Created By Edit

The following cards create tokens of Permafrost (or transform cards into it):

Strategy Edit

Permafrost should be used as a form of cheap removal. While it doesn't remove the unit entirely, it stops any unit without Endurance from attacking or blocking. It can effectively deal with annoying creatures like Dawnwalker, as it keeps them from recurring.

Notes Edit

Cardback - 2019 November - ECQ

Permafrost cardback from ECQ: The Time of Ancestors

Alongside the alternate-art version, a Permafrost-themed cardback was also rewarded to players in the ECQ.

Units with Endurance cannot be targeted by Permafrost, as they are unaffected by Stun effects. If a unit gains Endurance, for example from Infinite Hourglass, Permafrost will be removed.

Permafrost is an attachment, and can be killed by cards like Furnace Mage and Passage of Eons.

When Permafrost is removed, the unit can attack and block immediately.
