Bonus if you have a type of card in play or hand.

Behold is a keyword introduced in the first set of Call of the Mountain, the second expansion for Legends of Runeterra.

Example Legends of Runeterra Behold Cards

[Hearthstone Card (Faces of the Old Ones) Not Found] [Hearthstone Card (Troll Scavenger) Not Found]

[Hearthstone Card (Troll Ravager) Not Found] Trundle

Faces of the Old Ones is a card that will ramp you if you Behold a card with a cost of 8 or more at the start of each round. Given that your deck will most likely have a lot of high-Cost cards, some early game ramp will be very useful.

Troll Scavenger is a unit that will become a 2 mana 4|3 if you Behold a card with a cost of 8 or more when you summon it, which is very high stats for the cost.

Troll Ravager is a 3|5 unit for 4 mana that gains Regeneration if you Behold a card with a cost of 8 or more when you play it.

Trundle himself does not have Behold, but his upgraded form will gain +1|+0 for each card with a cost of 8 or more that you Behold when it attacks.
