On Play: "The storm is upon you."


By playing 4 Unstable Forms on North-Wind Herald the turn after you play him (see Notes), you can "cheat" out an early Scourge of Frosthome.


While North-Wind Herald is free, it has no influence requirements.

North-Wind Herald's cost is zero on turns where its free condition is met, and will reset to the original cost when the turn ends. This can be important for cost matters effects, such as Unstable Form and Equivocate. Unstable Form will transform a free Herald into a 1-cost unit, but playing Unstable Form, as your first spell for the turn, will then transform it into a 7-cost unit.

North-Wind Herald is part of the wind heralds cycle, with East-Wind Herald, West-Wind Herald, and South-Wind Herald. Assemble each of the wind heralds in play to create an Avatar of Winds.

North-Wind Herald is part of an incomplete cycle of unit cards in The Empty Throne which are free under specific conditions.
