Ever heard of the DeathRattle ability?
The DeathRattle ability occurs when the card it’s associated with is removed from play. There are numerous cards with different DeathRattle effects, making it a very versatile ability.
Furthermore, its use is not limited to any specific classes (albeit a few).
Commonly-Seen Cards with DeathRattle:
Silence is a good counter against cards with DeathRattle, as it removes their effect, making them less of a trouble to go against!
There have been bugs reported, with regards to DeathRattle (e.g. Two DeathRattle minions removing each other together; whose DeathRattle will proc first?)
For this question, according to Lead Designer Eric Dodds, the minion that is summoned first will proc its DeathRattle first; the answer to it is still being debated as player experiences prove otherwise. So, please take note of possible consequences before using them!
