Notes

To edit these notes, go to Template:Wild Growth notes.

  • Although not stated in the card's text, this spell has the following effect:
  • If, after paying this card's Cost, the casting player has 10 available and/or maximum mana, this card will generate an LegacyExcess Mana card in the player's hand.
Example. If the player already has 10 Mana Crystals (regardless if they are filled or empty), casting Wild Growth will generate an Excess Mana card.
Example. If on turn 8 a player with 8 full Mana Crystals casts LegacyInnervate twice followed by a Wild Growth with mana cost reduced to 0 by Blackrock MountainEmperor Thaurissan, Wild Growth will generate an Excess Mana card since when the spell takes effect the player already has 10 available mana.
  • Otherwise, it will give an empty Mana Crystal to the casting player.

Lore

Wild Growth is a targeted AoE druid heal over time spell from World of Warcraft. It heals several of the most injured allies within 30 yards of the selected target, healing quickly at first and slowing down as it reaches its full duration.

Trivia

  • The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Fields of Honor" series, for the card Path of Cenarius.
  • Effects like Wild Growth are often referred to as a "mana ramp", as they allow to quickly ramp up to higher costing-cost cards.
  • In the collectible card game Magic: The Gathering, 'Wild Growth' is a long-present, basic nature-themed mana acceleration spell, serving a near-identical purpose to its Hearthstone counterpart.
  • Also in Magic: The Gathering, 'Rampant Growth' is a spell that functions exactly like Hearthstone's Wild Growth, costing 2 mana and granting the user a tapped land (equivalent to an empty mana crystal). 'Rampant Growth's' name and use also inspired the Ramp type decks both in MTG and Hearthstone.
