Excavate
Dig for increasingly rarer treasures. Resets after the highest Rarity.

Excavate is a mechanic introduced in Showdown in the Badlands. Cards with Excavate add a random treasure to the player's hand with its rarity corresponding to the number of times that player has Excavated this game, resetting once the maximum rarity has been reached. Additionally, Death Knights, Mages, Paladins, Rogues, Shamans, Warlocks, and Warriors can generate a legendary minion from their class on their fourth Excavation.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The first Excavate will yield a random common treasure, the second a rare, and the third an epic. Death Knight, Mage, Paladin, Rogue, Shaman, Warlock, and Warrior generate a unique legendary minion on their fourth Excavate, which is based on their class rather than being random. After reaching the maximum rarity, the cycle will restart at common and repeat.
    • Other classes can still use Excavate cards, but will reset to common after Excavating an epic treasure.
  • Unlike most other uncollectible cards, treasures have rarity. This is primarily cosmetic, and indicates to the player which treasure tier they are on.
  • Every treasure costs the same as the other treasures of the same rarity. That is, 1 mana for common, 2 for rare, 3 for epic, and 4 for legendary.
