Strategy

Playing this card will greatly increase your damage output per round due to the Hero Power and the equipped weapon. Blood Fury has durability of eight, meaning it can dish out a total of 24 damage before it runs out. When playing Jaraxxus, he counts as a Demon, which is something to keep in mind due to cards like Sacrificial Pact. It also triggers Repentance, which will instantly lower your health to a single point.

Voidcaller can be used to play Lord Jaraxxus to not to trigger its Battlecry. This will leave a 3/15 minion on the board. Especially Druids will have hard time dealing with a Jaraxxus Taunted up with Sunfury Protector or Defender of Argus

Strategy

Lord Jaraxxus is best played when you have less than 15 Health so you regain some Health. The new ability to summon 6/6 infernals in addition to Blood Fury increase your damage output every turn for a low mana cost, making it a good addition to any warlock deck.

Once Jaraxxus is played, the warlock assumes a vastly improved position - with the possible exception of their Health. The new Hero Power and weapon empower the warlock greatly, and will likely lead them to defeat their opponent within a short time. The main downside to playing Lord Jaraxxus - provided the warlock`s Health is already below 15 - is the mana cost. This prevents most other actions that round, giving the opponent the advantage.

The increased power of Jaraxxus means that in most cases, the warlock will go on to win the game if their opponent does not defeat them in the space of a few rounds. The ability to generate 6/6 Infernals each round, as well as the use of a substantial weapon, all in addition to the warlock`s normal card play, tends to present an insurmountable advantage for the opponent to overcome, and almost guarantees control of the board within a few rounds. This generally leaves a short window in which the opponent has a reasonable chance of destroying the warlock before their victory is assured. Exceptions to this state of affairs include mage Freeze/spell decks, which may be capable of finishing the warlock regardless of the state of the board.

The state of the board is crucial when deciding the right time to play Jaraxxus. If the opponent has a selection of strong minions while the warlock has none, playing Jaraxxus may give them just the chance they need to finish the warlock off. Be that as it may, if the board is empty or fairly evenly-balanced, the warlock need only hold their ground for a little while before Jaraxxus` powers lead them to victory. Cards like Twisting Nether are ideal for play in combination with Lord Jaraxxus, allowing the warlock to even the odds before tipping them substantially in their own favour. Jaraxxus is also generally less risky to play when the opponent`s hand is small or empty.

Another common strategy with this card involves taking a lot of punishment intentionally, so you can summon Molten Giants, and then using Jaraxxus to heal yourself. Note though that the original Health of your hero will be set to 15 once you replace it with Lord Jaraxxus, meaning that summoning Molten Giant will cost more mana at Jaraxxus` 15 Health (full Health) than a warlock`s 15 Health (down by 15 damage). This also means that it is not possible to heal Lord Jaraxxus above 15 Health.

Notes

  • When Lord Jaraxxus becomes a hero, he is considered to replace the previous hero. As a result, any modifiers affecting the previous hero will not be transferred. This includes Armor and the Frozen state. Be that as it may, less specific effects such as Millhouse Manastorm and Loatheb affect the enemy player regardless of their current hero, and will not be cancelled by playing Jaraxxus.
  • A 1/1 copy of Lord Jaraxxus created by Shadowcaster will still replace your Hero with the 15 Health version of Lord Jaraxxus and replace your weapon as normal.
  • Brann Bronzebeard triggers the Battlecry twice, but this will not have any special consequence other than seeing the animation twice.

Known bugs

  • Using Light`s Champion, you can successfully silence the extra attack granted to Lord Jaraxxus if the player has played Heroic Strike earlier on.
  • Using Light`s Champion, you can successfully silence the extra attack granted to Lord Jaraxxus through Druid buffs such as Savage Combatant`s Inspire effect, and the extra attack granted through Claw and Bite.
  • Using Light`s Champion, you can successfully silence Freeze effects from Lord Jaraxxus.

Trivia

  • Lord Jaraxxus was added fairly early in the game`s initial development. At the time the game had two heroes for each class, one representing the Alliance and one representing the Horde, the Alliance warlock being Wilfred Fizzlebang. When a developer from the World of Warcraft team who was playtesting the game commented "I hope there`s a Lord Jaraxxus card in this Wilfred Fizzlebang deck", Ben Brode realised "There should be a Jaraxxus card!" and set about designing the card. Given the Alliance warlock hero at the time of Jaraxxus` design, the card therefore originally had a good chance of being played by Fizzlebang, faithfully reenacting the classic scene where the gnome summons and is destroyed by the eredar lord.
  • In World of Warcraft`s Nighthold raid, players can loot the Golden Hearthstone Card: Lord Jaraxxus, a toy with the text "Use: Destroy your hero and replace it with Lord Jaraxxus." The toy`s presence reflects the recursive relationship between the two games, with Lord Jaraxxus gaining a second wave of popularity as a Hearthstone card years after his original appearance as a World of Warcraft raid boss, with this second incarnation serving in turn to inspire a tribute item in the original game some 8 years later.
