Notes

To edit these notes, go to Template:Millhouse Manastorm notes.

  • This card's Battlecry creates a cost-modification enchantment attached to the enemy player: this means that it will not be cancelled if the enemy's hero is replaced.[1] This enchantment sets the mana cost of spell cards in the opponents's hand to 0, and wears off at the end the opponent's turn.
  • This card's effect follows the general rule that multiple cost modifications take effect in order of play: for additional details, see Mana cost.
Example: If  Loatheb and Millhouse Manastorm are both played in a turn, their effects will happen in order: if Loatheb is played followed by Millhouse Manastorm, all enemy spells will cost 0 mana; if Millhouse Manastorm is played followed by Loatheb, all enemy spells will cost 5 mana.[2][3]

Lore

Warcraft Wiki icon.pngThis section uses content from the Warcraft Wiki.
Millhouse "Jerimus" Manastorm is a wily gnome mage that first appeared as a prisoner trapped in the Arcatraz wing of Tempest Keep. In order to acquire The Tempest Key, formerly required to unlock The Eye wing of Tempest Keep, players must enter Arcatraz on heroic mode, and make sure that Millhouse survives until the death of Harbinger Skyriss. He is released during the second wave of the Harbinger Skyriss encounter in the Arcatraz. His rescue was also required part of Trial of the Naaru: Tenacity.
Later on, Manastorm appeared scheming with the Twilight's Hammer in Deepholm and yet later in the Brawler's Guild in Stormwind City and Orgrimmar as an opponent. If the player upgrades an inn to Level 2 at their Tier 2 garrison on Draenor, Manastorm will show up with a dungeon quest, unlocking him as a follower. He plays a prominent role in the Tirisgarde Campaign.
Millhouse is married to  Millificent Manastorm, with whom he has a love-hate relationship. The two are fought in the Manastorms encounter in the Other Side.

Trivia

  • The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Servants of the Betrayer" series, for the card Millhouse Manastorm.
  • During the game's alpha, Millhouse was a 2/2 with a Battlecry that generated a MEGA-BLAST!!! card for the player; a 10 mana legendary spell which dealt 5 damage to all enemies. This is referenced by the Millhouse Manastorm boss in the tutorial, when he states "Just you wait until I have 10 mana!".
  • The final version of Millhouse was designed as "a card that had a lot of possibilities, a lot of open-endedness".[4] It was not until it was released for testing that players began recounting tales of Millhouse's Battlecry leading to catastrophic defeat; Eric Dodds cited an example of a turn-1 Millhouse leading to a turn-2 Ragnaros for the opposing player, which the designers never "had any clue was going to happen".[4]
  • Millhouse Manastorm's entrance music is taken from Battle for Gnomeregan.
  • When facing  Millificent Manastorm in The Dalaran Heist, having five copies of Millhouse on the field at any given time will instantly kill Millificent.
