Knights of the Frozen Throne Logo
The professor's experiments are running amok!

The Plagueworks contains the most twisted experiments ever produced by the Scourge. In this wing players will face two new forms of abomination in Festergut and Rotface, who currently protect their devious creator, Professor Putricide.

Professor Putricide is the second boss of The Upper Reaches in the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion.

Notes Edit

Putricide comes with 30 health and 15 armor. His Hero Power changes during the fight, starting off with Mad Science (reducing cost of Secrets to 0), then going to Madder Science after his armor is removed (reduces cost of weapons to 1), and finally to Maddest Science after his renewed armor is removed (changes cost of all cards to 5).

  • Phase 1
    • Starts with 30 health and 15 armor, with Mad Science Hero Power.
    • Plays Mad Scientist and Growing Ooze (1/1 At the start of your turn, gain +1/+1.)
  • Phase 2 - after armor is removed
    • Changes Hero Power to Madder Science
    • Summons Festergut (3/5 At the end of your turn, deal 3 damage to all enemy minions.)
    • Regains 15 armor
    • Gains Tentacles weapon (3/6)
  • Phase 3 - after final armor is removed
    • Changes Hero Power to Maddest Science
    • Summons Rotface (4/6 Whenever this minion survives damage, summon a random Legendary minion.)


  • Putricide has lots of Mage spells, but also pulls secrets from all secret-wielding classes.
  • Run a healing or taunt deck. A mage deck heavy in secrets and board clears works as well.
  • If you have Eater of Secrets, it helps with the first phase. Secretkeeper, especially if played on turn one, can be a great starter.
