A remove from game effect causes cards to be removed entirely from the game. Removing cards from the game is different to discarding or destroying them, as cards that are removed from the game don't activate any on-discard effects and don't count as having died that game.

Remove from deck[edit | edit source]

Remove from deck is the most common remove from game effect. A remove from deck effect causes cards to be removed directly from the player's deck, without entering their hand. Removed cards are taken from the top of the deck, and are revealed to both players. Attempting to draw a card when the hand is already full ("overdrawing") results in the card being removed from the deck.

Remove from deck effects are very similar to discard effects, but are not treated as such for game purposes. For example, they will not trigger discard-related effects such as  Tiny Knight of Evil, or  Fist of Jaraxxus. The key distinction is that discard effects remove cards from the hand, while remove from deck effects remove cards from the deck.

Remove from deck effects never cause fatigue.[1] This is because they do not actually draw cards, but simply remove them.[2]

Remove from hand[edit | edit source]

A remove from hand effect causes cards to be removed directly from a player's hand. This is different to discarding in the following ways:

  • Cards removed from the hand don't activate any on-discard effects.
  • Cards removed from the hand aren't always revealed to the opponent.

Remove from game[edit | edit source]

Some cards are removed from the game from zones other than the hand or deck, such as the battlefield.

Removing cards from the battlefield is different to destroying them in the following ways:

  • Cards removed from the battlefield don't appear in resurrection pools.
  • Cards removed from the battlefield don't count as being destroyed, therefore don't activate any Deathrattles or other death-related effects.
