  • The Treants summoned by this spell are exhausted, and unable to attack on the turn they are summoned, even if the minions they replaced were ready to attack. This prevents the card from being useful for immediately bypassing Taunts (unless further minions with Charge are summoned), and strongly encourages the druid to make use of any available minions before using Poison Seeds. Also, note that the opponent's Treants will be able to attack immediately upon their turn.
  • Note that this spell's Summon effect takes place following the destruction of the minions. This means that Deathrattles will resolve while there are no minions on the board, reducing or entirely countering the effects of minions such as  Abomination and  Sylvanas Windrunner.

Order of events

  • Along with  Mimiron's Head,  Reincarnate and  Yogg-Saron, Hope's End, these cards utilize the Forced Death Phase mechanic to resolve deaths in the middle of a Phase, rather than at the end of the Phase.[1] This is in order to make room for the Treants to be summoned. If Poisons Seeds obeyed the normal card rules, due to the 7 minion limit, a player who had 5 minions before Poison Seeds was played would gain only 2 Treants, while a player with 7 minions on the board would gain none. Poisons Seeds therefore destroys minions immediately, before then summoning Treants.
  • However, any Deathrattles will still activate before Treants are summoned.[2] This can cause minions such as  Haunted Creeper to summon new minions, reducing available board space for Treants. Due to the 7 minion board limit, it is possible to waste potential Treants due to having minions such as Haunted Creeper on the board when Poison Seeds is played.
