Notes

To edit these notes, go to Template:Snipe notes.

  • Like the other Secrets that trigger when your opponent plays a minion from their hand ( Mirror Entity,  Sacred Trial,  Repentance), Snipe triggers in the After Play Phase following the Battlecry Phase. This means that all effects and death processing related to the minion's Battlecry resolve before the game queues and resolves Secrets such as Snipe. For example, if you play a Twilight Drake into Snipe, it will gain Health from its Battlecry before Snipe triggers and deals 4 damage.
    • Snipe,  Sacred Trial,  Mirror Entity,  Repentance and  Potion of Polymorph all trigger in order of play.
    • Snipe does not trigger if the minion is mortally wounded/pending destroy, such as from Sacred Trial or Mirror Entity + Knife Juggler.[1]
    • Repentance still triggers if Snipe mortally wounds the minion before it.[2]
    • Mirror Entity does not trigger if Snipe mortally wounds the minion before it.[3]
    • Sacred Trial still triggers if Snipe mortally wounds the minion before it. (This is probably a bug.)[4]
    • Snipe will trigger on the sheep made by  Potion of Polymorph if Snipe was played second. Conversely, Potion of Polymorph will not trigger if Snipe mortally wounded the minion first.[5]
  • Snipe, like all other Secrets that directly deal damage, is affected by Spell Damage and  Prophet Velen.
