Notes

To edit these notes, go to Template:Freezing Trap notes.

  • Freezing Trap triggers on the same step of the attack sequence as  Snake Trap,  Misdirection,  Explosive Trap, Forgetful effects, and several other Secrets. Therefore, all such effects occur in order of play.
    • For example, Freezing Trap played before Misdirection will cause an attacker to be returned, while Misdirection remains hidden. Freezing Trap played after will cause the attacker to be returned after triggering Misdirection, wasting the Misdirection effect.
  • Freezing Trap (and Misdirection) will not trigger if the attacker is neutralized by another effect before it can activate. This occurs when it has left play (such as by a return to hand effect), is mortally wounded (0 or less Health), or is being destroyed (such as by  Vaporize).[1]
  • This card's triggered effect has two steps:
    • First it returns the targeted minion to its owner's hand;
    • Then, it creates a cost-modification enchantment attached to it that increases its mana cost by 2.


Lore

In World of Warcraft, Freezing Trap is a level 28 Hunter ability that causes the first enemy to approach the trap to be frozen. While frozen, the enemy is unable to take any action for up to 1 minute, although any damage caused will break the ice.

  • VSC Logo.pngPatch 23.0.0.135540 (2022-04-05):
    • 2022-04-08: Fixed a bug where secrets played after Freezing Trap would not trigger after Freezing Trap activated to remove the trigger condition. For example, after this bug fix, if a player plays Freezing Trap and then Explosive Trap, and the enemy attacks the player with a minion, the Freezing Trap will activate to return the attacking minion and then the Explosive Trap will trigger.
