declares, "My grandpa's deck has no pathetic cards, Kaiba." He then proceeds to draw Exodia the Forbidden One, adding, "But it does contain - the unstoppable Exodia!" The alternate win condition effect of the card then triggers, allowing Yugi to win the duel.
    • C'Thun, the Shattered is similarly based on the iconic Exodia, which requires the player to draw into the shattered pieces of Exodia (represented by five cards) to instantly win the duel.
  • During pre-release, C'Thun, the Shattered's entry quote was "My awakening brings upon a new age." It was presumably lengthened to match its long Battlecry animation.
  • C'Thun, the Shattered's original entry quote was "My awakening brings upon a new age. Pray to your gods so that your pleas may go unanswered. When your mind and body lie broken, you will know only one master. Look up and weep tears of joy as you call my name.".[5] It got cut short for time.[6]
