Card Information
He is the weakest of the four Elemental Lords. And the other three don't let him forget it.

Al'Akir the Windlord is a legendary minion card with the largest number of Abilities of any minion in Hearthstone.


Due to the four effects of the card, it's a powerful card to play at any stage of the game, but is weak in stats and needs buffing up to be really impactful.. As a majority of its strength comes from effects, it is extremely susceptible to Silence and having Taunt makes it vulnerable as you can't use other taunt minions to protect it. The fact that it has both Windfury and Charge gives it great damage output the turn it's played if combined with Flametongue Totem or Rockbiter Weapon and can be used to trade against multiple minions or as a finisher.

Al'Akir the Windlord was the Elemental Lord of air. He ruled over his domain of Skywall from his seat at the Throne of the Four Winds. He was once the foremost tactician in the Old Gods' horrific armies. Aligned with the corrupted Dragon Aspect Deathwing and his fellow Elemental Lord Ragnaros in their efforts to usher in the end of days, Al'Akir was defeated by the mortal champions of Azeroth, who were able to enter Skywall from the breach in Uldum and destroy the Windlord within his own sanctum.[1]
