  • The copy minion has its stats set to 1/1 by a special enchantment. This can be removed through a Silence or returning it to the controlling player's hand after it is played, restoring the minion to its original stats.[1][2]
  • No enchantments attached to the target minion will be copied. This includes stat changes, granted Deathrattles, etc.[3] Silences also will not be copied. Any damage dealt to the target minion will not be copied, due to the copy's stats being specifically set to 1/1.
  • A Shadowcaster copy of  C'Thun will be a 1/1. Any rituals played after it will buff this C'Thun above 1/1, however.
  • This card's Battlecry also creates a cost-modification enchantment attached to the generated card that sets its mana cost to 1. This enchantment follows the general rule that multiple cost modifications take effect in order of play: for additional details, see Mana cost.
