Explosive Evolution Calculator: The numbers behind the Card

Explosive Evolution Calculator

Explosive Evolution is a new Card that got released with Chapter 2 of Galakrond’s Awakening.

Transform a minion into a random one that costs (3) more.

The card text might seem strong, but how strong is it really?

We made a tool for Explosive Evolution (and other transform cards) for both Standard and Wild, let’s look at some Examples

Standard

General Stats

Before we go in detail for a specific deck, let’s just look at what you can expect (Note: 2 Mana is in the tool since you can also use it for Mutate).

We expect for our Example that you play Explosive Evolution on a 3 mana minion (so we need to look at 6 mana)

  • You have a 2.82% chance to get a charge minion (Reckless Rocketeer or Argent Commander)
  • Almost every 5th card has a Deathrattle (for example good ones like Khartut Defender, but also some that doesn’t do anything like Cursed Castaway)
  • You have 4.23% for a Divine Shield Minion (Argent Commander, Sunwalker or Evasive Wyrm)
  • If you are looking for a specifc minion, you have 1.41% to get it (there are 72 minions in total at 6 Mana)
  • The average minion will have following Stats: 4.6/5.0, almost the half of them have a keyword that isn’t Battlecry

Specific Stats

For this Part, Twitter user IamNovaChrono send us his Theorycraft.

The tool allows you to enter your Deck Code and will show you how Stats will change, what is the best Target for Explosive Evolution?

Playing the card on Mogu Fleshshaper provides you with a 12 mana minion, on average it has 7.5 / 8.0 stats.

Playing on Grand Lackey Erkh is also descent, you get a bonus of +3.0/+3.4

  • You have a 1.02% chance to get a charge minion (Skycap’n Kragg)
  • Every 14th card has Deathrattle (For example Malorne and Silver Vanguard)
  • There are no minions with Divine Shield or Lifestteal

If we just need more stats playing Explosive Evolution on EVIL Totem is our best idea, with other minions in our deck we don’t get that many extra stats.

You also might often want to play the card on Totems or Lackeys, on others cards like Vessina it can be good when she took damage.

Wild: Use the tool urself
