This guide first appeared here.

I did some analysis on the possible 2-drop outcomes for Silvermoon Portal. Here are the results:

A. 13 cards or 20% of two drops are either

  • Beast
  • Dragon
  • Murloc
  • Important for The Curator type decks

B. 12 cards or 18% of two drops have 1 health.

  • Important for Steward of Darkshire

C. 6 cards or 9% of two drops have some sort of negative effect.

  • Darnassus Aspirant
  • Doomsayer
  • Ancient Watcher
  • Nat, the Darkfisher
  • Argent Watchman
  • Wrathguard.

D. 15 cards or 23% of two drops have a very positive effect. This includes cards that draw a card, like:

  • Loot Hoarder
  • Undercity Huckster
  • as well as cards that have an aura effect, like Pint-Sized Summoner and Knife Juggler

E. 21 cards or 32% of two drops have "bad" stats

  • This means cards that have the stats 1/1, 1/2, 2/1, 1/3, 1/4, 0/3, or 0/4. Keep in mind many of these cards have positive effects to make up for their poor stats.
  • Excluded from this count is Patient Assassin and Twisted Worgen due to their stealth, and Kindly Grandmother due to its good deathrattle.

F. 4 cards or 6% of two drops have "excellent" stats. These are:

  • Succubus
  • Wrathguard
  • Totem Golem
  • Millhouse Manastorm.
  • Kindly Grandmother could also be considered having excellent stats. Ancient Watcher is not included for obvious reasons.

This data is based on my count of 65 possible standard-format two drops, including all current and future Karazhan cards.

Great write-up! Thanks for the read, friend. It was very interesting seeing how many of the possible 2-drops are actually terrible. I've always known that 2-drops are one of the key drops for tempo, but that many bad ones... whoa. Anyway, thanks!
