  • The Headless Horseman features a lot of flavor text in its card text and the tokens. The card functions as follows:
    • The Headless Horseman destroys the highest-attack enemy minion, then shuffles  Horseman's Head into the player's deck.
    • The initial Hero Power granted is  Pulsing Pumpkins, which deals 3 damage.
    • After Horseman's Head is drawn, the Hero Power is upgraded to  Pulsing Pumpkins, which deals 3 damage and Discovers an Undead.
      • The hero portrait is also subsequently changed to  The Headless Horseman, which is purely a cosmetic change during gameplay.
      • The Horseman's Head's "When Drawn, this Casts" ability is no different from the regular Casts When Drawn ability.

"Prepare yourselves, the bells have tolled! Shelter your weak, your young and your old! Each of you shall pay the final sum. Cry for mercy, the reckoning has come!"
The Headless Horseman is the boss of Hallow's End. In the open world, the shades of the horsemen terrorize six starting towns, three of each faction. The Horseman also appears as the sole encounter in a special version of the Scarlet Monastery Graveyard, queued for via Dungeon Finder.
The Horseman was once a Knight of the Silver Hand, but is now cursed. He is of the belief that he is alive, while those who face him are dead. When defeated, he is revealed as Sir Thomas Thomson.
