  • Commander Rhyssa needs to be alive during the secret trigger phase for effect to work(For example if you play  Avenge and play Commander Rhyssa on your turn while you have  Bone Drake on board and your opponent casts  Hellfire which kills Rhyssa, the secret will trigger only once). Same for  Redemption.[1]
  • Contrary to her description (and the game does not make it clear) some activations are meaningless and others can not be triggered twice.
  •  Getaway Kodo can not be triggered twice, as it returns a minion to your hand rather than add a copy.
  • Meaningless Activation:  Autodefense Matrix (the attacked target does not regain the Divine Shield),  Sacred Trial (further summons are not affected),  Oh My Yogg! (this one can be worse when triggered twice)  Repentance.
  • All other Secrets works normaly when double or triple triggered (Rhyssa can be copied and her effect is persistent through all copies).

Lore[edit | edit source]

Commander Rhyssa is unique to Hearthstone. She is the leader of the Dalaran City Guard.[2]

Rhyssa appears to be a gnome paladin, even sporting a unique mechanostrider mount. If this is the case, she is the first known example of a gnome paladin, which is not available as a playable race-class combination in World of Warcraft.
