    I just lost a game versus a priest, where I had stolen Xyrella, the Devout via Theotar, the Mad Duke. I had played Abyssal Wave earlier, and played Lady Darkvein which I triggered with a Defile, killing everything on the board, including the Shadow Manifestation.

    Later, when my opponent had a big board, I played Xyrella and it only triggered the Shadowborn deathrattle, and left out the 2 Shadow Manifestation which should have cast 2 x Abyssal Wave and cleared the board and probably have won me the game, since it would have been my 7th and 8th curse that game.

     

    Is it me reading that hero card wrong? It says every friendly minion this game, but perhaps the manifestations are counted as part of Lady Darkvein?

     

    anyways, just a bit salty...

    Its likely because the cards have no deathrattles on their own, but rather given deathrattles by Lady Darkvein. And the hero card factor in deathrattle minions, not those triggered. Hence why Selfish Shellfish triggers in her battlecry even if it was silenced before killed.

    Ah yes, you are probably right, I didn't think of that when I played it.

    when I played it, I hadn't considered that.
