Fata'fi is a great card for 6 mana, has protector,
excellent attack and health, and heals every turn!
In slower formats this is great, and in limited the
decreased amount of ability removal greatly adds to
Not a fan of this card, weak creature and a weaker
effect. One might have the idea to compare this to
Ophelia Barrows and I would say they are close by no
cigar. Ophelia can choose when and how much she
wants to heal, this guy is stuck in the same pattern
again and again. He’s still a body and more
importantly a protector, that would at least write
him a ticket in sealed. Not a very good creature in
my opinion, better options for protectors and
Constructed: 1.5/5 (a protector and then still a
Sealed: 2/5 (a hard protector and yet again a body
but these are more valuable in sealed)
Raid: 1/5 (nothing special about this one)
This ally is definately worth the cost of six. You
get a 3/6 Protector with the ability to heal one
damage a turn. Definately a strong mid-game ally
that works wonderfully in a control style deck that
has the capability to heal consistent damage. This
ally can hang around for awhile and double up as a
good, solid protector or a beatstick in a pinch.
Raid: (no information)
out of 5
Constructed: 2 out
At first glance
Fa’Tafi seems like a great card,
because not only
is she a 3/6 Protector, but she also
heals one from
herself at the beginning of each turn.
What holds her
back is her cost, and the fact that she
is a six drop cuts
down her efficiency greatly. When
constructed you want to get the most
bang for your
buck, and by turn six you should be
trying to turn the
tide of the game. If you want a
protector I would suggest Ophelia or
both are cheaper giving you more
leeway turn six,
and both are more efficient for their
costs. If you must
insist on playing Fa’Tafi though,
she’ll be perfect
in a sealed match. In a sealed match
you’ll be hard
pressed to find a decent amount of
protectors, and a
3/6 protector at that, so she’ll
definitely find a
niche in that regard. In constructed
usefulness is another story entirely.

I personaly like her, I use her in my Shaman deck,
The only problem I have with her is her cost, which
is good for her effect, but I was to make the card I
would have it cost 5 atk 3 health 5. Other than that
she is a great addishion to any Horde deck, also
great for against thoes welps that Onyxia likes to
Hello everyone, before we review our card of the
day, let me first introduce myself. My name is
Marvel Lim (yes that's my real name and here I am
writing a CotD review for WoW TCG, go figure). Been
playing TCGs for almost a decade, having an on and
off relationship with Magic, involved in quite an
affair with YGO, finally settling down with VS
System and WoW and living a simple but happy life.
I’m also a level 1 judge for the last 2 games too.
Okay, on with the review!
Today we have ourself Ms. Fa'tafi, the second
biggest protector The Horde has. (Fun fact : the #1
spot would go to Zy'lah Manslayer. Funny that 2 of
the horde's biggest protectors are both female troll
warriors, where are the males, ‘mon?)
Lesse, she's a 3/6 for 6 that can heal 1 every turn.
She's a Ka'tali Stonetusk on steroids. But unlike
him, her healing ability can prove quite useful. She
heals every turn, not just on yours. If you have
enough protectors and healers, she could be quite
hard to break through. But you would have to make
deck around her to maximize her ability. Her health
is one of the highest of the horde, though her
attack is below average for a 6 drop. She can kill
most allies, or leaving them at a pretty critical
condition. (Though other guys like Kulan Earthguard
& Guardian Steelhorn could do the same with a
In (competitive) constructed play, a high cost
protector is never a good deal. It can only hold off
1 threat at a time. Plus since she arrived so late,
your opponent should have enough firepower to take
her down in a single turn. You'd rather pay that 6
resources for cards that outright kill threats or
create more of your own. In limited though, she can
be quite a beast. In an environment where direct
ally removal are quite scarce, and with the ability
to regenerate, your opponent would be hard pressed
to get rid of her.
As for casual, like I said earlier, you can’t just
splash her and hope to kick arse. Put her in a deck
with healers and protectors, guys like Wazzuli
Wildmender, Hierophant Caydiem, Guardian Steelhorn,
Deacon Johanna, etc. and you’ll have better results.
Who knows? With the right combination and ratio of
hero, abilities and allies, the deck might be
fearsome enough for tournaments
Limited - 4/5
Pretty hard to get rid off. Her 3 attack and
regenerative ability can put your opponent into a
hard position. Pick her
Constructed – 2.5/5
Her stats and healing ability can force your
opponent to do a 2 for 1 trade. But still, you’d be
better off playing lots of aggressive allies or
neutralizing your opponent’s.
Casual – 3/5
In a deck with lots of healing & protecting allies
and/or abilities, she can be a nightmare to get rid
off. Just make sure you have enough space in your
deck for a winning condition.
Raid – 1/5
Basically you want to put lots of threats ASAP, her
cost is too restricting in an environment where easy
ally removal (mass and targeted) are extremely
Fa’tafi is a beefy 6 drop protector. It can heal
itself and that means it’s virtually invincible from
most allies. Its 3 attack 6 hit points are bigger
than the average 6 drops (moko, and Zygore). As a
protector, she’s the best there is at what she does.
The only known weaknesses of Fa’tafi currently are
vanquish, and allies that are bigger than her. For
that reason I give her a 3.5/5
Fa'tafi is an interesting card, but I don't think it
meets Protector standards, especially when we have
Guardian Steelhorn out for the Horde. Pay 6 to bust
out a 3 Atk 6 health that only heals one point of
damage from itself? If you are truly going for a
healing aspect, go for Wazzuli Wildmender. He heals
a point of damage from ALL of your Allies and I
believe even your Hero too.
Constructed: 1/5 Why?
Casual: 4/5 I love it when people do the original
thing. If you want to run Fa'tafi in your deck for
the heck of it, more power to you!!
Raid: 2/5 Just another way for you to waste a
resource against an opponent where you need all you
