|Ability||Give a minion +5 Attack. At end of turn, transform it into a 3/3 Kin.|
Thumping Wave is one of Magmar's most versatile spells. Doubling as both removal and a buff, it can be used to end a game quickly or remove an immediate threat. Remember that after the minion is buffed they are turned into a 3/3 Kin, which is a Battle Pet with no abilities. This means that if the enemy plays a minion that needs to be removed you can use Thumping Wave to turn it into a battle pet, thus removing the minion's ability. This also combines well with Thunderhorn. If you're playing Vaath it's also a good idea to have a least 3 attack so you can one shot the battle pet if it attacks you. As a buff spell Thumping Wave is one of Magmar's most reliable quick damage combos. Playing it in conjunction with a rush minion like Elucidator is a one turn 10 damage combo at the expense of 4 health and 8 mana. This can be reduced to a 6 mana play with Flash Reincarnation.
- If you cast Thumping Wave on Grandmaster Z'ir then kill the Lyonar general, at the end of the turn when Grandmaster Z'ir turns into a Kin you will win.
