To edit these notes, go to Template:Gnomish Experimenter notes.

  • Despite the card's wording, this card's effect is considered a replace effect rather than a transform effect, since it occurs outside the battlefield.
  • The Chicken that this card creates cost 1 mana, it is not the same minion created by  Poultryizer which costs 0 mana.
  • Gnomish Experimenter's Battlecry occurs in two steps, first the card draw, then the replacement. Therefore, card draw triggered effects will interact with the original card, not the Chicken. However, it is still a single Battlecry, so it will complete even if a triggered effect kills the Experimenter halfway through.
    • When Gnomish Experimenter draws  Flame Leviathan, first Flame Leviathan's effect goes off, then the card is replaced with a chicken.[1] The Flame Leviathan will still be replaced even if its on-draw effect destroys the Gnomish Experimenter.[1]
    • If a player with a  Chromaggus and a Gnomish Experimenter draws a minion card, Chromaggus will produce a copy of the original card, and not the Chicken which is transformed later.

  • The art for this card's generated Chicken minion was commissioned by Ben Brode to be especially angry, in reference to the Hearthstone podcast The Angry Chicken.[2] Brode originally wanted to alter the art for  Angry Chicken in tribute to the podcast, but changed his mind after deciding a change to established art would be too confusing for players.[3]
